Lately, it seems that I do not need to do “train of thought” journaling. I want to write and connect in moments like these like, “Gosh, I’m so tired.” or “I’m missing friends.”
But, these have no place in my heart.
Instead, I need to say, “Lord, thank you for this family time…I love these people, help me connect with them better.”
“I thank you that I will sleep GOOD tonight, my dear Lord…you’ve given me a productive day.”
I’m not there yet, but I have a goal. I want to live in the moment and not be living in negativity. I want what the Lord has for me right now and not miss it with my whining.
We have adopted a new family verse for these season…actually, I’ve been working on the latter part of it and realize it starts with the first, “Do everything without arguing, grumbling, or complaining…” A tall order, but a place I hope to move us toward. My family…with five of us venting? Yeah, it’s too much. We all need to learn to clean the air space to keep so many times from getting toxic, and…as usual, it starts with me.
