Chill

I am tired of criticizing. "Blah blah blah blah. Everybody sucks. Nothing is right. Christian radio this, Christian bookstore that, the Church this the Church that. Blah blah blah blah-didy blah ppthhhhhh." I get so tired of hearing my voice I could puke. "Me me me me me me everybody listen to me. I'm pissed about this, ticked about that. BLAH DIDDY BLAH BLAH BLAH. Jesus wasn't a rich White Protestant and wasn't a Republican... and he didn't drive a fancy car..."

No, I think it is time to stop my carping and soak in some beauty. At least for a day or two.

I think the next time I get tempted to start barking like a little Dishrag pooch about something I am going to go pick up my Bible and read a little bit of Job and remember that I could be sitting in a big pile of ashes covered in boils with a dead family instead of spending my time like Job's friends trying to tell everyone what they are doing wrong and why they should be more like me and think more like me and give me what I want. Awah.

Yeah, I've really got it bad. I have sooooo much to complain about.

Time to watch a movie, throw away my passy and be a little more thankful.

Who's with me??!!!!

I'm with you. Brody reminded me yesterday that no matter my circumstances...at least it's better than Hell.

With you all the way.

I'm doing my best not to be a complainer. I try to talk, in a civil discourse, with the aim of finding answers and not winning a point.

So, yeah, I'm wit' ya.

I think you are pretty darn good at that balance my friend. Pretty DARN good as a matter of fact.

Kat, I read that in a rush and missed the point. Thanks for prompting me to go back an reread!

Thank you, Seth. I try very hard to be constructive, not a grumbler or complainer. Not always easy, especially when its stuff that is closer to home.

Quitters! Come on! Suck it up and keep complaining!

Kidding... kidding! I'm kidding!

Sheesh.

I need a nap.

Perhaps your suggestion is why so many blogs I frequent are quiet these days.

Here is my answer:
I will quit complaining (for one day at least). So help me God.
