One Thousand Gifts/Ann Voskamp: I have actually been reluctant to re-read this book, afraid that it would resonate less than it did the first time. I shouldn't have worried. Gratitude, grace, and a good God can never be preached too often. The chapter on trust and stress remains my favourite.

For the Thursday of #PassionWeek: There are no words... the verse that chokes up and changes a life:  " 'And on the night He was BETRAYED...  He broke bread & lifted it up & GAVE THANKS.'  If Jesus can give thanks *in that*?  I can give thanks in everything." [ ~ One Thousand Gifts, A Dare to Fully Right Where You Are #1000gifts

I agree with this, except I believe that hope is an expectation. And having hope for the future is healthy and good.
