However, there are times when it's not a bad thing. It's as though I'm being spoken to through my own mouth. I know the wisdom is not my own. I'm being inspired--"breathed into" by the Spirit of Truth. Such was the case on Monday...
My little one's heart is often frustrated by the fact that people simply will not follow rules. They must. If they won't, she is compelled to set things straight. I know there's a plan for this passion but it can also be the source of much strife--the job often belongs to another--in this case, her parents.
"He's not letting her answer the question!"

Just be gracious.
Worthy of being loved.
"Be gentle with one another, sensitive.
Forgive one another
as quickly and thoroughly
as God in Christ forgave you."
