Already, today has been a sucky day.
And right in the big middle of my pity party, God spoke to me. Well, not in a voice that I heard, but by showing me something.
Let's back up to 8:45 a.m.
I have a file folder full of animosity that I am not proud of. And when I say file folder, I mean that literally. Occasionally, I have to dig into this file folder and when I do, anger rears its ugly head. A phone call later, and I'm seething. I'm ashamed, but it's the truth.
Then a very strange thing happened. I found, in this file folder of animosity, a book. Why in the world is a book in this file? I couldn't imagine.
Until I turned it over and God spoke to me.

I'm going to do some reading. And some listening.
