So... I've been thinking about different little blessings that I believe sometimes or often we over look. For instance, friends! They are such a blessing, but we (at least i know i do!) take them for granite! Until you loose one you do not notice how precious they truly are! Also, I never realized until dad lost his job how much of a treat eating out was! You know.... I mean think about it, Until you do not have something it seems immaterial! Although, its also the same thing with God. Why do we all the sudden need Him when things are going wrong, but do not cherish Him when things are going good? We should be earnestly seeking Him just as much during the great times as the bad/hard times!

Anyway.... It's just a thought!

Great thought, Jen! We do need to cherish the sweet fellowship with the Lord while things seem to be going our way AND when things aren't - it's important to draw our strength from Him and not let our circumstances keep us down.

Cherishing His fellowship,

I do the same thing...I take things for granted. Take breathing. I always forget to thank God for breathing and my health...The ability to get out of bed each morining. God is an awesome God...He knows our thought and hearts. Always lean on HIM.

You are absolutely right. We tend to take a lot of things for granted. When they are no longer there we are like "what do I do now?" We all need to love like there is no tomorrow and love just as Christ loved us.
