Joy Dare 5.28.12

Giving thanks to God in community for His gifts ...

3 gifts that made you laugh
the debate over love languages
our thanksgiving memory
grown brothers and sisters in one room...loud love and laughter
3 gifts found in community
rides and lunch provided
texts of concern and hopeful prayers
even a week of medical crisis can be a very good week
gift in a plate    grilled pineapple with pork chops and onions
in a pot    mashed potatoes with bacon and cheese and garlic
in a package    creme brulee coffee with family and friends

3 hard thanksgivings
painful infections
bondage to bed rest
the disintegration of MY plan for this week
a gift worn    pants one size smaller
a gift white    Greek yogurt
a gift whispered    "Daddy's asleep but I need to say to him Happy Birthday Daddy!"

3 gifts found in church
organ and piano duets
new songs of praise
Spirit and Truth
3 gifts in today's work
the laptop and downloads and all my messy files
a household of children who help with [mostly] a smile
the husband called out to work on a holiday & his birthday ... answered with a glad heart.
