    I thought this caption was not only funny but had some truth to it.  As I just finished my music lessons as of a few minutes ago, I am once again reminded of my limited strength.  If I don't do as well as I'd like, my anger can fuel a little extra strength to try again. I suppose that's pride showing its face.
     So could I stab someone with enough anger and adrenaline?  Hmm, I hope so if a self-defensive case arose. I'm certainly for the death penalty so I think I could throw mercy aside.
     If we're going to be frankly honest, I've not only been stabbed but I've done some stabbing myself.   How?  The tongue can pierce like a knife. We often want to retaliate in some form.  Our actions often reflect an attitude of 'Im going to get them before they get me down' way of thinking.  It really doesn't make you feel better but leads to regret.  Romans 12:17-19  ''Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.  Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.''
     So not to sound like a hippie but 'Peace out.'


  1. Love the quote: how many of us have struggled to put the straw in the Capri Sun?!! But yes, I have been guilty of stabbing people in the back with my words, always better to think first, and if in doubt, say nothing. Good reminder!


  2. Angie, this is such an important issue, one we all struggle with. A reminder is always in order, and this is such a good one. I agree with Mary; I love the quote and identify with it quite well. How many times have I splashed juice on myself trying to puncture the box? I certainly don't want the "juice" of stabbing someone in the back with my words to taint me!

  3. I received the "peace." Back at ya.

  4. Ouch! This is good advice for all ages. Think I'll read this one to my girls.
