1000::Things I Take For Granted Edition

Clean water from my faucet whenever I want it.

Electricity whenever I flip the switch.

Internet whenever I turn my computer on.

A refrigerator and cupboards with plenty of food.

A job that affords me the luxury to buy most things I want in addition to all of the things I need.

A wonderful church that holds God-honoring and authentic relationships at its core.

A God who cares about what I'm going through and who I am intimately and knowing that while things may not be easy, I can trust that He is working things out for good.

Kroger and its easy access to more varieties of grocery items than I really need.

A husband who will vacuum and fold laundry without asking.

Free time.  And the fact that it is a luxury, not something I am entitled to.

Public transportation that affords Shawn and I the ability to have one car.

The crisp, clean air I breath every morning.

A family where I always know I am loved.

holy experience

We are so blessed to be living in a first world's amazing how many things we take for granted.

Whenever we start complaining about something stupid or overhear other people complaining, Jon has been stopping to say "that's a first world problem" and it kinds of puts our frustrations in perspective (i.e. cable guy doesn't come on time, wireless internet doesn't work in starbucks, etc)

This is a great one. Sometimes being thankful has more to do with the little things.
