Contentment

Last night I as I was driving from the library to the church it hit me “I have everything I need.” Not just a simple “I don’t have to run to the store because I got everything I need” thing (which I did because I had gone to the store before the library).

In that moment I came to a realization that I like my life -both who I am and where I am at. It was this beautiful, simple, satisfying, spiritual moment. There was no praying or singing but I was one of the best moments of worship for me because this my life is a blessing for God. I don’t think I have ever been that completely content with everything about me before. I have everything I need…that is my thankful Thursday thought this week.

Life is good!

Praise the Lord! It's great to be content.

On another note-in response to your question about the dry erase marker: we have a calendar white board in the kitchen, so it lives up there. But my mom put one of those self-adhesive magnet strips on the back of the marker and stuck it on the side of her fridge.

And, was there no Fringe this week? We watch it on hulu since we don't have tv, and it's not up yet this week.

Liz, I want to hug you right now

Dena - how do you watch Hulu in Canada?

Dena, thanks for the marker suggestions. Sadly, there was no Finge this week because of American Idol. Next week I hope...

Steph, I've watch Hulu in Canada...I think it was Hulu.
