My morning gratitude for:
- My son Ryan and his Mimgee (grandma)!
- The cool crisp weather this morning. I am no fan of cold weather but I can appreciate the special feeling of a crisp morning sunrise on a clear day. Beautiful!
- International Justice Mission and the work they do across the world with women and children in slavery, being trafficked, and being neglected in systemic ways. Our church had a speaker from IJM yesterday and they spoke of our call to justice- the call to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, welcome the immigrant, and care for the orphan and widow among us. May it be so and may God grant our church and my family the wisdom and courage to fulfill his call and serve the vulnerable.
- Elana’s passion for kids who don’t have the love and support that allows them to sleep easy and trust the people around them to love them fully.
