My big mouth

Yesterday I had a fight with my hubby over nothing really important, and out of my mouth came such filth that it actually shocked me. But  I was so angry, at him and at myself (for realising that I now had to apologise for what i had said), I didnt want to. It took me over an hour of  wrestling with my emotions before I did so. And then, I messed that up to0. I was still angry over the incident that I said Sorry....but..I am not the only one to blame here.  I couldnt just hold my tongue back, because in my heart I felt that he was to blame for starting the fight.
Pride is a hard emotion to work with. To humble yourself and just say sorry regardless, is an incredibly hard thing to do.

Proverbs 11:2
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.
Colossians 3:7-9
You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips
 Psalm 4:4
In your anger do not sin;
Proverbs 14:17
A quick-tempered man does foolish things,

I thank God for His word, which brings life, truth, wisdom and knowledge.......and FREEDOM
I still have a long way to go........BUT....I have come a long way to!

Hi! Yes, I am on anti-depressants. Thank God for them!

I was learning in a class something about my marriage. Something like... When I win WE lose
When I lose WE lose
That we need to know that we are on the same team. Not easy!!!! but sure gave me a new perspective!
