Yesterday I stopped by a local nursing home to check on an elderly gentleman who is part of our church family. He’s been there for a few weeks now but is expecting to go home in a couple of days.
He said that it’s been hard to be there because there are a lot of older folks who have been there a long time. He mentioned that his brief stay has made him mindful of how fragile life is and how grateful he is for the life that he’s enjoyed; for how blessed he’s been. Quite an attitude for a fella who has battled Parkinson’s Disease for more than a decade.
Last week Susan was under the weather and four ladies from church took it upon themselves to surprise us with meals for several nights. What a blessing! Thank you!
If you read my blog Sunday you know I dropped my laptop and it quit working. A good friend helped me out by replacing the hard drive and reprogramming it to factory settings. I’m inspired by his servants’ heart. Thank you!
My audience of those reading this blog has nearly doubled in the last month. I’m humbled and encouraged by all of you who are sharing this journey and inviting others to join us. Thank you!
I have a wife who is not perfect but is absolutely amazing in many, many ways and is my best friend. I’m staggered by her patience with me and grateful that she chooses to continue sharing the journey even when it feels like a roller coaster at times. Thank you!
Most days I take for granted or forget to appreciate all that God lavishes us with in Jesus. Love, grace, mercy, forgiveness, intimacy, peace, joy, new life, truth… and the promise of being with us forever! Thank You!
I’ll be honest. Most days it’s just as easy for me to see the glass as being half empty as it is for me to see it as half full. I needed the reminder to pause and be grateful. What do you have to be grateful for and to whom do you need to say…
