Day 21 of 90

I'm squeaking in under the wire on this one. And it ain't going to be a pretty one.
I've been visiting my father-in-law this weekend. All in all, it wasn't a bad trip. But it's never great when visiting FIL. He can be difficult. And I had several moments where I had to bite my tongue this weekend.
Then I read about David and Saul. And it dawned on me that Saul is David's father-in-law. David had a FIL that wanted to kill him, that tried to kill him multiple times. And yet David never retaliated. He had several chances to kill Saul himself, but wouldn't.
Hmmmm, so, I guess I need to remember that when dealing with my FIL. It could be worse. But I could handle it so much better.

David's response to Saul really struck me this week too. I mentioned it in my own update. What an example!
