Hebrews 13: 5 says “Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you’. We have a resident that is the picture of this verse, she can only move her head but she always has a smile on her face and everytime you ask her how she is she says ‘I am blessed.'”
Why is it so hard for us who can do what we want and go where we want to be happy and content? The answer is we are waiting for the next bad thing to happen. We are never looking at the good things God has blessed us with, we are focusing all our energy on the things that we don’t have.
Thats the lesson our wonderful resident has taught me, even though she can’t move her arms and legs she is thankful that she can still move her head and talk, she is looking at the good things in her life not what she doesn’t have. Let’s take a look at our lives and I’m sure we can find more blessings than curses.
God bless you all.
