Welcome! Mentoring women of faith in every season is what we are all about.
We are imperfect women spurred on by God’s perfect grace to share chatter
that matters in a noisy world.

Come join the discussion, sister!

“Let us consider how we may spur one another on…” Hebrews 10:24

A Day in the Life of Being Grateful

A Day in the Life of Being Grateful

6:00AM: It's soooo early. I must have been up at least five times last night with the baby.

7:30AM: We are running late and of course, traffic!

9:00AM: **grumble grumble** Why didn't he empty the dishwasher this morning? 

12:00PM: Hurry and feed them before they become violent (again)!

3:30PM: Is this day going to end?

3:35PM: But, seriously.

5:01PM: He's late! Everything is horrible.

7:30PM: Finally, peace and quiet... and laundry.

9:30PM: I have nothing bad to say about bedtime, except I wish it had been earlier.

What if it looked like this instead?

6:00AM: I am going to accomplish so much today. Look at the sun streaming in.

7:30AM: I am so glad the van is fixed.

9:00AM: **whistle whistle** Let's clean up this beautiful kitchen my husband poured his sweat into creating for me. 

12:00PM: You get a peanut butter and jelly! You get a peanut butter and jelly! Everyone gets a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!

3:30PM: Let's spend the afternoon at the park!

3:35PM: Or the zoo?

5:01PM: Quick! Let's clean up some stuff before Daddy gets home!

7:30PM: Look at these tiny socks. Have you ever seen such tiny socks!

9:30PM: Prayer time and bedtime!

It's kind of crazy how a little change in outlook can change an entire day, isn't it? Tell me I am not the only one who gets crabby and wallows in my own self pity every now and then (or maybe even more than that, but I won't admit it!)

November is all about thanksgiving and being thankful for all the things we have in our lives. I challenge you today to be more mindful of your thoughts.

Be grateful.

Be kind.

Be silly! 

Be contagious.

1 John 3:1: "How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!"

Rejoice in the Lord

When We Become Harsh And Prickly
