Mrs. Nurse Boy here.
Today I am sharing some of my random thoughts from Sunday morning. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
*Alarm goes off too early.
*Frankly, if the alarm is going off, it is too early.
*Hit the snooze... 5 times. It really is amazing that my wonderful husband puts up with such behavior!
*It is COLD when I get out of bed. Plus, I am already running late.
*Yep, this is a set up for a relaxing, happy, joyful morning... NOT.
*I should mention that my entire family shares a main bathroom. Good times. Especially on Sunday mornings.
*Boys are goofing off and come out of their rooms in short sleeves.
*It is 4 degrees outside. Need I say more?!
*Boys goofing off in the car.
*Bruiser has been in the car for 4 whole minutes, yet he STILL hasn't buckled his seat belt.
*Did I mention that he seems to be moving in S-L-O-W M-O-T-I-O-N this particular morning?!
*I lost it.
*Yep. I yelled.
*ON OUR WAY TO CHURCH.
*After much thought and reflection, I muster up an apology when we get to church. God has really been dealing with me and my short fuse.
*I park myself in Sunday School. The topic? Parenting.
*The challenge? One change you can make immediately to be a better role model for your child.
*I swallow hard. God is really trying to work in me. Anger MUST take a hike. It is noted.
*Just when I feel like a horrible, no good, very bad parent, God encourages me during worship.
*On the Solid Rock I stand. All other ground is sinking sand.
*I am NOT standing in sinking sand.
*The sermon topic? Change is necessary. Our pastor was referring to the church, but I AM part of the church, aren't I?
*I get it, God. Time for change.
*And, I don't even have to do it on my own! (Good thing, too.)
*Thankfully, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
*Thankfully, I am NOT!
Happy Monday, everyone! Off to have a joyful day. It will be joyful because I have some major help from above!
