My blood sits on a stove top
and plenty of times
I have boiled over.
Wishing I had put a lid on it.
Early in our marriage,
I struggled with
I really struggled with understanding
and putting myself in his shoes.
I would blow up with me needing a break.
We would get in a tiff,
and me, more than him.
He doesn't have blood that boils.
Would regret things said.
God worked in my heart...
I thought traveling every other week was
I thought he gets a break from these very needy
I can't even go to the bathroom
with out them all being in here.
( and the dog too)
I'm sick of eating mac-n-cheese.
But in all reality
traveling and going here and there
Like bad airplane food.
Phone calls and messages that can't be finished.
Delays and foggy weather.
Holidays almost missed .
Longing for your own bed and favorite spot on the couch.
No time for just him.
Things he loves to do on down time.
What down time??
He'd come home and half to "make" up for all
that time gone.
It really isn't that fun.
God pulled on my
heart and opened my eyes to
see how I needed to be more patient.
(Trust me... I am still a work in progress.)
There are days when I am stressed and
the pot starts to boil.
God in His mercy and grace
reaches down and puts a lid on it.
