1,000 Reasons to be Thankful


This post is a challenge. A challenge to YOU.

Yesterday I read a post by Natalia at Simply Faithtalking about a book she was reading called One Thousand Gifts. (Update: She found out there is actually some non Biblical and wrong content to the book and stopped reading it so NOT recommended). Anyways, she shared that a friend dared the author to write out a list of one thousand things she was thankful for.

I liked the idea so well that I decided to try and do it myself. I’m going to try to write at least 50 each day and finish it by the end of this month (April).

I want YOU to join me! 

I would love if any of you would like to do this with me!!! So far I have written 127, but as I go along I am slowing down. 😆 Here are 25 from my list (in no particular order):

  1. Jesus
  2. The Bible
  3. Clouds
  4. Quiet mornings
  5. Puddles
  6. Birds
  7. Laughter
  8. Peppermint
  9. Music
  10. Sunday school
  11. Creeks
  12. Warm socks
  13. Popcorn
  14. Ladybugs
  15. The color blue
  16. Books
  17. Campfires
  18. Hot chocolate
  19. Hats
  20. Pizza
  21. Flags
  22. Parks
  23. Freedom
  24. Waterfalls
  25. Sunflowers

I hope you are feeling as inspired as I am! If you take this challenge (even if you decide to do just 50 or 100 on your list) then leave a comment below!!! I will try to write a post when I finish so you will know if I met my goal. =) Also, be sure and go check out Natalie’s blog before you go!

  1. Okay so totally doing this… but a friend warned me about that book. There’s some stuff that isn’t biblical. And I feel really bad for recommending it… I deleted the post because I don’t want to support it. I went to one of the last chapters and it was talking about her going to Paris to ‘make love with God’ and I just put it down because that’s not biblical. So the lesson about gratitude was REALLY good. But I’m probably not going to finish the book… if you do read it please be careful!
