Last week in Bible Study we studied anger. I resolved to work on my temper and count to ten before reacting when feeling anger build.

The next day I discovered Joe at the table decorating my Bible. My first reaction was to cry, as this was a new leather bound "Mother's Bible" that I had purchased for the Bible Study. My second reaction was to get angry ("Can't I have one nice thing?!") but I counted to ten first to calm myself.  
During those ten seconds I found the irony in the situation. My little boy had written "I Mom" on my "Mother's Bible". Fitting, indeed.


  1. Rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover may tale some of it off...if you want to take it off that is! (;

    1. I'm afraid of that making the pink run all over. I think it's growing on me now. ;)

  2. Not too far down the track, that may well become a treasure to remember...on something that is the greatest treasure indeed! :)

  3. Awww... i'd have been heart broken as well at first, but years down the road, that will be a treasure. ((Hugs))
