Well, we picked up our son yesterday after he'd been away at church camp for a week. It was his first time away from home when he wasn't staying with family. We missed him terribly and are so happy to have him home safe and sound.
As you may already know, we are a homeschooling family. So, we are together A LOT. Sometimes all that "togetherness" can cause friction...okay...screaming, slamming doors and crying. Add that to the fact that both kids are entering those lovely years of changes and we've got quite the atmosphere for sibling squabbles. Ephesians 4:2 will be a verse that we will become well acquainted with this year. I often talk with the kids about being patient with one another, but I don't think I've ever focused on the first part of the verse where it says to "be completely humble." It makes perfect sense. If your heart attitude is one of humility, being patient should be the natural response to less than desirable behaviors. Praying your week is filled with peace and beauty!
