Joshua, took a picture of me. He said, "We don't ever see you playing a game on dad's phone".
This past weekend Annette and Josh helped their father paint an apartment that needs to be finished by the first of March. My husband and the apartment manager where pretty impressed with how well they painted. The apartment manager commented that they paint a lot better than some adults she knew.
Lupe is a good teacher. One of the many things I love about my husband is he will do the job right and that's what he teaches his children. If he makes a mistake he learns from it, redoes the job and doesn't make the same mistake again.
He teaches the children not only to do their best but go above and beyond.
I must say, he's a good man and I'm so happy he's my husband and I'm his wife (big smile).
My verse for the day, week, month or however long it takes.
12 As God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. 13 Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God. 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Someone very dear to me suggested I find a verse and cling to it. I'm not so sure this one is it but it does remind me what I have to do. I normally don't find it hard to forgive someone. I know God is watching and He will take care of the situation (My God is so BIG, so BIG and so STRONG......) but every once in a while my flesh wants to take over. I just have one word that explains how I feel right now. Numb. I guess I'm tired of people thinking that just because my family is kind that we are weak.
Like my father always says, "Don't take kindness for weakness".
