Yesterday at family worship we talked about these verses from 2 Corinthians 4:
"For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal."
which reminded me of this video I shared on facebook awhile back. Seeing all these martyrs give up everything for Christ will get you thinking - at least it got me thinking that we really do have a lot to be thankful for.
By the way yesterday was the first day of school and it went well as we all began getting used to the new schedule, etc. I'm glad the Lord has given me a family to help and children to work with now when I don't have a family of my own, and I was also glad at the end of a very busy day to crash with a move and glass of wine:-) It's been awhile since Jenny and I have had a movie night so it was good to get to relax together. I hope everyone has a good day!
