Important Notice!!! We are currently dealing with a serious health crisis involving David. Computer time and blogging will be taking a backseat until we can get this situation under control and, hopefully, save his leg. Please bear with us as we go through this difficult time. Thank you for any prayers that you can offer up.

Also, if you'd love to help cheer him up, please subscribe to his YouTube channel. That would really make his day! The link is at the bottom of all of my posts.

Thank you and Merry Christmas to all of you!

Day 4 – My Favorite Book

I have had many favorite books over the years. This year, my favorite book so far is One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp.

The book is about being thankful even when things are bad. In the thankfulness, we can find the joy that is missing in our lives. Being thankful can help to bring us peace in addition to joy.

It is hard to hold onto anger and be thankful at the same time. It is hard to be sad and thankful at the same time. By filling our time with thankfulness, we move the anger and sadness outside of our hearts to make room for the joy. The bad doesn't look so bad anymore.

One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are
