1000 gifts has been reached.

I was going to complete my 1000 gifts before 2010 ended, but alas, when I was near a computer, I kept forgetting to blog!  So now, it is time to finish that journey and begin a new thankful list...

I got this little gift in a newsletter I just received.  These 10 predictions are definitely gifts (976-986)

With all the problems the world is facing, it can be unsettling to the mind. It's wonderful to know Who really is in control and that "the Word of God endures forever." ~ I Peter 1:25

Top 10  Predictions for 2011
1. The Bible will still have all the answers.
2. Prayer will still be the most powerful thing on Earth..
3. The Holy Spirit will still move.
4. God will still honor the prayers of His people.
5. There  will still be God-anointed preaching.
6. There will still be singing of praise to God.
7. God will still pour out blessings upon His people.
8. There will still be room at the Cross.
9. Jesus will still love you.
10. Jesus will still save the lost when they come to Him
Okay, only a few more to go before we're at 1000!
987.  Playing games - we've spent the last three days playing games with our friends and family,  I love games!
988.  We had 7 days in a row without an explosion from our explosive son.  That's probably worth 7 gifts, but I'll just count it as one.
989.  Our vehicle did not break down during all the driving we did in the last week.
990.  I am very thankful that they changed the days of our Christmas vacation and therefore the kids aren't going back to school until Wednesday.  They can catch up on sleep the next few days.
991.  I am thankful for encouraging friends.
992.  Friends you can laugh with are a gift.
993.  Parents who invite you over for lunch on the spur of the moment are a gift.
994.  Watching my children play piano is a gift.
995.  Well-made, Canadian products that I can give to my children are a gift.
996.  My son asking for prayer for his 95 year old great-grandma this morning was a gift I will treasure.
997.  The thoughtfulness of our friend's son toward his mother was a delight to us and to the Lord (definitely to his mother).
998.  Following the Lord's leading and that obedience becoming a blessing to someone else is a gift.
999.  The thoughtfulness of our congregation in the cards and gifts we received - gifts!
1000.  The salvation given to me by my Saviour...a gift without number

and now, the gifting can continue as this list is not limited to 1000....

Blessings in the New Year to one and all.

(it took 2 years to get 1000 things on this list)
