Yesterday my wife and kids left on a road-trip that will cover over 3 weeks and 4,000 miles. To say I miss them already would be accurate, but does not encompass all I feel. Since I had some extra time to myself , I kept ice packs on the pinched nerve in my back and watched "The Book of Eli".
As I went to bed in my strangely quiet and empty house last night, I became aware that I take my family for granted too often. As I wrestled with the sharp pain in my back, I became aware that I take my health for granted too often. As I reflected on the movie I watched, I became keenly aware that I take God's Word for granted too often.
Lord, please forgive me and help me to change on all three counts.
