Sitting outside this morning, enjoying the cool.
Basking in the quiet.
Reflecting on the week almost past.
Thanking God for the activity, for health,
for healthy grandchildren and daughters who love Jesus
and demonstrate His love to their children and to me.
Thanking Him for their safety in traveling back to their homes last night...
Thanking Him for friends who invited us to dinner in their home last evening
and for excellent food and fine fellowship around the table.
Recognizing the goodness of God in the timing of that meal.
Catching up with my "through-the-Bible-in-a year" reading.
Cherishing the fact that my reading included some of my most favorite
Scripture passages--Romans 11-16 and Ephesians 1-3.
Hearing the gentle (but unmistakable) corrections and encouragement
from God Himself.
Repenting of my selfishness and pride.
Celebrating His mercy and grace.
"We don't need to retire to the desert to meet with God.
He can come to us at our ordinary duties."
