I have had many a lofty thought rolling around in this old brain lately.
Lots going on in this world to inspire a lot of pondering, to say the least.
Yet, I find the moment of putting pen to paper…oy, showing my age here- 😏
I should say, putting fingers to keys- everything I think ought to be said vanishes like a puff of wind.
Therefore, I will leave aside all more ambitious thoughts and adhere instead to what I feel He wants me to say as we gear up to a busy and bountiful week.
I just want to say how grateful I am to be His.
The idea the Lord of this vast universe takes note of a humble speck like me is absolutely…
Astonishing. Just, well, astonishing!
May I never cease to be in awe of this fact!
The grace He bestowed on us through Christ’s death and resurrection is absolutely the most beautiful truth in this life.
That He has allowed me to partake of it overwhelms my heart.
I am grateful for the people He’s planted next to me to share in that truth, the love He graciously pours out through them, the dear, growing, learning, amazing children He entrusts to my hand.
For blessed forgiveness, both the opportunity to extend it as well as to receive it.
For the incredible miracle that is simply redeeming the time.
For second chances.
And forthieth. 🙂
Because, boy, do I need them!
Furthermore, I am grateful for this welcoming place of fellowship and you wonderful folks who share in this pursuit of the written word with me…
As well as in pursuit of His word with me!
So, in this spirit of gratitude, I say thanks-for writing your terrific and terrifically challenging posts.
Thanks also for reading mine. ☺
May your Thanksgiving be joyful, surrounded by His love and goodness.
Prayers and blessings to you, dear friends!
