Living in Paradise


'Life is a paradise for those who love many things with a passion." Leo Buscaglia

Since I love many things with a passion I guess I am a paradise dweller. Things I love right now with a passion...

1) Decorating our house for Christmas. The fun begins today!
2) Shopping! (Also going to do some of that today for Christmas. Can you believe Pastor T waited in line at a store since 3 a.m. this morning? He better never accuse me of being a shopaholic is all I gotta say!)
4) Spending time with my sweetheart...another thing I'm going to do today. We are going Christmas shopping and to lunch, and then we will decorate the house together, at least a little bit. How did I get so blessed to have a man who does all this with me? (Oh yeah, I forgot, I trained him.) :-)
5) Writing.
6) Sitting on my swing on my brick paver patio in the back yard. At sunset is the best, when I'm not on my bike I like to be on the swing.
7) Finding something new in God's Word - seeing it a different way - stopping to catch something I didn't before when I read it.
8) Getting Christmas cards in the mail. We got our first one yesterday, from our district superintendent.
9) An opportunity to sleep in. I slept til noon today. For this Jesus, I give You thanks.
10) God forgave me for all that I ate yesterday. Now I'm back on track today and trying to not be too grouchy about it. After all, I'm living in paradise. What is there to be grouchy about, really?
