As I read Emily Dickinson’s Poem 376 and a passage about Ebenezer Scrooge from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, I admonished myself for being crabby this week. I suppose I could make excuses as thunder rumbles overhead again. But, I won’t. I will take a cue from Job, who had plenty of reasons to complain. I will seek to apply Paul’s advice to the Philippians. I will remember a gloomy forecast does not need to cloud my attitude.
Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky….
