Well… At least it\’s not blogger…..

Rambling thoughts on a Wednesday…..

Usually… I’d give my thoughts on American Idol today…. But I skipped it. I watched the Astros play 14 innings instead. From what I’ve read so far… I made the right choice. Sounds like the show was pretty lame last night…. I guess I’ll find out when I watch the much shorter version on the DVR later…. But I will make a guess anyway…. Bottom 3 – Paris, Elliot and (gasp) Kellie. Paris will go home…. Yay! It’s about time!

Anyway… So now what….? I don’t have a huge AI post… What to talk about on a Wednesday…?

Here’s a thought…

Earlier I was thinking about how so much could easily get me down…

My wife just had to have major surgery…
I have to go to work and leave her at the house alone…
Gas prices…
All kinds of political issues…
Money…

There are all kinds of things I could get worked up over and get depressed over or whatever….

But-

I’m not.
I’m thankful.
We were able to get my wife’s problems taken care of before they became too major. There was no cancer… it all went great actually. I’m thankful I have a job to go to. I’m even a little bit thankful for gas prices… All the activity in the oil industry has my company hopping.

All in all- I step back and look at all the little (or major) things that once would have shattered my world and realize that I am so blessed. God is good.

So I’m happy. More often than not I’m happy. It’s very cool… I find myself happy even when I don’t think I should be… When things crash down around me and try to drag me down with them… It doesn’t get me down anymore.

Is that growth? Maybe….

I know that God won’t give me anything more than I can handle… I know He’s got my back no matter what… So… I choose to enjoy what life puts in front of me.

Thank you Lord!
