Day 4~ A gift cool, warm, sun-soaked
I'm thinking these are going to be a bit tough at the moment for me. But........as always I am up for the challenge.
A cool gift is the fan that blows lightly on me in the morning when I wake and in the evenings when I go to bed.
My warm gift is the way my friends make me feel when I need a lift of love and encouragement. They have the right words of love and just the perfect ear to listen which makes me warm and loved all over. Thank you to each one. You know who you are. I love you all so very much. 
Sun-soaked would be my beautiful buckets of plants on my patio that soak up every bit of sunshine they can. Which grows them into beautiful plants. Thank you Lord for the sunshine that shines upon them and me.

3) The oven is on for the first time since late June the first signs that Autumn is in the air.
What signs did you find as gifts of Autumn today?

Day 8~ A gift made, masked, marveled
Today these seem so over whelming to me as I look at them not feeling well. So as try and find the gifts in each one of these please know that each day is a gift no matter what it holds.
My gift made would me the home remedies that I have been taking as I try and feel better. Some I enjoy and aren't bad tasting yet others not so much liking. But still fighting this illness knowing that God has already healed me. 
My masked gift would the friend that I miss and seems so far to me to reach. The masked friendship that I pray would turn back in the direction that it needs to go. Thank you Lord for this friendship and the love it offers me even when it is masked over with live and things that seem to be in the way of what you want it to be. 
I marvel at the beauty of each day even when I am not able to lift my head off the pillow. The gift of love and friendship that travels the miles with prayers love and encouragement beyond what I can imagine. Thank you for the friendships that marvel me each day with their beauty and gifts of life that they share with me daily.

Hmmmmm......... these may be interesting as I look through my day of blessings.
My scented gift could be numerous things. As I think of the many scents of the day. I think I will be my perfume and the perm I did on Edna as my scents of the day. One good smell and one not so good....but is a blessing to her and me as I make my living. Thank you Lord.
Scrawled would be the notes I write and find from others scrawled on scrapes of paper. One today would be an address I needed to bill out a client I thought I had lost it and then found it. Yea!!!
Started would be my home work that I need to finish for my Rut Busters course I'm taking. Need to get busy on that one.

Word definition is tried here...........but I think we can do better and as a gift much better.
1) I was drawn out and feeling all alone when the world woke me with a beautiful smile in the morning light beaming through my window.
2) I was feeling drawn and then a little burst of energy entered in with lots of fun that brought my joy and with a fun filled day. 
3) When I'm feeling drawn I can always go to my Father in heaven and know He will give me all the rest I need when I let go and let Him.

Day 15~ 3 Gifts paired
1) The pairing of man and his favorite football teams. Hubby's favorite time of year. Not sure if it is a gift but...it does make him happy! Gives me a reason to think how silly he is. But...I have a sister that is nuts over football. So....it is a family affair!

Day 18~ A gift fixed, folded, freckled
Tough ones for me today. I'm thinking I have had some tough Joy Dare's lately. Oh okay...lets see.......
The fixed gift I think will be that little Daniel had his teeth fixed today in town and I got to enjoy him and his mommy today after he saw the Dentist. A lovely unexpected gift through little one needing his teeth fixed.

Folded would be folding the ingredients into making the homemade salsa this evening along with folding or I should say mixing the ingredients for our homemade creamer as well. Both very yummy!

Freckled................??? Not so easy............. All I can think of is a freckled face laughing child...I cannot even say I know one right off hand. But just the thought makes me smile. So.....I'm thinking this could count thinking about that. What do you think??

Day 19~ 3 Gifts in conversation
1) Do I have time to do a man's haircut and shave? Why yes I do! What a blessing to be able to shave his head and clean up his facial hair for him. May the Lord continue to heal and touch him as he heals from a stroke. What a blessing to be able to help him feel better about his appearance.
2) My friend Rose sharing her bible study on revelations with me this morning. Telling me what she is learning and how much more it is. Love talking about the word of God!

Day 21! 3 Gifts in information
WOW! There is so much information out there and not sure what I gathered today as a gift in information. I'm sure there was plenty though.
1) Working on my Rut Busters program and learned being focused and positive and finding the match in the day with an open mind really does work.
2) Knowing what the weather is going to be was an important factor today in information; even with the rain the pool party was still fun and a success. Glad I went even if it did rain. It was a nice event and break in the day. A wonderful blessing
3) We get endless information all day long filtering through our mind and some is important to know while others is just trivial useless information we learn on our journey in life. What we do and how we filter and file is what shapes us and makes us who we are.

Day 22~ A gift rattling, receding, reclaiming
The rattling of Hancho's cage in the morning when she wants me to open her door and take her blanket off. But....really she likes to rattle around in her cage with her toys all day long. It makes me feel good to know she is there. What a wonderful watch bird.
My waist line is receding that is very exciting! Loving this ......it has been a while since I have seen it recede and I'm loving it.
I'm reclaiming lost dreams and lost hopes and desires. Love finding them and reclaiming them into my life. Seeing where they will take me.

Day 27~ A gift unexpected, uneven, unpopular
Some toughies ....... But surely workable.
Unexpected gift sitting this afternoon in the still quiet of my living room. Then taking and watching my program before anyone arrived or came home today. Was a lovely three hours. Very unexpected considering I thought I would be doing something else.
Uneven gift is the grounds in my apartment complex that I wonder and walk around all the time. I'm so thankful to be able to work around and enjoy the outdoors.
Unpopular gift would be the bills that come in at the end and first of the month. They represent so many things. The home I live in the food the items I enjoy in my home. Numerous things I am grateful for. But... very much a very unpopular gift when the bills roll in. Thank you Lord for the provision of meeting each one of those bills above and beyond the need.



September Joy Dare

Day 28~ 3 Gifts shy
1) Shy of having enough albums to put all of my DVD's in. More on there way so I can complete my project. A gift because it will clear and clean up and de-clutter
2) The clouds, rain, and wind were not shy in their turbulence of the storm and the effects it was having in its path. A gift because there is beauty in the sky and the storm before during and after hand painted beautifully for us to enjoy if we choose.
3) No one was shy in eating up the wonderful Zucchini casserole that I made for dinner. It was wonderful!

1) One gift shelved was my cleaning my garage. It is a gift not being out there in the wet wind and cold cleaning it. And a gift to be in where I stay warm and dry. Knowing I will be out there soon doing the work that needs to be done. A gift definitely shelved for the time being.
2) Having a free for all dinner tonight was shelved for homemade chicken rice soup instead. 
3) The organization of my Summer and Winter clothes are getting re-shelved for the season closing and the one upon us.

2) The rain puddles that shine when the light breaks upon them and they glisten in the light bringing a mirrored reflection.
3) The shine of the lights that lead me to my door as I arrive home from my evening out at my Mary Kay meeting.
