project31 - day 9

9. What virtues do you value in yourself?

Hmmm...well according to Wikipedia: A virtue is a trait or quality deemed to be morally excellent and thus is valued as a foundation of principle and good moral being.

SO...I guess for my sake of better understanding, I could re-phrase the question to read: What morally excellent traits or qualities do I value in myself?

I love to listen to people who are willing to share...and I listen with my whole heart. Sometimes to a fault though...because I get attached to people too easily!

If people are willing to listen to me, I would love to share with them this incredible thing God has brought us through, and is continuing to bring us through. To be able to share the wonders of our loving and faithful Father is something I cherish!

God's truths (some more than others) have been revealed to me recently in a way that really helps me...so I love to encourage others with those truths if a situation presents itself.

It's gotta be "morally excellent" to be able to laugh at yourself...NO?! Well, that's something I'm good at!

My "yes" is my "yes" and my "no" is my "no"...or at least that is something I am striving toward!

God calls us to a life of abundance. Not one where we mope around dwelling on our hardships...because we all have them! So, in order to live a life worthy of His calling I have claimed this year to be one faced with "expectant JOY!" ...expecting good things where I go, of the people I am with, in the situations I find myself.

Choose JOY!
