Last July I was deeply moved by a post I read, so moved that I began making a list everyday in the hopes of getting to a 1000 by Christmas. Counting daily gifts He's given. What an amazing steamy Summer it was, walking in thankfulness. I didn't want it to end, that wonderful feeling. But somehow, in a fit of silliness, my brain must have equated that calm happy time with the season because as Winter approached, I felt discontented, unwilling to let go of my sweet Summer.
I think I stopped counting somewhere around 200. Of course I've thanked Him for things. Of course I've seen how wonderful He is. But journaling them, looking for them... Just a few pebbles a day in the vast sea of that infinite arrangement, but so important. Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you.
