Anyway, after watching this movie, I was humbled again about how blessed I am... and how selfish I can be as well. I confessed the way I let myself be discontent or even envious of what others have at times. I felt like I was seeing through a new set of eyes in some ways, and that I was truly grateful for what the Lord had blessed me with. And I felt happy... happy in a way that went far beyond material possessions or security or whatever. I felt happy because I knew that God was enough for me, and that He will be my portion each and every day.
This morning, God sent me a reminder of that truth in a very profound way. I usually wake up to Nathan's face inches from mine, saying something along the lines of, "I'm up, Mommy!" or "Are you awake, Mommy?" But today, my little boy woke me up with these words: "Are you happy, Mommy?"
I just had to smile..
I am happy.
Thanks for the reminder, God!
