Today, I Choose...

Today, I want to be an encourager
and not need to be encouraged.

Today, I am not going to be a sponge.
Soaking up every negative thought that passes my mind.

Today, I am going to try so very hard not to be critical of my boys and instead soak in their sweetness.

Today, I'd like to take a few minutes to write a
note to a sweet friend.

Today, I'd love to have an endless amount of patience
instead of running out of it before breakfast begins.

Today, I am going to be 'present' in everything I do.

Today, I am going to get into the Word 
instead of saying, "I will do it' and then never doing it.

Today, I am going to be less critical of myself.

Today, I am going to rejoice in others accomplishments
instead of letting jealousy creep in.

Tuesday, I hope your ready, I'm coming for you,
because today I'm choosing to rejoice.

  1. Thanks you so much our for your thoughts. I have those same thoughts on a daily basis and its good to know I'm not the only mom with them. My biggest challenge is not focusing on the daily blessing my boys are, but instead focusing on the messy rooms, loud sword fights, how many times they let their little brother get on the top bunk, and how often I heard them say they hate each other in a 24 hr. period. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love these thoughts! I need to work on them too.

  3. What a great and important post my dear!
