"Do you see how thankful we must be?"

"Do you see what we've got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God."Hebrews 12:28 "The Message"

I went to art tonight and as usual, just lost myself in the class. That class is such a blessing! David, my teacher, just returned from an art seminar/workshop in Atlanta. The same lady who taught that class will be here in April and I am going for a 3 day workshop. Can't wait! What fun!... He said, they had a sit and talk session and the first few told about their paintings and what they were selling, etc...and when it came to him, he told about his classes and particularly about our Thursday night class,( which to me is like a Care Group ). We all have a love for each other, and pray for each other, and share our heartaches and sorrows, our good times and our not so good. And most of all, we paint, sharing help and cheer when one of us does a really good painting or sells something. There is no jealousy, or bitterness if one of us does better than the others, but or happiness for that person.

David shared with this group in Atlanta about us and how this group helps me feel better on a bad night (from chemo) and how I might drag there, feeling tough and in a few minutes, I am happy and ready to paint. That is what this group does for me. Anyway, when he told this, that group all opened up and shared things they were not expecting to do...just because David shared first about us. Isn't love of God wonderful and how He connected us with fellow christians no matter where we go. Wow, I am so thankful!
