A Cure for the Doldrums of Winter

It's been a long winter. I don't really like winters anyway, but this one has been rough even for my friends who live down South, who aren't used to all the snow and cold they've had to endure this year. The days are shorter, it's hard to get out of bed in the mornings knowing the cold is going to hit you like a punch in the gut. And I don't know about you, but my entire body is tense and contracted against the frigid temps.

We certainly have reason to whine a little, but it won't do any good. What it will do is make us feel worse and be a burden to anybody we come in contact with.

So I have a better idea: Let's NOT COMPLAIN OR GRIPE OR WHINE about anything today. Let's think happy thoughts, count our blessings, look on the bright side, treat ourselves. And if there is a legitimate complaint or worry, take it to God!

8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Philippians 4:8
