I'm coming to realize that the opposite of a complaining heart is a grateful one. I have so much to be grateful for in my life...and honestly very little to legitimately complain about.
I wanted to share a link to a girl's blog I've been following (ok I'm stalking her). Her name is Katie (her boyfriend Ben is on the track team at Univ of FL), she's 21 years old and she bought a house in Uganda (where she lives with her 14 daughters) and started a ministry to orphans and the poorest Ugandan families. Her faith is remarkable and her love for her "neighbor" is inspiring. The blog is also a reality check for me. There is real, hard core, legitimate, seemingly unending suffering going on all around her and she gives her readers a glimpse of it....while be grateful and even cheerful (yet HONEST).
