Well, God & I had a little talk the other day after my Temper Tantrum
What he heard was whine, whine, whine with some verbal foot stomping…like a tired toddler on a sugar high & no nap.
What I heard when I took the time to listen was ….well, you ungrateful Brat! In a hands on hips voice. You know, the parent that has heard enough tone?
I gave you a home….when many have lost theirs..Take care of it
Those children, you were fussing to me about.. you mean the little-ones you were blessed with? Prayed for, prayed over? Begged for my help to save when one nearly came home to me? Be grateful, you still have them on earth to enjoy. Many do not and seek comfort.
My creatures great and small? When your not whining they bring you great comfort, companionship & Joy…want me to take them back?
So, lets see …Yes the harvest. Did you not come to me saying you were changing things, making wiser choices with your money, taking better care of your body…did you not come to me asking for blessings on your garden? Let it be fruitful? You said you were willing to do the work…did you change your mind? There are a lot of hungry & out of work people out there…….
Oh, and the mice? They’re just to let you know I do have a since of humor.
Do you want to rethink a few things before we talk again?
Um……I uh, sure. I have a lot to think about & I know your a busy Guy so….Um,
So today, while counting my blessings ….the carrots are in the canner, tomato sauce is bubbling waiting for its turn, birds are fed & watered & cages cleaned & bird seed swept up, washer is running, the remainder of the mess from the bag of cookies that I left out & the dog ate & left all over the kitchen floor is cleaned up, cleaning the laundry room out so I can set the shelves to move the canned goods down stairs so I can clear the counter to clean out the cabinets…….because I am so very Blessed!
