I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. Philippians 4:11
Recently I had the privilege of sleeping overnight in Chicago O'Hare Airport at the USO in a recliner. I was grateful for a place to go for free and try to rest. It took me a while to settle in and get comfortable. In this "quiet room" as it was called, several active duty service members snoozed away with no problem. In the morning I talked to a veteran who had served four combat tours and the luxury of a recliner was marvelous compared to sleeping conditions in war zones.
After hearing his story it made me feel bad for ever wishing for the comforts of a cushy mattress in a luxury hotel. It was time for a thanksgiving checkup. In your own life maybe a good assignment would be writing down one thing daily you are thankful for. Soon you will have an attitude of gratitude.
PRAYER: I am thankful first of all for being alive . Thank you for the good things and bad in life as through everything I learn and grow. In Jesus' name. Amen.
