It's all about perspective

ADVERTISEMENT

Sunday evening Amy and I sat down and looked over the summer calendar and our family budget. July 28th we will celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We had hoped to head to the beach with the family, (before Lauren goes off to college), and I was looking forward to seeing the Space Shuttle launch. That is one of the things on my "bucket list" and their are only two more scheduled Space Shuttle launches left.

We learned that after figuring in the part of Lauren's tuition we were responsible for, that there would be no money for a vacation. I will admit that I was disaopointed.

Monday morning, still feeling sorry for myself, I asked all the listeners to call in with their "realistcic vacations they would go on if they could afford it."

The first call brought everything in perspective.......a father of an 11 year old daughter who had been fighting cancer for a couple of years called in and said he would love to go on a vacation anywhere with his daughter, because they were calling in Hospice care for her that day. Wow! Talk about a sobering call. God convicted me that I had no reason to complain or sulk because I couldn't spend a few days at a beach. I am so blessed.

I prayed for that dad,his daughter and their family and encourage you to do the same. If you do get to take a vacation with your family this summer-thank God for ALL of your blessings-not just the beautiful beach or time away.
