"... they will stay fresh and green ..."
Who, you ask?
Psalm 92 answers: those are planted in the house of the Lord and who proclaim He is their Rock!
Who wouldn't want to be fresh? And not in the racy way... ahem. In the "new, not faded or impaired, bright, healthy, attractive, full of energy, pleasant, cool, and pure" way... thank you Mr. Webster.
Seriously, who wouldn't want that description of their life?! And since I've started defining things, let me explain the fresh title of this blog. It comes from a book I'm reading and thoroughly enjoying and highly recommend: One Thousand Gifts, by Ann Voskamp. She explains her journey to discover fullness in life. "Eucharisteo" is the Greek word for thanksgiving. However, "charis" means grace, and "chara" means joy. So grace and joy are wrapped up in giving thanks.
It really comes down to our choices in how we look at life and respond to it.
So in my desire to continue to live a life which is full and fresh, I hope this blog will be an outlet for offering gratitude as I filter life through eyes gazing towards my Rock. And I trust a source of joy to those who happen upon it.
