Well, if you’re grumpy, you’ve come to the right place. Forget trying to stay upbeat! postive! empowered! Come with me and wallow in self-pity. It is a great place if you like sweatpants, stomach aches from too much ice-cream, and lethargy.
Last night Will was complaining about having to go to school for the 1, 986, 458th time, and I suggested he remember the verse about not arguing or complaining.
“Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life …” –Philippians 2:14-16a
My angel baby husband then suggested, that I, too, could stand to remember that verse. Well! I bit my tongue, but let me tell you, I was mentally making a list of some Scripture that he would do well to incorporate into his life! This little exchange took the whole “spiritual battle” concept to a completely different level for me! But, he does have a point. I’m quite the whiner. Anyway, I think we’re supposed to battle evil, not our husbands. Sometimes I get the two confused.
So where was I? Oh, that’s right, making a list of top 5 things I hate. That’s not complaining, is it? Alright, it is, I guess. Well, now I don’t have a blog entry. Here’s some things I love instead:
1. Jack waving to me in the bleachers while he’s supposed to be playing basketball.
2. Cardinals at the bird feeder.
3. Apples and pumpkins!
4. College football.
5. Fuzzy blankets.
