About half an hour ago I was over at Greg's General Store visiting for a while and found that the major topic of conversation was Allergies. So far, Greg's friends all suffer from allergies, and since their theme for every Thursday is "Thankful Thursday', one might wonder what there is to be thankful for in allergies. Greg's friends are thankful to be able to buy medication that relieves their allergies. Well that makes sense.
I hope I will not bore you if I mention one of my favorite topics once more -- that is CATS. No, I'm not a Crazy Cat Woman! But I am thankful that I am not allergic to cats (so it seems, after working with them for the past 9 months). I could well have been, as allergies are quite significant in my family and my sister is VERY allergic to them. But I am sincerely thankful that I can tolerate cats as I find working with them very relaxing and a relief from stress. Of course the Lord is the source of our relief from stress. Prayer and reading the Scriptures are a major source of relief from stress, but I have found that God also gives us abundantly what we need to survive in this life so in my case He also gave me cats. What has He given you? Whatever it might be, think about it and be thankful.
