Luke 24:13-32
This is Jesus heartburn(I have to credit Dallas Willard for this term!)...31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. 32 They asked each other, "Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?"

holy experience

It's November! And it's 90 degrees outside and it doesn't feel like Thanksgiving is just around the corner. But I am ready for some thankfulness and I am going to attempt:) to make a list of 1000 things i am thankful for by Thanksgiving (or Christmas).
Thanks to my sister Anna for putting this on her blog to challenge me!
