The Greek word  Eucharisteo means thankfulness, Jesus gives thanks as they partake of the Lords supper, he offers up thanks at the feeding of the five thousand,this word Eucharisteo stood out as it kept popping up over & over upon reading the book One Thousand Gifts


In One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are, Ann strives to find the meaning of life and fully embrace the surprising truth from the final scenes of Jesus’ earthly life. In the hours before Jesus’ execution, he took bread and gave thanks. This fresh, heart-wrenching book unveils the long forgotten wonder that through the imitation of Christ’s thankfulness, we too can experience a life of joy.

as the pages turn ,the tears fall as you read of how one woman  reaches out for joy through her darkest hours, the pages leave  you with anticipation of what will happen at the end of the book, simple things that are taken for granted  are added to the list of one thousand gifts
