Thoughts Running Through My Head...

So, it has been a while since I have blogged.  I use blogging as a way to process things in life and also put into words what I think God is teaching me.  However, most of the time I am careful what I share.  Today though, I want to share all the thoughts that are going on in my head.  This is a busy time of year with the holidays, my son's birthday, yucky weather and then throw in there the ups and downs of life and it can be interesting. 

Negative Thoughts:
1.   If I don't work out, I will get fat (I wish this thought had never appeared)
2.   Why do I not have very many close girlfriends that I feel I can share most anything 
      with?
3.   Why are so many people not committed to things in life and why are we all so busy?
4.   Our house sure needs cleaning, but boy do I not feel like doing it
5.   Am I spending enough time with my son?
6.   Should I feel bad that I do not know a whole bunch of things to do with my son?
7.   I am trying to eat less sugar but why do I keep craving sweets?
8.   Why are we having such a hard time having children?  Can't we figure out the
      solution to make my body get fixed without much effort?
9.   Can we move somewhere else?  I really don't like winter.  I need sunshine! 
10. Every where I turn there is something that is bad for us...how do you decide what is
      best?

Positive Thoughts:
1.  I am so thankful for Matt and our son.  They are huge blessings in my life.
2.  I love having family live close to us.
3.  I am very thankful to live in a small town with a bigger city close by.
4.  I love Christmas!  God made me a giver and I also love to receive gifts. 
5.  We have a great church family and body of believers we are apart of. 
6.  Matt and I are both so blessed to have great jobs that provide so much more
     than we need so we can give to others!

As you can see, I have far more negative thoughts running through my brain than positive.  So...I sure am thankful for the grace that God gives us through his son Jesus' death and resurrection on the cross.  He gives us a fresh start each new day and the Bible to refocus us on His goodness and love.  Without this, I would not have the hope in this life that I do.  Praying you can find some HOPE this time of year and always!
