Ever complain about all the toys in the yard?
The other night I was about to when I tripped over one of them. Something made me stop and realize though, at how happy it made me to see them strewn around.
I realized that I could have had a clutter free lawn and a clean, but a lonely house. I realized that this clutter I was complaining about is really a blessing.
A few years ago I was just praying for God to take away that ache for a child since He obviously didn’t want me to be a mom. At that time I would have given anything to be tripping over toys and sweeping up crumbs every day.
Now I am and whenever I start to complain, I hope God will continue to gently remind me of the blessings He has bestowed upon me and the loneliness He has taken away.
