|I love this :D|
As we were sitting down to breakfast, we were talking about it all. We figured, you know, we have no water this morning, but that won't be for long, and we almost never have the water turned off. My mum's cousin, who still lives in South Africa, lives in an area where she has to go through having the water off at least a few times a week, often for hours at a time, sometimes even multiple times a day! And she never knows exactly when this is going to happen, so she has to constantly keep a bucketful of water handy. They often are without power too, as the government tries to save money. Thinking about that made us realize how blessed we are to live where we live, and to always have water, and electricity. A few little hours once or twice a year are nothing at all to complain about! :)
One day, I dream of making a difference over in countries like that, but right now, I'm just feeling grateful for all the blessing I have been given - blessing I am totally undeserving of, and have only been given, thanks to the incredible grace and love of my God and Savior - all those blessings I normally take for granted - food, clothes, a home, heating, electricity, education...
