Cup Overflowing

Continuing to count all that I am grateful for…

385. Leading the retreat, Cup Overflowing: Joy as a Lenten Practice, for an amazing and wonderful group of Massachusetts United Church of Christ pastors.


386. The beauty of Ipswich, MA, and the Notre Dame Spiritual Center where the retreat was held.



387. “who, for the joy set before Him, endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2


388. Resurrection joy and the tree with the leaves of healing for the nations…


389. A feathered friend’s home.


390. Watching ducks land. Hilarious.


391. Visiting with many good friends in Boston and being back on campus.


392. Signs of spring when I returned to Seattle.



393.. A wonderful surprise visit from a friend I haven’t seen in a long time.


390. A great birthday,  crowned High Queen Susan, and served a yummy dinner with an amazing dark chocolate cake. Thank you Kimberlee, Doug, Jack, Jane, and the twinfants!

    Thank you Megan :-) May your week be full of joy!

  • I’m here from Ann’s – and it’s Thursday – but there were a ton of Grateful linkies to read – and I love reading them. And it took me this long to get to yours.

    And when I read through the lists I like to think about it a little and pick a favorite – my favorite from yours was the last one 391. Chocolate smiles and dancing. (that is a memory shot – thinking you will look at that with her kids one day – and smile – and they’ll laugh – and she’ll say “MOM!!” – and you’ll be happy) {smile}

    I’m really glad I read you today.

    God Bless and keep you and all of yours
