enjoy things and life ... always with Gratitude & Thankful Heart

..Dr. John White writes that several years earlier
God had made it possible for him to acquire a lovely home
with many luxuries. His feelings about the house fluctuated dramatically.

When he would begin to compare it with those of his friends,
he would feel proud because he had such a fine house and his joy would evaporate.
His home would actually become a burden.
All he could see were the many hedges and trees to care for and the endless odd jobs to do.

When he reminded himself that it was a gracious gift from God,

White said, “While vanity clouds my eyes and burdens my heart, gratitude clears my vision and lightens my load.”

Psalms 95:2
Let us come before Him with Thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song.
