Today has been a rather stinky day, but keeping this blog is a discipline, so I spent some time seeking something to be thankful for.
Before I left the house for my class tonight, I emailed a friend, told them I was having a stinky day, and asked for prayers. On checking my email during break, I saw that they had written back promising prayers. That felt good – that someone a thousand miles away, whom I have never met face-to-face, cares about me and is thinking about me.
It reminds me that I need to be more intentional about caring for the people who aren’t a thousand miles away, the people I live and work with. Thanks be to God!
