OK. I wasn't going to do this for quite a few more months, but I feel now is the time. I would like to share my gift list with you all, and you are welcome to have a read if you're interested, bearing in mind that it is VERY MUCH a work-in-progress! My aim is to reach 1000 gifts, eventually..., maybe..., in about 10 years' time!!
I am publishing this in the hope that it will make me accountable to you who stop here occasionally (and to myself also) to add to my list more regularly than I have done in the past few days. This is not something I want to be legalistic about, but I am very aware that it is all too easy for me to find things to grumble about. Instead I want to "be transformed by the renewing of my mind"; I know the Holy Spirit is working in me, renewing the way I think, so that I see good where I might have seen bad, positive where I might have seen negative, beauty where I might have seen ugliness.
Welcome to this journey!!
