I must honestly confess I don’t know how good I have it until I don’t have it so good.

So, I'm sitting here trying not to shiver too much and drinking a very
hot cup of coffee. My wife makes many things well, but nothing quite as 
well as hot coffee. What she doesn't realize is, as I'm drinking my hot 
coffee, I'm thinking of summer. 

I'm not sure who was the first one who said it, but I think I agree with
it, “Opposites attract.” And nothing could be more opposite than my 
winter wife and her summer husband. 

As I thought about this it came to me that the reason I appreciate
summer so much is because of the winter. It is during the wintertime 
that I have this longing for the summer weather. If it wasn't for 
winter, I'm not sure I would appreciate summer as much as I do. 

I always have a religious twist to things that are happening in my life.
As I thought of this it came to my mind that the trials in my life 
cause me to appreciate the amazing grace of God. It wasn't for the hard 
times I wouldn't appreciate the good times. 

I like what James says about this. “Blessed is the man that endureth
temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, 
which the Lord hath promised to them that love him” (James 1:12). 

I must honestly confess I don't know how good I have it until I don't
have it so good.
