THE SCULPTOR'S ATTITUDEI woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight. I have responsibilities to fulfill today. I am important. My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or . . . I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or . . . I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.Today I can grumble about my health or . . . I can rejoice that I am alive.Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was growing up or . . . I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.Today I can cry because roses have thorns or . . . I can celebrate that thorns have roses.Today I can mourn my lack of friends or . . . I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.Today I can whine because I have to go to work or . . . I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.Today I can complain because I have to go to school or . . . eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or . . . I can feel honored because the Lord has provided shelter for my mind, body and soul.Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the Sculptor who gets to do the shaping. What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have!Have a GREAT DAY . . . unless you have other plans.
