Over Simple Things

It amazes me how disturbed one can become over the simple mishaps of life.
Take spilt milk for instance...this can send an adult into a whirl-wind of emotions.
Hey, itís just milk. Clean it up.
A broken glass...is it worth the anger spued out of ones mouth?
Buy a new glass or get plastic.
Adults forget that they too were once children.
Mistakes happen and we all are guilty.
I am so overwhelmed with gratitude that our Heavenly Father is patient.
I mess up.
I make mistakes in saying the wrong thing at the wrong time.
Or I donít do what He tells me to do.
Yet, His love for me is long-suffering.
I am blessed to have someone that is so patient and kind to me.
It would be a good thing the next time you feel that flame of anger
raging up within your spirit to step back for a moment and ponder itís validity.
Have you made the same mistake?
Is raging anger going to teach the truth?
Will you be judged as you are judging?
Remember this, God is patient with you...

Very sweet, made me feel like I was being held by a loving grandmother.

Anger...a flame....a consuming flame that turns into a raging inferno. Great imagery. If would could hang on to that picture of a flame out of control, we might discover we douse the anger before it really ignites.
Nice job....
