Are you grateful?

Two years ago my grandson was a typical seventeen year old, his loves were and are playing the drums, going to WWE matches with his sister and her husband, and anything electronic. He was sitting at the table a few days before Christmas and I decided to tease him about what I had gotten him for his gift, so I said, “Gabe I shouldn’t tell you this but I have bought you a bowtie for Christmas to go with your red shirt, I know you were expecting something else but I wanted you to look snazzy!”  He looked up and me and said, “Oh Mammy, that’s wonderful! I have always wanted one, the problem is I won’t know how to tie it, you’ll have to help me!” I looked at him and realized he was being serious.

I hope that when God offers an answer to my prayers that I don’t particularly understand or like, I will react sincerely react, with genuine happiness and say, “Thanks God, I know you know what is best for me and I am so happy for this answer” instead of complaining and wondering why I didn’t get what I asked for!

I hope you got every thing you wanted this year and I’ll tell you right now that I did! I have peace, joyand I know that I have the loveof God that passes all understanding

God is good. Let’s get ready for the New Year and a new decade, 2020!
