I'm having a big one at my house this afternoon if anyone wants to join in! I have had the worst attitude and self-absorbed morning. I want to get out of this PITy. Yes, it's a PIT. I've heard the only way to get out is to start being grateful, so here is my list:
I am grateful for:
A nice home that isn't falling apart.
Two paid-for vehicles.
Lots of food.
God's timing and provision over and over.
All these extravagant extras that it is ridiculous that I own--an iPhone, a computer, a TV, a DVD player...all worthless junk in the long run, but I'm so thankful for them.
People like Brennan Manning who can't help but point to Jesus no matter what the subject.
The ever present Jesus.
The ever patient Jesus.
Theology of the Body.
Air conditioning and heat.
My Brother and His family.
All my in-laws.
Freedom for the captives.
Beauty for ashes.
Communion of the Saints.
My Husband's Accomplishments
Dave's forgiveness when I'm acting ugly.
My kids' forgiveness when I get mad.
The way Lucy gets so excited to see me EVERY time.
People praying for me and I don't even know it.
What about you??????
