What blessings we find when we are not too busy complaining!

I just wanted to take a few moments out of my day to say THANK YOU GOD for such a glorious day! What a blessing you gave each of us today with the warmth and sunshine. Such an unexpected gift amidst the harshness of the cold winter!
I give all praise and glory to you for such a blessed day!

I had such a heartfelt conversation with my Mother, although brief, it was one of those moments to treasure. In it we discussed how God really dislikes complaining. I am from this moment forward striving to not first think of the negative, but FIND the blessing in everything. Hope Y'all will to!
In Him!

What a great attitude to have! The weather last week was particularly depressing, the economy is going in the toilet (so they tell us), and everybody seems to have the post-holiday "blahs". HOWEVER, This is the day the Lord hath made, I will rejoice and be glad in it! I've got a job, my family's healthy, and my friends are always there to pick me up - I'm blessed!

It is all in the attitude. I tell my kids that all time. You can chose to whine and complaine or do somehting about it.....starting off by rejoicing in what the Lord has given. All about attitude.
1. Smile.
2. complain

The choice is easy.
