Frustration…all too easy…

It was a long day today – I spent extra time at work this evening getting more work done so as to limit the amount of extra work tomorrow.

But what got me a bit fired up tonight was when I got to the train station and nobody was there to pick me up. My brother had called a little earlier on to ask when I could be picked up – I said 6:30pm. But when I arrived at my destination, nobody was there.

I then got pretty frustrated at this lack of communication, and as my mind went a little wild with scenarios playing inside my head (of what I could have spurted out in reaction to this moment) I remembered back to what Jesus said in Luke 6:45.

So I asked a quiet prayer of forgiveness…and will endeavour to be a more open communicator with my family. We’ll see how this application point turns out later…
