Patience

Funny how when you are praying for things like patience and anger management, you get many opportunities to use them! Thank God He's giving me just the right lifegroup study about anger, sermon about what stresses you out and scriptures to encourage me:

"A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger." Proverbs 15:1

It's been a tough week with Claire being especially fussy and Eden still waking up so much but in my wavering day I hold onto my unwavering God! There are times in my day that I think "How can I be so angry at someone I love SO much?" and then later that day "How can I love someone SO much?" Parenting is such a rollercoaster of a ride even when you are trying to be consistant! Anyway, asking for prayers to be successful with practicing my patience and for wisdom in growing up my sweet girly girls.... couldn't imagine my life without them. There's nothing like the unprompted hug and "I love you Mommy", the wet open kiss from my sweet baby girl, the smiles I get when I see them first in the morning, the innocent giggles from a tickle session, listening to my big girl sing praise songs.... it makes it all worth it.
