  1. I really appreciate this article.

    Often times, I have felt reluctant to pray when I have been angry with my husband but realised I still had to try and do tell GOD that as a result of that anger what I have say at that time is the best I can do.

    I will show this article to my husband for when he is angry with me!!!

    Thank you.

  2. Thank you Vinita and Joe. I feel so grateful for the wisdom that you have both shared over the years
    May you experience much peace and joy in 2023!
