Here we are in this beautiful Spring season of 2020. The birds are chirping, the sun shines longer, and the flowers are blooming. Yet one day while praying in my closet I looked up at my recent additions and sighed. I saw the summer jumpsuits, floral spring tops, and light green shorts. I had plans to wear them to concerts, weddings, and fairs. But with the coronavirus pandemic impacting our world, the clothes and my plans didn’t matter as much.
I was reminded of how fragile we are and how temporary everything on earth really is. I started praising God that my hope and joy was anchored in more than earthly things that can perish.
This is highlighted from my very first blog “100 Things To Be Grateful For”. In times like these it’s good to revisit the many things to be grateful for. I looked at my list today and found mostly everything still applies. Some things will change due to circumstances, but the things of God are eternal. I encourage you too to reflect on what really matters and write things to be grateful for. Always keep some intangible things in mind that can’t be taken away. Like joy, peace, faith, and a song in your heart.
