My Psalm 27

(v. 1-3, 13-14)

The Lord is my light and my salvation -
what shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life -
why shall I be worried?
When my well-laid plans turn to mush
and I have no really good back-up plan,
God will guide me.
Though I have no clue how to get through the next week,
my heart will not fear;
though none of the answers I need are clear,
even then I will be confident...

I am still confident of this:
God is good, his plans for me are good,
and I will see that goodness
in the next week of my life - and beyond!
So I will wait for the Lord;
I will be strong and I will take heart,
and I will wait for the Lord.

It's the little things...

Here's some little things that I'm really thankful for today, here at home...

~ Reading a good book in a comfy chair.
~ Having Kevan read to me while I crochet.
~ Eating homemade rolls with cherry preserves.
~ Working on a great jigsaw puzzle with my dad.
~ Listening to, singing, and playing Christmas music.
~ Smelling the smells that come from mom's crockpot.
~ Watching my family's favorite movie again and still laughing.
~ Feeling big Beau puppy kisses on my cheek to wake me up.
~ Enjoying the colors of fall all over again in the mild, late changing South.
~ Sitting with my family around the table, laughing and telling stories long after we're done eating.
