A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.    
 Proverbs. 15:1

Happy Tuesday!  Sometimes Tuesday can be a day of stress.  It’s the beginning of the week.  Bills are due but it’s several days before payday.  Deadlines are looming.  The children have homework, ball games, concerts and a host events to attend and you are the driver, personal assistant and coach.  Housework is piling up.  While it’s not Monday, . . . It’s still tough!

Trust me when I say I’ve been there and Tuesday hits me hard sometimes too.  The best thing to do is to take a deep breath, take a mental step back and respond (DMR).  Don’t react!  My boss is an absolute pro at this.  I have a tendency to completely freak out, recover and tell everyone I’m sorry.  Sometimes sorry isn’t enough to make everything okay.  I’m definitely a work in progress, but I am improving.  I find that planning for tomorrow, living in the present and trusting God with the rest helps.  Worrying is the absolute worst thing to do.  You can’t worry and trust God!  Also, remember that life goes by fast.  Try not to rush through life, meeting deadlines.  Enjoy the moments.

So, I challenge you to remain calm and respond with a cheerful attitude. God bless you!

    1. I think I should have included sick children and older children. There is so much stress with caring for sick children and missing work. Older children can cause a great deal of stress too. I’m so glad I have God by my side!

  1. Today was a bit hard, because I have fibromyalgia and I had some cooking to do; but it was also good. I always appreciate it when God gives me the strength to cook for my mom and hubby. Also, I am painting a picture for my daughter and God helped me finish it today. He gave me some good ideas. Lol I’m a terrible artist right now, but I’m working on it.
