I Am Angry..Righteously of Course!!!
I am angry.
We left from the southwest part of Florida this morning very early.
And the plans were to drive 10 hours, plant it for the night..and complete the trip tomorrow.
But the retired UPS driver is driving and on a mission. Reservation canceled. We only have 4 hours and 22 minutes left. My body may not make it. I’m not as young as I used to be is just not a saying right now..it’s truth!!!
It hit me while we were driving through the mountains of Tennessee. In one 12 hour period, I have seen a sunrise over the incredible ocean and the sunset through magnificent mountains.
So I feel the anger dissipating…a bit. My body isn’t responding in kind, but I get it. I appreciate it. I appreciate the guy whose tenacity to meet a driving goal gave him a wonderful career and retirement. I appreciate the safety we have been given in the comforts of this car. I appreciate the sunrise over the waters as much as the sunset through the mountain tops.
Anger is really a waste of time. It does nothing productive, it has no life in it for sure.
“You formed the mountains by your power and armed yourself with mighty strength. You quieted the raging oceans with their pounding waves and silenced the shouting of the nations. Those who live at the ends of the earth stand in awe of your wonders. From where the sun rises to where it sets, you inspire shouts of joy.” Psalm 65:6-8
So I think I will let him worry that I’m still mad a little longer. After all, it is righteous anger!
Just kidding…I apologized.
