Jonah 3:8-9 "Man and beast shall be covered with sackcloth and call loudly to God; every man shall turn from his evil way and from the violence he has in hand.  Who knows, God may relent and forgive and withhold his blazing wrath so that we shall not perish."

Jonah 4:4 "But the Lord asked, 'Have you reason to be angry?'"

Is is too much to ask to have a little control in your own household?  For things to go the way you want them to?  Apparently it is.  And it's not something I should expect.  Why do we get really upset about the dumbest little things?  It's very easy to be selfish at home and forget we need to be servants everywhere we are, not just outside of our homes.  Jonah is a very short book of the Old Testement, but those few words pack a LOT of power.  Sometimes being a parent can be the most difficult job God gives you.
