     Discipline, strength and totally taking my mind to a "new/different/Heavenward place" are key for me.  For I know the plans God has for me are NOT for evil.  Acting out on "momentary Hell" would be powered/inspired by the "evil one".    "Think on these things ... whatever is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy ... think on these things.  Whatever you have learned, received, heard or seen from Me, put these things into practice.  And The God of peace will be with you."  Philippians 4:8-9.   
    "I can do all things thru Him Who gives me strength."  Philippians 4:13

     As the Caregiver of my husband who has Alzheimer's I find myself suddenly flying into a rage over (not the big things) but the simplest small thing. For ex., I asked him to brig me one little thing (an old opened bag of popcorn) from the kitchen - he brought the new, unopened bag which I was saving and 'to help me' he opened the new bag!  Grrrrr!!!!  I need to stop - take a deep breath - say a little prayer-  have a little patience - and say nothing till the angry feeling passes. Wish me luck!
