I Don't Deserve This....

Have you ever had one of those days when everything seems to be perfect? Today was one of those days for me.

Church was great. The band was excellent. Spontaneous worship was taking place throughout the congregation. God’s presence was moving. And people thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Attendance was good. Many visiting families

After church Renae and I went to a horticulture plant-sale at PJC Milton Campus. The weather was simply perfect – cool, clear, and sunny. Bumped into a couple of families from our church who were out doing the same thing. Very nice seeing them and having a brief visit in the outdoors.

After Renae and I got home we planted flowers and vegetables, and enjoyed the outdoors some more. She and I spent the day together.

Now I’m sitting in my easy chair watching a Clint Eastwood western, “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.”

Does it get any better than this?

I meet a lot of people who are unhappy with they way things are going in their life. They dislike their job. Their ministry is unfulfilling. Life stinks. I hate that for them. My own life is far from perfect, but things are good for me. I love God, my wife, my family, the church I pastor and all the people in it. I love my work! On top of that Jesus Christ radically changed my life and called me into the ministry.

I don’t deserve any of this…. that's why I am very thankful.
