Dearest Wednesday, why do you hate me? Whew, this was one of those momma bear days when I wish I could unleash on those that hurt my family. Second Wednesday to sit in my car and cry about one of my children and their hurt feelings.
Don't I sound tough? Well, I'm not. I'm working very hard on being a godly woman. At all times. Constantly working!! Minute by minute sometimes!! Especially when I would rather unleash all my hurt on someone who may or may not deserve it.
Today I chose to think before I spoke. And since my emotions were so very raw from the hurt, I chose not to speak at all. I will speak to the person but not until I can think and respond gracefully.
My emotions are not dictators of who I am. (learning and repeating this a lot today).
So today when I picked my beautiful boy up from school, I hugged him and looked right in his eyes and reminded him of the blessing we say every morning in the car on the war to school. Specifically, "the Lord turn his face toward you an give you peace". I reminded both of us that we need to turn our face to our creator who is looking at us and who loves us so deeply, then receive his peace.
...and then we went to get ice cream!!
(homework time...no tears! Amazing!)
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.
Blessings and Peace in spite of ungluings!!
