Not Going to Complain

I'm not going to complain about the now almost 4 feet of snow in my front yard, or what the electric or water bill will be this month (at least I'm almost caught up on my laundry), or how much weight I'm gaining because I keep snacking because I'm bored or the fact that they didn't even plow our road from the last snow storm.....because at least...

We have electricity in our house to keep us warm.

We have clean water to drink and bathe in.

We have plenty of food so we are not hungry.

We actually have a paved road on which to travel.

How many people don't have any of those things...how many children will go hungry today...or be cold or have fresh water to drink... I will be grateful for the blessings he has provided for us today.

.....I will forget my complaint, I will change my expression, and smile...Job 9:27

Thanks Liz for reminding me.
