Welcome Nature

     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.
 

God takes delight when we rejoice
in all that he has done
and when we thank Him for the love
He shows us through His Son.

The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thought
