Keeping my mouth shut……

So,I am one to vent my frustrations to my family and close friends to both vent, see if my response was justified and to feel vindicated, but this is not the way to go about it. For one thing, it gives the person listening negative feelings toward the one your complaining about, which they will have to deal with, and second, tarnish they reputation, and the main reason, is it is unGodly. So, my selfishness to vent is adding to the frustration of my family and close friends and is separating me from God. Wow….putting it that way is eye opening. Monday, I received a call and email from two people that can push my button faster than anyone. I was so angry Monday evening that I called my dearest friend and sister who were both unavailable which was a God thing, I believe because it is like Joyce Meyer says go to the throne not the phone. So, what did I do, I went to the phone, and God said, nope not this time. So, when no one answered and I knew better than to reply to the email in angry, and journaled to God my frustrations, but I still did not feel better just empty. I still did not have peace about it, and then my friend returned my call, I let her about talk about her evening while waiting for my chance to jump in about why I had called. As my mouth was running over the story, God was talking to my heart saying I believe you know better, and I was like I just want to feel vindicated and my friend will vindicate me. Now, in hindsight, I should have just put it in God’s hands and been patient because God will give my vindication. So, today, I begged God to give me the strength to keep my mouth shut and to respond to the emails and call with the facts needed and nothing else.

I do not want to have a small mind for God, but a great mind for God.

Thoughfulness for friends

It has been a rough few days as my munchkin and I have been butting heads and Tuesday night was a dozily.  First, I put the munchkins to bed early because we were all tired, however, they did not go to sleep but into my craft closet.  Normally, I can hear them moving around upstairs, however, Tuesday night, I only heard some light footsteps.  So, I headed up the stairs to hear the youngest say, “Oh, its Mommy, we better go hide.” My first thought was great they are up playing, second was which wall did they color on this time, but to my horror they were not playing or drawing on the wall but painting the floor, each other, all my craft supplies, the wall, and part of the bathroom.  I was furious, and yes, I spanked them which the oldest promptly laughed in my face.  So, I went back to my closet and dropped to my knees on the floor and cried like I have not cried in years because I felt so hopeless.  Why?  They know they are going to get in trouble, so why do it?  And, why not just go to sleep they were so tried?  Why me, God?  God, I cannot do this?  I was angry and hurt and I still have not been able to pinpoint the internal anger but God will show me then I am ready.  Wednesday was horrible, and my dear friend saw me struggling (I like to think all parents do at some point) and then we met up tonight at karate with our munchkins this shirt is what she handed me.  What an amazing friend, I have.  Thank you, for being to like and tender hearted.

Lunch on a Groupon
