A Cup Overflowing, 341-360
Enter with the password: "Thank you!"
Psalm 100:4 -- The Message
#341 the sound of rain after a season of drought
#342 the way steam escapes from the spout of a hot pot of chocolate chai tea
#343 a good night's sleep after a day of labor and exercise
#344 15 minutes on the phone with a friend ... and just being who we are to each other
#345 the way God calls me out on a bad attitude
#346 that "thankful" overrides "grumpy" every time
#347 that God shows no partiality -- but that "anyone who fears Him and does what is right is acceptable to Him" (Acts 10:35)
#348 full moons and foggy mornings
#349 the 100th Psalm
#350 being able to stand in faith for a friend who feels she has no hope for a future
#351 the excitement I experience when I'm to see my little fellow
#352 that God, in whose hands are the depths of the earth and the heights of the mountains, has time for me
#353 wide-eyed, open-mouth expressions
#354 turning the last page of Sacred Space 2012 and knowing that I had met God within its pages
#355 Rembrandt's "Woman with a Pink" -- and the profound silence
#356 lighting the first candle of Advent
#357 pathology reports that read "benign"
#358 the way the sun finds its way through the tree branches and brings light and warmth to my sacred space
#359 snuffed candle smoke -- instead of waving it way, allowing it to wrap itself around me
#360 being invited to lunch by my eldest son -- and his paying!
Just ordinary moments, made holy ...
