As I look towards myself and my surroundings today I have so much to be thankful for.
I have a home, running water, soap, clothes, heat and air-conditioning. I have a vehicle, a bed to sleep in and a roof to sleep under. I have shoes on my feet and food in my refrigerator.
My bills are paid and still some left over to help those less fortunate, than myself.
I am in fairly good health and still able to get up and do what I need to do, though slow sometimes it may be.
All the part’s of my body function, though some parts have aches and pains.
All my children and grandchildren are healthy, and we have four generations alive in my family. (Actually most of my life I have had five generations still alive at one time.)
I live in a country where there are educated men and women who can take care of my health needs, when the need arises.
When was the last time I just took a good look at things and said, “Thank You God?”
Lord, have pity on me?
Today I will thank the Lord for all I have and do it daily. I will also thank Him for all I do not have such as:
Leprosy, a street for a bed, a garbage can for my food, infected water to drink, a disabled body, eyes that are blind, ears that are deaf, and a heart which feels nothing for anyone.
Jesus said in reply, “Ten were cleansed, were they not? Where are the other nine? Has none but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God?”
Love and God Bless, SR
