Mean Mommy Award

Proverbs 29:17 tells us, "Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul." My father-in-law calls this the Mean Mommy Award verse. You know, when you are being a tough mom instead of a pushover. I like to think of it as a reward for consistant training. Either way it reminds me to not give up and stay focused. And I will "reap if I faint not."

The other night after finishing his consquences for certain actions, Snipp gave me a gift. It was a BEST MOM award complete with various handdrawn colored balloons. I often feel like I am struggling as a mom, but I guess the Lord chose to use my "corrected son" to encourage me to keep striving to be the best mom I can be.

Those whispers of love from our Heavenly Father, through our children are so precious. He whispered love and encouragement through my children this week too!

Thank you for sharing.
