I am currently reading Feminine by Design by Scott T. Brown. One of the chapters talks about being feminine not only on the outside, but also inwardly. He discusses having a gentle and quiet spirit. I have been pondering this over the last few days and trying to not react to the things around me. Yes, easier said than done. Before lunch I dealt with cat vomit all over the laundry room, Sammy pooping in his pants, boys taking wrestling too far, a teenager-’nuff said, and to top it off my head and throat hurt. Plus, Rod has asked me to call the bank and every time I pick up the phone a mini-crisis strikes.
Yesterday was my birthday and I just love the beginnings of a new year…a new school year, January, and birthdays. I love to think about the past year and my goals for the new one. This year I would like to act like a grown-up ;). I’d like to be steady, gentle and quiet…to not allow circumstances determine my behavior. I can’t control many of the things that occur around me, but I can control my attitude-with Christ’s help.
