Sweet Like Honey

our family's journal of God at work

Worth it all


I was having Matthew do some reading today, but he thought he couldn’t do it, so he was very resistant, and I had to discipline him a few times before he would even try.  But he changed his attitude and then did very well, like I knew he would.

After I released him to go play legos he came back to me and said, “Mommy, thank you for helping me to have a good attitude.” 

As my jaw dropped to the floor, I told him how much I appreciated him telling me that.

  1. Awh! Moments like these do “make it all worth it”! What a sweet moment! 🙂 Your last post was wonderful. I have been struggling with trusting God in areas where HIS answer may not be the answer I want. Thanks for the nuggets of truth, reminders and you are so right– our sermon series is so “on the money” for MANY people! God is so kind and faithful like that! 🙂

  2. This is very sweet. Children are amazing and at times like this it just makes you all the more thankful to be at home with them to experience it.

    I love your blog!
