5 Loaves & 2 Fishes

Remember the story of Jesus feeding the 5000 - he only had five loaves and two fishes.  (Can you relate!)  I find it remarkable that before he blessed it and fed the multitude, he thanked his Father for it, even though it wasn't enough
There are so many areas in our lives that can qualify as 5 loaves and 2 fishes: financial, relationships, health, etc.  A good starting point is to be grateful for what we do have, even if it is not enough.  This morning I thought, "Ingratitude is the lowest kind of poverty, and gratitude is the highest form of riches."

Then, watch the miracle.

Great little reminder. DId you really just make up that little line?? It's awesome! So quotable. By the way, Lily went to bed without me laying next to her for an hour, thanks to you. Wahoo!

Yep, I really did just make it up. I think that I needed it. That is great about Lily going to bed - glad she remembered!
