My day started today with me being preached to by someone quoting Bible Scriptures to me…not letting me get a word in edgewise and in effect judging me. (Yes it happens amongst Christians sometimes.) Then phone call after phone call, trying to round up rides, some successful and others not. Finding out the real results of that mammogram, and this afternoon I did finally get the letter with the true results on it, along with a phone call to go in to the clinic where I originally was referred for a mammogram, to get yet another referral. So I had to then round up a ride to go tomorrow and do that, as the lady at the clinic was very urgent with me about getting in ASAP.
And then conversations (minimal ones, mind you…I chose to participate very little) with people stating in their own special ways why they hate all the hateful, war monging, horrible Christians and are justified in doing so. (Not in the mood.) But let the reverse be done…let someone come along who’s a Christian saying the same things in reverse, and they’d be all over that person along with probably every member of the news media talking about another example of a hateful, war-monging, prejudiced Christian.
Bottom line: There are good people, there are bad people. Not all the good people are Christians, nor are they all non-Christians (even atheists…big surprise to some, I know), and the same holds true for the bad ones. And truth be told, every one of us has good and bad in us…we all have flaws and human frailty and things we’re right about and things we’re wrong about. I don’t hate anyone. But I am NOT willing to be tolerant of people hating me because of some ‘in their head justifiable’ wrong attitude toward me and others like me, any more than they would be of me being that way with them. Not today.
I’m a human being! And guess what? This day has just plain sucked. I’m tired and ready for it to end. Yes, I have those days too. I’m not always little miss Pollyanna, and I don’t feel particularly like being that right now. Right now I’d like to smash something. Problem is, then I’d just have to clean up the mess and would be out whatever it was I smashed. Not worth it.
So, how was your day?
