Changing With the Wind

A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. Proverbs 15:1

Today was a generally awesome day. Absolutely fantastic. Honestly. Mr. Houseful and I made some phone calls and found out that we can do something that we’ve been wanting to do for a while – I promise I’m not trying to be mysterious on purpose, but I will share when it happens.

Then I got a disturbing phone call. Without going into details, it could have definitely gone better than it did. My good mood was eradicated and I instantly became hot as fire!

As I was sitting trying to figure out how to deal with the situation at hand, that particular scripture came to mind. While I still don’t feel as if the way the conversation went was necessary, I do know that I am the only person that can control how I react. Mostly the type of reaction that I am thinking about now is just really only focusing on Mr. Houseful and the Housefullettes(??) as usual and definitely make others second priority. Right at this moment, I find solace in looking at the photo of Mr. Houseful and I standing Atlantic Ocean last year. It was calm, and I was calm.

How do you deal with mood turners like I’ve had today? I’m definitely going to end up saying a different type of prayer tonight. More along the lines of “Lord, please lead me in the way that *I* am supposed to act” and not one of “Lord, show this person why THEY were out of line.” It’s not my responsibility to do that. And like I said, I can only control how I act and react to things.

Right now, the way that I do that is to hang up, and revisit at a much later date.
