I'm not saying that God made me sick, but I am saying that He is definitely using this to show me stuff about myself, my parenting, and my role as a wife and friend. I am realizing that I can effectively discipline and instruct my kids without yelling! Wow, what a thought! And I am learning that I talk way too much! I have been forced to listen more and talk less when I am with my husband and my friends. And you know what, things have been sweeter and better. So I guess, as my friend Tess said, I am on an involuntary speech fast. And God is doing a work in me through it! Praise Him for His mysterious ways!
"Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: you must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry." (James 1:19)
Have a blessed day,
