You ever have those days where you're just grouchy? The kids are grouchy, you're grouchy, the cat is grouchy... the laundry still needs to be folded... dinner is burning on the stove... the repair man is banging on the dryer... and your husband is pulling into the driveaway.
And, if you're like me, for a brief second, you picture yourself standing in the middle of the kitchen, head thrown back, screaming at the top of your lungs.
I feel much better.
Some days are just stinky. Not necessarily today thankfully. But some days.
Those are the days I climb into bed and think, "Lord, Help Me. Help Me. Help Me. Help Me!"
The point is some days are good days. Some days are grouchy days. Don't let the grouchy days define you. Accept that you screwed up, ask for forgiveness, and pick yourself up.
Don't lean on your own limited abilities; lend on the Lord's limitless possibilities.
Ask your kids to pray with you; ask them to pray for you.
Look beyond today toward the bigger picture.
And celebrate that tomorrow is a new day!
