A Thousand Gifts (Ann Voskamp)

on July 23, 2011

Not often that a book completely changes my paradigms…but this book has done it. I started reading it a few days before the birth of my grandson Samuel Job, who is with Jesus for safekeeping until we meet him again in heaven. I had begun practicing eucharisteo, framing God’s gifts with intentional thankfulness, and thus my entry # 34 was Samuel Job, 4 lb. 13 oz.  A good gift that we did not get to enjoy on this earth, but another reason to yearn for heaven.

‎…Giving thanks is only this: making the canyon of pain into a megaphone to proclaim the ultimate goodness of God.” Ann Voskamp
