My I Corinthians 13
Patient: Knowing that one day dirty feet and dirty hands will not always seem so overwhelming
Kind: Remembering to be the wife he deserves even if it means spending time and money on the grass
Humble: I can't have everyone like me. People will hurt my feelings and sometimes it may actually be my fault
Selfless: Listening to her tell me a very in depth thought about randomness amongst the very loud chaos going on around us. Her never missing a beat and me trying to keep up with her even if I feel myself getting lost . Me, trying to hang on to her every word so she knows I am listening..that I will always listen.
Self-Controlled: When they come to me covered in dirt and paint for the 3rd time that day.... and me wanting to be mad because really...I kinda am. But I say...it is OK, go up and change...again!
Content: Being happy in the now of every day with them. Not wishing it to go faster. Not wishing it away. Being happy with tired arms and a sore back from holding a baby many hours a day.
Truth-Loving: Knowing that sometimes I am not a good friend, not a good sister, not a good daughter...wanting to be better
Forgiving: Smiling while someones laughs at me. Trying to think it was out of her own folly and not trying to be mean on purpose..because why would she be??
Trusting: That God will ...
Hopeful: To start something new at my church that I feel could be good for Pete and I . When my friends were here last week I was reminded of the Marriage Night Pete and I went to and thought I heard God's small voice encouraging me to bring this to our own parish....I am not always sure it is God's voice or my own intentions I hear...but I am still praying about it and becoming hopeful.
Persevering: In finishing the last weeks of home schooling and trying to not think about next year just yet.
