Hard Day and Learning to Love

Homeschooling can be hard. Yesterday was one of THOSE days. I knew it was going to be one of those days the minute those feet hit the floor. Mom intuition didn't let me down. This morning it began again . . . I put an immediate stop to it before it escalated into chaos.

The boys are much quieter now . . . They were allowed to sit quietly by themselves without doing anything for a while. Now they are involved in a writing project. It is a thought provoking one . . .

It begins with writing Bible Verses about Loving Your Brother. There are a number of them. The second part of the assignment - Write ten things you love about __________ . They must write ten things for each brother. Lastly, the must write ten things they like about themselves. It is lengthy, but needed today.

There are too many instances of people thinking only of themselves. I want my boys to focus on Jesus and model themselves after Him. Loving those around them without regard for their own needs and wants.
