Grumbling and Gratitude

There are some things I try to avoid talking about here in this space...    no one wants to hear about the day-to-day challenges,  so I just try to avoid anything that sounds like complaining in this very public environment.     

Life is hard... in every corner of the world.   My life here is not harder than yours in the US.  

And yet, there are some things here that are uncomfortable, often, very uncomfortable;  this is reality.   

Rather than bore you with the details, I will simply ask you for your prayers.   This season is one where the lack of certain comforts has taken its toll on our lives, individually and collectively.   

Regardless how uncomfortable things get, I can quickly find examples of many whose lives are much, much more challenging than mine.   

This brings me to a thankful place once again... grateful for the little things like reading aloud with my kids, a butane stove that doesn't depend upon electricity,  a phone that allow me to text internationally for free when my phone is charged.   Grateful for the big things like 5 growing children, 5 projects moving forward, new missionaries coming to join us in 2014, a God who sees and knows and cares.

Lord, turn my grumbling and complaining into thanking and praising!
