perspective.

i was complaining about the heater not working in my room last night but after seeing this picture of the living conditions in haiti, found over at the csm, i was ashamed of myself. i was reminded to be thankful for the room i live in, the food i have in my fridge, the family and friends that love me, and the father, the almighty, the maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen.
we are so very lucky.

Very good reminder. I am sorry for leaving your room because it was cold. Thanks for keeping it in perspective, and reminding us all too as well.

that is definitely very good perspective. another example: on friday adam was sad about not getting the summer job he wanted {although he already has a very good offer}. then my roommate found out that one of her family friends had passed away from cancer. lets just say adam realized he has nothing to be sad about!
