I threw a temper tantrum yesterday.
I did. I stomped my feet, balled up my fists and screamed to myself. Yep. I did.
It was not my proudest mom moment, as my 5 year old watched the whole ugly thing.
I shudder to think what message I sent, even though I know that it was that or strangle him :)
Today, as we are moments away from starting another potentially-frustrating day of school (potentially great as well!) I am reminded that those moments, and moments like them, are behind us and do not establish the basis for today. Thank goodness...
These words spoke to my heart this morning...
Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (NIV)
Yet I still dare to hope
when I remember this:
The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each morning.(NLT)
This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope
It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. (KJV)
...as they speak to my mind and heart this morning I am reminded that we get to start fresh today! That is a huge blessed part of being a child of God ...we get to start fresh every day!
So, here is praying for no more tantrums, from mommy or the kids ..and for a day full of God's mercies :)
May you be blessed today, full of peace and God's faithfulness...no matter what yesterday was like! :) ...welcome and thank you for visiting you ifellowshippers!
