That is how I feel today.

Not quite sure why.

Not sure what exactly was the trigger.

It's just one of those days.

That is one part of me that I struggle the MOST with. I get upset or irritated, annoyed, and it snowballs into all sorts of stuff. But one thing I have learned is avoidance. GINA, DO NOT CONFRONT! Do not call a friend to unload, sit still. Vent to Chris, spend time praying about it and move on. Things aren't always what they seem.

James 5:9
Friends, don't complain about each other. A far greater complaint could be lodged against you, you know. The Judge is standing just around the corner.

I keep reading that passage over and over again. I've also been camped out on the one below.

James 5:19-20 My dear friends, if you know people who have wandered off from God's truth, don't write them off. Go after them. Get them back and you will have rescued precious lives from destruction and prevented an epidemic of wandering away from God.

So for today, I am not taking phone calls, not making any, eating lots of junk food and playing with Christopher. That is all I need to be doing today and I know that!

Oh girl, I haven't completely learned anything. :o) I am TOTALLY a work in progress and yesterday was the toughest day for me. I am completely a big mouth that doesn't mind confrontation and loves to unload but I'm slowly learning and today is a great day! Glad you found my blog, always like to meet other women trying to figure it all out. :o)
