Truth! You can't handle the truth! (or perhaps I can't)...

I recently had a friend use the term "sit in a pile of self pity". I realized tonight, while trying to go to sleep, that I often do this. And what for? Perhaps I feel sorry for the fact that I have a wonderful husband who loves and provides for me, or maybe it is because of the nice house we live in, perhaps the fact that I have a job, a loving family (both mine and Justin's), a car, clothes on my back and food on the table (well TV tray in my case)! I could go on and on. So really why do I often find myself sitting in a big pile of pity? Well I decided tonight that I will no longer! I vow that from now on when I begin to look for this pile of pity (because I know it is not something given to me), I will remind myself of the many blessings that God has given me. If I continue down what can only be called the road of unthankfulness, I will then get on my knees and ask for God's intervention. He is the only way out.
