In trying to get our own way, we should remember that kisses are sweeter than whine.
September 20 - too blessed to complain
If you have time to whine and complain about something then you have the time to do something about it.
Anthony J. D'Angelo
We all know what it’s like to get caught up in unnecessary complaining. It can happen to the best of us. What starts off as an innocent venting of frustration, if not checked, can turn into impatience or anger. Then, criticism, gossip, or unkindness comes slithering in. Before you know it, we find ourselves in a predicament we don’t quite know how to fix.
I recently saw a bumper sticker on a car going down the road that gently challenged my heart about the way I feel about my life. The sticker simply said, Too blessed to complain.
Too often I find myself lamenting moments in life that don’t go my way, rather than focusing on the wonderful gifts I’ve been given. God really has been good to me in more ways than I could ever count and that bumper sticker reminded me of what I should already know…counting your blessings makes you realize just how blessed you are and I would have to agree…I am too blessed to complain.
We don’t need more to be thankful for, we just need to be more thankful.
