It occurs to me that it’s been a minute since I wrote a gratitudes post. So I invite you to join me today in the listing some things you are grateful for. They could be big or small – anything that you are thankful for, counts. It also occurs to me that I have a lot to be thankful for right now. So let’s get started!
I am grateful for my new condo, the lovely view I have, and the walking trails that are close by. It has been about a week and a half here, and every day I’m grateful to be here. there are still boxes and STUFF everywhere and unpacking is slow, but steady. Still. I love my new place. I am grateful. (Here are just a few of the pictures I’ve taken from the new place.)
I am grateful for new things happening at Graceview. We’ve made changes to the way we are doing Sunday Worship, we’ve added Zoom Fellowship Hour and Zoom Advent Lunches, we’ve distributed an Advent Devotional to the congregation, committees have planned meetings and socials on Zoom. We’ve planned out Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. So many good and different ways that we are learning to ‘church’ in 2020! I am grateful. (Here are a couple of pictures of the colouring I’ve done so far in the Advent Devotional)
I am grateful for friends, family, and church family. Even though we cannot gather as we once did, and that is admittedly difficult on all of us, every day someone I care about makes me smile. We can’t be together, but neither is any of us alone. God is with each of us and when we reach out to each other, we are together in spirit. And I am grateful.
Until tomorrow, dear friends, may you have much for which to give thanks, and may you know the One who is the Great Giver.
