Have you ever met anyone who hasn't suffered some sort of loss along the journey of life? Of course you have - everywhere! When this comes our way, what do we do about it? How do we react? How do we handle the disapointing loss. Obviously, some losses are large and some are small. Like breaking a family antique vase compared to loosing a spouse or loved one.
Tomorrow is my 42nd anniversary. Last Sunday I suddenly realized the diamond was missing from my wedding ring - plain old gone - history - sharp prongs sticking up empty - nowhere to be found! Then I couldn't get the band off so I had to have it cut off. As I drove home my husband and I discussed all the losses we DON'T have! We don't have cancer. We don't have to sleep outside tonight. We aren't cold or hungry. No one has died. This list went on a long time.
I decided to focus on all the good things I have - I am blessed beyond measure! There is so much to be thankful for! Iknow that I am truly blest!
Matthew 6:19 - 20a Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroys and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven....
