My Walk Monday

Hey hey, I'm posting late today... we are having some technical difficulties here (meaning I got a new mattress for Mother's Day yesterday and my hubby let me nap the day away! :o) Thank you for being so understanding.

My walk last week was a difficult one. I'm still getting attacked over here as far as temptation to be angry, impatient and mean to my kiddos (but I won't have it!) JJ and B.Boy have been so disobedient lately, JJ is so mean to her brother, kicking him off of things that she wants to play with and bossing him around! It drives me nuts... but they are doing well so far today (PRAISE GOD!).
They also did well for Joshie when he had them all by himself on Friday night while I stayed with our High school girls from church for an over-niter at my friend's house. (Our first event with the Youth Group at our new church :o)
It went well, we had pizza, a small scattered message, we went bowling, played Mario Kart and Guitar Hero on the Wii, we watch Enchanted then went to bed.
I love the fact that my Bible Study each week ALWAYS has something to help me with just what I am going through, this week some things that touched me were...
  • Selfishness - is my gain more important than someone else's loss?
  • God can use ANYTHING for good - Romans 8:28
  • Yes I received Salvation, but I must seek Satisfaction with a daily filling of the Holy Spirit.
  • We struggle not against flesh and blood (my family and children), but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. - Ephesians 6:12

Now for this week's Question: If you went to youth group when you were younger what was your favorite memory as far as events go?
My Answer: I used to love the random trips to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts after Wednesday night service, in the church bus with our Youth Pastor also being one of the church bus drivers! :o) Even though I didn't really care for their Doughnuts much I LOVED the fellowship!

I just completed my post for My Walk Monday.

I’m glad that you were able to get more rest. Honestly, I didn’t get up until 11:00. And it’s just too dog gone nice out today, so I’m canceling homeschool, too. We’ll have to work extra hard tomorrow, since there’s less than a month left.

It’s great to hear that you got to get away for an over-night party - probably just the break you needed. My kids can be mean to each other, too. I can’t believe the hurtful things my pre-teens say to each other. I think that a lot of times they are just meaningless words and they know that they really love each other. It helps me knowing that other Christian families are struggling with this, too. However, I wish that I had done more to stop it when they were younger, because now they are in a habit of saying mean things and it’s hard to get them to stop.
