Patience….. not patients

Posted by on Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

I was having a particularly bad day yesterday (if you didn’t notice by my post). I was definitely out of patience with so many things in my life. I went to bed very sad and discouraged. I slept poorly – which almost never happens to me.

This morning, the first thing I saw when I went to Pinterest was this:

Wow.

If that wasn’t a swift kick in the pants, I don’t know what is.

I spent today reflecting on the things that upset me yesterday…. what my role had been in those situations, how I could have responded differently to diffuse the situation, and why I let those stinky things bother me to begin with.

Ultimately, I don’t have a justifiable answer.

I am human. I react when something hurts me – usually by venting on my blog. Or by talking with Mr. Lucky. Or to a close friend.

But….. the Lord has truly been patient with me over the years. I need to remember that, huh?
