I throw corporate parties for a living, throw parties for friends at home… so excuse me while I throw myself a short pity party. I promise, it won’t last long.
I had one of “those days” that left my blood boiling and me biting my tongue, and my lip, and my fist in an attempt to not say something I would later regret. It was one of those days that I could only survive by quoting my favorite Bible verses, over… and over… and over.
Let everyone be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to become angry; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.
Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
2 Timothy 4:5
Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer to everyone.
But now my bad day is over, and I can curl up on my couch and hide from all of the stresses and frustrations and worries and pretend none of them ever happened. I’m going to drink my herbal tea, have some ice cream (because I really DO deserve it today), and watch my new Office Season 4 DVD (hooray! I finally bought it!).
And tomorrow, I will go out and reclaim my good attitude. I will conquer the world! And I will wear cute shoes while I do it!
