For the Mom at her wit's end (like me)

"Calm your anger and forget your rage;
do not fret, it only leads to evil.
For those who do evil shall perish;
the patient shall inherit the land."

(from Psalm 37, today's Evening Prayer in Magnificat)

Ever feel like God is talking directly to you through Scripture? Good news: HE IS.

I thought I was a patient person until I had children. I am not. But I am working on it.

After this email, I am certain you felt I needed to hear this. :)

I wasn't a patient person before children. They are breaking me. But in a good way. Whenever i pray for patience, it seems that God just gives me even more opportunities to practice patience.
