You know what I love??? I love when you see your labor pay off!
I love that FINALLY, after diligent training, I can say, "Okay gentlemen, we need to clean the house." And now...yes folks...it happens...they clean and they clean well!
It occurred to me some time ago how much parents expect and punish for...even though they have never taken the time to TRAIN their children in how to do what it is the parents want done!
It's ridiculous. It's frustrating. It's exasperating!
Praise God I got the revelation!
It's not easy to train. It's not convenient. BUT, it is necessary if you ever want peace and success!
I am so proud of my three sons! They are some really, really great boys! I have watched them mature so much. Yes, we have more to learn, but wow...we are making progress.
Tonight, I hosted a baby celebration for a couple women in the church. The boys helped me and had the house perfect and ready by 11:30...so we headed to the pool!
When we got home, they moved chairs upstairs, helped set things up, helped the lady who arrived first, made their own dinner...off they went to my sis-in-law's house...came back, moved stuff back, took the trash out, got showers, teeth, and meds done...called Dad to pray and the oldest was reading the youngest to sleep by the time I got out of the shower!
People...THAT is a nice day. A family playing and working together to benefit everyone! It gives me inspiration to keep doing what God has told me to do! I may not see the payoff for years to come, but I believe God is showing me that if I stay diligent, it WILL come.
