Grateful: a List

Wednesday, November 26, 2014


I'm grateful

for warmth
long, frustrating conversations
clarity of thought
fresh air

and

hot baths
hot coffee
warm toast


for relationships that carry on through years, decades
through tangles and seasons and silence and shouting, if only in one's head
and love and joy and peace--all of the fruit of a spirit-breathed life.



I'm grateful

for unexplained things, like healing and life instead of death
and new life and weddings and the difficult joy in the shuffling and rearranging of thoughts and spaces and seats at the table.



I'm grateful for the Holy Spirit. For new life. For restoration and brokenness.

I'm grateful for women who stay up late talking about men and biochemistry.
