I'm grumpy today. I'm trying my best to 'shake it off' but its still lingering. I guess I just got up on the wrong side of the bed today. Coffee hasn't cured it. Breakfast didn't help. A long hot shower was nice but here I sit, grumpy.

I haven't got anything to complain or grumble about. Its a beautiful sunny crisp morning. My son is napping. My dishes are already done. So why the scowl on my face? I don't even know if I want to be fully ungrumped. It feels good sitting here feeling grumpy. Isn't that a foolish thing? To ENJOY being grumpy? DO you ever feel like that?

There is so much joy to be had and I know it would feel BETTER to be joyful than content in my grumpiness so I'm going to find some. I'm paging thru the Psalms & Proverbs, trying to lighten my heart & soul.

I read "Make a JOYFUL shout to the Lord" in Psalm 100:1.

"my heart is GLAD, and my glory rejoices" in Psalm 16:9

"This is the day which the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be GLAD in it." Psalm 118:24

"May my meditation be sweet to Him; I will be GLAD in the Lord." Psalm 105:34

"A merry heart makes a CHEERFUL countenance." Prov 15:13


  1. Yep! I often feel "unsettled" - wishing I was in the middle of... something. I would rather be busy. I guess I feel vulnerable when I am in that place. Good advice to seek for words of wisdom in times like these.

  2. I have not had the best week at all. And it has taken all week to get myself up and going again. Just family problems. Sometimes families can be difficult. Maybe I'll post about it soon. All week it's been something. Finally God told me to pour my heart again to Him. It seems I've I ve been doing alot of pouring out my heart Lately to Him.

  3. wow Becky...it has been way too long...I will hookup to your blog again....blessings
