The good news is... I am keeping up with my HelloMornings Challenge each day, in spite of the darkness. The verses that I read brighten my morning... a welcome balm for the soul as the sun rises at the same time.
It's been another busy week for our family... an out-of-the-ordinary one for me as I had to venture out of the house a few times for meetings... which made for an interesting, but jam-packed week.
The verses I read this morning are a good reminder... to be thankful... even for jam-packed weeks:
Always be joyful and never stop praying. Whatever happens, keep thanking God because of Jesus Christ. This is what God wants you to do. ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 CEV
With that in mind, this week's 1,000 Gifts list continues with #1072 - #1090, grace-gifts which have no end...
