February Joy Dare – 1st –14th

Being thankful is very important to me. Thankfulness has such rich rewards.

3 gifts red – 1. beets, 2. the soft red yarn of my WIP shawl, my goal to have it finished to wear next winter, 3. red ink, I love writing in red.
3 gifts on paper – 1. receipts for groceries, God’s provision, 2. a journal for thankfuls, 3. knitting patterns, more than I could ever do.
3 gifts found in writing = 1. when I write it clers my thoughts and helps separate the emotion from the problem, it seems to open a window to God almost as if the writing is a prayer and God brings His words to me. 2. poems, 3. wisdom from blogs I read.
3 gifts when bent down = 1. dirt in the corners I can’t see when standing up, 2. the right place to prune the roses, 3. the lifted up arms of a toddler are found. . .
a gift stitched – the blocks of Deanna’s quilt
a gift hammered – the walls and roof of the greenhouse
a gift woven – the cover of my footstool

3 gifts surprising – delightful new nursery found, 2. butternut squash soup, delish and simple, I have all the ingredients 3. Blood sugar # after lunch in range
3 times hearing laughter – 1. laughing with friends while talking about our children, 2. during a ‘May I’ game at old jokes, 3. a silly 1 year old while she ate dinner
