I often awaken with a simple thought rattling around in my little brain and as I hobble into the kitchen to make coffee I mull over what I will write about here. I know…you probably thought that I gave a great deal of planning and forethought to my posts, but such is usually not the case. I go with the flow of the morning brain waves. At 4am that is all I can manage!
This morning’s thought was a question- “Why me? Why do I deserve to be so blessed?” Of course the first answer that followed was that I don’t deserve even half of my blessings, but God is generous. However, my next thought was that I am blessed in order to share those blessings with others. I’m not sure I always succeed, but that should always be my goal. I believe there are two reasons why God created people- to serve Him, and to serve each other. If He just wanted beauty and entertainment he would have stopped with the creation of animals!
So this morning I am feeling grateful for my family, friends, health, job, and a dozen other things. I’m feeling blessed by a marriage that has lasted for forty years! I’m feeling privileged to do the things I do. I know that in the future I may have days when I will not feel so grateful and I may have to return here and read this. That is how life works. But I think if most of us look at the “big picture” of our lives we can all ask “Why me? Why do I deserve to be so blessed?”
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
