Wow, these months pass by so quickly, don't they?? I can't believe November is only five days away! Do you find the second half of the year always goes twice as fast as the first half? Yikes. I have my theories about why that is, but that's for another time. On to today's busines!!
This week, among many many other things, I've been thankful for:
☼ Reading side by side on the couch with hubby in the evening instead of watching TV (we're both huge Clive Cussler fans, especially his Dirk Pitt series!)
☼ Teaching my girls piano is more enjoyable than I thought it would be
☼ The privilege (and responsibility) of continuing to write the story of the spread of the Church begun in the book of Acts
☼ Watching a movie with the girls that actually MEANS something and teaches them about faith in God and spreading the Gospel (we watched The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry)
☼ The ability and training to translate a bunch of circles, lines, and other mysterious markings into a beautiful musical story
☼ The privilege of praying for a woman I've never actually met, but whom I know is in desperate need of prayer
☼ A challenging theological discussion with the girls over lunch including such fun topics as: how come it seems like God makes mistakes or changes His mind? and, Where do newborn babies go if they die?
☼ Reading my Bible and noticing things it feels like I've never noticed before, over and over again!
☼ The ability to see and appreciate the beauty of nature (like horses and foxes at sunrise)
☼ Aprons and the smell of fresh-baked bread!
And last, but not least...
