Good Things

by regressada

…because my restless soul is forgetting how blessed I really am:

(from Psalm 84)

good things overflowing:
blessed are those whose strength is in you…”

~ an adventure
“…whose hearts are set on pilgrimage

~ a battle
“…as they pass through the valley of weeping”

~ a mission
“…they make it a place of springs

~a safe passage
“…they go from strength to strength

~ a hope
“till each appears before God in Zion.”

~ health and opportunities spilling over
~ Caleb sleeping next to me on the couch
~ maps full of possiblilities
~ ice cream sundaes for dessert
~ working
~ days off
~ brothers who call
~ Where the Wild Things Are made into a movie
~ valleys
~ unexpected woods with trails for running 
~ Grecian fisherman’s caps
~ WWII Ike jackets
~more promises: “He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion…”
~(God is going to use me)
~ praying before meals
~ classes starting in a matter of days
~ getting to run with my team again
~ waiting
~ praying for compassion
~ finding my bucket lists all over the place
~ too many books
~ good words. Psalm 103:

 He satisfies your desires with good things
   so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s…
