It hit home

Today, our pastor's sermon was on being thankful in good times and bad. He used a story about a flower shop that has a unique "special" during Thanksgiving time: long stemmed roses with no flower petals, only thorns. The whole point was to thank God for the "petals" and the "thorns" in life, for that is when you draw closer to God, to rely on him through difficult situations, etc. But, we should do that daily not just when we are going through hard times.
Wow! That really hit me. How guilty I am of only relying on Him when times are tough.
Just something for you to think about this during this upcoming season.
Have a great week!
