Under the Weather

I haven't posted on a few days because I've been under the weather with [what seems to be] some sort of stomach flu, more accurately known as gastroenteritis. Today I am back at work, but not 100% recovered. I am functioning, for which I am thankful. I must admit that I'm feeling especially grateful this year (despite some of the problems my wife and I are facing with potential upcoming expenses, her health, etc). Easter is approaching, Spring has finally arrived with its promise of warmer weather, greenery and blossoms.

Always rejoice, constantly pray, in everything give thanks. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. -1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NET)

The important thing is that I am grateful and thankful for my present circumstances-- including the unpleasant ones. Until we find some acceptance and gratitude for the situations we face in life, we can never really know true contentment. Please don't misunderstand what I am writing. I do not wish to paint a rosy picture of being totally happy and accepting of every little thing that comes down the pike. Such a person I would like to be, but I am not there yet. However, I am on the road...

Prayers for my recovery and a reinvigorated drive to serve our Lord are always appreciated.
