Today's weather, news, events: The sun is shining! The Pope is resigning. And Valentine's Day is approaching! (It's Mike's turn to plan this year... Should be fun!)
Today I feel: A little tired and overwhelmed. So much to do this week - in addition to birthdays, Valentines, and fun. I'm preaching on Sunday - and it's not an easy scripture I'm working with! Buggers!
I am grateful for: Sunshine. A good night's sleep. Birthday lunches. Greeting cards. Real mail.
Spiritually I: am well and looking forward to Ash Wednesday and this Lenten season.
People in my thoughts today: Penny, Diane, Kerry, Emily, Finley, and Dawn - The birthday girls!
Magical moments (comfort, peace, and love): Last Sunday, I had a fun and enlightening conversation with a man at church - someone who has attended for a long time, in a wheelchair, brought by an attendant... I always welcome him and hold his hand when I talk to him - but he's never really talked back, and so I assumed maybe he wasn't able to communicate well. Big surprise to me, this Sunday we had a full, humorous, conversation! He knew my name, knew I was married, knew my husband's name... and he was funny, mischievious, and playful! I loved it. Definately a magical moment.
Donations of the heart (acts of kindness, sharing, caring, and forgiveness): Prayers, notes, and hugs.
For a better tomorrow (goals, ideas, etc): Still working on waking up earlier and taking time to meditate and pray first thing in the morning...
QotD: What is your biggest obstacle right now?
Myself. Laziness. Fear of failure.
