My friend Tina, finds pleasure in other people’s bitterness. If she can make you mad, or get on your nerves, it makes her day! I, on the other hand, am a caring, compassionate person who chooses to weep with my friends rather than to laugh at them when they’re bitter. Unlike Tina, I take no delight in the bitterness of others. That is, except for Bitter Ben. Bitter Ben is a fellow blogger here on WordPress and I’m quite amused by his writing. He takes bitter to a whole new level. (The blog is appropriately titled Ben’s Bitter Blog. Here’s the link. Ben’s Bitter Blog | “We make bitter better.” http://bensbitterblog.wordpress.com/ Check it out!) I guess there are certain instances when other people’s bitterness is funny. My own bitterness, however, is definitely not a laughing matter. This morning, I’ve been bitter!
Last night the kids, aka 23 and 20 year old young adults, made candied and caramel apples. If you’ve ever had a candied apple then you know that the candy hardens to tooth-breaking hardness. Well, it’s supposed to. This morning I walk to the kitchen, to make Steve some breakfast, only to find that a saucer containing leftover candy had tipped over, and that dang candy had run all over the counter!! If that’s not enough to turn anyone’s Monday bitter, I don’t know what is! That being said, this is it for today. If you want a longer, better, less bitter read? Maybe Bitter Ben can please you! Happy Monday!
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:31-32
