Today I am more thankful to God than I’ve been for some time. There has been so much on the news about the world food crisis, I even wrote a post about how the food crisis has been affecting Ethiopia. Coupled with the China quakes and the Myanmar disaster, I can’t help but reflect on my own situation.
It is so easy to be consumed with discontentment. Iris who hosts the Thankful Thursday meme chose ‘Time‘ as the theme for this week. Time is something I always seem to be short of (and imagine I’m not even married yet!). So how does time relate to world hunger and earthquakes?
Instead of complaining about what I can or can’t do… I am grateful that even though the price of food items in the stores have increased, I can still afford to eat whenever I choose to!
I’m also thankful that with the price of petrol (that’s gas to some of you), I can still afford to run my car whenever.
I’m also thankful that I have an avenue to express my thanks. You can too – if you go over to Iris’ at Sting My Heart!
