OK. This post is really for me – a place to return again and again so I can remember that God does work in the hearts of my boys! So often I focus on where they need to be and what they need to improve, instead of celebrating where they’ve come from. This week God has really worked in each one of their lives. So here’s my Blessing Bucket Blog!
Nathan – see A Mommy Moment
Michael – gave up the last piece of dessert. If you know Michael, you know what a sacrifice that was for him! What was neat about this situation was that he and David were arguing over it. I said, “Who’s going to do things God’s way?” and Michael immediately gave the dessert to David. I told Michael he really is sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading.
David – has really been struggling with his attitude not just at home, but in his PE class. When I picked the boys up this week, the coach came over to tell me how amazed he was at David’s behavior. David had really been encouraging other kids not to have bad attitudes or take games too seriously. That, in and of itself, is a blessing bucket post. However, the fact that David had the good attitude when many around him did not made this blessing a bit more special.
Well, I’d love to continue to wax eloquent about my 3 sons, but I can’t hear myself think because World War 3 is happening all around me! (You didn’t think they were perfect, did you?! :-)) All the more reason to capture these moments – they’re not as plentiful as those that need correction!
Do you have any Blessing Bucket moments to share?
