August Joy Dare (week 3)

Just counting and keeping up with the Joy Dare! I'm pretty sure I might hit 1000 even before December because there have been some days where I have counted more than three! How exciting is that! and I know that I'm not even counting all the gifts God bestows on my each day! It's such an encouragement to go back and read the gifts! I know that God gives so much more than I could ask or think, I just have to be looking for it!
