All the world knows March 7, 2010

All the world knows what I possess, and I do not know it myself! (from “The Nightingale” by Hans Christian Andersen)

Wouldn’t it be terrible to go through life without realizing how blessed we are?  And yet, I think that’s what happens too often here in America.  We forget how luxurious and wonderful our homes are, no matter how small.  We don’t realize how lucky we are to have food in such abundance.  We are never satisfied with all of the things we have.  But all the world knows.  I pray that we will know it too.
