thinking about the weddings of both our girls last December. thinking of those special celebrations.
thinking of Denine going with me to work in Hawaii this past January. thinking of the things she has done to care for our family.
thinking of friends that have gathered around our table for great meals and conversation over the years. thinking of how much that looks like communion.
thinking of days like the one in this photo with my friend John as we rode our bikes out of Red Rock Canyon. thinking of sitting around the table in the evenings with a group of guys in Costa Rica.
thinking of how Denine says "Don't go" every time I leave the house for a road trip. thinking of things that make her laugh.
thinking of The Epic Man Trip on the Blues Trail in Mississippi. thinking of catching that amazing fish with Kevin.
thinking of the laughter that I heard last week when our girls were home and they were in the living room hanging out with their husbands while Denine and I cooked. thinking of all the good things our kids have in front of them.
thinking of sitting with good friends last night and talking about our lives together. thinking of the laughter when we are together.
thinking of all the good men and women placed in our lives over the years...good people who have loved us well.
thinking of how BIG Jesus is. thinking of how he invites us to join his work to bring his kingdom. now.
I am grateful. I am humbled. And I don't take it for granted. I am blessed.
