“We were given a vacation to Yellowstone, but he preferred go to the beach.”
I overheard this conversation while I was standing in line at the grocery store. She won a drawing for a free vacation prize to Yellowstone National Park, but wasn’t really happy it.
She said “every time we saw something awesome, he brought up the fact that he had wanted to go to the beach.” It was really hard to enjoy at all.
Sometimes I notice myself doing this grumbling too. God has given me an awesome number of blessings, but rather frequently I manage to focus on something that isn’t quite as perfect as I want it to be.
How much more happy would I be if I actually paid attention to the many many blessing Jesus has already given me?
Then it would be a great day!
