It's Here in glorious B&W! 'Welcome to My Back Pew' A 115 page collection of BP cartoons is HERE
Don't mumble, don't grumble and ...
... stay out of the DARK lest ye STUMBLE!
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philipians 4:4-8
Not much more to be said on the subject. When these words describe me I am content no matter my circumstance. When I drift into negativity with mumbling and grumbling (each which I have discovered are NOT fruits of the Spirit) I tend to stumble.
So words of wisdom here.. DON'T STUMBLE, DON'T GRUMBLE, and DON'T MUMBLE in any order! Smile Mon trusting God and finding your joy in Him.

note: I live in a 2 story home, and once stepped out of my bedroom with a clothes basket full of dirty clothes stacked high, made an immediate right to go downstairs only to discover the top step was ALIVE! Well at least my dog baylie was laying on it covering it completely. I then proceeded to somehow slide down a flight of stairs bouncing on my heels from step to step (like a cartoon) and somehow when I reached the bottom MY NECK WAS NOT BROKEN. Well, I more than mumbled at Baylie all while she looked at me like "what was my problem". I am not sure why I shared this.. except it was EXTREME LITERAL STUMBLING followed by shouting, and the joy of the Lord was NOT with me.
