Yesterday we had "Little School", the pre-K homeschool group we go to once a month. There are days when I think:
We let them watch too much TV, we aren't diligent enough about showing them Jesus, we are so undisciplined, we aren't building their character. . . .
And then we have a day like yesterday. I was worn out, PMS, looking every second of my almost 45 years, and we have a little exercise at school where the kids had an opportunity to wash each others feet like Jesus washed the disciples feet. Samuel got his feet in the tub first. When no one else stepped up, his usually remote sister kneels down
Then, after she was done, I had to hold Samuel back from washing everyone's feet! Here was the project we were doing that needed "feet washing", sooooo glad I had my roots done the day before!
Then Samuel's washes his sisters feet
Very careful to get every toe
Then later that day, I was sitting at the table and Samuel was "yayaing" in my ear as he had been doing ALL DAY and I said, "Honey, mommy is very tired", like I thought that might slow him down. Well, not exactly, but he put his hand on my arm and said "God, please heal mommy, she is tired and doesn't feel well, in Jesus name, Amen". . . . . . . . . . . I was undone. I have heard God say to me more than once that He would fill in the gap, He would provide the increase for my children, and still I question "Will they have a servants heart?", "Will their hearts break for what breaks the heart of God?" Yes, and amen.
