365:238-247


Even though school has not officially started for us yet, I still need to make sure my kids don't miss their homeschooling activities...I mean really, what kind of parent would I be not bringing them to messy game day!! Forgetting about my house to deal with was pretty easy for me...Look at those sweet faces having such a blast...Lately, it's been difficult to spend quality time with our boys and they don't like it...Neither do we...Our times together are so precious and it effects my boys when they don't get it...

My oldest boy watched us pack, move, unpack, hook up, set up, and all the other things that come along with moving...After seeing me break down the other day, he gently, with glassy eyes says, "Mom, you need a day of rest".  "Oh Matthew, your so sweet seeing mom work hard on getting things done around here.  Don't worry honey I will, but not right now, there are a million things to do".  "No mom! (still with glassy eyes) GOD said so and that means you have to".  I can't imagine how hard it was for him to say that to me knowing he is telling and adult-HIS MOM what to do...So that's exactly what we all did that day! I stopped right there in my tracks, went upstairs to his room and played Battleship...We laughed and laughed because I beat his butt...

I'm thankful to the LORD for the words my son spoke to me...I'm also thankful that he is learning how to apply the Word of GOD to his life....And mine! 

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work...Genesis 2:2
