Today I’m starting a Gratitude Journal. The idea isn’t a new one; for years, I’ve been tossing this concept around. But recently, author Ann Voskamp inspired me to create a Gratitude Journal that focuses on the theme of One Thousand Gifts.
It’s my hope that the pages of this journal will overflow with:
A thousand things I am thankful for…
A thousand gifts that God has blessed me with…
A thousand prayers and praises to my Heavenly Father…
The time is ripe for me to embark on this journey of thankfulness –
To actively express appreciation for the gifts God has given me
Instead of grumbling for the things I lack.
And so, as I begin this journey
I dedicate this book to my Heavenly Father
As an act of praise, worship and thanksgiving.
I am excited to see where this journey takes me.
I can already feel the winds of transformation stirring within my soul.
And so, the journey of a thousand gifts begins…
A Personal Note
Thanks to all of you who have expressed offered words of support and encouragement about this project! Because of your interest, I have decided to share portions of my journal online. Today I’m sharing the first entry in my new gratitude journal – the Dedication Page – and I’m participating in the Random Journal Day Link-Up and Scripture Sunday.
