More and more lately I have been reminded of how blessed I am. I may not be rich by Australian standards but I am rich compared to many people in the world.
"Three billion people live on less than $2 per day while 1.3 billion get by on less than $1 per day. Seventy percent of those living on less than $1 per day are women."
I have days where I worry because I haven't sold anything from the store and I haven't made any money but the Lord gently reminds me that I am rich, I still can go and buy coffee and cake and spend $15 on this luxury without thinking twice.
There are days I look at other peoples houses and I wish I had a bigger house with a double garage and an office and more storage and a bigger bathroom and again I am reminded that I have a roof over my head and not only does it keep the weather out I have heating and cooling to make my home comfortable and cosy.
