Today I'm thankful for the simple pleasures....
The day beginning and the ability to get up out of bed and hit elliptical before a 12 hour day at work...even though that meant before 7am! Which is early for a pastor on a Monday morning.
that I washed my dishes before leaving for work this morning.
for the God's presence at Bible study through the group of friendly, loving folks in attendance. Loving and supporting a man who lost his wife last week.
for dippy eggs.
for the opportunity to laugh and bond with colleagues in ministry.
for homemade jelly on my pb&j.
for 5th & 6th graders who thoroughly enjoyed making playdough.
for homemade soup, sweet potato fries, and a no sugar, yet super tasty dessert!
for enthusiasm for evangelism.
for a cat who likes to play after being alone all day.
for an empty sink when I came home from work.
for a box #7 a box labeled "christmas 2 of 2" which just needed to be moved into the attic for storage...not unpacked, but out of the spare room and into it's proper place.
for the chance to watch LOST and break down 6 previously emptied boxes for recycling this week:
for warm blankets and hot cups of tea.
for thin mints.
for a helper around the house:
for friends far and near.
for a warm house and a comfy bed.
for the blessings and challenges of this day and whatever tomorrow brings.
Until the next box . . .
