A friend and I were enjoying some sunshine today. Ah, it was glorious. As we were chatting, an old man walked by and said hello. We asked him how he was doing, and you know what he said? He said, "Well, I'm still vertical, so that's good." I chuckled at his clever response and that was that. Later on, God brought it back to mind, and I realized how I was taking for-granted being alive today. Some would disregard that thirty-second conversation today as random, but I love knowing that God purposely arranged it, in order that I might be grateful, for being vertical.
