Don’t let the sun go down on your anger


The sun was already down before the anger came.  It’s almost midnight.  I’m tired, and very sad tonight.  But tomorrow’s another day.  I’m thankful for much…still holding on to those things in my mind…by a thread, but the thread’s still holding.

I’ve said it before…life is short and people ‘should’ deal with those they supposedly love accordingly.  We should take more care not to let the circumstances around us that go awry bleed into the way we treat those around us.  But we don’t always do that, do we?  And me…I always somehow wind up with my feelings getting stomped on.  I wish I didn’t have feelings.  I wish I could turn them off and be cold and unfeeling.  No…not really.  I wouldn’t want to be like that, though sometimes it does seem like an attractive option to the pain.

But the pain will pass…the hurts will heal…sort of.  You can never undo careless words, or careless disregard that you’ve shown for people you say you love.  That’s the thing.  You can apologize for them, and that really does help immensely when the apology is meant.  But there’ll always be a scar left where words or unkindnesses have cut you.

It’s so hot in here with the A/C out.  Traci and Grace have come to sleep downstairs tonight…too hot upstairs.  I’m not going to sleep tonight.  I’ll probably lie down when Traci goes to work in the morning.  Maintenance should be here around 9 to fix the multitude of things that have suddenly decided to fall apart in the apartment.  So I should have a few hours to rest before that, and then I have homework and housework to do.  I wish maintenance could fix the broken spirit within me at the moment.  But God will.  I’m sad…I’m tired…but I will never lose hope in my God.  This too shall pass.

Love and blessings,

Anne

    Praying for you this morning and wishing I could hug you. Sorry I have not stopped by recently, but think of you often. May God’s blessings radiate in each moment of this day, may His love be evident as you go through the moments of this day and may He provide for all your needs and some of your wants.

  2. I’m sorry that you’re feeling hurt and very vulnerable and you’re right…even though people that have hurt us on purpose or not…and apologize..it doesn’t keep our minds from seeing and remembering those thoughts and words said or implied…Hoping and praying you feel better soon…Diane

      Things will be okay. Thanks Diane. Maintenance has been here today fixing things…has to come back and bring us a new refrigerator…soon I hope because I have to get showered and ready for school tonight. The A/C is working again, but it’s still 80 degrees in here. So hot outside the A/C has to work harder to pull the temp down. Everyone was stressed around here last night and that’s like dynamite in peoples’ systems, ready to blow when we aren’t careful. Things are better today, though I’m still tearful and shaky and exhausted. Days like this come and go and we all have them. 🙂 ♥
