The postman delivered my book last evening. The book, written by Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts. I was so excited to receive it. Despite all the snow and ice on the roads the postman got it to me.
I read the first chapter and into the second. I wanted to be prepared for the video book club that starts today. To be able to discuss. To share.
Mrs. Voskamp is an author who has the skill of a surgeon, her words cut through me like a knife. From the very beginning, she challenged me…caused me to consider.
How do we live in a world full of pain, in the shadows of what should have been? How do we live a life of thankfulness in the midst of it all?
Radical gratitude. Not what you might think.
