Big storm, no power. Now what?

Major storms last night. The neighborhood is a mess. The power is out so what’s a girl to do? Especially when her plan included the use of electricity.

It got me to thinking about the children I sponsor in third world countries. This is the norm for them. 

Hot water? Wouldn’t they just love that? How about just water in general?

My cable isn’t working. My phones aren’t working. The garage door isn’t working.

I’ve had to throw away food.

When I write all this, it reminds me how pampered and privileged I am. It is only by the grace of God I live in this United States of Abundance.

I am humiliated.

I am humiliated that this even bothers me at all. Shame on me for being annoyed at absence of of what I consider a necessity that others 

But how do I get beyond it? Do I move to another country? What would that accomplish? Really?

I think what I do is be as generous with my resources as I can possibly be. I cease from acquiring or better yet cease from even thinking I need more.

And yet, next week I’m going to share some exciting news that is exactly about acquiring more.

Oh, to know the answers to some of these quandaries,

To find that balance.

I hope I’m not the only one that finds themselves feeling blessed more than they feel they have a right to be. 

What do you think?

How do you rationalize it all?

God bless and have a good day.
