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.
