Sometimes we need to feel GRATITUDE in order not to feel fears, sadness, grief, etc. We all have plenty to be grateful for.
Yesterday was my 28th wedding anniversary, though we only had 19 married years together……the grief hits at the oddest times, and this year was no exception.
Financial fears hit us all, sadness at things going on in our lives hits us all…maybe bad health, or the bad health of loved ones, etc ………BUT, who wants to sit and list sadnesses here at a blog? Not me!
GRATITUDE HELPS. To sit and make a list of the GOOD THINGS in our lives really does almost negate the sadnesses; it’s difficult to be sad when you’re remembering things to be grateful for (though it’s possible, believe me!).
Yesterday’s swearing in of Brett Kavanaugh was probably a good thing. I say ‘probably’ because it’s not over yet. If the House goes Left, they’re going to try to impeach him. If it does not, they’ll think of ways to make his and his family’s lives completely miserable. You know that, I know that. He will not have an easy road to hoe in the Supreme Court and my heart goes out to him and to our country because the lefties are totally out of their minds at this point. The only good thing about that is that I think Americans are FINALLY waking up to this.
Let’s try to be happily grateful that he did make the cut. Let’s hope he’s what our country needs. Let’s hope that it’s true that Trump’s bellicose ways have helped the Republicans to FINALLY speak out and stop being cowed by the hideous left. I think he’s really done a good job in that arena, even I’m almost able to listen to his events the last few nights, which is really saying something! Perhaps I’m getting used to it; perhaps that’s exactly what’s helping Conservatives SPEAK UP finally, like Lindsay Graham!?
“And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.” 1 Peter 5:20
Have a wonderful Sunday…….be grateful, pray for our country, pray for Brett Kavanaugh and his family.
