I’m currently in California enjoying a visit with family. The theory is that I’ll have more time to blog while I’m here.
For a light and painless post, I’d like to consider all the challenges that I used to think were tackle-once jobs. Instead, I find myself dealing with them in cycles: challenge, meet the challenge, resolved challenge, challenge again
- Obedience (in many forms!)
- Screaming (when stuck or frustrated– no other children involved)
- Screaming (interpersonal anger)
- Cleanup slowness
- Bedtime challenges
- Eating challenges
Can you think of any more? Isn’t it amazing that with such a short list, we still can’t get a definitive how-to list? That’s on purpose I think. Wouldn’t we depend on a book if the answers could be found in a book? I know I would. And eventually I’m figuring out that God doesn’t just want us to go to him for a how-to resource; He wants fellowship, primarily.
