Genesis 12:2 The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."
Wayne likes house to be neat and inviting, he's such a sweetie. So we do Flylady around these parts and have modified it to suit us. So once a week usually on a Thursday (the day after Hope Group) we turn on the jams (93.3 FM) and get down and get holy. The girls clean baseboards, window sills, pledge things, sort all the laundry in the house, organize things (if its their room), sort socks, wash walls, and cabinet fronts......oh how they they multiply the work completed! We get a lot done while we laugh, sing, dance and sometimes discipline. Also, there is much less squabbling because they are becoming used to working with each other.
They little one is learning to take wise counsel from each other and to give it to each other! (Even if it's just "Parker, pinks go in the pink and red pile" or "Peyton work or you're gonna get the vinegar!").
Proverbs 10:26As vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes, so is a sluggard to those who send him.
So hopefully, when they are older they will not be scoffers (all kinds of bad thing happen to scoffers like getting sucked into cracks and having the earth closed on your head...not good, no not good at all), but able to identify, accept & give wise counsel (even to/from their peers)!
Proverbs 19:20Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise.
Now I am not going to lie and say the training process was easy but now that we are on the up slide. I can see that it was well worth it! I hope this encourages everyone to get those kids cleaning, advising & loving one another! Ohh..I almost left out the best part......after we finish the kids get to eat what ever snack they want as long as it has little to no nutritional value...they usually pick the house favorite 'Little Debbie's'! But today we are going to make Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!
Psalm 34:8Taste and see that the LORD is good...
