Thanking God When the Furnace Quits

Why am I thanking God when the furnace quits?

Because we have three space heaters to keep us mostly warm.

Because it was only 40 something with lots of sunshine and no wind.

Because it was not 10 degrees and windy.

Because I babysit for a heating and cooling guy and he was already coming here first thing this morning.

Because his wife suggested just trading for babysitting instead of us writing them a check.

Because we have plenty of warm blankets.

Because we have milk, cocoa and sugar.

Because we have warm clothes.

And, because God said, "Give thanks in all circumstances".  I don't always, but I'm trying.  I'll admit, if it had happened in January my attitude would probably have been different.
