Practicing contentment by remembering the graces of the week and practicing gratitude by giving.
Sunday slipped past me. Now it is Monday. Handyman returned safely from a 183 mile bike trip through the Catskills last week. He made the trek along with 120 youth and leaders and seemed to have a great time. This Monday is the first Monday of soccer coaching of the season for HandyMan. He's a volunteer assistant and thoroughly enjoys getting out on the field with the high schoolers.
While HandyMan was away, GTot was awesome! Sure she missed Daddy but she was an absolute pleasure of a kid. One morning last week, I'm not sure which one, she woke up speaking in full and complete sentences. Her verbal communication is growing exponentially on a daily basis and it makes life so much easier! I received wonderful bits of respite throughout the week (thanks GM and KW!).
Last week was also Vacation Bible School at our church. We had about 30 kids every night coming to play and sing and eat. The week was topped off with a carnival night that seemed to be enjoyed by all.
Life is full. My priorities are still being adjusted. We are blessed.
Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light.” (James 1:16 -The Message) May the light of the Father brighten your week!
