Are you blessed?

I am beyond blessed! I have a beautiful and healthy family, God is using my hardships for His glory (eek!!!!) and God is the center of our home. We may make mistakes on a daily basis (apparently, that takes some people by surprise ;D), but we are covered by God's wonderful grace - oh, how we don't deserve it! I pray our boys find His grace when they reach the age of accountability (only God knows that time). What is there to complain about? When God is the center of our lives, we will find ourselves content in every situation. I can tell when I begin to fall out of the center of God's will when I become ungrateful and make complaints. It's a great way to self-check where we are spiritually. Where do you stand right now, spiritually speaking? 

Philippians 2:14 - 16 Do all things without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.
