Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Discipline

Well lately I have been really struggling with my children and the way they behave. I know whenever we have a new baby things seem to go a little hay wire but this time I feel like it has been really bad. I know that one of our problems is that we have not been in the word everyday. Isn't it neat to look at children and see when they lack discipline you can see it in their behavior, and when you look at adults who lack discipline you can also see it in their behavior. Well I have come to the conclusion that I have been lacking in many areas and it also is effecting my children. I do need to be more consistent with them but I also need to be more consistent with my Lord. When I do both these things my house runs more smoothly. So through these last three weeks I can now see that God is teaching me to be more consistent, especially with him. I will be working on this and I will let you know how things are going.

I guess my kids are not the only ones who need some discipline in their lives right now. I'll let you all know who figures it out first the kids or Mom.

First of all, you figured it out first, because you are blogging about it. But, like I said, I believe that you already have discipline down, it is just getting back to it and being stern about it. I have had those months. The key is consistancy. Love ya and Levi is so beautiful and so are the girls. Love Tanya

I totally understand! I have lacked it in my life lately too and it takes time and practice to get back into the groove! You'll do it, you always do!

This is so true! Whenever I am spending time with the Lord, my whole house runs smoother. It is seen in my heart to my husband and children.
