Today in church the pastor was talking about thankfulness. I am not good at being thankful. Well thats not entirely true. I am very appreciative of gifts I receive. I am just not good at having a thankful spirit is more accurate.
I tend to whine and complain about every little thing, driving my husband insane. Apparently when Moses and the children of Isreal were complaining God smote them. I don’t remember the verse, but it said he was displeased. I am thinking that whining still displeases God, so I am going to make an attempt to be more upbeat. Especially since when I have kids I will expect them to have a cheerful disposition even when doing things that are less than entertaining.
So starting today, and ending on Thanksgiving, I am going to write about something I am thankful for everyday. These will be in no particular order, except for the one I am planning for Thanksgiving is the most important, but otherwise, its just whatever seems the easiest to write that day. Sometimes I will say why I am thankful, sometimes it will be a story, sometimes facts, but overall positive. In my personal life I am going to try and stop myself whenever I start being a big whiney baby. Which is a lot.
