I just looked at my desk calendar at work, which is this really cheesy "Christian" desk calendar that I bought back in like 1997 when I used to shop at "Christian" book stores... I appreciate it's nice Bible verses and what not on a daily basis, though, even if it is ridiculously cheesy.
Like today.. the quote is from Max Lucado. Did you forget he exsisted? Me too.
But this is nice:
"Gratitude. More aware of what you have than what you don't."
Oh, I like it. I am so quick to be jealous of what others have, etc. I have to really guard against it. It comes so naturally to me, I've been like that since I was a kid. You'd think I was a middle child or something :) I really am so thankful for where I am, what I have and who I get to spend life with... even though sometimes I get distracted, or lose perspective.
What a perfect reminder for this week, going into ThanksG!
