I hit my 200 post yesterday. That's not a mile stone for me. I never planned on measuring my blog by the posts I make. When I have been on a year that will be a milestone. I have posted everyday so far. That is a milestone. I love writing!!
Yesterday was an exasperating day or I should say my focus was lost. Remember I said God has been working on my thought life. Well, I couldn't find a receipt for something that we have had only a week and it broke so I needed to take it back to the store. Hubby told me I filed the receipt. But I remember when my hands have touched something. I didn't remember this receipt or what it looked like. So my frustration level shot up without "even" giving thoughts a second thought. I began to grumble a-n-d complain. But then I stopped what I was doing and called my prayer partner. We prayed together on the phone and while she was praying for me I went upstairs, sat at hubbies desk and ruffled through a few invoices and guess what I found. You are so right - the receipt. I knew I had never filed that thing.
But oh the feelings that I had after finding it. I felt very sad that I had let something so minuscule change my focus, my thought and my peace. I should have kept on my original task and came back to that irritation when I could be more calm.
I had to ask God to forgive me for my attitude. It is a good thing my hubby had to run errands while my complaining was going on or I would have to asked his forgiveness too.
