Awww Man!

Okay.  Confessions of a saint.  That is a bit of a paradox isn't it?  I am not a saint, I am a sinner.
I just get to be called a saint because I love Jesus.

I posted last on not being served, but serving.

Today:
I yelled at Benjamin and he cried, "You are scaring me to death."
I replied, "If you don't stop, I'll give you something to be scared about."
 
Tonight:
I yelled to Ben  (a.k.a. Precious husband who has been extremely occupied at work) that he needed to attend to ME!!!!  That wasn't all, but I have great respect for him and I was clearly in the wrong so I'll leave it at that.  Aghhhhh, I desire to encourage him.  Sometimes I wish my mouth was duck taped.  The worst part is he quietly let me rant and rave so I really looked psycho after I hung up on him.  Let's see what was the part about serving...

Thank you Lord for loving this saint; the one that needs duck tape.
I am so glad that You are honored in my repentance.
Because not much of anything I said today was honoring to You.

You, my sweet friend, are just a normal Mom...and it does get scary at times. Shake it off...say you're sorry...and start again.

Now gotta figure out how to pack a whale...

I'm outta here...bye!

THanks for making me feel better about my totally depraved self. As Paul says in Romans...
"For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing." It's a process my friend... as you always encourage me... I'll encourage you with your own words {or Betsy's words}... God is glorified in your repentance. To make you feel better... I told Morgan to shut up last week.... I was at my wits end... but still no excuse. Love you!

You've already taken the most important step of saying you're sorry and asking for forgiveness. Grace,grace,grace pours over you like cool, living water. The Lord doesn't expect perfection, but a contrite heart, so aren't we thankful for His saving grace while we're on this long road home?
extra hugs,

Thanks for sharing your sin and helping others--me--realize I'm not the only one who could use duck tape from time to time.

Seriously, it helps to know we aren't alone in this. Just wish other people realized this is human and "normal" to sin.

Love,
Paula

Ohhh Andi! How I loved the transparency of this one :) How many posts could I have, just like this? When you get done with that duct tape, if you could just put it in the mail to me!
