missing coffee

My son and my son-in-law BOTH work at Starbucks where the employees receive a free bag of coffee every week.  Do I have coffee to wake up to this morning?  NO!!!!  And that isn't a good thing!

It made me consider all the things I depend on outside of the obvious spiritual dependence on the Lord... hmmm

(notice coffee was capitalized)
my husband
my parents
my sister
my friends
health - the ability to work
communication from the outside (tv/radio)
a car with gas in it
all the food I could possibly eat
fresh water
a clock
heat or cooling
a comfortable bed

Obviously I could go on and on.  I like to think I am independent, but I am not.

Fully dependent first of all on what God has planned for me, secondly everything I listed is temporary and yet these are the things I depend on - so, I am not independent.  Could I survive without them?  I don't want to know the answer to that question because I like being comfortable very much.  I like being surrounded by blessings.

What do you depend on?  Turn your what I depend on  list into your praise list.  I think the Lord likes to know that we don't take these things for granted and that we realize they are temporary blessings straight from Him!

Now, please excuse me as I drive myself to Starbucks...
