The Knowledge of Our Abundance

Consider the light switch
How thoughtless we take into account the mere flick of a switch
Light illuminates the room
We rush around throwing our things about
After all we?ve paid our bill
Consider the popping open of our refrigerator doors, Twisting off a cap enjoying our favorite
Soda or juice
Maybe even a piece of fruit.
We stood in that grocery store line
Forever
Consider the movement of the thermometer
From 70 to 78 to warm the house
Don?t forget the blanket, warm?
Toasty yet? You have your light, your juice,
And all the warmth you can hold.
But what about others out in the cold.
Have you thought anymore about that woman today?
You know the one who could not pay her way.
I hear your husband say, it?s cold in here, but what about the others both far and near.
Those who insulate themselves with newspapers,
Under a cardboard box, no refrigerator door to pop open, No soda cap to twist off
The carefree motion of the switch of a light
Numerous blankets at your reach
Adjusting the warmth of your house
Without a second thought
Second thoughts become first
As we become grateful
In the knowledge of our abundance
Before you pass them by
Think of the comfort awaiting you
In that simple thought peace becomes still.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Thank you again, Lisa...this article is about having an attitude of gratitude. We need to 'hear' it...and you're so right that we need to think of those less fortunate, and to reach out. Love this article! Susan
