Do you have any regrets from 2012?
I know that is a silly question. I’m guessing that most of us have a regret or two.
One of mine is that I started Ann Voskamp’s “Joy Dare” last February and was mostly faithful to it, most of the time. (Please click the link to learn more.) Maybe you have been well-intentioned like that too. And then when my computer crashed…well that was the end of my little online journaling of gifts. I must say, that it has been one of the best things I have ever done, along with reading Ann’s book, One Thousand Gifts.
This is a New Year…and we get fresh do-overs. And maybe…it would help if we would do this together. A community of joy…encouragers. I know that I am going to need your encouragement more than ever. Today I embarked on a new journey…one I never imagined, and one for which I so much need your prayers.
We are already counting our blessings every Sunday – Joy Day! I plan to continue that. But, let’s take a big step and start counting gifts every day…3 a day…until we reach the end of the year. I dare you to do it and see the difference. Will you take me up on it?
Here’s the link to the Joy Dare prompts. You can print it out, or refer to it on line, like I do, each day. I keep a document on my desktop to click and jot down the prompted gifts each day. And often I add a few extras also. Really…there is so much to give thanks for every day. You might choose to create a journal or maybe even purchase Ann’s devotional journal. Whatever form your recording of gifts takes….please join me on this journey and take the Joy Dare!!
