It doesn't look good. These individuals and their lawyers are planning to save their pride, and kill Beau, on February 6. Please see Michele Kearn's website, and PLEASE spare a moment to voice your thoughts to the city official involved. This is not the America we want, where elected official can break state law to save face.
And now, here we are for Five-Minute Friday , hosted by Kate Motaung. The challenge is to write for five minutes on a given "theme word", posted by Kate on Thursday night...and then stop when the timer dings.
We're also linking to The Weekend Brew. Drop in for some great thoughts on life and faith!
Today's word is wait..
Marriage arguments can spiral out of control so quickly. A cross word is said, and it hurts.
When you're hurt, you hit back, right?
Immediately. Before another blow can be landed. Like in boxing, if you take too many ounches, you're going down, and will only dimly hear the ref counting you out of the match.
But marriage is not boxing. Marriage is not a fight, even when there are fights.
We need to know how to defuse the arguments before they go completely south, and the biggest part of that is waiting.
When you've been hurt, when your ego's been bruised...before you reply, wait.
Wait and think.
Will what you planned to say make things better, or worse. Will it give the thrill of revenge, or will it work toward a solution.
Will it hurt, or will it heal.
You'll find, very often, that the words you were about to send forth are for naught but the dark thrill of getting even.
And you'll feel the worse for saying them.
