I was given "One Thousand Gifts" by a man at church on a random Sunday, for no special reason at all. He simply tapped me, and the woman sitting on the other side of him, on the shoulder and handed us each a copy. When this happened, 2016 was wrapping up, and I had been on a nearly year-long quest for "full". So, please understand, that I have no doubt in any part of my soul that this was pure God-grace.
The book is written by a Canadian farmer's wife who is searching for joy and fulfillment in a life of homeschooling six children and preparing three meals per day (plus snacks). She decides to make a list of 1,000 things she is thankful for...1,000 reasons to be joyful in the mundane tasks of everyday life. Not 1,000 huge, massive miracles. No. 1,000 moments of light shining through windows, children laughing and grace being poured out in the most simplistic and beautiful ways.
She writes and prays and focuses on the word "eucharisteo", a Greek word that literally means "to give thanks".
I ain't a Canadian farmer's wife, and you probably aren't either (unless you are, in which case, heeeeey), but her words and her heart are every single thing.
