Colossians 3:23 Whatever you do, do it from the heart for the Lord and not for people. CEB
What happens to women to make them think that they have to take on everything? My goodness. I find myself so shot out that I end up resenting what I thought I’d love. Then I use up all my allotted cuss words. Then I find myself frustrated at my husband for sitting there in the recliner with his feet put up. Doesn’t he SEE how overloaded I am?
Thanksgiving. You know, the holiday set aside for giving thanks and junk. I sure had to have a little “Come to Jesus” meeting with myself. I ordered my food from a restaurant, I spent the day with my family, and I let the rest go. You know what? Nobody died. Nothing fell apart. The world didn’t end. And I sure am more thankful for the time spent with my family.
Dear God, thank You for giving me a good lesson these past few days. I still want everything my way RIGHT NOW, but I am learning that nobody will explode, not even me, if things happen at a slower pace. Perspective and patience is a good lesson to learn. I just need to calm down and remember that whatever I need to do, needs to be done from my heart with love, not with resentment and frustration. Same amount of work, just worlds of difference in the end results.
