I am thanking my God this week for:
the stunning revelation that Jesus knows the exact cost of the precious oil poured out for Him, out of my alabastar jar…and may nothing be held back. (Matt 26)
my Garmin running watch.
sweet baby Jonas in the nursery and how all the ladies let me hog him each week.
the High School Mission retreat this weekend. What a great group of kids to mentor, and what an amazing group of adult leaders to share that blessing with.
sons growing strong. Buying Josiah OH MY–size TWELVE tennis shoes, yesterday.
the coconut/pina colada smell in my little car from the cute deodorizer. It’s in the shape of a flip-flop shoe, hangs from my rearview mirror, and makes every drive feel like a mini tropical vacation. Such continual happiness from $2.29!
having time to stop at Starbucks before church.
the soundtrack to life right now: The CD “The Generous Mr. Lovewell” by Mercy Me
the way Caleb looks 2 years old again, when he sleeps.
a bloody toenail and the crazy pride I felt…I ran long and hard enough to cause that?!
John. always, always. John.
