I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
Philippians 4:12 (context)
I stayed home from work sick yesterday, and my primary activity evolved into blowing my nose, with breaks for doing other things like reading a book. The Kleenex we bought last, although billed as ultra-soft, still turned my nose into a sad, raw, red zone much faster than I might have expected.
So it was with great pleasure that I pulled out a Kleenex and realized that I supplied myself with lotion Kleenex here at work. Really, it takes so little to make me happy these days. Some nice soft Kleenex and I’m all set.
PS – I know I really am sick when all I want to eat is maybe a little bit of apple sauce. This doesn’t bode well for continuing to commute by bike in sub-freezing (20°F this morning, with a nice brisk wind in my face) weather.
