Pungent Gratitude

I've not done this is a long time, and I'm past due. no excuses...no good ones anyway.

  1. An absolutely gorgeous spring day...even when I'm stuck inside.
  2. Meeting youth a Starbucks and connecting with them a little further.
  3. A youth lesson sprung on me at the last minuet, that I didn't see until an hour before presenting it, that went absolutely swimmingly.
  4. Meetings with a youth pastor who's become a friend.
  5. Practice time.
  6. A new computer that's more than I could have asked for, and a way to pay for it.
  7. Confidence that small things like breaking a string, won't effect my worship leading.
  8. Finally finding a song that all the youth know, like, and are willing to sing.
  9. Seeing Audio Adrenaline in concert one last time.
  10. Being completely blessed and being able to worship with all my heart.
  11. Small conversations with small implications
  12. Feeling that in the grand scheme of this, some of all of this really matters.
  13. Friends who support me, and correct me even though their not with me.
  14. The chance to step up and be the man God wants me to be, and succeeding
  15. Experiencing God's nature, though His creation, even if it's just on t.v.
  16. Kid's engaging in a lesson and making it fun.
  17. Having a job, even if I didn't look forward to going to it this morning.
  18. Skiing with my dad...skiing in general actually.
  19. Sudden strength, quite compassion, and knowing that none of it was me.
  20. The ability to love, even when it's not returned.
  21. Sitting outside and watching nature do it's thing.
  22. Being able to laugh...even when it's at myself.

The list could go on, and most of this is just from the last couple of days. Why pungent? Mostly because I like the word. There's so much in my life that I'm grateful for that in a way it permeates through all aspects of my life. I just don't always take the time to write it, and normally when I do it's somewhere else. This time I just needed to write it out here.
