Isn't it funny how when life is going really "well" we can let one experience "ruin" our day, our perspective? This is where I am. Don't ask me why I'm letting the negative outweigh the bad, but my attitude at home has been...well...less than pleasant the past week. I don't know if I can pinpoint the attitude on one thing, but I know it needs to change.
I'm been running a mile a minute lately and pushing the kids beyond their boundaries which makes everyone a bit on edge. I find myself yelling for no reason (really...if I stand back and think about it) and experiencing head aches I think honestly are from my own poor attitude.
This morning I got down on my knees and spent some time in the God's word to "realign" my attitude. I called out to him to soften my heart and to find joy in the daily duties of being a wife, mother, sister, friend, and co-worker. Knowing God was leading my reading, I was not surprised to find myself in Psalms.
I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Psalms 40:1-3
So in the midst of disciplining children, making lunches, getting ready for work...I am singing a new song...a song of praise for the day. The sun is shining. God is repairing my "grumpy" attitude. I will find the good in the day this day that the Lord has made.
