Complaining and Thankfulness :)

I have a headache, I am so tired, i have tons of laundry to do, my house is a mess……….did I mention that I am tired? Ok, I know I try to post positive things…..but I don’t have much positive energy left today. I must have taken complaining pills this morning instead of my vitamins.

So let’s see if I can turn things around………

I am thankful today for………thinking………thankful for this horrible headache??? NO……..still thinking………

I am thankful that I could drop my son off at the flagpole of his middle school today and he could pray with other christian kids.

I am thankful that I could watch The Inventor get first place in a cross country race today, and then watch her close friend from church get 2nd place!

I am thankful that even when I am weary, God is strong.

I am thankful for my glorious, soft, comfy bed to lay my tired body on each night

I am thankful for Salad Works where I can take The Inventor for a cheap, nutritious meal after her race and before soccer practice.

I am thankful for my blog………God uses it to change my complaining heart to a Thankful one! 🙂 There is much to be thankful for today. I can now go to sleep with a thankful heart.

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! Psalm 107:1

And good night everyone, it’s only 8:35….but I am off to sleep…..Zzzzzzz….zzzzzzzzzzzzz..

  1. I’m especially thankful for my nice soft bed at the end of those kind of days when it seems easier to complain than praise. I’ve been there sister. Get a good night’s rest. Everything always is better in the morning, because His grace is new every morning.

    Isn’t it amazing how when we begin to be thankful and praise, we are transformed! Atta girl! Blessings to you today. I pray your headache goes away and you are able to enjoy this brand new day!

  3. I hope you had a good night sleep.

    And you already know I can relate so much to this post 🙂

    Love you 🙂

    I can relate! I sure do love falling into my nice soft bed at day’s end as well!!
    I’m thankful that my oldest daughter also was able to participate in “see you at the Pole” at her high school yesterday. Glory to God for our children taking a stand!!!

    See You At the Pole is such a wonderful thing! Glad your son could participate.

    I am thankful for the sweat dripping from my brow. I am thankful for the loud noises of grinding in the shop that has given me a headache. I am thankful for the yucky smell of whatever my husband just opened to put on that fender.

    I really am thankful because if I wasn’t experiencing any of these things it would most likely mean that I was still homebound an unable to work!

    God is good, isn’t He? I know it has been a year since my last surgery, but I am still in awe of being aware that I am walking around all by myself. And sometimes I’m even kinda fast! :o)

    BTW, thank you for the award! I’ve been absent from my friends for quite a while and I noticed it the other night. I will pass it along very soon!

    Hugs and I hope your headache is gone, gone, gone!
