happiness list, 5.6.15

 1. I live in a jungle.

Over the last few weeks, the front porch has been the place to be.  Vines and bushes and trees are bursting out all over with life and bright, happy, new, green leaves.  (and lots and lots and lots of pollen…)

2. I got a new book.

One of my favorite, favorite writers, Lauren Winner, just published a new book, and though I’ve been carrying it around since last week, I haven’t gotten a chance to gobble it up.  (Hopes pinned on this weekend…)

3. God used my sermon.

More and more, I’m falling in love with sermon-writing.  It’s hard to get into a groove, especially when I preach once every two months or so, but last Sunday’s effort was a joy to contemplate, write, and deliver, it spoke to my heart, and it spoke to the hearts of many who heard and read it.  I’m so grateful to get to be a vessel sometimes!

  1. So sorry I missed your sermon last Sunday. However, I think I can listen on-line. I wish Trinity would go back to the printed word. I used to read sermons on-line & then copy them for shut-ins & others who might have missed church. Please pass this on to the powers that be. Thanks, Emily!
