Entry 1-11

Now when my daughter gets a time-out, she huffs, "It's not fair!". Usually she's right, if I was fair, I would have disciplined her sooner.
So when I have that same attitude, I have to logically assume that my sense of being wronged is inflated at best, and that the root cause is ingratitude.
This is what I struggled with in my prayer time today. I didn't feel the peace until I was driving into work, and there was nothing else to credit but the inexplicable ability to rejoice in all circumstances that that obviously didn't come from my own efforts. I have to keep coming back to this over and over again.
