There are days when from the moment you get up the sun has smacked you, the coffee pot hates you, and your clothes have decided to go on strike and not fit! You haven’t even walked out the door and you’re already flustered and irritated. Can I get a witness?! The crazy moments of our lives tend to bring out the monster in all of us. It happens. We’re human, but we simply can’t live day to day grouchy and unhappy. We are in control of our thoughts, actions, and boundaries. Today, I had to stop, drop, and pray. I had to talk to the Lord and then myself. Yes, myself! I said, “Self, you are not going to allow others and circumstances to dictate who you are and how you act” “you are full of fruit…love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control!” {Galatians 5:22-23} I had to have a pep talk with good ole me. We can’t rely on “things” going well in order to be happy. Go to a quiet place and have a talk with yourself! You set the tone for the day! Be strong and fruity!!
