Waking up to blessings

This is starting as one of those thoroughly enjoyable days off. Nearly everything is set for Sunday, nothing scheduled between now and then, having leisurely coffee at Irwin's, living in the most beautiful city on the planet, my TiVo is stocked, a few DVDs in the player, some books to curl up with by the fire, and so very much more. And those are just the creature comforts. My Abba loves me and I know it. That's something I can rest in.

Had Annette, Heather, and Nate over for dinner last night. Love my fellowship with them. It's intentional, purposeful. We talk and laugh, but we also pray and preach the gospel into one another's lives. That's the kind of friendship I need and am learning to ask for—the kind that reminds me who I am by reminding me of who He is. I know that takes time, and it's not that I intend to be closed to other relationships, but I definitely need some friendships that are more than just mutual entertainment. I can't live on the latter. So I'm blessed indeed, and I'm beginning to have deeper appreciation for that rather than taking it for granted and treating those blessings with contempt.

Spurgeon is challenging me this morning in such a good way.
