I am thankful tonight for the small spaces I am able to reserve to peacefully reflect and join together in conversation and faith sharing with others. Most weeks, I have not wanted to go to small group. Yet I continue to be blessed by our time together, and walk away refreshed and with a calm spirit.
On days like today, which are full of chaos and overlapping appointments, I could not be more thankful for the opportunity to have this built into my schedule. Further, I am thankful for the people who help to make that time- which in many ways is "another appointment" in my date book - worthwhile.
