I have had the flu and a horrible sinus infection for the last 5 days. Can’t go to work and be the provider that I should be and I’m stuck in my house. Its hard for me to be a home body as I love the outdoors. To long at home makes me stir crazy. Cannot go to church because I will not get others sick. These all sound like bad things and the way most people speak now a days. There is always going to be bad things that happen to us in this life but we tend to forget to be thankful for them. I am thankful for my understanding wife who took care of me while I was sick. And also my little daughter that had a smiling face every morning that I woke up. Animals that cuddled with me when I took my naps and kept me warm. Along with some of honey dews that I was able to accomplish. I received phone calls from newer friends from church who wished me healing and prayed for me. They called me early in the morning to get me through the day. Praise God for all the little things that we tend to miss. If we spend all our time griping then we forget to be thankful. Psalms 100:4 Enter his gates with Thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise His name. Please join me in prayer. Dear heavenly father thank you for yet another beautiful day. Thank you for giving us the strength to go out and do the things you have set out for us to do. Lord help us to keep focus on the good today instead of all the bad. Help us to be more positive people. In Jesus precious name amen.
