Being Thankful in Uncertain Times

“Always be joyful. Keep on praying. No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God’s Will for you who belong in Christ Jesus.”-1 Thessalonians 16-18

Yesterday, as I was swiping through Facebook, I saw disappointing news of how the world is continuing to change do to the Coronavirus. As I looked around my room, I saw that I had much to be thankful and joyful about.

At my feet I have my beloved Pit Bull Terrier named Duke. He brings joy into my life. He’s my best non-human friend.  My grandpa and I are both healthy and safe. I have a load of laundry to do and put away. This means that I have clothes to wear. I have food and snacks to eat.

When I look at my desk, I see a ballot to be filled out. Yes, I vote despite having a visual impairment. I am thankful that my state offers mail in voting. That means I have a choice in what low vision devices I use or if I use sighted assistance to vote. Voting by mail means that I do not have to take the bus to return my ballot. This helps cut down on transportation needs.

The other day I got my “pay” for the month. I was able to put down a down payment towards my Christmas shopping. I have all but one bill left for this year. I feel thankful and blessed that I can get the little money I have. Setting up a business is hard, but I feel that this is how the Lord wants me to run my career. He may allow me to do some part time work, however he will let me thrive by using my writing talent to reach so many people.

Lastly, I am thankful for the technology that I have. I am visually impaired and even though technology can be annoying sometimes it usually works well. I love being able to use my laptop with ZoomText to access the internet, my echo to wake me up in the morning, and my book player to listen to books.

Even though I know the world is changing I know in my world there is a lot to be joyful for. Most people when they hear about my life situation about being disabled and having little resources suggest that I must be miserable. However, I rejoice, and I am glad for all that I have.
