It seems I hardly ever get to this blog anymore because of the busy job I have. I could make time, I know, but it doesn't seem high priority on my list. Which, is kind of sad because it is a place to put down thoughts and to let others know what's happening in my life. To that end I want to talk about how grateful I am today for my life and all the wonderful things that are in it. I have a husband who loves and supports me, and my ministry, which at this time of my life is pure gift. We will celebrate our third year of marriage in December and it has been a very good three years! I am so grateful for family - and especially the addition of a new little granddaughter, Anya Genevieve, who was born on the 12th of August. She is beautiful!! My other grandchildren (all three are her siblings) are wonderful and healthy as well. My daughter and son-in-law are blessed, and I feel blessed to be "Nana" and to share in this family's life and activity. What a great and wonderful blessing to me at this time of life. I could go on and on because I feel that life is so good right now. I am also a realist and know that life can have difficulties as well. However, I choose to live each day in the reality that relationship with God and with others is most important and I believe I will have faith enough when times aren't so good. I have certainly had hard times in my life and God has been with me through them all, which has led me to a deep and abiding faith in the presence of God in my life and in the world. Just wanted to take a moment to share how thankful I am that life is good.
