I'm Grateful

Its been forever since I've had time to write a post!
This new job has me up at 6am and I'm not usually in bed til 11pm. - so, time is not in unlimited supply for writing these days.
Seeing as its summer and I LOVE the water, each weekend I spend my precious days off enjoying family, floating on the lake, and often leading worship. Can't get much better than that!

When the summer buzz has settled, I'll write the awesome story of my new job, and the new position that it places me in. To say the least, it is custom ordered by God.
I now work at The Leadership Centre for Willow Creek Canada. I have so many leadership resources at my fingertips that I could read and watch training for the next year............ and still have not seen it all. I am grateful to God for that.

In the business of summer fun, and learning at my new job.................
I am grateful for:
  • God's divine leading and favor
  • The presence of His Holy Spirit and how it brings me direction, instruction, revelation and peace.
  • My beautiful family. The older I get........... the wiser I become to the fact that I am blessed beyond measure for my 3 beautiful kids and a handsome, adventurous and strong husband.
  • My new job, and all the awesome people there who daily bring me words of encouragement and make me feel so valued.
  • Relationships, relationships, relationships!!! I will always love them........... people are eternal, and so unique! I am blessed to have many unique and individual relationships.
  • Music. Any and almost all kinds. I have come to realize that music has been in my blood since I was a young child, and I have been created to not only live a lifestyle of worship, but to encourage others to do so.
  • A beautiful home and everything that I need. I am rich, and grateful.
  • The realization that gratitude paves the way for His presence and continued direction and favor in my life.
  • That it is a new day, a dawn, a new life, for me!
  • Lamentations 3:21 Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: 22 Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. 24 I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him." 25 The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him;
