Gratefully resting

What was the first day of vacation like? I cried because I was homesick this morning. I was taken to the grocery store and told to choose anything that qualified as a treat and nothing I normally ate. That was overwhelming and caused my brain to freeze because I am a quite habitual person and thinking about things I don’t have is something I do much less often than I used to. Why long for steak when one can be grateful for chicken instead?

I have continued to converse with God about the box of chocolates I was given. I do not believe I have told you about the box of chocolates. I will another time in detail, but I realized something startling through one of the gifts He recently gave me: I am not very good at accepting good gifts. I continued to study Matthew. God is great. He is good. Anything good in me comes from Him. That is what He says.

For I know that nothing good lives in me; that is in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry out. Romans 7
