Gratitude 2/6

I celebrate the 7th anniversary of my ordination today. It should be a day of celebration, but I’m not feeling much like celebrating today. This morning I woke u[p feeling a bit like Elijah when he was whining to God. I have lots of whining that I would love to dump somewhere. So, these words of Jesus are speaking to me today, “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light (Mt. 11:28-30).”

Today I am personally thankful for: the grace of God that sustains me in all things; the mental health benefits of exercise; and the cleansing rain.
