He's Still Working on Me

Yesterday, a dear young lady on our ministry team asked me to fill out a referral form.  She is applying for a new job and I was more than thrilled and highly honored to do this for her.  She's so giving and for me to be able to give back was a wonderful treat.

Limited space was provided to write all I desired to share regarding her character.  So I did as any good person would do and made my own space, another words, I wrote on the line provided and added an arrow instructing the reader to turn the page over.  Where I wrote some more.

These were the extra words I wrote...
She is someone who always goes above and beyond the call of duty.  Her attitude is always positive and she is a pleasure to work with.  I trust her implicitly.
I meant every word of it.  I've known her for over 20 years and seen her go through some great and some not so great times.  Never have I seen her overreact, be unkind, or demonstrate a bad attitude. 

Man, I wanna be like that.  

I for sure wasn't yesterday morning.  My son got to see me overreact, be unkind, and demonstrate a bad attitude.  Glad he was the only one who saw my little tangent. 

But, sad he saw it.

I asked him to forgive me.  I got over my issue.  Which in hind sight was totally not anything worth acting the way I did.  But I did.
Thankfully today is a new day.  I'm moving on and striving to be the kind of person someone could easily write sweet things about too, and mean it. 

As we would sing in Children's Church, He's still working on me... 

That's for sure.

I had one of those days yesterday, Tina. It makes me feel so bad about myself when I let my 40 year old son get to me. I always call on the Lord to help me, and He does. Thank God...HE is still working on me,too! Your honesty made me feel much better, to know that someone that I admire like you, has difficulties, as well. Please pray for my son. He is bi-polar, living at home with us, and it is so hard to deal with, even though you love them so much. Thank you and blessings for all you do for others!

He's still working on me too. I try every morning to begin my day with a small prayer. Before I ever lay eyes on my children, I ask God to help me be slow to anger, kind with my words, and walk through the day with a smile.

Thankfully each day is a new gift! Because sometimes I blow it! I need forgivness and a fresh start ;)
