Amen. I have had great success with the "word switcheroo" in my own life. Thank you for this reminder.

I loved your entry and marvel at your title which is a spectacularly wonderful way of presenting the topic and bringing it to life!

Great job.

God bless~
I am going to put the word "switcheroo" in my own vocabulary. It is interesting how one word can change your perspective.
What a great line "What one person takes for granted and considers a nuisance, is a significant blessing to another. "

Great entry.

I love your perspective and the creative reminder to simply switch a negative with a positive word - it can indeed change our whole outlook! Thanks for sharing.
I love this. It's a reminder I certainly need on a regular basis. God has blessed us with free will over our attitudes, but he wants us to see the good things that surround us.

The only red ink I have is tiny. In the first part of the piece, you use the first person pkural voice, but then switch to singular and at the end, you switch to second person, which might come off as too preachy for some. Instead, continue in the first person, but add a prayer at the end. For example: Any circumstance can be a blessing if I keep my eyes on God.
Dear Jesus, thank you for all of the many blessings you give me each day. Open my eyes so that I can see everything through your eyes. Help me do a switcheroo on my perceived negatives. Amen.

You really have a knack for devotions. If you haven't written any for the FW devotions, I'd urge you to do so. I know you'll bless countless people with your words.
