Meekness is a Fruit of the Spirit -Day 24

This guy had surgery yesterday morning, so most of yesterday we hung out on the couch playing sequence and then re-watching "Mom's Night Out".We also started a new read aloud, "Calico Bush", by Rachel Field which ties in nicely with our history studies and provided a few more quiet moments with the children.  

As women we can get so busy managing our children, that we forget to just hang out with them, so for me it was a beautiful excuse to slow down and relax with my kids. 

Colossians 3:12-15 KJV"Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful."

Our children grow up so fast, and we can never regain lost moments with them. Moments that we could be using to teach them about how much God loves them, listen to their dreams, or instruct them in how to live.

When we spend all our time distracted, and lately I am very guilty of this, we lose valuable time that we could be sowing into their lives. This intense period where we are trying to keep our marriages healthy, keep our homes sanitary and meet the needs of our children at the same time, will be over all too soon. By the grace of God, our efforts in raising our children well, will have given them a heavenly start in life.
