We all have days when our family members get annoying. Oh, wait…that doesn’t happen to me. 😉
“Moooommmmmy, I just spilled my orange juice all over me and the flooooor.”
Sighing, you clean it up, redress the kid and start the day again with the outlook that today is going to be unforgettable!
Morning is in full-swing, you’re singing along to your favorite tunes; Your arms are full of freshly folded laundry when you trip over your family members’ shoes that were so casually placed in the middle of the walkway.
You’re on the phone and your family members are making too much noise. Being on the cordless allows you move to another room, but they follow you. Either the noisy people are oblivious or they are playing Follow the Leader and made you their leader.

Go Into Hiding
We all have days when someone gets under our skin, rubs us the wrong way, and our Super Christian status goes into hiding. I found this gem one day and it has been a great practical scripture:
Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, until the indignation is past. Isaiah 26:20 NKJV
Get thee to thy private room.
Ahem…the bathroom is a great place to escape! Just lock the door, flip on the fan and it’s like a 2nd throne room as you start praying. Pun intended. Ha!
Also, seeing your face while angry can be entertaining and also quite telling.
In all seriousness, though, it’s better to flee behind that locked door and regain your composure rather than hurting someone you love.
P.S. It’s probably better that you don’t slam the door before you lock it. Just sayin’.
