Grateful Grid, Grumbling Grid

I feel especially blessed for being brought up in a home where being grateful, even awed with life, was not uncommon! Words of affirmation and encouragement were readily spoken. To turn that same kind of response towards God just makes a lot of sense to me.
The thought that captured me today was that when we grumble we are "casually despising (God's) sovereignty." That "a grateful attitude becomes a grid through which (we) perceive life." (88) How distorted our perspective can be when we choose the grumbling gird rather than the grateful grid to interpret life!
Even more grateful...dmc
