Thoughtful Thursdays :: Joy Dare 2012

A few months ago I posted a review of One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. I've been counting gifts ever since. I've found it's impossible to be grouchy and grateful at the same time so gift counting is something I wanted to be intentional about in 2012.

In December, I wrote about Joy. Joy in suffering. Joy in the Moment. Our real reason for Joy.

So imagine my Joy when I discovered the Joy Dare for 2012. An opportunity to count 1000 gifts in 2012, along with thousands of others, and rediscover Joy all year long.

If you look at the top of this page, you'll see a "One Thousand Gifts" tab. You can click there to see my one thousand gifts in 2012. Ann's made it as easy as imaginable with a calendar and prompts for every day.

I'll also be tweeting (@LynnHBlackburn) my gifts (#1KGiftsDare) several times a week.

Won't you join me in intentional joy and thankfulness this year?

I just got One Thousand Gifts for Christmas. I look forward to reading it, especially after reading your review.
