This is the second time this week I began a frustrated venting post crabbing about my day and then didn’t have time to finish. When I came back to publish it, it just seems irrelevant because I got over myself since writing it! So today, I’ll just write a non-whining post for a change.
I’m a little relieved from the stresses of the week. Had a few routine things turn urgent. Waiting on repairmen, being late getting Maddie to school, kid training. I decided to pray differently and ask for a change in me, not my circumstances. Maybe its my cynic side that says if I pray for a change in my circumstances like selling the townhouse TODAY and having the repairman come on time, and it doesn’t happen that way, then I’ll get ticked. So I prayed for the capacity to deal with things with a happy heart(a la Madame Blueberry) or at the least to just deal with them. My day was a LOT more peaceful. And most of the stuff turned out fine anyway. Hmm. Could it be the passage in Phil 4 about being anxious for nothing, presenting my requests to God humbly and with gratitude which gives mind boggling peace that guards your heart is actually TRUE?!
Nah. I’m sure I just got up on the right side of the bed. Or maybe it was the coffee. 😉
