Today I would like to encourage you to do something that my husband and wish I was better at. I am not sure why I woke up in such a funk today, but I am still not up to par. It may have something to do with the thunderstorm that kept me and two of my girls awake most of the night, but there is really no excuse.
These feelings reminded me of some good advice I found from balzerdesigns.typepad.com.
She says her marriage is helped by her following this simple rule:
"BE KINDER THAN YOU FEEL."
The real beauty of kindness is when we:
(1)ask God to help us and
(2)actually take action to be kinder than we feel, we almost always will then
(3) begin to feel kinder as well.
Can you think of a time when this was true for you?
