A New Day. . . & A New Perspective

As I lay in bed last night thinking about and replaying the day in my mind, I realized I have been taking my children for granted.

Instead of wishing away these days of fighting, arguing, and them coming to me for their every need, I need to be thankful for them. The fighting and arguing means my children are able to communicate their wants and needs to others, unlike some children. By them coming to me for EVERYTHING, they are unknowingly telling me they trust me and know I will meet their needs, unlike some parents.

The Lord really worked on my heart last night before I was able to fall asleep, and I am so thankful that He was able to use His Word to rebuke me and teach me.

Today is going to be a better day!

*Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. ~Proverbs 12:18 (NIV)*
