life blessings

I sent an email to my class of US-2s yesterday, and I wanted to share parts of it here because it really captured the essence of how I was feeling yesterday even though I've been feeling a little sick.

So I had a retreat this morning with my staff at the church. (I don't really like staff retreats.)

Today was different, and as it blessed me, I wanted to share it with you.

This morning we headed off for the nature center in Albuquerque, walked around a bit, discussed what we would bring if we were missionaries to Albuquerque in the 1850s, and ultimately ended up at the Rio Grande River. People call it a mighty river, and I suppose that in some places it is, but for the most part it is pretty much a stream while it is in ABQ. It was peaceful sitting there and taking in the sights and sounds, it is rarely a grey day here, and today has been one of those, but the sun was trying to peak out from the clouds.

We headed back to have lunch, but before we did so, we played parachute games. Yes, you've got 9 adults trying to knock a ball on one side or the other with a parachute. I haven't had so much fun in forever.

I suppose it is all a matter of perspective. I spent all weekend dreading this morning, and now I feel refreshed and ready for whatever tasks lay ahead of me.

So what are some blessings in your life. Where have you seen God in the little places? In the sun trying to sneak out of the clouds, in the way a ball floats through the air, in laughter with people that you cherish...

If this isn't a blessing filled week, what can I be praying about for you?


God is faithful, God is good, and God is always speaking.
