monday gifts

The past few days I’ve been sick with a summer cold. It’s been frustrating to miss the grand opening of my church (at our building, we’ve been a mobile church until recently) and just life in general. But it’s ok, I probably need the reminder that I don’t keep everything spinning. I can step back and rest. The Lord is my shepherd, I have everything I need.
Even with a fuzzy brain, I notice things differently from a place of rest. Everyday, beautiful things that I didn’t earn or deserve: they are grace. I’m thankful for…
a day of cupcake baking with Val.
sandwiches labeled “Fralerie” and “Dawnabeth.”
crazy puppies to play with.
a sunrise before seeing Anna off at the airport.
prayer, together.
“get well” and “I love you” video messages from a toddler.
BLT’s & Goodwill shopping- making fun memories with my clients.
old pictures of me and my brothers that make me laugh hysterically.
the way those little plants grew up over the summer.
the colors of this time of year.
