Crazy this week? Me too.

Just for a few minutes as I type this, I am going to enter that sacred place of remembering how much I am blessed.

I am thankful for:

long-time family and friends as we press on past each others faults and quirks to community, for my husband who knows more of my flaws than anyone else and still chooses love everyday

new people in my life this year: a new small group, new writer friends, new neighbors, a new pastor, new church initiatives for justice

moments of peace - the beautiful ever-changing Indiana landscape in it's glory and fierceness, stolen moments of reflection, beautiful art and music

moments of stress - that come from a fulfilling life as musician, teacher, writer, and wife

moments of victory - seeing a student "get it", turning a phrase to make it fit, connecting with another person's heart, seeing another person live justice as a way of life

moments of defeat - learning a painful lesson, producing character in me, reminds me that I am not home yet

What are you thankful for? Comment below...
