I was recently given a book by my dearest friend and sister Courtney's Mama because I had commented about how someone told me that Debi Pearl's book made it sound like a woman is to be a doormat. Well, I have been reading it and I can understand why my friend might come to that conclusion but I don't believe that's what Mrs. Pearl meant for it to sound like. I like the book and have had others recommend it to me before(And they aren't door mats). I had been reading on where she mentions being thankful and learning to thank God for things and even when we are down in the dumps. What was interesting is when my Dad preached on the difference of David and his son Solomon. David thanked God alot. Just look at the book of Psalms. After God gave Solomon wisdom and more he didn't even thank God for it. My Pa also mentioned about thanking God even for the little things and when we are down in the dumps. When ya start thanking God it's hard to not smile after awhile if you weren't already smiling. I am thankful for that sermon and thankful that I have the opportunity to read this book. I might not agree on a couple things but overall I would recommend this book. Alot of times it's easy to not thank God and well sometimes it's really laziness or pride but God deserves our thanks for we really do not deserve anything at all even the walls on our house or a roof over our head. In the Bible we were only promised food and rainment( might of spelled that wrong).
Those are my thoughts for today. Hope everyone enjoys their day:)
Hoping and trusting in my Lord & Saviour,
