A thanksgiving offering
Monday, August 03, 2020
As night descends, I think about the challenge of "bragging" on something significant about self. What made me smile today is that I am over my burnout. After working outside and recalling what I was only able to do a year ago, I am a new person. How wonderful not to get winded, not get overwhelmed by paperwork, having energy to do small things like dishes, and simplifying my life.
Bragging isn't the word: it is thanking God for giving me new life; for allowing me to realize that I can get healthier, serve others better, and enjoy life again. I love going to bed tired because I am physically tired--in a good way and not mentally. It is knowing I have friends who have my back and support me in good days and not so good days.
How do I thank the Lord for all the good that God has done?
