I am rich…not to be confused with wealthy, though I am that too by some standards. Our Pastor was ruminating about how easy it is for us to cry the financial blues, forgetting the untold blessings we have, barely noticing that our every need is met. It was a short aside that he ended by saying, I am a rich man. If I were an “Amen!-ing” kind of person, I would have “Amen!ed” that. The verse I read in my devotions this morning was Proverbs 15:15 “For the happy heart, life is a continual feast.” And to that, in the privacy of my own home, in the quiet of my heart, I whisper, amen. Life is a feast. An all you can eat country buffet. My happy heart takes it all in until I’m so full I think I’ll burst.
Of course there are a few things on the buffet that I don’t like, and yet… they may be good for me.
