I think we can all lose sight of how blessed our lives are from time to time.
We begin to focus all our energy on the "worldy" issue of the moment. I'm not saying that these issues aren't "stressful", but if we were to keep our focus on the "eternal" and not so much on what's temporary, I believe we'd be MUCH better off on a daily basis.
"Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." (Colossains 3:2)
