"I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength." - Philippians 4:12-13
I’m sitting here in the waiting room at the AAA office - there are about 20 people here with me. People of different ages and ethnic backgrounds, some of them are wearing masks because of the fear of the Coronavirus, others are impatient and others like myself are on their cell phones keeping themselves occupied until called.
Thoughts are racing through my mind. Are they anxious? Perturbed for waiting, bored or irritated? Today, I’m content and grateful. I just had a wonderful lunch with Chelsea. We shared our feelings, struggles, joys and how we are grateful for God’s loving grace upon our lives.
As I sit here, my eyes are welling up with tears, not because I am sad. My heart is filled with gratitude for the ordinary. The ordinary things that God gives us daily as His blessings.
May God continue to bless you too! He loves to give all of us the ordinary that He turns into extraordinary. Thank you Lord for Chelsea & for today!
I pray that you will experience the joy of this Easter season with your loved ones.
With much gratitude,
Betty Alvarez Ham
