I came home yesterday and kicked the cat.  Cat Kick Graphic

A situation cropped up during the day that didn’t make me real happy. I had tried to let it go but  didn’t talk to God about it during the day and just let it stew. Later when Dave came home, he said something that I didn’t listen to clearly enough and I blew up at him. I definitely did not heed the advice of James when he says ‘everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry” James 1:19.  So after blowing up, I couldn’t fall asleep so I washed the dishes.  When I wash dishes, I am able to think and process through things.  I may take my anger out on the dirty dishes and it is very rare that a plate or two gets broken but at least I accomplish something productive.  I apologized to Dave and the anger is gone.  I learned (AGAIN!) that I need to pray about everything (Phil 4:6,7) and to listen before I speak.

And don’t worry  – no animals were injured in this story – we don’t own a cat.
