This is not the perfect storm, but a self-complicated one. Confusion from the unexpected brings out my tendencies to bring a crisis oriented world view into my decision process. Verbalized with words like "have to", the crisis demands toughness. Rather than listening to what's next, quick analysis kicks in to force a desired outcome. What I don't realize through this reaction is that I throw away the discernment available of the beauty of the complex, that all things are related through the sovereign control of a Holy Father. Colossians 1:9-14

I resort to unidimensional thinking in a multidimensional world in which I complicate beauty into something ugly to justify my lack of gentleness and patience.

Peace down. Psalm 85:8
