So this month I have been participating in a “gratitude project” flickr group, where we post pictures (we have taken) of the things for which we are thankful.
There was a facebook status circulating that read, “If the only things you had when you woke up were the things you thanked God for the night before, would you have anything?”
I copied that . . . and it really stuck in my head. I started thanking God for all kinds of things I normally take for granted.
One of those things was my washer and dryer. I am so blessed to have these wonderful appliances that I don’t have to schlep (sp?) out to the laundry mat, or borrow a friend’s machines. Or? Wash by hand. . . .whatever that is?
I also share these wonderful laundry machines with anyone who comes to my house. ie: college kids, overnight guests, or the occasional swimmer in the summer.
I am thankful for a lot of things and this is only one, or I guess technically TWO. How many times are some of the things we take for granted not only the ones we forget to thank God for, but the ones with which we are most selfish?
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good.
His love endures forever.
