We are blessed, yes you and I are blessed

I'm sorry been so busy with completing class work or completing my Master's in Philosophy and spending time with the kids. Life has been up and down but yet since Train Town with the kids Ive just been happy. I no longer sit in a corner and cry. I no longer believe that good things don't happen for guys like me. Cause my kids bring me joy, I realize that I'm blessed to live in a home that is over 3,130 feet I drive a 2006 Land Rover, I have food in my house, close on my back my wife and kids are in healthy. I can go in my back yard and watch my grass grow my kids play and do my class work from my laptop. I had some bad things that happen to me but yet God has blessed me with some good things. To often do we focus more on the bad things that have happen to us in life and forget the good things.

Lord God it is to you that I give thanks for me and my brothers and sisters. Many of us have work up this day and not given you thanks because we didn't get the boyfriend or girlfriend we wanted. Cause our spouse isn't do things the way we want. Because our kids are acting out. Because our boss is being a major pain in the rear. I say this because I myself have felt some of these things myself. One day I was complaining about what I didn't have and how cruel life was. I watched my little kids play and realize that I might not have what I wanted. Yet God had certain given me what I needed, my beautiful children who showed me that the things we sit and worry about. Are only important to because we think that we must have these things. Watch a child and see if they care if you live in the right house or if they care if they go to right school. They care about having parents who love them. Who hug them, who spend time with them doing fun things. You might say fun things cost money. I say no, I have a park right on the other side of my house, that I can go sit watch plays being performed daily or nightly my kids can go play and laugh and have a good time. Their are hiking trails that my kids and I can go and watch the animals and view the bay. Knowing that your kids are safe, knowing that were allowed to wake up to see this day, means you were blessed. Let us give thanks to the Lord for all that we have, not all that we want. For everything we want is not always good for us.

Thank you Lord for the air we breathe, thank you for he close on our backs, thank you for waking us up this morning. Thank you that even when I get so caught up in what I want that you still love me, thank you for not letting go or abandoning me. Thank you for being God and God all by himself. Thank you for not measuring me by what I don't have or do have. For all we have is yours anyway. I praise you for my blessings, I praise you for my children, I praise you for my brothers and sisters in Christ. I praise you Lord because you are so good to us. So many places i could have woke in. I was allowed to get out bed, many people can not do that. I'm in the right frame of mind. I have my hands and feet and so much more. Thank you Lord for all that you do for us daily. I pray that we would time and realize that we are blessed, for these things that we think are little are not. Ask a child in Africa if having clean water to drink is not a big thing. We have bottled water and flavored water to drink. As a homeless man if having a warm safe place to sleep is not a good thing. Most of us went to bed and woke up and no one was kiding or robing us or woke up cold and hungry. So much do we have to be thank ful for. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God who is worthy to be praised
