Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation. “Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. - Philippians 2:14-15

Dear Jesus, you lived 33 years and never once did you grumble.  I am not sure I can go 33 minutes without grumbling to myself.  I am grateful that your life covers mine.  But I see what you are saying.  When I live out my days cheerfully, then I shine in front of a world darkened by selfish grumbling. I want the music of my life to match the words I hold out to them.  Come by your Holy Spirit and exchange my poor pitiful grumbling with your cheerful, faith filled joy.  Make my life a blessing to those who need to be cheered up today. AMEN

"Anyone can grumble in the face of adversity.  Keeping a cheerful spirit is the real accomplishment."
