Friday Madness

There is nothing like waking up in the morning and hearing your kids fighting first thing. Well that set the pace for the rest of the day. They fought over everything from who is going to what choir to how they were looking at each other. After a night were Noah was up fussing because he had his shots the day before I was not in the mood. So by lunch I was fed up and I told them all so. I got dressed, prepared Noah, took Liberty and left the house. I told them get the choirs done but I was not going to stick around to listen to their madness. I needed the break, the peace! I love my children that is why I homeschool. But I do not desire their treatment not only towards themselves but towards me as well. I often wonder if their ears are open when we do family devotions.
This week we were doing Ephesians 5- and not a bit of it was sinking in. It made me just wonder why, why was I doing this every day. When I could be like every other American Mom out there and put my kids in public school and let them raise my children and instill their values in them. I would be home in a quiet house with just Noah and Liberty. Why did we sit down every night or try to every night and read scripture. To hear ourselves talk? I know children will be children, I know that they do not think like adults, but you wonder do they hear you at all?

  1. keep planting seeds...don't get overwhelemed; Satan works on the daily things in our lives to slowly, grinde us to a hault.

    Get away, get peace but, also return to the "word". Pray about the daily wisdom you need with your children.

    Love,

  2. Hang in there! Sometimes it doesn't seem like it, but they are hearing us. They probably won't tell us this until they are much, much older, though! ;-)

  3. just checking in to see how you are. I have skype set up. Let's make a phone date.

    Give me one day that would be best and I'll try my best to call that day. Also give me at least 3 options with hours to select from. My day is very unpredictable. We have a schedule but, they change it constantly.

    Love,
