And then my devotional concluded with, When you receive My abundant blessings with a grateful heart, I rejoice. My pleasure in giving and your pleasure in receiving flow together in joyous harmony.
How true! And of course the most abundant blessing was to experience the trip with the man who has walked every day of the past 25 years with me - Mark, my husband and love. Comfortable was the word that came to me as I sat in St. Lucia with him. How comfortable, at ease, pleasant and safe (but also fun, exciting and never dull) it is to be with him. That's the fruit of 25 years of hard work!
Lord God, Mark and I receive your abundant blessings with a grateful heart.
