Adaptation: Change in behavior of a person or group in response to new or modified conditions.
There was a time I was laying in a hospital bed almost ten years ago fighting for my life due to severe complications from a ruptured appendix..16 days I was in that bed between surgeries and I specifically remember having a clear thought in the middle of all the drugs coursing through my system “I would love to be at work or somewhere paying bills right now..”…something that I complained about on a daily basis became my desire simply because my desperation to live made my most mundane activities seem beautiful. That desperation highlighted the beauty in the smallest of things. Years later I find myself complaining about the very things I longed for during those weeks..how quickly we forget. This is the human condition. Isn’t it wonderful that we have a heavenly Father who picks up where we fall short? For those of us going back to work from the holiday I would like to encourage you to stop to consider the beauty God has for you even in the most unexpected moments..tune into them because they are there. Look for even the smallest of blessings. He’s always there loving on you. Speaking to you in whispers. Take the time to remember who you are, were you’ve come from and where you could have been….now enjoy♥
