I love living in Washington, D.C. and I appreciate all it has to offer. Everything is so convenient and there is so much to see and do. Being in Laurinburg, N.C. made me realize just how much I appreciate my hometown. Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy traveling to other places it’s just easy to take where you are for granted and until you go some place different.
I wonder how many other things that are available to us everyday that we’ve taken for granted. I’m sure if we began to list them it would be a very long list. What we must realize is that being thankful helps us to enjoy our journey.
So today I woke up with a new appreciation and thankfulness to God for where I live and all the conveniences it offers. No it’s not a perfect place but it’s my hometown.
What about you? Are there things in your life that you are taking for granted? I encourage you to stop and give thanks for all the things that God has given us through His Son Jesus Christ.
