Two things tonight:
1) My head shrinker has said on several occasions that I "awfulize," (i.e. expect the worst out of every situation). Tonight at Bible Study a verse stuck out to me. The following is from Hebrews 12:15, "See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springs up and causes trouble, and through it many will become defiled."
This is another (specific) example of how I need to take the word of God and apply it to my everyday life. Because all of my negative obsessions do come from a "root," a small thought that grows and grows and grows and not only affects me, but the way that I interact with others.
2) A cool thing about my Dad: Listening to Glen Beck (I know, I know...it was just on) on the way home and he was talking about his priorities this year.He said, when his wife calls, his co-workers will hear, "just a minute, this is my wife, I need to take it," as opposed to, "I'm busy honey, let me call you back." I remember one time I called my Dad on his cell phone, and he answered. We talked for a moment and I asked what he was up to (I could hear that he was in a restaurant) and he said, "I am having dinner with the head of the FAA." Horrified me at the time - makes me smile today!
(Kim I can't spell, but you know that...)
And all these things shall be added unto you
