Things I'm Ungrateful For

Guys the rain. Two straight weeks of it. Anyone who owns a business effected by weather can probably agree with the frustration of trying to get work done the last few weeks. That includes all of you moms and babysitters right? ha!
(Ah, but the sun came out yesterday! Woohoo!)

My schedule is being messed with. I haven't been able to get enough work done. Blogging has been put on the back burner. Only the absolute essentials get done.

I'm tired...Blah, blah, blah.

Do you ever go in stages of being so content and happy, and then all of the sudden, it seems you have a problem with almost everything? My goodness. That has been me for the past two weeks! During a season of being thankful, what is wrong with me?

On Sunday my pastor was teaching from Hebrews 2 and talking about how Christians need to be constantly checking our focus. Refocus on God and what He has done, and what He is doing, and how we are living because of that.

I sit in church, take notes, and think "yes, this is what I need". I ask God to help me with this, and determine this will be an area I focus on this week.

Tuesday hits. I'm discontented in almost everything. I get cranky when plans aren't going the way I want them to. As I'm making my 45 minute drive to the house I'm staying at, I realize my focus is lost.

I think of the Psalms I've been praying through. The many many things God has done and who He is. I needed to refocus. I'm so glad that God stops us and helps us realize how silly we are acting sometimes.

If that wasn't enough, I watched this video.

Yeah, nothing to complain about.

It's the season of Thanksgiving. Remember what is important and refocus!

Have a great Wednesday, everyone!
