Sooo...Wes and I had an argument today. Started this morning and went on til early afternoon. I cannot believe how good God is! Read on....

So here I am, so angry with Wes as we were arguing about one of those "thorns in our sides" and when this "issue" comes up we almost always end up arguing because Wes thinks I open myself up for a world of "potential hurt" and I don't look at it that way. So, today I just wanted Wes to suck it up and get over this "issue." I was not taking his feelings into account. I was angry at him. I was not loving. I was even childish in some of my statements. I told him, through tears, that I didn't even want to be around him today.

Then I sat at the kitchen table and opened my Study Bible and my reading for today was from 1 Corinthians 13 titled "Love." I thought in my head...."oh great, do I really want to read this?" I went on to read this chapter and take notes:

LOVE " not easily angered.... does not keep record of wrongs" (Wes suggested I have an anger problem in the "heat of the moment." Do I Lord? Why did I bring up him not getting me strawberry ice cream when that was 2 days ago? Why am I hanging onto that Lord?) 1 Cor. 13:5

"When I became a man, I put childish wasy behind me." 1 Cor. 13:11 (Why was I acting like a child and storming around and taking off to the park with the boys rather then talking it out with my husband?)


Wow...can you read what I just experienced? Maybe I cannot write it like it happened. But oh the chill bumps I had after reading that chapter. Could God have been right in front of my face and spoke any clearer to what I needed to hear??? Wow! Our Lord is amazing! I had to go and share with Wes what just had just happened. Thank you Lord for your incredible word and your all-knowing Spirit!
