I want to share with you all a short story.  Trying to stay upbeat and positive – today was just not the day for me.  I was having a really stressful time at work.  I am currently learning a new desk and starting tomorrow, I will be on it by myself for the next few weeks.  By the middle of the day, I found myself extremely overwhelmed with the amount of work, the rate at which it was coming to me, and having to cram new information down last minute that I will need to know to do the job efficiently.  I complained to a couple of people, while another handful voiced a change in my demeanor.  With that, I quickly grabbed my purse and headed out the door, looking to clear my head completely during lunch.

During my break, I logged into Facebook.  The very first thing that I saw was a post from an old high-school classmate.  She spoke about how she was initially going to post a complaint, but instead would give God thanks.  What she shared immediately made me think of how I was feeling all that morning while on the clock, and what my mind should actually be focused on instead.  She said in part:

But when I got on here & turned on The News & seen the People of Texas that Spirit of Complaining left Me Immediately! I Wanna say this instead, “Give Thanks Inspite of!”, “Give Thanks in The Mist of!”, “Praise HIM in Advance!”, “Know that HE WILL Make a Way out of No Way!” & That Nothing is More Important than to WAKE UP WITH YOUR LIFE!!!!! Everything Else Can Be Recovered but Once a Life is Loss it Can NOT! Amen!

When I read that status, I couldn’t help to feel touched, and I’ll admit, even a bit emotional. View Post
