What We’re Working On This Week
David— still getting to the bottom of how he thinks, getting him to talk about the SS lesson is a challenge, teasing his sisters (knowing when to stop, how to discern the right time to tease, etc.), still wanting to discover what he’s thinking about salvation.
Bethel— working through the stress of new environment (she’s like her mommy and doesn’t like surprises), working on some lapses in whining and obedience, being slow to anger
Laurel— working on whining and obedience, being slow to anger.
One of the advantages of living in a small space is that we have lots of opportunities to practice love, giving preference to one another, treating others like we want to be treated, and so on. When every child has his own room and lots of space, it’s easy to think everyone gets along when in reality, they’re just living separate lives. Keeping them busy also makes a difference in their attitudes.
That’s all for now. Hopefully, we’ll be in permanent housing soon and I’ll have my candy thermometer again. It’s time for a candy making day!
One of the military spouse I was talking with last weekend commented “I love being in a new place. There are few commitments and you don’t know anyone, so you tend to slow down and see things you might normally miss.” I thought that was a great perspective. I was interested to notice how that one positive comment encouraged me so.
