We went for a dirve with my in-laws today. We went to a green house to get some more plants for our flower garden and vegetable garden. We ate supper out and then home again. My mother-in-law dug up some of her extra perennials for me. :o) She gave me irises, lillies, lady slippers and another kind of lily. I'm not much of a green thumb so I hope they are tough enough to survive my inexperience. lol :o)
It's after midnight now, but this was the little suggestion at the top of my blog when I started typing...
Choose your battles wisely ~ give patience where patience is due, and continually ask God for wisdom in discipline.
My son and his best friend don't get to see each other regularly because we live about 30-40 minutes apart, but they love to talk on the phone. I am constantly reminding my son that when he is done talking that he needs to check to see if anyone left a message while he was on the phone. Lately he has been forgetting to do that. It can be an hour or more before he remembers to check it. :o( My mom called earlier this week and left a message and then was worried because she knew I was sick and wondered why we weren't answering the phone or returning her call. (Mom's think the worst you know.) Again tonight he forgot to check and I only got my friend's message 1 1/2 hours after she called! So I told him that if that happens again he will not be able to use the phone for a day or so. But, now that I am thinking about it, it is also punishing his friend. What to do? I think I am going to try reminding him to check for messages when he is done talking.
I need to be patient and pray for more wisdom in my discipline. :o)
