Last year when my oldest son was on vacation with Grandma in Florida, a storm moved through one night. She was in another room, he was eating a brownie at her kitchen table, when the power went out. She heard him scoot his chair back right away; to get up and go where, it's hard to say. She called out, "Just eat your brownie." He replied with a "huh?" Here comes wisdom. Her response was, "well so what if the lights went out, you still know where you are at the table, and your brownie still tastes good, even in the dark." Genius.
Stay with me here, is that not deep? At the very least life applicable? Next time someone starts complaining (yes, even you and me), say, "just eat your brownie." Be grateful for what you do have when the lights go out; don't consider your blessing lost just because your circumstances have darkened.
