Train up a Child...WFW

Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it."

I have to say that this week has not been one of the better homeschool weeks! I know it is because I am kind of grumpy because of my ailments. I'm pretty short with everyone in the house. I've even been kicking around the notion of sending them back to public school. I feel that I am not teaching them the right way, and they are not learning. Then God spoke to my heart yesterday. I've been reading 2 Kings and came across in chapter 3 verse 7, "Now, O Lord my God, You have made Your servant King instead of my father David, but I am a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in." Now I know this is not the context of this verse but the last part where it says, "but I am a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in" really spoke to me, I need to convey to them better what I expect from them. I can not expect the children to do right all the time. I think my expectations are too high for them. Sending them back to school...wrong! Keeping them home where they belong...right!
The picture above is them doing our latitude and longitude dance I came up with so they could remember them. It was set to the music from Saturday Night Fever....LOL. After being in prayer for much of the evening yesterday today was a better day.

So awesome how God speaks to us at the moments we most need it. I love the longitude and latitude idea!
