A New Attitude.....

I want to share a scripture a friend posted on Facebook this morning.....

Whatever we do or say should be permeated with an attitude of joy, thankfulness to God, and encouragement of others. Instead of whining and complaining, we are to focus on the goodness of God and His mercies toward us.   Ephesians 5:18

For some reason, this one really jumped out at me today.   Hmmmm.......wonder why?

Probably because I've been pretty busy this past few weeks - nursing Ed after his surgery, keeping things picked up at the house, gaining momentum at work, and all of Life's other activities. I feel like I'm burning the candle at both ends when I finally crash in bed late at night.  And, sometimes when I feel tired or overwhelmed, I tend to forget this powerful exhortation.

Time for an "Attitude Adjustment", Jane!  

Many thanks to long-time friend, Valerie, for sharing this today - just when I needed it most!  Now, I'm just passing the Word along - in case you needed to hear it today, too. 


  1. I don't think you need an attitude adjustment as much as you need a rest. Hope things start to calm down for you soon and that you are able to catch you breath. Can't imagine you ever trying to be anything but positive. Hugs from Ontario!
