What are the riches right before your eyes?
Lynn, our hostess for Thankful Thursday, asks this question at the end of her post entitled – Entitlements or Riches. She shares some good advice about dealing with the “I deserve this” mentality.
The greatest riches before my eyes are the many members of my family. I have written about several of them on this blog, so some of you know how special they are to me.
God blesses me with my family and teaches me lessons through my family...
Unconditional love...and total aggravation
Long suffering patience...and immediate gratification
Helpfulness and compassion...and hindrances and bitterness
Moments of sheer joy...and times of deep despair
Times of praising the Lord for the treasure of family...
and times on my knees crying out for help
I am so thankful...for ALL of it!
My family is my greatest treasure on earth...no one has the same one as I have...but then everyone has the same one as I have...whether the members are related by blood, marriage, or not...
The ones we love,
that love us,
give us glimpses of the
One that is love....
