Look at them… Pure blessing, I know! But Man…. It’s been bad… Real bad around here.
I’ve completely lost it on these three sweethearts more than I want to admit in the last couple of days. I can’t possibly post all of those rosy pics without some reality on here.
They’re kids… They don’t get a thrill out of making me crazy. However, somehow when I’m in my fits, I tell myself this. Nuts-o! Once I get going, it’s hard for me to calm back down…but, when I see the look in their eyes, it breaks me! I apologize, and they are oh, so quick to forgive! Man, to have the heart of a child.
I’m teaching this to them, but i need it just as much!
“Let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger, for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” James 1:19
I’m SO dreadfully sinful! The last couple of days have shown me that in its truest form. I’m not patient, not kind, not loving, not gentle. Just plain wretched. My sin is so ugly.
Thankfully I don’t have to rely on myself for sufficient grace and forgiveness. Jesus sees every single minute of my pure craziness, and loves me just the same. Isn’t that refreshing!?! I think so!
So, if you ever find yourself in this funk, here a couple things that seem to help me:
1. Prayer, Prayer Prayer
2. Reading Scripture, any verses, just having my Bible open, wanting to hear from God.
3. Essential oils: diffused & dirctly to skin
4. Early bedtimes for everyone!
