I've read 1 book this summer; actually only 1 book for the year.  I'm not finished reading it yet, but it sure is a good read!!!  So good in fact, that I am taking the challenge--to count 1000 gifts.

It's hot. It's the middle of summer.  And me, the girl coming from Nebraska of hot summers (with not much humidity) has lived here for a little over a year now.  Originally from Kansas, the land of humidity and heat, you'd think I'd be used to these sweat, drenching, smeltering summer days, but I'm not.  The Lord has me here---for my appointed time---and so I wait and count.  Counting the Thousand Gifts---gifts I have, gifts I've been blessed with, gifts I love.  I count because I have to. Because I need to--to survive summer.
