So, I’ve been reading Ann Voskamp’s blog a lot lately. I’ve known about her blog for more than a year but never really made a commitment to faithfully reading it until now. And I’ve been missing out.
Her voice is lyrical, her pictures are stunning. (Sorry I’m so lame with no pictures around here, people. But photography is not my special gift.) Her first book was published several months ago. I haven’t read it yet but I bought it for my mom for Mother’s Day. That’s how much confidence I have in Ms. Voskamp.
Her book is called One Thousand Gifts and from what I understand, it’s the story of her journey of gratefulness. What I love about her is commitment to gratefulness in the simplicity of the daily. It’s that calling I’ve talked about several times around here of daring to not “despise the day of small things” (Zechariah 4:10).So, this month we’re joining Ann and all her readers at A Holy Experience and keeping a “Gratitude Calendar.” We’ll talk about it on Thankful Tuesdays throughout June so be ready to share.
Go download the calendar and the weekly gratitude booklet as well (both are listed at the bottom of her post). And let’s fill them up and then tell each other all about the sweetness.
Happy Thankful Tuesday! And happy Grateful June!
