this morning

I woke up this morning with a song in my heart...one we sang in E. Asia just a few weeks ago, and had sung fairly often when Caitlin was leading worship with us in Cassville...don't know if the Christian Community family knows it or not, but I was singing it none the less....

The Lord is gracious and compassionate
Slow to anger, rich in love
The Lord is gracious and compassionate
Slow to anger, rich in love

As far as the east is from the west
That's how far He has removed our transgressions from us
As far as the east is from the west
That's how far He has removed our transgressions from us

Praise the Lord, oh my soul, praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, oh my soul, praise the Lord!

There's a lot on my plate today, but it will be done in a prayerful way, and with a spirit of worship....
It was a long time ago, but I had heard in an interview with Rich Mullins once that he viewed "spiritual acts of worship" in the little things we do day to day as much as the huge mountain top events....so some of the things that mattered and showed spiritual discipline to him were the simple things like the folding of clothes, washing of dishes, etc. That's how today will be for me. Quiet. Peaceful. Worship.

in His grace...
