Several years ago. I read a story about a 92-year-old Christian woman who was legally
blind. Inspite of her limitation. She was always neatly dressed, with her hair carefully brushed and her makeup
tastefully applied. Each morning she would meet the day with eagerness.
After her husband of 70 years died, it became necessary for her to go to a nursing home where she
could recieve proper care. On the day of the move, a helpful neighbor drove her there and guided her into the lobby.
Her room wasn't ready, so she waited patiently in the lobby for several hours.
When an attendant finally came for her, she smiled sweetly as she maneuvered her walk to the
elevator. The staff member described her room to her, including the new curtains that had been hung on the windows. "I love
it," She declared. "But Mrs. Jones, you haven't seen your room yet," the attendant replied. "That doesn't have
anything to do with it," she said. "Happiness is something you choose. Whether I like my room or not doesn't
depend on how it's arranged. I'ts how I arrange my mind."
The Bible says, "Rejoiced in the Lord" (Philippiians 4:4). Remind yourself often of all that
Jesus has given to you and be thankful. That' show to arrange your mind.
