Last night I made us an ordinary meal of chicken, rice , potatoes and a salad. It was nothing fancy, but it was wholesome and good. My family swiped it. They loved it. They appreciated the warm plate of food and one another's company around the dinner table. In that moment I was intensely aware of what a privilege it was to share a meal together and to even have food to eat. We take things for granted so easily. This period of lock-down has certainly sensitized us to everything we have to be grateful for. Even a trip to the store is no longer just something we do without much thought, no, it has become an event to be planned and carefully executed. Freedom has been merely a thought other people fought for and which we simply took for granted. Now, we appreciate every moment when we can leave our houses and we long for church gatherings.

The best things in life are free, yet we all take it for granted until it's usually too late or we just prefer to be blissfully ignorant.ReplyDelete
