June Joy Dare...

A few years ago, I read parts and pieces of the book 1000 Gifts by Ann VosKamp.  There has been a bit of controversy in the reformed theological community about some of the latter chapters of this book, I didn't get to that part.  But, what I did read caused the axis of my world to tilt a bit, and it was for the better.   The idea of looking for gifts, being blessed instead of bitter, a life lived with thankfulness the knee-jerk response were not new to me... but not always my natural tendency either.  So, in this season of change, moving, new pastures to set my eyes upon... I and a few friends are joining in "counting our gifts".  For more information or to join in the fun...  https://www.facebook.com/AnnVoskamp

So for today, 3 Gifts Orange:


 1. Orange roasted sweet potatoes for a simple Sunday lunch. These are a favorite of Nate's... providing good nutrition for a boy who seems to struggle eating anything healthy.




2. A big Orange T- a reminder of where I come from & how crooked that path was from there to here...




3. An assortment of orange balls- and the children who are healthy enough to play with them, often leaving them strewn about! (Especially after the tragedy that struck close to our new home and our new church family)
