It's Official ...

I am not going to complain about living in the camper any more. Nope. Not gonna do it. When it comes right down to it, I am extremely thankful for shelter and a place to get out of the weather.

This morning, John was out working in the very cold and windy weather - on the house. I felt bad that he was outside in the cold (while I was inside in the warm). Not so bad that I wanted to join him ... but I did feel bad just the same.

Then, he came in and asked me to help him! Yikes! Big dilemma for me - yes, I want a house and out of this camper, but no - I don't want to work in the very cold. Hmmmm, tough decision, but I decided I should bundle up and go and help him.

So, honey, I'm thinking if I stop complaining, we can stay in where it's warm and wait for the ice to melt!!! :)

Oh, and by the way, THANK YOU for working so hard - both on the house and at the prison sharing Christ with the hearts of the brokenhearted. You da best!

Phillipans 2:14-16 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 as you hold out the word of life


  1. What a scripture to bring us to our knees!!!! In everything give praise.

  2. It is so hard NOT to complain sometimes. That's a great verse....remember back in college how we vowed not to complain for one day? That was actually kind of fun...challenging and funny at the same day.

    Thanks for the reminder... :)

  3. Wow, I just finished complaining that no one helped me carry the groceries in or put them away. Such a small thing to be negative about. I guess it's time to go apologize to a couple of people I love and appreciate.

    Thanks for the good word!

  4. I loved this..,

    I have just been feeling guilty about inwardly complaining about our house and wanting to move, yet the market is not prime for doing so...I so don't want to have a complaining heart!
