My daily gratitude for:
- The church that welcomes Elana and I as preachers and proclaimers of the Word. It is a privilege that is unbelievably humbling to me because of the sacred role of interpreting Scripture and making a claim about what I know about God, and yet the whole time knowing that I have only one understanding of faith in God. Thanks to Southwest Central for supporting us in that.
- Ryan’s love of throwing discs (from disc golf) with me in the front or back yard. What a great daddy son activity!
- Sleep. I have never been so exhausted and tired than the stretch of weeks I have been on, and I’m not quite sure why sleep has been hard. But I am so grateful for the deep sleeps when they come.
- Family camping trips- my Cali family went on one big trip this past weekend and while I wasn’t there I think they are fun and give us the stories that make us laugh and smile.
