Construction Zone: Self Control

December 29, 2006 Scott’s in the hospital – since Wednesday.  I’m stressed out and not managing very well, at least not like I’d like to.  I wish I had more composure – so that even when I’m stressed, I could still manage to keep it together.

God, this one is hard … so hard.  My filter stinks!  Please help me learn to be cautious to guard my speech.  I want to be sensible.   I just need to learn to be quiet … just because I ...
