What would a day be like to have cooperative and joyful children? No whining or crying? I don't know :) I did plenty of whining and crying today too, so they aren't totally to blame.
Still, I must be doing something right because Alexa and Leiah get so excited about doing 'cleaning chores'. Basically they equate that with getting to use the spray bottle :) Unfortunately Leiah sprayed herself in the eyes :(
Anyways, you all are right, I probably am way too hard on myself. All I can see is what I'm not doing or where I am lacking. I let the cares of the world choke out the Word sometimes because I feel so busy and don't enjoy the process.
I started this post yesterday, but it never got finished. Anyways, I realize that my own attitude yesterday was grouchy and just plain ole stinky. Honestly, what do I have to complain about? I have a nice home, plenty of food, a nice car, time saving appliances, lots of extras, a loving husband and beautiful girls. Not to mention I know the Lord intimately- thank God! I am so so thankful I am not lost.
Anyways, somehow I have got to figure out how to be joyful and kind when I don't feel like it. My feelings control too much of how I act. I am being selfish. I'm going to have to learn to recognize when my flesh is kicking in and how to stop it.
I have lots to blog about soon- the upcoming plans my husband and I have to become less dependent on the store, how we are building up our health, clarification of that saying I hate- "God won't give you more than you can handle". That one- got new insight.
And I want to report that I truly am a southern girl- yesterday for dinner I made fried chicken (in the oven) with gravy, fried yellow squash, rice for the gravy (I know, no biscuits or mashed taters) and homegrown tomato-basil salad. That's not southern either, but the fresh tomatoes at every meal is. LOL.
