From today's email

I like this perspective. 

"Sweet Jesse came up to me after church on Sunday and said that she had to scrape the ice off her windshield this week after our unusual Texas “blizzard”; something she had done far too many times while living up in Michigan. Oddly enough, she said the more she scraped, the happier she became. I instantly added that to my mental list of “strangest things I have ever heard.” But then she went on to explain that the reason she became happier was because of the fact that she had the strength to do it (remember she has Muscular Dystrophy).

Later it occurred to me that we should be thankful that, by God’s grace, we are able to do the things we don’t like to do. (Now I’m talking strangely, huh?) I don’t know about you, but my list of things I don’t like to do is pretty long. Which now means that my list of things I’m thankful for just got longer. :-)"

Not Jesse's car. ;-)
