I'm Thankful For...The In Between Moments

A lot of this little blog chronicles all the things I get to go, see, and do.
And those things are wonderful. I often find myself anxiously awaiting the next adventure.

But, there is also so much adventure to be found in the in between. 


This girl is simple. 
She loves a day at the beach, but she also loves treats in the kitchen.
She loves 12pm every day when I show up to hang out with feed her. 




This pup has had some health issues lately. 
A few scary seizures that came out of nowhere.
Sweet Ashy was so concerned about Chloe.
It was precious to see her gentleness shine through as she cared for Chloe.


 And then there's these people.
Who love Christ in word and in deed.
Truly living out "a heart of love and a life of service". 
Joyfully. 
Even in something as simple as filling mugs with candy. 
And eggs, so many eggs.


The happiest note from a friend. 


Sunshiney Sundays on the lawn. 


Catching beauty in the place that I live.


And you know, just having fun for the sake of having fun.


Looking over all of this, I know God has given me much. 
Mostly, and most importantly, he has given me His Son.
All of these wonderful things pale in comparison to the redemption and grace I experience in Him every day.
I know that these things are temporal, and anxiously await the day of being with Him for eternity.
Where the adventures and joys will be far greater than I could even imagine.
I can't wait.

  1. They use that word temporal all the time at my Christian Science gig, however they use it in a bit of a different context than you do. :)

    Good on you for your gratefulness!
