Sounds like an admirable goal.
Stay tuned for my #5 to find the source of that gladness.
Glad to be back posting today!
Life is a whirl right now, and I missed two weeks of recounting my blessings.
I’m back, linking up with Susanne of Living to Tell the Story, sharing my five faves from the week.
This week’s blessings:
1. A quick moment to write this post. I have been so very busy with teaching—both high school and college—this past two weeks, that I’ve barely posted at all. I’ve missed it and felt compelled to get back to the computer. Glad to have this moment. I keep telling myself, “This is for a season.”
2. Teaching college. It is just awesome. I am really loving it. As I posted on Facebook the other day, my high school teaching enriches my college teaching and vice versa. Blessings all around!
3. Support for our India belle. My son Jonathan and his sweet wife Kristen are being featured this week on Give 1 Save 1 – Asia. The concept is for those who read to give a dollar to help bring a child home. Those dollars add up, and every little bit helps. There’s a nice post and their adoption video posted over there—so click on over and get to know them!
4. Some good deals. My college boy did some shopping on me before he left this fall, and he got a great coupon that could be used in September. I just used it during a great sale, and I came home with some much-needed new clothes! I don’t shop much, so when I do, I make up for lost time…
5. A quote:
“The greatest honor we can give almighty God is to live gladly because of the knowledge of His love.” (Julian of Norwich)
This made me think. Do I live gladly? And is the source of my gladness the knowledge of His love?
Wishing you real gladness this week,
