I had a great birthday...worked from 7-1, went to see our good friends the Gaskills off at the airport (Rwanda bound!) and then Mike took me out for dinner. I had a coupon for one restaurant that ended up being out of business, so we went to Giannos...and it was very tasty:). Mike also bought me the book 1000 Gifts, by Ann Voskamp. It's a keeper. I can tell that much and I've only read a tiny bit. She focuses on gratitude and finding reasons to thank God no matter where you are or what circumstances you are in. As my regular readers know, this is an area of my life that I constantly need help in. Why is it that our natural inclination is to grumble and complain? I truly believe that "God lives in the praise of His people;" I have seen the evidence in my own life. When I consciously force myself to thank Him in the midst of trauma/difficulty, when I find reasons to praise Him regardless, I change, even when the circumstances don't. And this is what Mrs. Voskamp shows us....so pick up a copy at the library!
