One Thousand Gifts
by Aubrey U
This book, One Thousand Gifts, changed my life, my perspective; it awakened the very essence of my being and breathed new life into my soul. It brought me out of the lake of regret & lack of purpose I was drowning in and made every little thing I did a thing to ponder and appreciate. It brought wonder back into my life. The wonder of Jesus and the grace that comes with every breath I take. I wanted to drink in the sun, study a ladybug, splash in the mud with a child, inhale the scent of fresh baked cookies, stop and pick wildflowers, say yes to the windows down and yes again even in the rain. :: Its just Jesus, its only Jesus, its always Jesus ::
By inspiring a frame of mind that believes that life is truly found in the little things, the little moments, it frees you from the tyranny of constant achievement and success. You are free to live in the moment and love it for all it is worth because you’ll never get it back; at least not quite the same way. Also grace, and thanks; learn to give thanks for the tiniest of graces :: Give thanks always because it always proceeds the miracle. ::
Ann Voscamp brings a fresh perspective to the crush of everyday life that is sometimes raw, sometimes beautiful and sometimes both, all at the same time. I recommend One Thousand Gifts to everyone I meet and buy copies for everyone I love… its just that good.
