Beauty in small packages....

What are you thankful for today? Are you thankful for that nice car sitting out in the parking lot, your nice house with the nice HD tv, the touch screen remote, the computer that has all the bells and whistles?
What means the most to you in your life? Your neighbor that lives next door that comes over to visit you from time to time, your local church that provides a place for you to go worship the Lord on Sundays, your hair stylist who makes your hair all pretty, your nail technician who does your nails and makes them look all nice for that big event? What are you thankful for?
I was sitting there asking myself that question this morning. I started to realize that we don't have to have all the finer things in life to be happy! God wants us to be happy with the life we have now! He doesn't say it's a bad thing to set goals, but he does say if those goals interfere with worshipping him, then it's a bad thing.
I am thankful when I woke up this morning and there was still another breath in me! When I logged into facebook and realized that my family and friends are doing ok and nothing is seriously wrong! When I saw my son's face and realized how much I love him each and every day and that I am blessed that he is healthy! My husband who comforts me at times when I don't think I can go on! I am thankful for all things in life! Even when I can't afford the big things, I can't take those with me when this life is over, what I can take with me, is my Faith in my Lord and savior Jesus Christ! He is the one and only! Without him I wouldn't have any of those other things to be thankful for! Amen!
