moan and groan,
feel uneasiness about,
have resentment over.
Oh how many times do we do this?? How many times do I go about my day worrying, complaining, grumbling to God, sighing over the latest sibling argument, another load of laundry, you're in time out again....
...when I can choose to be THANKFUL.
Gratefulness is the key to a happy, full, joy-filled heart!
"give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
1 Thessalonians 5:18
There will always be something that we could worry over or complain about.
There will be hard times. Extra bills, sick kids, the house is dirty, there's not enough time to do everything, disease, suffering, loss.
But there is always something to be thankful for.
We have a choice.
What will yours be?
