Parenthood

Whew what a weekend! The kids all fell like dominos with the flu,  ending the weekend with us adults taking our turns with this violent and vicious flu bug. It was awful and truly humbling to find oneself one ones knees on the floor before the toilet. Unpleasant tobsay the least.

It is also terrible to watch your children both young and older suffer in misery. My kiddos ages run from 17, 14, 9 and 7. I don’t think it matters the age when your child suffers it hurts the heart. It made me think of how God hurts when he sees us suffer. Usually through our own sinful nature we disappoint our heavenly Father.

I think about how many times throughout my day I sin even with my private thoughts. How many times do I let my thoughts run to the uncharitable,  mean spirited, or selfish? I cant help but feel shame when I think about how short I actually do fall.

Thank the Lord that he forgives!
