I want to shine, but I've been a bit dim!

"Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe..." Philippians 2:14-15

I am a complainer, particularly in the area of pregnancy symptoms. I don't want to be, but I am. Poor Kelly is often the one who has to hear my complaints as I try to keep face in front of the masses :) I was feeling extra whiny/complainy today and therefore a little on edge with a certain co-worker. My tongue got the best of me and afterwards I thought of the above verse and prayed...

"Lord, please help me to not be a butt-head."

It was all I could get out, thankfully He knows my heart.

I hear ya Nicole...I think I posted something about how I try so hard not to complain and try to remind myself that every ache, every discomfort is all of the good of the baby growing inside...but then the very next day I had probably the HARDEST day of my pregnancy yet! And keeping my mouth shut with a smile just wasn't an option! So be thankful you have Kelly to lean on...and God to forgive you when you get a little butt-head-ish! haha :) He understands!!
