Multitudes on Monday's!

The challenge has been given for blogging people to willingly list their "one thousand gifts".  I have thoroughly enjoyed reading others who have posted what they recognize as gifts given from the hand of God, little and large.  The challenge is to post on Monday's and let the list keep getting larger.  I am going for the challenge.  Even if I miss a Monday here or there, over time I will have listed JUST one thousand of the many gifts that God has given to me, His child.  These are in no special order, simply random.  Thank you Father for your gifts! 
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.  James 1:17

  1. This is going to be good! I love the family picture! You all look terrific!!! The eagle painting looks really nice in that frame. I hadn't heard about this challenge, and since I don't blog, I will just enjoy yours!

  2. Ohh, this is great! Can't wait to see what you're up to!

  3. yay - glad you started this blog! :)

  4. Wait - - - did you just START this blog yesterday???

    Good for you.

    I'm no "mega blogger" (meaning I don't have more than 1,000 followers) but I have learned that if you participate in linky parties and then visit and leave comments on ALL the links, you will get a lot more traffic to your blog a lot faster.

    I try to go around to ALL the links in a linky party in which I participate - - - but MOST bloggers only come back to those who leave comments on their blog.

    So - - - - get on your tennis shoes and start hiking around to all those blogs at Communal Global! And GOOD LUCK!!

  5. Aww thanks for the tips and encouragement! Yes, I did just start this personal blog yesterday. I know, I am WAY behind times. But, we have a family ministry blog at but then I wanted to get involved in these various blogging activities if you know what I mean so I am venturing out on my own and ready to the learn the ropes! I best get on those tennis shoes like you suggested!

  6. Another thing - - - if you will go into your profile to edit it, and then look for the place where it asks for your e-mail address and put it in - - - it will be easier for new bloggy friends like me to get in touch with you.

    The e-mail address won't show up on your profile or your blog, but there will be an e-mail link there, and when people like me get an e-mail alert that you have left a comment on our blog, we will be able to reply to it. Right now your e-mail alerts say "no reply commenter"

    We just moved to Wisconsin from Indiana this fall, so I am a true blue Colts fan - - - but that won't make your hubby much happier than if I was a Packer Backer. Hehehehehehe

  7. Kari! I added your blog to my side bar so I can keep up with you : )
    I find that if blogs aren't over there I have a hard time visiting people. I love your gift list.
    I love your kids pictures.
    I love your heart.
