As someone who has kept a list of things for which I am thankful for several years, I find in Ann Voskamp a kindred spirit. "I am a hunter of beauty," Ann writes (p. 53), "and I move slow and keep eyes wide, every fiber of every muscle sensing all wonder, and this is the thrill of the hunt.
"I hunger to taste life.
"To taste God."
Ann Voskamp's list came out of tragedy. Some of her theology may not quite jibe with yours. She is a poetic writer whose style is not for everyone. (Some of the reviews on Amazon of the original best-seller are scathing.) But in the small pieces of these selections, I find them not just eye-opening, but soul-opening. Her photographs are exquisite. The script of the items on her list gives a touch of intimacy; the decorations on the page enhance the whole; in short, this is a beautiful piece of book-making. It will find a place in my house, not on the coffee table where it would only get shoved aside to make room for the latest Smithsonian or National Geographic, but someplace where I can pick it up and read it in small bites like the bedside or even the bathroom and be reminded of why I keep searching for specific people, events, gifts and answers to prayer for which to thankful and in which I can see God's hand in my life.
Challenged to list 1,000 gifts by a friend, Ann has written and collected thousands of blessings. Some of which she shares in this book (and in One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are). This is a beautiful little gift book, never a plain page, each elaborate design and the personality of Ann shining through. A book you won't want to put down, but will want to read straight through and soak in. And read again.
Ann Voskamp truly has a way with words. An unusual style, one that slows you down and gets you to thinking. And personally realizing that I should be more thankful. And wondering if I can find 1,000 things for which to be thankful? Now I can't wait to get out my camera and my journal...
