Running Errands

So many blessings are taken for granted:
having a car and being able to drive about,
shopping here and there, running errands
while many in the world are devastated.
Homes are flooded or destroyed by nature,
earthquakes or war's destruction visits them,
while others have freedom and safety to go
where they wish, living quiet everyday lives.

Amen! We just said today we are grateful for our cars that they are still good while my husband is in school again.

How very true. I know I take so very much for granted. After all the devastation in other countries the past few days it seems to really hit home.

Everytime we turn on the news we keep seeing such devastation in other parts of the world. It's really important for us to stop and appreciate what we've got.
