a brighter day


so...admittedly....i've been a bit down lately. things have been a little stressful for the sossaman's. and not a lot has changed....other then my perspective. what i lost site of is that god is good to me and my family. i've gotten consumed with "doing and being" and less aware of the truth of god that i tell other people when i try and encourage them. drowning in my own deal. but that's changing today.

i choose to have a brighter outlook. i choose to be half full. i choose to take my thoughts and worries and concerns captive...and then hand them off.

it starts today...

Who is philippine lotto? WOW!
Jeramy I like that you spell your whole blog entry in lower case letters but can you atleast give God the BIG 'G'? Just a little request... (-: You know we always refer to the other gods as 'little "g" gods', so when you refer to God, He should get caps all the way! (just my opinion, you might care less...) It brings me joy that you have chosen to look at your situation in a better way!

Another post I can really relate too! It seems to me that some people just naturally look on the bright side and some others (like myself) have to work at it a bit harder. I've been in the same place lately, just trying to count my blessings, name them one by one... count my blessings see what God has done....

Think I been spending to much time on Steve's blog?????

WOW! I was just going to ask you if I can say ANYTHING in your comments section. I blasted P.L.'s comment last night and then thought maybe I couldn't do that. I was really irritated. But for the record... you're blog is PERFECT the way it is. And it IS something that LOTS of people can relate to. (Thanks Nat for bringing that up --- I was floored)

I'm sorry you've had a tough week. Lord knows I can relate to being discouraged. But I'm glad that you're gonna be half full again. (even though we still love you when you're half empty)

And Cheryl - you can NEVER spend too much time on Steve's blog.
