Today, I spent an hour in a waiting room. I hate wasting time. Actually, I do such a good job wasting time, I don't like it when OTHERS waste my time.
However, throughout the day I was able to work on my new bible study "Words that Hurt, Words that Heal" by Carol Mayhall. It is about the tongue. For one of the first time, I choose to give grace. I just kindly let the receptionist know that I was going to need to reschedule because it was over an hours since my appointment and I needed to attend to my family.
"Oh no!" she exclaimed. I had fallen through the paperwork loop. I would have horns usually, but thankfully I was walking WITH Jesus. He kept me calm. I was able to talk with another person waiting and extend grace to all who heard.
May I continue to grow in areas when I am not in control and be kind to all who hear.
