One By One

Up until I now, I have been counting His gifts and blessings under the title "One Thousand Gifts."  I am continuing to count, and will post a list each Monday under the new title "One by One."  I chose this title based on the chorus of the old hymn "Count Your Blessings."

Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your many blessings, see what God hath done.

  1. I love it!! Great title. So what is the new book you are lost in now?

  2. Hi Sharon! Actually, the gifts that I will be listing for the next few weeks are a backlog from this summer. To be honest, I'm not sure which book it was, but it may have been one of the volumes in the Hawk and the Dove series. If you haven't read that series, I highly recommend it...very, very good! :)
