I recently attended a ladies retreat hosted by my church. The weekend's teachings were based on Ann Voskamp's book, One Thousand Gifts. Her book talks about listing all the big, and more importantly, small things that happen over the course of the day that remind us of God's love. She encourages everyone to keep a journal of these gifts.
As a craft, we created an altered journal to keep a list of our gifts. I have made these in the past when I used to paper scrapbook. I really enjoy the creative process of it and it's actually easy to create one.
