I have a wonderful life and am truly blessed. That being said, I was still in a bad mood all weekend! Have you ever gone through a couple of days where you were irritable?
This morning I had to remind myself of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a -
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude.
It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing,
but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things,
endures all things. Love never ends.
These verses do not described a foul, irritable mood. Instead, these describe an uplifting and encouraging demeanor. Although I am extremely familiar with this commonly quoted passage, I think I need to memorize these verses, write them out, and place them where I can see them throughout the week. We all need reminders from time to time.
I think I will be adding Bible memorization to my list of goals. Of course, the Hello Mornings Challenge is going to be a great way to keep me accountable. This week...1 Corinthians 13:4-8a, so Mrs. Ketchup can have a reminder to work on her attitude.
Also, a big shout-out to Mr. Ketchup for dealing with me kindly this weekend, despite my bad mood! He even took me to another restaurant that has several gluten-free options.
