I’ve got no complaints today. This is a simple post. Based on simple truths. Based on simple gratitudes. There’s no grandstand here. There’s no hidden joke, no hidden agenda. Yet it is full. Complete. And to me, everything I need. Some things matter. Without them, nothing seems to matter.
The good Lord saw fit to wake me up. Give me energy to ride my bike. Go to work. Which means I have a job. Put in a good and busy day at work. He guided me safely home to put in another work out. Then I went outside and spent the rest of the afternoon doing whatever I wanted. Which means I have a home. I ate when I was hungry. I sat in a comfortable chair when I was weary. I have needs and wants met.
I can speak to my children and tell them I love them. And tell them good night. I can love on my great babies and take comfort from their littleness.
I’ve got a friend by my side. He lives to make my life better.
I can reach out to family. To friends. In time of need. Time of loneliness. Any time I want to.
And I have faith.
Now I prepare to lie down to sleep.
I hope the Lord wakes me up again tomorrow. I like it here. I simply and gratefully love it here.
