Today is one of those days. It just seems whatever happens I can seem to find some kind of joy in it any way. Even with a screaming girl that is throwing a temper tantrum, No I don't enjoy a screaming child but I can find something to be joyful about in the whole situation,
Why; because when I punish her and she finally gives up I ask her why we can't throw a fit like that she tells me why with so much conviction that it and so much intensity that you know that with all heart she wants to do better. She holds me tight and hugs and gives me kisses and tells me she is sorry. Afterward she is the sweetest little girl and trys her very hardest to please me.
Have we gone thru this more then one time? Yes, we have gone thru this at least 10 times or more this past week. it gives me so much joy to be able to help her when she is young. If we teach her now her life will be so much easier once she is grown. She will be able to understand the importance of keeping ones word, being kind, listening, speaking with respect, obeying (even when one doesn't understand) treating others the way you want to be treated.
Will it take more time then this past week, Yes it will take years, and even a lifetime of choosing right from wrong but if we start when she is just two it won't be as hard to choose when she is older.
Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
Just some things that we have been working thru.
