How I handled anger on a Christmas Eve- Day 10

Merry Christmas to all!! From me and my husband!❤️

How’s your Christmas so far?

My hubby and I are grateful to celebrate this year’s festive season because this marks our first Christmas together. I also got a chance to feel how a real “maybahay” is like. The fulfillment in taking care of the chores from cleaning to cooking made me realize that “Yeah! I’m now married!” 😂😂😂 It’s sinking in. I am maturing. 👏👏👏 I guess all married couples would feel the same way I do.

Today I want to share with you one moment that happened yesterday which tested my patience and understanding. My husband gave me an oven as a gift and when I’m about to use it, the tools were missing including the pan and hooks which made me panic for almost an hour since the chicken is all set for baking. To resolve the issue, I needed to come back to the mall where he bought it and have it replaced (without my husband who is currently at work). While on the way, you could imagine how I’m preparing that speech of a mad complainant. I was thinking how I can relay the inconvenience I’ve had until I went to Carrefour Customer Service. A man in blue uniform was courteous and apologetic about what happened but I still continued my prepared speech until I have thought of the following:

1. What am I frustrated about? These people are

working before eve and still in their cool?

2. What can my frustration lead to?

3. Am I blessing them through my words/

actions?

In a split second all of these questions went to my second brain. And I said “I am not being a Christian in this way”

The bible says,”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 NLT

Getting in the state of irateness is easy but maintaining peace is not. It needs constant repetition of a habit not to be conquered by anything that makes you mad. We may feel superior in every fight we win but our peace is also equal to what we lose. However, if in every argument or situation we are in, if peace is with us, the urge to win fades. We just learn how to have that “let go lifestyle” and move on. That’s how I surpassed it by the grace of God and wisdom. May peace be always within our hearts!

Sharing with you all our pictures during Christmas eve. Overall, it’s still and forever will be a special night. Happy Birthday Jesus!

❤️❤️❤️
