Simple things Sunday: Beyond what I deserve
While walking along the beach with Bam the other day, the song Lucky Man by Montgomery Gentry was stuck in my head. It is one of my very favorite songs, along with this one. It’s very fitting, I think.
As I was singing it, I thought, no wait, God’s given me a more than fair hand. I really don’t know what I did to deserve this, but I am thankful for it every single day.
Be thankful for what you have. Stop focusing on things you want or think you need.
If you money can buy it, it’s probably not worth treasuring.
You don’t take it with you when you go anyway, so be thankful for your health, family, time here and every little thing you can’t buy.
I encourage you to slow down, have extra cup of coffee or tea with your family, go for a walk and enjoy your surroundings, snuggle on the couch by the fire, but whatever you do, don’t fart on your significant other. They usually don’t like that.
What are you going to do to make today count?
