This morning, I woke up grumpy. I’ve been under the weather, got up with a crick in my neck, and my sleep was very interrupted last night. I was stumbling around the house, looking for coffee and complaining to myself. All I could see was the discomfort, inconvenience, and labor that a morning with three little kids brings with it.
But all of a sudden, the Holy Spirit reminded me that these children, this home, this day, are all precious blessings from His Hand. I deserve none of them, but He gives them to me out of His great love for me, His daughter, and they are such wonderful gifts!
So instantly, the view changed! Instead of fuzzy drab complaints, I saw beautiful, colorful blessings, and day that stretched ahead, full of grace.
“Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of heavenly lights!”
~ James 1:17
