Have I mentioned lately....

Have I mentioned lately how blessed we all are?  I was pondering this morning during my devotions how much I have to be thankful for.  I spend almost every day at work with customers grumbling.. they grumble that their insurance is expensive, they grumble that they lost their house, they grumble about politics, they grumble that prices are high for gas, etc... And you know what- It is real easy to jump on the band wagon and grumble with them.  What is wrong with me?!  Grumbling only leads to discontentment, and it turn you end up with a sour attitude towards EVERYTHING- nothing ever makes you happy-
I don't want to be known as a person that has a Negative attitude about LIFE.  I pray daily that I remind myself of how BLESSED I am and to keep my focus on the things that matter most!

Blessings,

Vegas Girl

Thanksgiving is a very serious mandate. I've only started reading Ann Vosskamp's A THOUSAND GIFTS, but that thought has already impacted me.
