Rich (Music Moves Me Monday)
Do you ever catch yourself in conversation saying, "If I were rich I would......" or "When I win the lottery I will....." I find myself doing that at times. It is okay to dream sometimes, isn't it?
When I think about this question, I can't help but to think of poor Tevye in Fiddle on the Roof. He wanted so much to be wealthy. Here is the song from that movie. (this is my part of Music Moves Me Mondays)
Does being rich just mean that you have a lot of money? Can it mean that you are rich in other ways? Wasn't Tevye really a wealthy man ?
In the dictionary one of the definitions of rich means well supplied, abounding or valuable. Didn't Tevey really have wealth?
As I look out on my life I too find that I am rich. I have a wonderful life, not perfect, but rich in so many things. I have a good husband who loves me and has a good heart and character. I have the best family and friends in the world. I have always been blessed to have good people in my life. I am very grateful for that. I also have the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. I would be lost without it. I live in a great country.
So, therefore, I ask you; Are we all not rich?
