Random bits of joy

I'm thankful for a church I feel at home in and that it is welcoming and loving so I don't have to be worried or embarrassed when I bring my friends. I'm thankful for little kids in patent leather Mary Jane's waving palm fronds high in the air and for Bonnie at the prayer rail remembering to bring Kleenex. I'm thankful for Dustin and Carol and our meaningful time together...that we take time to stop and listen and just be together. And I'm thankful for Snoopy and his happy dance...I'd like to think if my spirit could dance, that's exactly what it would look like, feet flying, ears flopping, mouth curled into a sublime grin.


  1. It is such a gift to find a church home like you have.
    And seriously, there is no better expression of joy than Snoopy's happy dance :D

  2. I'm thankful too, and so treasure our times together. And thank you for this wonderful idea, and for living it, a sparkling, shimmering Lent!
