The Good Life that God has Given Me
Arriving home just now and walking into an empty house, I found myself meditating with simple thanks that God has given me a good life to live, and I am thankful for this. He has given me a good life for the living.
I found myself walking to the train station today singing hymns quietly to myself with a sense of gratitude for the cool air on my skin and the silence occasionally punctured by screeching trains along the tracks.
I had a good family growing up.
I was given an experience of true love… not the romantic kind yet, but a deep family of loving Christians in San Luis Obispo. And I saw a revival in action in that place. Not many have experienced that.
I have now felt true pain and loneliness, and on the other side of it, life is the sweeter and my joy double-rebounded from knowing it.
