It has been a long time since Mommy 'roared' but I still remember the emotion and sense of frustration that precipitated it. Today that emotion and frustration reared it's ugly head, and although I did not roar, I did have my 'moment.' It was the first day following a wonderful visit from Jeff's family pastor and his wife. (We miss you Brad and Kathy!) Needless to say, it was a tough transition day.
In the middle of it all, I was reminded of a sweet publication my best friend had sent me just days before. She typed it up following a Mommy 'moment' of her own, and I'm grateful that she was willing to share it with me. Now I'd like to share it with you.
Because of God's love, I can choose to be LOVING
(1 Peter 1:22)
Because of God's gentleness and patience with me, I can choose to be PATIENT
Because of God's mercy, I can choose to be MERCIFUL
Because Jesus brings me peace, I can be PEACEFUL
Because of the great joy of my salvation, I can choose to be JOYFUL
(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
Through Christ, I can be QUICK to listen, SLOW to speak, and SLOW to become angry
I can do ALL THINGS through Christ's strength in me!
May God bless you as you do all the things He's called you to do, through Christ's strength in you!
In His Loving Arms,
