Life is good.

Everyday people like to ask me, "How are you?"....my response is always, "good...real good."  Why wouldn't my life be feeling good I ask myself?  I have a great job, a loving family, so many dear friends, great health, food on the table, clothes on my back, and a solid teaching home church.  Frankly, I am better than I deserve.  The Lord continues to bless me daily.  For example, I was at a public park recently to meet a few neighbors in the area and the local police department.  Then, all of a sudden I see a familiar face at the park.  A television icon who was famous in the US and Latin America.  I was so surprised to see him.  I was a fan of CHiPs....remember that tv show?  The hit television program I grew up watching in the 80s.  I never imagined I would see Erik Estrada in person.  He was so pleasant.  There was a crowd of people surrounding him so I thought I don't stand a chance meeting him.  I was wrong!  He was so cool to allow me to stand next to him.  He said he was a fan of my blog.  OK, not true...but that would have made the experience just as cool.  No really, he was really easygoing.  He allowed everyone around him to take a photo.  He was so generous with his time. With such patience, he smiled to so many cameras...all for his fans.

How was I blessed?  It was not meeting this guy, who was the star of a former television show.  Actually my mom made me a fan.  Anyhow, it was something far more valuable to me.  You see I did not have dinner that evening so I could be at this public park for an event.  I had a full day and skipped my dinner hour.  Wouldn't you know it?  The local police department was hosting a dinner that same evening and they were giving away "free food."  That pleased my stomach.  I got to eat dinner at the right time and meet a real life icon, who was part of my culture.  A perfect example of the Lord's generosity in my life.

 
But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth - Psalm 86:15
