Training Children & Learning Patience {Weekend Reflections}

  I pray you are blessed by these wonderful reads.

After the Sunset by tooblessedtobestressed, on Pix-O-Sphere Ever Feel Like a Referee? by Pam of Doorposts

"Teaching our children to obey God’s instructions when faced with their own sins and the sins of others will prepare them for godly relationships for the rest of their lives."

The Mystery of Child Training: Where To Begin? by Sally Clarkson of I Take Joy

"Training is constant instruction, interference with immature and inappropriate behavior, consequences of some sort, and modeling or requiring a correction of that behavior, with constant attention to the relationship."

When You're Finding It Hard to Be Patient by Ann Voskamp of A Holy Experience

"How can I be patient in the pain of now?

And it strikes me, an epiphany over the fry of bubbling pancakes, “Love is only patient if it’s first grateful for what is.

When I am not patient?  My failure to love is first a failure to be grateful for who people are right now."

 

I hope you are blessed this weekend, friends!
