It is the end of a long, and very good day. Today I woke up amongst friends, lead worship with someone I trust, embraced friends I hadn’t seen in a long time, gathered at a table with more friends, spent time driving in the rain, was welcomed home by my puppy who was thrilled to see me, ate with my folks, and spent an evening laughing with even more friends.
It was a very good day, and I am suddenly struck by how very blessed I am.
I read a quote on Pinterest the other day which said “Imagine if you woke up today with only the things that you had thanked God for yesterday.” The point, of course, being that we don’t thank God enough for the good stuff He brings our way.
So tonite I just want to take a moment to say to God: Thank you for my many blessings. I know that even in listing here the ones I have encountered today, I have only scratched the surface of all I have to thank You for. So thank you, thank you, thank you.
“Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows.”
James 1:17 NIV
