A little taste of heaven

It sounds like the tag-line for a chocolate mousse, but I am actually thinking of the weekend away my church just had. Of course, it wasn’t perfect: it rained, I got about 3 hours sleep, we drove the long way home, I got bitten (by a beetle not a child!), I’m still exhausted and I forgot to blog on Monday.

And yet…

I spent time with God’s people praising him, giving thanks for all he’s done, looking forward to new adventures with him in the future. I depended on him, with my friends, and family, and I spoke to him. I worshipped him in song and with what I did, surrounded by others doing the same.

So I’ll blog the kids work soon, I’ve got serious holiday club planning to do, and I’m back at work already but please pray with me that I don’t forget the blessings and lessons of this weekend in the busy-ness and ordinary-ness of everyday life.
