"My name's Woody."
"There's a snake in my boot."
"You're my favorite deputy."
Sometimes I think I have a little white ring my kids pull. Especially when it comes to those challenging lessons of self-control ...
"Please take your thumb out of your mouth."
"Time to turn off the Wii."
"Please stop doing handstands while we read."
"Please don't scream at Mommy."
Unfortunately, I know that I do the same thing to God. Day after day, I wrestle with my own issues of self-control and day after day God speaks to my heart ...
"Stop and pray."
Thanks, God, for not being worn out with my string pulling. And help me to be calm and consistent with my kids, too.
"Father, help my children not to be like
many others around them, but let them
be alert and self-controlled in all they do."
I Thessalonians 5:6
