Today I am thankful for . . .
857. The gift of Being Able to Sing on a Worship Team at our church. This was the highlight of my day.
858. The gift of Being Asked to Share a God Story at church this morning, regarding my Hands-on for HANDS-ON homeschooling ministry. I think I royally messed-up in the way I told my story . . . I was so nervous, my words just kind of got jumbled up and I didn't tell the "story" the way I had envisioned in my mind. It is so much easier to write thoughts down in an understandable way than it is to speak them aloud in front of hundreds of people. I guess I should have written my story down and just read it. I'll know better for next time.
859. The gift of Connecting with a guy whom I haven't seen in about 20 plus years . . . he grew up in my hometown, but is about 10 years older than me. He was more the friend of my sisters, but he happened to be in our church today and I guess he recognized me (he didn't mistake me for one of my sisters, which is rather unusual), so he came to find me after the service to give me some words of encouragement and affirmation. It was a cool encounter.
