Sunny-Side Up Day

Spring has arrived in Las Vegas. It's forecast to be a warm 80 degrees with no winds. A perfect day!

However, I feel like staying under the covers and going back to sleep. My attitude toward the feels heavy and cloudy. Bad news burst through my door yesterday and decided to spend the night. Now it feels as if a depression may take its vacation in my bedroom.

But again, it's a choice. It's all about attitude and how I have the ability to take control of my thoughts and actions. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. (Romans12:2a NIV)

So, because I serve the risen Christ, I will, by choice, make this a sunny-side up day instead of cloudy gloomy day of depression. I choose a sunny-side up day because, "He is risen, indeed!"

Sweet friend, I will pray that you have a "Son-shine" filled day and that choosing the right attitude will come with ease.
Blessings!

How fitting that I did not read your post until today because a cloud was hovering over me this morning blocking the sunshine all around. I began to think about how I needed to change my focus and attitude. Thanks for your words.

Whose voice do we listen to? Praying you hear His voice in spite of circumstances.

Hi Susanne,
I could use your help. If you have a few minutes, I would love your input on my blog in regards to the ten struggles that Christian women face. Thank you!

I appreciate what you say here, and also on your devotional on Christianity.com on April 8, 2008. I am struggling with some difficult things, but what you wrote:

“When they walk through the Valley of Weeping, it will become a place of refreshing springs, where pools of blessing collect after the rains!” Psalm 84:6 (NLT)

"Dear Lord, life is hard sometimes. Walk me through the Valley of Weeping. Keep my heart focused on You and the blessings You provide. Open my eyes to the pools of blessing that You supply. In Jesus’ Name, Amen."

What I needed to hear, and reminded me to count my blessings, concentrate more on the good things, and less on what is going wrong. - And I will keep building on what is going good. My daughter is the most awesome blessing :)

Thanks, again,
Angie
