I Will NOT Fail Bible Study

Because of my new bible study - the one where I'm going to learn how to change my attitude and become a positive, grateful person - I'm not going to complain that my car's a piece of crap needing $3,000 worth of repair. Instead, I'm going to be thankful that I've been blessed with finally paying off my car. Two months ago.

Instead of panicking that we don't have extra money laying around for such necessary repairs (how important can one head gasket actually be?) I'm going to be thankful that we paid off the last of the credit card debt. Last month.

Instead of worrying about how on God's green earth I'm going to get each of the three children and myself where we need to be while my car is sitting in some mechanic's garage I'm going to be happy that Big V doesn't have any employment lined up these next few days so he'll be home and able to assist.

And obviously, I'm not going to worry about the fact that without jobs lined up Big V will not actually get paid any money to put forth towards said mechanical repairs. Instead, I'm going to be thankful that I have an uncorked Riesling and a bag of Cheetos hidden in the pantry.

I will not fail bible study.

Perhaps Big V could pimp himself as a manny....
Or maybe it is simply time for us to co-write that damned book.... you think I am joking. I'm not.

Ugh! What a lot of things to happen at once!

I really liked this post. What a nice way to reframe what could be a really stressful situation. It will all work out, because it has to (or at least that's what I tell myself.)
