I've been really impatient and easily frustrated lately, and I'm not quite sure what to do about it. I know we've just moved to a new house, and there is added stress, which also makes me more tired. But I also know I'm not being the wife and mom I want to be when my "trigger" is so short.
Yesterday at church, someone said that the best way to teach your children about faith is to set an example for them by living it yourself. This challenged me even more to want to model the fruits of the Spirit to those closest to me!
One of the verses I try to bring to mind when I'm feeling less patient with Nathan is Ephesians 4:2 "Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love." In addition to learning this verse, I want to find ways that I can be refreshed so I am more patient and eager to serve, and I also want to help create a more positive atmosphere in our home.
