What is a picture of a good day for you? What about a whole life well lived? Does it include things like 18 holes, a powder day, fly fishing, dinner with the family, a day without pain, meaningful work, feeling like you made a difference in someone's life?
These were some of the answers from friends I asked this week.
Jesus had his own idea of what makes for a life well lived. It included things like mourning and caring for those who are hurting, remaining humble and pure of heart, committing to the work of making peace, hungering for justice and righteousness. These are the things that make for a blessed life, Jesus says.
I introduced Jesus' beatitudes in a sermon two weeks ago and asked which of them touched your heart and what your soul was hungry for right now.
I will share your responses in worship this week and offer some guidance and next steps to help you discover the blessed life God intends for each one of us.

Feeling Fridaylicious!!!! Hanging out at the airport this morning. Never quite sure how to safely transport my hats, so I guess it’s going to be a hat kind of day. Does anyone have suggestions? What happened to traveling with hat boxes?
Sometimes ya just gotta get outdoors and enjoy God's creation. Jim knows when I need a good long drive to settle my spirit. These mountains are calming but if you know me, you know I'm a water person! We found a beautiful reservoir where there were no people. I sat by the water and just listened! It soothed my spirit. Next time I'm going in a bathing suit so I can do some open water swimming! I miss that part of triathlon the most! Haven't been in open water to swim since doing Nations Triathlon 3 years ago. That needs to change. I need to train for a race!
I can’t believe we’re actually married!!! I got sealed to my best friend for time & all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple on July 25th, 2019. It’s been a long road getting here, but I wouldn’t want it any different. Thank you for all that you do hun, I love you forever & always ! Thru thick & thin ya heeerrrrrrr 🤣✊🏽😘 #dreamchasersofamerica
I put the fly in fly fishing🎣😆
________________________________________________________What an experience! I’ve never been fishing before so this was an exciting first. I didn’t expect to catch anything but I managed to hook 4 fish! We released them of course☺️The river was so so cold that my feet got numb after a few hours and that’s when I got really hungry and sleepy🙈I was tempted to take a nap in the grass because it was so beautiful out there! How many of you have been fishing?🐟Tell me about your experience!
Check out our recent staycation at Park City’s 1889 elementary school building turned 5-Star hotel. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ It’s unlike any other luxury accommodations in Park City, or anywhere else for that matter. I’ve been lucky to stay in many of the world’s best hotels and this place is very special. At The Washington School House Hotel, every guest is considered a VIP and the staff takes providing a uniquely, great experience very seriously. GM, local Jared Gentile, told me they try to treat everyone like family👨👩👧👦 and want everyone to feel comfortable enough to ask for anything. “We have a never-say-no mentality.” It’s no wonder that once people discover this 12-room hotel they come back again and again… and again. ✏️The original limestone school building was constructed in 1889 and contained 3 large rooms and 16 foot ceilings. Originally it cost about $13,000 to build and the interior furnishings and fixtures were $698. It was one of three school buildings which were simply named by numbers 1, 2 and 3 but later named Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln. The Washington survived the 1898 fire 🔥that destroyed much of the town and it’s the only one of the three that still remains.
Thoughtful welcome amenities, afternoon charcuterie boards & desserts and UNLIMITED drinks are just part of the experience. Breakfast is also complimentary each morning and guests choose from a large menu prepared by executive chef, Ryan Frye. @rhinofrye (a whole separate post on that to come). To say I would recommend a stay here is a dramatic understatement. Then you too will be back again... and again. @washingtonschoolhouse@pilot_hotels
