G is for Grumpy!

It’s time for the letter G and time for me to remind myself not to be grumpy and not to grumble. Head on over to Miss Jenny’s to join in with Alphabe-Thursday.

John 6:43 ~  ”Stop grumbling among yourselves,” Jesus answered.

I Corinthians 10:10 ~ “And do not grumble, as some of them did – and were killed by the destroying angel.”

James 5:9 ~ “Don’t grumble against each other brothers, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door.”

I Peter 4:9 ~ “Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.”

Maybe I’ll think ahead to next week and the letter H and be inspired by another Dwarf…Happy! Since we are still on G this week I’m going to concentrate on being grateful instead of grumpy.

  1. G is for grateful…and I’m sticking to it! Thanks for th reminder this morning. G is also for get-up-an-go, and we got-up-and-went to the city…for a change of pace. Have a great day!

  2. I’m not much of a grumbler actually. It would be better if I were. A grumbler has those low tones all rumbly and masculine. Shriek would fit better for me. Ackkkkkkk! See, told ya!

  3. Murmur, mutter, roar and rumble
    carp, complain, and moan and whine,
    None of these will help our spirit!
    To be joyful, just hold still – let God refine!

    So, my heart learn to be grateful,
    thankful, pleasant and content
    for He does withhold what we deserve,
    has instead amazing grace and mercy sent!

    See, your post made me write that little ditty! Great reminder!!

  4. I think grumpy is cute…so long as I’m not wearing it on my face…heehee. Grumpy and grateful are mutually exclusive…they can’t coexist. 🙂

  5. Love the Grumpy figurine! Looks like it is a Jim Shore design. I try not to be grumpy as well. I actually have a cousin who got laid/fired for being too grumpy! He is okay with it though. But it would be a lesson to learn to not be grumpy on the job!


  6. Some times I so feel like grumpiness walking. The verses you mentioned are good for my heart. I don’t want grumbling to be what resonates from me, but gratefulness (as others have said) and hospitality. Great post.
