Three gifts that start with N

On this third day of November I search for three gifts that start with "N".
A new day, a day in which I embrace. A day in which gives me another chance to whittle down the to-list. A new chance of loving others better than the day before. 

Night, a chance to rest. A chance for my body to recharge.



Never ending love. Knowing that He loves me no matter how many times I fail. He knows me yet still loves me. Forever. I am humbled and thankful.




What are you thankful for today?


Gifts

A few years ago I was in the practice of counting my gifts daily. Unfortunately I let that habit slip away and I can tell. I've forgotten how blessed I am, I'm easily "stressed out" and negativity flows from my mouth. This is a practice of gratitude is one that I need to revive in my life and what better month than November, the month of thanksgiving. Would you join me?

Ann Voskamp makes it easy by offering a pretty printable to place on your refrigerator, in your planner or on your bathroom mirror. This can either be used as a reminder or you can follow her word prompts as you search each day for three gifts.

I missed yesterday but I'm not going to fret about that - I'll just do yesterday's today!

November 1 - Three gifts eaten

1. Oikos Triple Zero Banana Cream Yogurt with a handful of walnuts ~ breakfast on the run as we rushed off to church in the morning. On a day designated as "International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church", I am so…

The clothes make a woman. Or maybe not.

I've started wearing my "work" shirts when I leave the house. Once upon a time I had "work t-shirts" that were different from my "leave-the-house/nice t-shirts". 

It kinda of happened gradually until one day, while searching for a nice t-shirt to wear out, I decided that the "work" shirt I had on was really one of my favorite t-shirts and therefore was worthy of leaving the house.

Sorry, world. Deal with it.

Then I realized that the world really cares very little about what I'm wearing so I said, "Sorry self, get over it."
