Some Mornings I Need a Little...


Like when I wake up to this note that I forgot I told Nate to write me (so I wouldn't forget to do what I told him I'd do...)


And I wasn't planning on going anywhere because there are all these dishes still in the sink and I add to them by making more dishes for our hungry selves...


And I come around the corner to find that my little guy was practicing his skills with the scissors...


Even little messes here and there can make my blood pressure rise.

Thankfully God provides all the patience I need if I only ask and obey (and then have my kids help clean up!) 

James 1:19-20
My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.

1 Corinthians 13:4a
Love is patient, love is kind.

Proverbs 15:18
A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension, but a patient man calms a quarrel.

Galatians 6:9
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Just wish I'd ask and obey every single time.  ;)

Looks like my house! :)

Thank you for this bit of encouragement! I was gone all weekend so I'm starting my week behind already! I will think of those verses when my blood pressure starts to rise!

Have a wonderful day!

Amen sister, Oh do I know about mornings like those, but where we are weak He is strong....so key to stop and just ask :)
