The little things

"Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;" Ephesians 5:20

I was headed off to college before I knew that sheets came in sets. Until then, I had never seen a flat sheet. I grew up "economically disadvantaged." I was nineteen and had been working a full-time job for 6 months before I owned two pairs of dress shoes at the same time.

When we got married, like many newleyweds we struggled financially. I vividly remember when we had been married a few years, opening the refrigerator one morning and feeling like we had arrived because there was orange juice in there.

Since then, we've had our ups and downs, but I never drink a glass of orange juice, choose a pair of shoes out of my closet, or pull a flat sheet up over me at night that I don't remember how very blessed I am.
