Morning Gratitude #3

Sometimes it’s hard to feel gratitude, to be grateful. Today, for instance, it’s 0325 and I’d rather be sleeping. Yet God woke me up, so here I am. And I’m thankful in spite of my own inclination to whine.

For waking up and drawing breath.

For my annoying dogs.

For having a job, albeit a really early one.

For time to read.

For my wife, who is like Jesus with skin on to me (Don’t read too much into that. I just mean she loves me at all times, even when I’m being a tool. But I can put my arms around her).

For food in my cupboards and books on my shelf.

For my family.

For this reminder next to my fireplace.

God has changed my life, and changed me. It's that simple. I will ever be grateful, and if I live to be...well, OLD, I will never tire of telling people about the work done in my life, and what can be done in theirs, should they trust God with their innermost everything...
