|Liberty taking care of 'Baby Ben'|
|Little kids turn on the trampoline|
Here's the image: Me in a skirt, tights and boots sprawled face first on my neighbors front lawn with the dog staring at me with my chicken hanging out of his mouth. By this time I was quite mad, and I knew the dog now thought we were playing a game. Why, would someone be yelling and kicking at you if they were playing, I'm not sure, but clearly he was playing. I fell a few more times and succeeded in putting grass stains on the knees of my tights. Jake got the chicken and I corralled the rest of the flock to keep them from harm.
Thankfully, Jess saw that I was (cough, cough) otherwise occupied and rescued the burgers from demise.
I expect when I have a new baby that I am going to have to get up often and feed the baby. When I no longer have a newborn, I expect to sleep all night. I am quite upset when I have to get up.
See, I want them to do their work, but don't think I have to do mine (training them). Mostly, this is just a reminder to myself that we are all sinners and we all need grace. My job is to teach my children in all areas. If I expect to correct them, I can do it with a much better attitude. If it is clear what is expected then they can do their job better.
My verse for the week:
For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve,
and to give his life as a ransom for many.
I am going to be intentional in serving my family and expecting to have to correct them.
Please pray for me.
