For the last few years at least I’ve suffered from horrible hormonal shifts and I hate it. I despise feeling helpless against sudden mood swings and irrational irritability. This week has been particularly hard but still I can’t let it be a crutch and an excuse for being angry. I have to tackle every single temptation to snap (and there are many) and hand them over to God.
The temptation is to just sit on the couch and hide in a book or on the computer and wait for it to pass. But you know and I know how bad an idea that is. Besides, I did that yesterday and very little got done around here — and typically when I do that the kids take their cue to run amok. They’re good at running amok.
Having said that I have to try to get some things done around here – even in the middle of the evil PMS.
- I need to get the dishes washed.
- I need to get the clean laundry folded.
- The kids need to do their school
- I need to finish making the kids’ bible verse cards for handwriting for the upcoming year.
If I can get those things done, and make it through the day without being sent to the loony bin, I’ll be happy. I just keep repeating:
“I can do all things through CHRIST who strengthens me!” Philippians 4:13
