Fullness of Joy

There are days when life is so...full. 

The sun shines. A cool breeze blows and early morning mist rises from the ground, promising warmth and kisses from the sun later on. 

Sometimes the days blend into seasons, and you wonder at the goodness of it all, the blessings poured out "just because."  You realize grace all over again, the stunning generosity of it, the way it rushes out and over, not caring who it touches, just intent on lavishing. 

For all who are wondering how this season of transition is going for me, there's so much I could say, but overwhelmingly the feeling that I have is how I feel so blessed by the Lord in this season.  His grace pours over us whether life is going great or we're walking through pain and heartache - it's always lavishing and working beauty and goodness and redemption.  But He is richly blessing me in so many ways - amazing community at Trinity, and awesome staff team at Loyola, incredible professors and the opportunity to learn deeply about Him....

I'll share more specifics soon, but wanted to you know that I'm rejoicing in His goodness and provision. 

"...You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore."
~Psalm 16:11
