"What He ordains for us each moment is what is most holy, best, and most divine for us." Jean-Pierre de Caussade

A Cup Overflowing, 761--780

A few years ago, Don Moen wrote a song entitled "Think About His Love" that quickly became one of my favorites.  I have used it often in worship.

Think about His love, think about His goodness,
Think about His grace that's brought us through.
For as high as the heavens above,
So great is the measure of our Father's love.

How could I forget His love
And how could I forget His mercies?
He satisfies, He satisfies, He satisfies my desires.

Yes, that's what this gift list is all about: thinking about and upon His love and goodness. No doubt this pleases Him -- and it profits my own soul as well.

#761  reunions

#762  a night of Buster (SF Giants), Braves, and lifelong buddies

#763  an early morning renewal at a well -- a.k.a. Cathy and Dick's deck

#764  the tinge of pink in morning clouds

#765  discontent that reveals an ungrateful heart which leads to repentance

#766  legs that ache from staying up too late

#767  a midst the sounds of morning, a buzzing bee just outside the window 

#768  my daddy -- and for the way he still makes it easy for me to love the Father God

#769  new light-green growth on the water oak extending itself from the seasoned branches

#770  my funny, funny daughter-in-love

#771  a kind morning disposition reflected in the voice

#772  the vibrant "gold" on a goldfinch

#773  chocolate cupcakes and sticky icing on the fingers

#774  winds of Pentecost that blew through our summer "book read" this morning bringing much needed healing

#775  the pause in the music

#776  a peacock by the side of the road ... and then another!

#777  the smell of morning

#778  the sound of a small critter that has made its way into my house ... and hidden

#779  for a son-in-law who seeks to follow his dreams

#780  my mom ... and homemade cookies in the freezer -- "You are amazing!"

He satisfies ....
