Things that are GOOD in my life

(The RevGals offered this today) We're in the midst of 'it' and I'm hoping that it is not just me who is starting to get a bit overwhelmed. So for today I am asking for five quick picks of things that are good in your life. And as a bonus, 1 pick for a thing you could do without. If you want to describe them? Great. If not? That's fine too. Have a great weekend!

5 Quick Picks of Things That Are Good in My Life
  1. Books—and the bookshelves in my new home that hold them—and the bookshelves in my office that hold them—and the library that I can borrow from while it holds them!
  2. Colleagues—today I’m so thankful to have amazing people with whom I can theologize, disagree, sing, bounce ideas off, play, argue and love—all in one building! Names in particular: Barb, Hal, Sarah, Mark, David—ya’ll rock.
  3. Equinox Brewery—okay, it may seem shallow, but this is where Jamie and I hold our weekly date-night-catch-up-on-what-happened-while-you-served-your-church-in-Laramie-and-I-ministered-in-Fort-Collins—and they simply have GREAT beer.
  4. Walking—I’ve been saying “hello” to each crocus I see, slowing down and noticing what I haven’t “seen” before, feeling my body respond to the sun, wind, shade, sidewalk, grass…
  5.  Coffee—again, not so shallow as it seems, because this is what I crave as I sit and write each morning—a routine, a mug with a message and my pen—ritual and spiritual nourishment… along with caffeine J.

Bonus: The wind!
