Do You Celebrate Green Lights?

I read this comment and it made me think:

“Today, while I was driving my grandfather to his doctor’s appointment, I complained about hitting 2 red lights in a row.  My grandfather chuckled and said, “You always complain about the red lights, but you never celebrate the green ones.”

When we’re experiencing trials, how often we ask the question, “I wonder what God is trying to teach me?”

I’ve often thought, “What about when blessings overtake us, why don’t we say, “I wonder what God is trying to teach me?

There’s an old song I learned growing up <back when dirt was new> :-)…

“Count your blessings.  Name them one by one.  Count your blessings.  See what God has done…”

Ya know…it’s true…

Blessings are an important tool in God’s hands to teach us something very important.

Today…and as a developed habit in 2011…let’s celebrate the green lights in our lives!
