Thank you, Lord!

Beres-beres buku bekas, tiba-tiba nemu diari jaman dulu kala. Weks, bau debu sih tapi penuh kenangan :)

Ada satu tulisan yang aku suka, dan aku yakin itu bukan buah dari pikiranku. Hehe…

Ehm, sepertinya kata-kata yang aku temukan waktu browsing di internet dulu.

Pesan di dalam tulisan itu bagus, mengajak kita untuk selalu bersyukur dengan apapun keadaan kita sekarang.


Thank you, Lord!

Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings each morning,

Thank you, Lord, that I can hear.

There are those who are deaf.


Even though I keep my eyes tighty closed against the morning light as long as possible,

Thank you, Lord, that I can see.

There are many who are blind.


Even though I huddle in my bed and put off the physical effort of rising,

Thank you, Lord, that I have strength to rise.

There are many who are bedfast.


Even though the first hour of my day is hectic, when socks are lost, toast are burned, tempers are short,

Thank you, Lord, for my family.


Even though our breakfast table never looks like the pictures in the magazine and the menu is at times unbalanced,

Thank you, Lord, for the food we have.

There are so many who are hungry.


Even though the routine of my job is monotonous,

Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to work.

There are many who have no job.


Even though I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day, and wish my circumstances were not quite so modest,

Thank you, Lord, for the gift of life
