Tonight I feel satisfied. Full of delight. Deeply fulfilled.
Just came home from an absolutely beautiful production of “Little Women” put on by a phenomenally talented cast of 11 people. It’s on nights like tonight when I just feel so content. My ears have taken in the sounds of perfectly sung notes. Talent that far exceeds the ability of my words to describe. My heart has felt the throb of emotion as cast members perfectly portrayed characters full of life and personality. My eyes have shed rivulets of tears. And a joy in knowing that all of these performers rehearsed and memorized oodles of lines all to the glory of God, thanking Him for the talents He gifted them with, and offering them up as a way to bring healing and joy for women rescued from sex trafficking. What a joyous night, to know that my dollars will help restore women’s souls and lives at a haven house of their own.
Thank you Lord for this fullness.
Thank you for theater.
Thank you for the talents you bestow upon your people.
Thank you for all the ways people honor you and bring you glory through their talents of choreography, singing, directing, piano playing, light installation, costume-making and so much more.
Thank you for my sweet girlfriend Shannon, who shared this evening with me.
A beautiful night.
And I also feel the sweet satisfaction of having just read the final pages of “The Weird Sisters” in time for tomorrow’s book club meeting. Oh that’s a good feeling.
A beautiful day, really.
Started off with a bacon & scrambled eggs breakfast, with all four of us sitting around the dining room table opening the day in prayer, holding hands together. And then heading off with Grandpa and Grammy to the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens for a glorious day in the sweet serenity of the beautiful outdoors. Sitting there on a wooden bench soaking up the sunshine feeling nothing but stillness about me, was pure joy.
I’m off to bed fully satisfied with today. Thank you Lord for all of these blessings. Thank you.
