I am Blessed.

it's a fact.  God has given life and breath and salvation.  I am blessed.  And at 4:30am, when the music from the clubs is blasting in my windows, and babies are crying, and I am starting my day against my will.  This is the song ringing in my ears from the DJs booth- "I am Blessed by Mr Vegas" (*warning, not a Christian video, but no cursing).

How like God to turn a frustrating moment, into a teachable moment.  The particular version blaring this morning had a bridge that said "I love my life. I love my life. I love my life"  And it's true.  I love my life.  We're living the dream.  We're finally here.  And so here is the gift list this week:
