What a challenge in today's "hug" devotional.

I know I certainly didn't shine a very nice light, this morning. In some ways I feel very much justified in my frustration.

I signed Chris (12-year-old son) to go on a field trip with his Air Cadet squadron to visit the military establishments in Ottawa. We had to be at the squadron building by 7:30 this morning, which meant being up around six and hopefully in the car by quarter to seven.

Well I woke Chris up at quarter after 6. I go up quarter to 7 to get baby Brent ready to discover Chris lying across the bed still in his pajamas. I was not happy. (Chris is mildly autistic and getting him up in the morning has been a struggle all year.)

Anyway...I was not a happy camper. We were 10 minutes late. Thankfully they hadn't left, yet, and a few other cars pulled in behind me, so I was glad I wasn't the only one.

So, I read today's hug and felt a tug at my heart. Then I read today's Scriptural thought and thought, I probably feel more like a speck of dust at the moment. But, it is very comforting to know that even though the light I displayed this morning was slightly more akin to the dark side, God still crowns me with all glory and honour. Hope you feel a little more like a crown and less like a speck of dust, today.
