TERRIFIC 2'S Tuesday
Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, Where have I gone wrong? Then a voice says to me, This is going to take more than one night.
Taking time to look inside our own hearts can be very helpful. Resentment, jealousy, or anger can tempt us to do something that we know is wrong. Sometimes it's easy to catch ourselves seriously contemplating revenge as a way of blowing off steam.
When we see an issue becoming too dominant in our mind, it is best to try to resolve it, even if all we can do is bring it to prayer. As hard as it may be, we have to try not to let old resentments and past hurts influence our thinking. If we see them rising up in a situation, we need to be very careful not to say something we may regret later.
By keeping our hearts pliable we’ll find ourselves far more forgiving and open toward everyone else.
Saying nothing . . . sometimes says the most
Have you ever noticed how hard it can be to find the right words to use. There are some situations that are just so overwhelming that saying nothing at all may be just the right thing to say.
Sometimes a hug or a smile may be just what is needed without voicing anything. Hugs and smiles are two of my very favorite things and I try to use them often.
That is my 2 for this Tuesday: hearts and hugs
Have a terrific Tuesday everyone!
