"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Gabby Mom's June Review.

This month I was given two MP3 down loads from Eternal Encouragement to listen to, enjoy, ponder and then review here. I was thrilled, What better then to listen to messages, for us ladies, and I can do it while doing dishes, cuddling a baby to sleep or just enjoying a cup of tea!
While both were excellent and I gleaned off of each, one stood out to me.

The first one was called Keys to a Queenly Castle, while I enjoyed it, the other, Attitude Adjustments was prefect timing for me, so I will talk about it here.
These last two weeks have been rather crazy at our place, and having JUST listened to this message I got to practice some of the A-Z tips for helping me chose and keep a cheerful, good attitude, even in bad traffic, missing music lessons, etc.
At the begining of the message Mrs. Flem talked about how attitudes are like germs. We are always spreading them. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Satan would like nothing better for us, the wives/mother of our families to spread a bad/nasty attitude. She went on to Philippians 2:1-5 which says what God wants from us: 
Php 2:1  If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
Php 2:2  Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
Php 2:3  Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Php 2:4  Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
Php 2:5  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Php 2:6  Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Php 2:7  But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
Php 2:8  And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
The Lord wants us to have an attitude like Christ has. Compassionate and spreading joy and hope!

She then went on to give 26 (A-Z) tips to help us ladies to keep a good attitude, and what do do when a bad one shows up. Here are my favorite ones:

A) Act Happy: smiling, laughing etc makes it very hard to get crabby!
C) Count your blessings! 
E) Every Morning, set your town. This is the Day which the Lord has make. I will REJOICE and be glad in it!
N) Negative vs positive. Thoughts and questions and impact our mood. Instead of thinking about the negative have having a pile of laundry the size of a mountain, be thankful you have children to help make your day sparkle and shine!
O) Other's First. By putting away those thoughts of "woe is me" and we think of others, we will get joy from serving!
P) Prayer, probably the most important one!
W) Wiggle it. Get out and take a brisk 15 minute walk to clear your head and get your heart going!
Z) ZZZZzzzzz...make sure you are getting plenty of rest! 
I am going to type these out on pretty paper, and post them in places I will see them often for reminders! I LOVED this message, and it really can pertain to anyone!
