Built a fire tonight. I love doing that. A crackling wood fire on a cold night it just nice.
And I am always impressed that I can make fire! It makes me feel like a strong, capable woman. Arrrgh! Look what I can do! Fire!
Watching a fire slowly burn down in also reminds me of the simple blessings God gives. The ones we overlook. I have a roof over my head, shelter on a cold night, a well-constructed fireplace, a stack of wood to burn, and matches.
I have food in the fridge, a dog to warn me of possible intruders in the driveway, and a warm cat in my lap. I have internet access, books to read, and friends who have covered my family with prayer this week.
I have a God who loves me, a Savior who died for me, and a Bible to read. I am blessed. I am grateful. It is well with my soul.
