Well, I've been reading "one thousand gifts" for a week, now. Click on the picture to order this book.
So, what do I think about it?
While I'm finding it hard to read it, due to the fact that it seems the author starts rambling, alot; I still have enjoyed it. I just have to read it in bits and pieces.
The first chapter tells of two stories of children dying. The reason for this, I think, is to show you why the author felt the need to have joy in her life.
The second chapter, she has a horrid nightmare, that makes her realize that she wanted to live life to the fullest. She reads Luke 22:19. She reads a word ~ Eucharisteo. She begins to really pay attention to this word, and what it means. She pretty much did a word study on this Greek word.
An excerpt from chapter 2:
" I whisper it out loud, let the tongue feel these sounds, the ear hear their truth. Charis. Grace. Eucharisteo. Thanksgiving. Chara. Joy.
A triplet of stars, a constellation in the black.
A threefold cord that might hold a life? Offer a way up into the fullest life?
Grace, thanksgiving, joy. Eucharisteo.
A Greek word... that might make meaning of everything?"
Wow!! Very powerful!
The rest of the chapter is about how she spends a few days thinking about and studying how to have grace, thanksgiving, and joy.
I cannot wait to read the next chapter!!
