My Cup Runneth Over!
There are many out there who have a 'plate full'; in other words, they have more than their share of the bad things of life. Those families of South East Asia who were hit by the tsunami surely have their plates full - more than enough to last them for a life time. So many have lost loved ones, whole families, and neighbors, not to mention all their life's belongings. In only a few minutes, their lives were forever changed. Lives were swept to sea, homes and businesses vanished, and life would never be the same. Even the landscapes completely changed, with one whole island being swept away.
How would those of us not affected have handled such a tragedy? Would we be able to pick up the pieces and go on living life from day to day? Having only the clothes on our backs, would we come back fighting?
We have so much to be thankful for every day we live. Unlike those that lost their lives in the tsunami floods, we still have our life. We still have the ability to rise each morning, knowing we have a change of clothes, food on the table, and a job to go to. Most of us have a family with which to share the day. Life might not be the best in the world for us, but, at least, we are alive! I don't know about you, but my 'cup runneth over' with blessings from above. Each day I arise and am able to speak, I thank God that He has spared me another day to worship Him, and has given me health for which to praise Him. But by the grace of God, we could have been one of the victims of the tsunami.
