Be Thankful . . .

     Even though, I complain that the water level is too high in the summer and too low in the winter, Thank You, Lord, that I have Barren River Lake; for there are those who don’t have such a beautiful place to enjoy.
     Even though, my fishing boat is not the latest model and my motor is not the most powerful, Thank You, Lord, that I have a boat and motor; for there are those who don’t.
     Even though, my camper is not spacious enough and doesn’t have all the modern conveniences, Thank You, Lord, that I have a camper; for there are those who don’t have such luxuries.
     Even though, my pontoon boat is never big enough or fast enough, Thank You, Lord, that I have one; for there are those who have never enjoyed a relaxing afternoon floating on the lake.
     Even though, I whine that the fish are never big enough and that I never catch enough of them, Thank You, Lord, that I catch some; for there are those who have never experienced the tug of a fish at the end of a line.
     Even though, I criticize that the recreation areas are too crowded and there are not enough boat ramps, Thank You, Lord, that I have first-class recreational facilities, for there are those who are not as fortunate.
     Even though, my job interferes with my hunting and fishing, camping and swimming, Thank You, Lord, for my job; for there are those who do not have jobs.
     Even though, I gripe that I don’t get to spend enough time at the lake, Thank You, Lord, for my life, and for all that You provide, and for Barren River Lake.
