This has been a bad week in that for the first time in awhile, I lost my temper. I lost patience. I wrote an angry hurtful email to a fellow brother which felt good when writing it but regret inevitably followed. Been under alot of stress lately (moving, Winter Retreat stuff mostly) but that is no excuse. I should have more patience, more grace than what I exhibited two days ago. Six email exchanges and I thought I held my frustration in check... little did I know, it just simmered at the top. On the 7th email, I was floored, steamed. My brother has already sort of forgiven me. God has forgiven me. I wish I had the patience and grace of our almighty Father.
