G is for Grrr


Have you ever been so ANGRRRY that you GRRROWL like a GORILLA?

You actually looked like a gorilla, right?

Before you run into the mirror to confirm I want to share this letter with you.

Dear bendedspoon,

Anger was created to mobilize you to act upon something that may harm you and those you love. It is not meant to be your best friend!

Anger is an acid. In right dose, it cleanse. In overdose and prolonged exposure, it destroys. Don’t let it eat you up little by little.

Take Care,
The Physician

Now run to the mirror if you still want to see that grrrowling gorilla.

Then ask yourself, “Why do gorillas have big nostrils?”

Because they have big fingers!

I hope you are not angrrry with me.

      The big fingers proved that there is a Master Designer. Careful to those who disagree — none of their finger might fit their nostril! lol!
      Hugs to you πŸ™‚

    I am laughing too hard yet about the nostrils/fingers application. How can I stay angry when now I will always think of this???
    I have someone who picks her nose a lot. A lot.Now I’m glad that she has skinny fingers. πŸ™‚
    Serious time now . . .if I can. I found that if I start thinking of Jesus, start telling Him I love Him, because I do . . .I can’t stay angry.
    Thank you so much for these daily pick me ups!

    • bendedspoon Says:

      For some it is the new pose for As The Man Thinketh – I think I do that sometimes. lol!

      On Jesus part, that is very true. I have my own successes already in calming down with Him!

      Pick me ups…lol! I’m really laughing because He keeps on picking me up! πŸ™‚

    Thank you Princess.

    Growling is not becoming, is it? πŸ™‚ I most certainly don’t want to be a ‘Grrowly Gorrila ‘;-)

    Fingers? Nostrils? lol


  13. A saying that has helped me let go of anger is this: “Anger is like an acid. It does more harm to the vessel it’s stored in than the object it’s poured on.” So don’t store up anger – give it to God, lay it at the cross, and let Him take care. Forgive, just as our heavenly Father has forgiven.

    By the way, the end of this post really made me laugh! Peace, Linda

  14. Grrrrrrrrreat post! And I can pronounce it!
