Something happened last Thursday………
A revelation of sorts in my heart.
I’ve been working on a retreat that is coming up in a couple of weeks where I am speaking on authentic relationships with God and with our friends.
Struggling at times with the right words, the right stories, the right direction, I’ve found myself second-guessing so many things that have happened in my life.
Thursday, my eyes had reached their limit. I couldn’t look at a computer screen anymore. I asked God to please show up while I was cleaning……………
And He did.
As I swept the kitchen floor, a song came on that I had never heard before. I felt as if God had just played my life story through music.
And I believe He played your life story too.
I’ve listened to the song at least 40 times since then.
I’ll share it with you soon, but I’m still processing all that it means to me, and I’m thankful for this time to soak it in.
So, this morning as I transition from a busy weekend of kids at home, and friends stopping by to have gnome pictures taken (I’ll share that on another day, too! If we’re Facebook friends, you already know what I’m talking about) and a Super Bowl party at our house last night, I’m diving back into my study.
But before I could begin, I thought of all of you and thought of what every day should begin with……… a time of thanks.
And I headed to my living room to share another room of thanksgiving with you.
Thank you, first, for sharing life with me. Won’t Heaven be great when all of our praise and thanks will be going straight to His throne without ceasing?!?!??!!
Grandma’s oil lamp…..As I cooked lunch yesterday, I thought of all the meals her hands prepared for Grandpa, for us, for friends…Thank you for her never-ending inspiration. She burns deep within me. Men on the moon…..Who would have ever dreamed it possible? Thank you for the memory Tim’s parents kept safe in their boxes of memories and then shared with us to share with our kids…Thank you for men and women who risk their lives to do unheard of things for mankind….help me be willing to take “one small step” towards whatever You desire from me.
Yes it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Too many to count. Thank you!
So, today, as you venture into yet another week of life here on earth, I hope you’ll take time to look around and count your blessings! They are everywhere you look!
So much love from me to you,
