As I was sorting the weekly laundry this morning, I grimaced as I saw that there was not one, but TWO loads of hubby's work clothes. He has been doing some extra work, for a neighbor this past week, and the extra load was evidence of it. Yuck.
Almost right away, I felt a catch in my spirit. "At least you have a husband who works hard." I felt ashamed of my disgruntled thoughts, and immediately thanked God for the blessing of my husband. He works hard, in the hot sun all day; then was willing to help a neighbor in need. Are there things I would like to change about him? LOL! Yes!! But I'm positive there are things about ME that he would be glad to 'modify', also!! When I come to the crossroad, I have to redirect my thoughts when they start to go down Grumble Street. I need to pull them over to Gratitude Ave., to let them bask in the gifts that I have been given. Do I like to do smelly laundry? Not exactly...but I DO have clothes that are clean afterward! It's all in my perspective.
Do you ever come up to the crossroad? Make a wise choice as to which road you will go down!
