David got home, and he talked me out of my tree. We both agreed that I was blowing today's episode out of proportion. We figure that I'm still feeling raw and new and unsettled, despite the fact that most days lately, I do pretty well. I guess I forget that I'm extra sensitive until something like this makes me blow my lid out of proportion...
And to finish the story, the lecture this morning hit several points that made me realize that I do have to let this go with grace. Here are some select quotes from my notes:
- "We have to battle through our moods. Get your eye of the problem and onto Him."
- "Elijah should've gotten his mind on all the ways God had provided for him in the past."
Ok, I know God's trying to calm me down here. =)
*****So I shall let this go the way of all flesh and concentrate on the next big thing... our impending trip to Texas. "The stars at night, glow big and bright, (stamp, stamp, stamp, stamp), deep in the heart of Texas." We're going to see Kelli and Danny and clan! Unfortunately, our adventure will begin far too early in the morning tomorrow. We have to get Baby up to go to the airport by 4:30 a.m. Grrrr. But hey, it helped save big money on plane tickets. And we'll get there early. I may have to drink my weight in Dr. Pepper to make it through the rest of the day, but that is an option. =) Please pray that Seth will handle the flight and the sleep disruption with miraculous cheerfulness. Or miraculous sleepiness. =) I don't want our fellow passengers to escort us off the plane with torches and pitchforks at 20,000 ft. So, see ya later. After Monday for sure.********
