Anger

Guard your heart – Depression prevention part 2

Last week I got my annual flu shot. I’m late, but better late than never. I’m also washing my hands more. I want to do whatever I can to prevent getting ill. As women, we’re told to get yearly mammograms and do regular breast exams so that we will have the best chance at early detection of breast cancer. We’re told to eat a diet high in fiber…

You can’t make me angry

You can’t make me angry. I have an anger problem. However, I made a decision some years ago and it’s been life-changing for me. Here’s a conclusion I reached. Try as you might, you can’t make me angry. For me, that decision has made me a better, kinder, more-relaxed person. It took me a while to get there, and I’m still learning,…

What to do before you get angry

I can make a lot of excuses for what happened on Friday evening. I got up at 4:30 am, so I was cranky I had been traveling most of the day I hadn’t had a real meal in 8 hours I had not seen my family for 3 weeks It was a combination of those things and more that led to McDonalds for dinner, and ultimately, a life lesson. I just wanted a grilled…

Rising negative tide towards Christians

As a kid back in the 60’s, my Sunday school teacher Earl Palmquist said to something to me that I’ve never forgotten. It’s a long time ago, but I have a vivid memory of that morning in the basement, by the kitchen at Brooklyn Center Baptist Church.  Mr. Palmquist told our class, there will come a day, perhaps in…
