Morning by Morning (5/20/16)

My morning gratitude for:

  1. Florence, Italy, where I loved for more than a year as a sophomore at Pepperdine.
  2. The church people in Osaka, Japan, that I got to serve, and in turn taught me through my summer internship and mission trip back in 2002.
  3. Pizza.  I’m feeling very nostalgic for college today, probably because I’m leading a teen retreat this weekend.  Nonetheless, I am hungry for pizza, and I love getting to this carb loaded, only good for my soul but definitely not the body tomato sauce pie.
