And the unsettled stomach,
Much to be thankful for.
Reconnecting with a high school friend.
Anticipation of lunch with yet another friend
And a private viewing of her wedding pictures.
An evening out with
Two of my favourite men.
A beautiful orchid
In the centre of my dining room table.
Word of two successful surgeries.
Supportive online communities.
The list is virtually endless.
When I started to write this post,
I was thinking about
How crumby I felt.
And then I began to
Count my blessings.
Though it’s still hot
And the humidity hasn’t broken.
Though my stomach is still
A little iffy
And I’d like to get a little more done
Before retreating to the comfort
Of my air-conditioned bedroom.
I realize I could sit here and type
Until morning and still only touch on
A fraction of the blessings
That flood my life.
A good reminder.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts (Colossians 3:15-16 NIV).
