Communion and Swear Words

IMG_2257

I feel the need to explain my blog post from yesterday because Communion and swear words don’t really go together.

On Monday night I was mad at Mark and my anger drifted into Tuesday morning until we resolved our issue. It’s hard to stay mad at a guy that feeds me, bathes me, wipes my nose and my butt. On the other hand it’s so frustrating for me to be upset with someone and not be able to properly express myself because I can’t use my hands for expression and sometimes my words don’t come out clear enough to be understood which can frustrate me even more.

By the time the afternoon rolled around Mark and I were back to normal and I had finished my bitchy blog post and posted it to the Internet. Our friend from church, Barb Perri, arrived to give Mark and I Communion and pray with us. We had a really nice visit with Barb and after she left I took a nap before our dinner guests, Jill and Eric, arrived. A couple of hours later we received a text from my friend Jill saying she would be happy to drop dinner off if I was having a bad day. I’m thinking Jill must have read my afternoon post. Mark texted her back saying we would rather see them and they brought a wonderful lasagna dinner over with Jill’s homemade noodles in it. We had an uplifting and fun with our afternoon and evening friends.

As the evening came to an end I thought about how awful I felt in the morning and how grateful I felt at the end of the day.

  1. I believe you are allowed to have those kind of days. God doesn’t expect perfection in us. And, I bet He probably expects that once in awhile. I’ve often wondered what came out of Jesus’ mouth when he overturned the tables of the money changers in His Father’s house. Do we really know that the words we say are actually “swear” words… I know that is what society says, but what does God say. I guess we will find out when we get the Heaven.

  2. As I have said many times.. what a difference a day makes, sometimes it is in hours. None the less glad your difference went in the right direction and sometimes we all need to swear a little just to make us feel better.. and yes it does make me feel better.
