Is it just me, or are there a lot of angry women out there? The other week I was at a Boys Brigade event and a woman took my attention, as she was pulling on a child’s arm (hard), and yelling, or should I say spitting at the child, and two others. She might of been having a bad day, granted, but she was so angry. Later in the day, my son was her son’s partner, they were about to race (on a go cart), and she grabbed her son’s arm, yanking him away, and said that “we’re going”, I said, “Oh,they are about to race”, she turned to me with gritted teeth, and growled “my other son is injured I have to leave, is that alright with you?” Ok, I said in a shocked way. As it was she didn’t leave, but she left an impression.
When I lived in Moe, I remember children being called the worst names in the most aggressive ways, and just for the record, I know I’m not quitless. I am naturally an emotional, and aggressive person. I have prayed all through my life to have a gentle and quiet spirit, to be kind and loving, but it’s hard. In fact, this is one of the reasons that led me to be a Christian. My mum recieved a call from my school, saying that I was a nasty little thing. It wasn’t long after, that I heard about Christ, and how He was not only willing to forgive me, but that he would be with me, and love me, despite me. I digress, I was speaking about agro mummas.
Nancy Campbell, the Above Rubies lady, always says “Mums, be Sweet” what good advice that is. If you are doing too much (which I think most women are), tone it down, and be sweet. Proverbs 31 says “The law of kindness is on her lips” May God make this true for me. I found this useful site, with some good advice, take a look.http://jasmine-aboverubies.blogspot.com/search/label/Virtuous%20Woman
