Have you ever had an unexpected moment of perfect contentment?
A moment, however fleeting, when all was right with your world...
I experienced that today in a most unexpected place: a skating rink!
I was there with about 60 kids, aged 12 to 18, 2 preschoolers, and a dozen or so adults. I wasn't skating, but just sitting, watching the kids go by.
There went El,surrounded by her 3 buddies, flashing me a big smile.
Then came Em, being pushed by a friend.
And then the eldest, sailing by with her young gentleman.
It was as if the Lord spoke to me: 'You are so incredibly blessed . All your children are here, with their church family, and there is no where else that they'd rather be.'
The feeling was so powerful that I almost cried.
It was such an unlikely place for the Lord to whisper in my ear.
And considering the volume level of the music in that place, I'm amazed that I could hear Him
