It's Gonna Be a LONG Day

The same attitude that characterized yesterday is vividly apparent this morning in both children. They are both in their corners holding out on me. Someone showed me yesterday that these guys are used to winning battles of endurance. I made a change, and they don't like change and so they plan on holding out until things get back to "normal". Except their idea of normal is skewed. Missy is blatantly defiant - with a smile on her face hoping sweetness will mask the agenda. (A real a conundrum).  Buster is devious and frowny but quiet and determined.

I know. I am not a mind reader. It's just that for nearly 11 months I have been dealing with the same or similar scenario over and over again. One kind of figures out what is going on after awhile.

I've been praying for their souls. What else can I do?


The sun is shining and I woke up feeling great!

Praying for you.

May the joy of the Lord be your strength today.

"I will go out with joy and be led forth in peace."
