This darling little 7 yr old boy is my 3rd child. I wish you could all meet him. I wish you could see his spirit. I wish you could see his beautiful, kind heart. I wish you could see his attitude.
Ya see...the Lord gave us this 3rd child after many, many long months of trying and then finally the good news came one March morning back in 2000. I cried. I cried some more. And, then I got sick as a dog for nearly 1/2 the pregnancy. We were convinced.....actually my husband was convinced....that this baby would be a girl. I had not been sick with the other 2 boys.
But, deep within my hearts desire, I secretly wanted another boy. Call me crazy. But....this guy came into the world laughing and smiling and has never stopped. He is the greatest kid alive! :)
His attitude, 99.9% of the time, is joyful, fun, easy going, happy, plays well with others, not bossy, laughs alot, enjoys the little things throughout the day, and LOVES to be played with, wrestled with, hugged on, kissed on and simply just "enjoy life" as much as he can.
This child of mine teaches me alot about attitude.
Philippians 2:5 says, "Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus."
I've got an area in my life where I need a serious attitude adjustment. Any time something remotely odd, difficult, bad, or annoying happens in this area of my life.....I get on a big ole bandwagon that is not pretty. It may just be something that I wrestle with in my own mind and heart or I may share imy difficulties in confidence with a dear friend. But, this area of my life needs a BIG TIME ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT!
I want to be filled with the Spirit of Christ in all things....don't you??
We are empowered with the Holy Spirit within us, so why don't we act like it?? If something is heavy in your heart, difficult to deal with, or you simply want to see some things get done.....then in the Name of Jesus....and filled with His Mighty Power......CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE and possibly even make the situation better!!
This is all about me on this one. I want an attitude of Christ. I want to be more childlike....just like that darling boy above. I hope he never outgrows these fine qualities that God gave him.
Have a great day! And, be filled with the Spirit! There are no bad attitudes there!
Hugs and blessings~
