I’m unsure of when it happened. But I’ve been super grumpy lately. Everything kind of annoys me. And when I feel that way, I tend to retreat because I don’t want to subject others to my poor attitude. Maybe it’s sleep deprivation. Maybe it’s the demands of wifedom & Motherhood. I wear irritable like a classic black dress to a party, but I’m not wearing it well. It doesn’t feel good.

Beth and I are continuing our look at love based on 1 Corinthians 13. This week is about not being irritable. I want my love to not be so easily irritated than it has been lately. 

So, as you’re sitting at the Thanksgiving dinner table, try not to let certain family members bug the crap out of you. Don’t let anything get in the way of you being grateful. Not on this holiday – and not on any day. 

Lord, help me to not be grumpy with my loved ones. Ok, and strangers too.
