The toothpaste gospel

Hmm... what a day. It's not like I'm running up against anything terrible or extremely difficult... just life. Why is it that I seem to feel like I'm losing my mind/my cool so much more than I ever have before?

My two beautiful boys are a gift from God- and today I feel like God sent them to me to test my very composition as a spirit filled woman... How can you tell what is inside a toothpaste tube? You can't see in it. You can't feel the texture of what is inside. You can't smell it's fragrance. Until... you open it- THEN squeeze it.

So- I'm feeling today like God has first opened me (more like for surgery than like uncapping toothpaste!) and now he's squeezing...

I'm thinking that if the analogy is comparing me to the toothpaste: I'm long past the expiration date... The fresh, newness that the Holy Spirit brings is soooo much preferred to the stale, oft expired nastyness of which my flesh is composed.

Lord, make me NEW!
