I love my church family like crazy. I'm just sitting in the back looking at @chandra_laine 's paintings and my fam is all in front of me.
When I was a kid, there were a few occasions where I felt lucky, Christmas was my favourite. It was straight up feeling spoiled, as a kid and it was the best. As an adult that feeling seemed hard to find and sad to lose. But Cannon conference has become an occasion for me where I wake up and feel spoiled and lucky and my heart races. Being with this family, the church and having an indescribable feeling of being given heaps of the love God, actually feels better than all the gifts I could have been given or purchased for myself haha. That word "lucky" has been changed to "blessed" as I realize it is God intentionally giving this to me. It's a better definition, not a spiritual cliche. Because I realize more through blessing that I am loved, not just lucky and wether or not I deserve it God will give it to me.
I really didn't know if this sort of feeling, (knowing God) could ever be as real or as good as gifts and riches when I was a child. It's better.
And I want so much to give it to everyone.
