Today, I’m thankful for games. Chess, Sorry, Uno, Catan, Splendor, Ticket to Ride, and on the list goes. These are all games I get to play with my family. I have one daughter who loves to play games with me. These are great opportunities for me to practice presence. It is tough, because I often am focused on winning. But when I focus on presence, it is more fun and it builds the relationships.
My goal today is to keep playing games with my family and friends who will. But more importantly, to focus on presence and the relationships. That is the important part.
Holy God, thank You for the opportunities I have to connect with family, friends, brethren. Help me use those to the best of my ability and for your glory. Help me focus on the relationships, not on winning, not on receiving, not on taking, but on giving and connecting. I am all Yours today; do with me as You will.
