joy #thankful

WARNING: THIS POST IS ABOUT EXPERIENCE AND FEELINGS CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK

I awoke this morning filled afresh with joy and hope! Thanks be to God!

This just popped up on my phone:

Isaiah 43:4 ESV

Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you,
I give men in return for you,
peoples in exchange for your life.

I was pleasantly surprised by an email from an old friend. It was a joy to hear from him! As I wrote to him, I realized how very full of joy I was.  Here is an excerpt of my answer to him…

“this trip has been amazing. God has shown up in pretty amazing ways (as you blog followers have read about). He continually shows up in unexpected and unimmaginable ways.

I just thanked him that as I begin year 57 I feel the closest to him, maybe ever, love Anna more than ever, could not be prouder of our family (especially III & Lee), I feel healthier than I have in 15 months (and THAT is huge) and I get to serve Him daily.

I am blessed way better than I deserve and growing in my gratitude to Him.”
