I awoke this morning with my beautiful wife beside me, glowing with a radiance that defies description. In my heart there was an overwhelming sense of gratitude that I was alive to enjoy just having another day to share with Lori Buick and encounter the goodness of God in all aspects of my day. There was an acute awareness of the beauty and simplicity of life, and the precious encounters we share with people as we rub shoulders together in the day to day affairs of the day.
At the office, Gary who sits close by shared about Thanksgiving this weekend and we spoke of the preciousness of family, belonging, and coming together, and there again was this sense of gratitude in my heart. I am so thankful, even as I struggle and battle what I have never battled before, there was this blooming flower, a flower of gratitude in my heart, coming into a fuller bloom. What are you thankful for today?
