My New Favorite Verse

I am certain that no one out there will be able to relate to what I am about to say. But bear with me. Today, my kids were cranky, moody, naughty, and just annoying. They were bickering constantly because *gasp* "She talked to me!" "He looked at me!" He this, she's that, and on and on! And yes, this was all before school. Oh Happy Day. Clearly they didn't get the memo that today is Friday, and that Friday is a good thing, and we need to wake up happy because its Friday! Nope. They didn't get that message. And by the time I had to hear from my poor, abused son, that he couldn't believe that I would make him eat that nice hot breakfast with biscuits, sausage, and cheese, (where you can you go wrong with those items?! And no eggs! He hates eggs!) that I made for them, instead of just letting him eat a bowl of cold cereal, I decided it was devotion time. I opened up NIrV Kid's Book of Devotions to today's date and behold! this verse: Children, obey your parents in everything. That pleases the Lord. THANK YOU, JESUS! Jackson honestly said to me after I read it slowly with a huge grin and then read it again just to make sure they heard me, "You are making that up! It doesn't say that!" And I politely said "Colossians 3:20" and his face fell. So I said it once more, just for emphasis. That's the kind of good mom that I am. He then went and found a notebook to write it down. And this was after he devoured his delicious breakfast made by his favorite mom. Yeah, that's right. God was on my side today, point 1 for mom. ;)

Score for the mama!!! I loved that blog - as that is something I have never experienced being annoying on a perfectly blissful Friday morning. Ha ha. I think you score an extra point - 1 for the verse and 1 for being a great example to your pals on having insight to open His Word when the striving was hitting a peak!! You were an example to me today - will remember that come Tuesday morning, yes ma'am, I will!!! Thanks to you for that - praying for a happy weekend for you and your family!
