There are one or two subjects every day that have been a source of frustration. It's wearing me out and we are only on our sixth day. There has to be a change. So, I'm going to be the change I want to see. I believe the Word and what it says. I believe I have the things that I say. My children are taught of the Lord and great is their peace. They are wise and recieve correction. I train them up in the way they should go and when they are older they will not depart from it. I'm also going to make a daily confession for them to say. Things about them being trainable and teachable and receptive of that training and teaching. My oldest is a bit of a perfectionist and very very literal. If she does't know EVERYTHING right away, she feels frustrated and stupid. I hate that learning makes her feel that way. I've tried explaining to her that correction is part of learning. It hasn't worked, so I'm turning to something that WORKS, EVERYTIME. I praise God for is Word and that he keeps his promises. I praise God that he has given me the opportunity and ability to homeschool and a husband who completely supports it and the means to do it. (It aint cheap :) What a wonderful opportunity and gift I have in teaching my kiddos.
