Grateful for no Particular Reason

Grandson Cadence and daughter Elaine, Easter Sunday, 2009
Heart Filled with Joy
Despite a hectic schedule and the attending fatigue that inevitably trails in its wake, I awoke this morning full of peace and contentment.
I could provide a laundry list of the reasons I’m happy, or the things that have me feeling so good. But the fact  is that no particular reason or thing underlies my joyfulness.
God loves me. He’s given me another day on this beautiful and confusing, bright and broken planet.
After that, it’s all details.
3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God!

He made us, and we are His.
We are His people, the sheep of His pasture.
4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving;
go into His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him and praise His name.
5 For the Lord is good.
His unfailing love continues forever,
and His faithfulness continues to each generation.

Psalm 100:3-5 (NLT)
