and then i remembered...

"But he/she who trusts in the LORD will prosper." Proverbs 28:25

Fed the dogs my leftovers...
Couldn't decide what to wear...
Disappointed my car isn't a self-start...
Frustrated pet hair is everywhere...
                                                   and then i remembered.

What did i remember? 

... the still-hungry child sneaking extra bites from the teacher's snack box.
... children in worn-out, ill-fitting clothes and oversized shoes.
... students walking to school in cold, wet weather.
... the boy checking out a book on roaches because he had many at home.

And what i remember most is their constantly smiling faces, in spite of their hardships or difficulties. How can i not always be grateful?  
The real gold in life is not found at the end of the rainbow, but in the heart of the believer who trusts in the Lord.

God, how come those with less sometimes have more peace?  Is having less best -- reminding us we need only to depend on You for everything? Is this the key to peace? From what i see, i believe it is.

God will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is the key to this treasure.

we are loved and chosen by God,
may we live like we believe it,
