Pouty Lip

Meet Lydia's pouty lip:
This cracks me up for a couple of reasons - first, because Lydia looks so darn cute sporting a pouty lip and second, really, what does she have to be pouty about???  But really, what do I have to be pouty about???  Yet, how many times do I catch myself (or does someone else catch me, ahem, my husband) pouting or complaining needlessly?  Too often, way too often. 

God clearly commands us that we ought not complain -

"Do everything without complaining or arguing."  Philippians 2:14

Ouch!  I'm so guilty of this ... praying that I can refocus my complaints into praises of gratitude for the abundance of blessings that we have been given.

So true! I am guilty of the same. :(

That is one of the verses we had the kids memorize. Unfortunately it doesn't have the "magic" of transforming their hearts in an instant.

Just wait and see how often Lydia uses that pouty lip as gets older. Little girls seem to sport that look way too often! But yes, she does look adorable!
