“If a sudden jar can cause me to speak an impatient, unloving word, then I know nothing of Calvary love.
For a cup brimful of sweet water cannot spill even one drop of bitter water, however suddenly jolted.”
~ Amy Carmichael
Next to my love of lists comes my love for a good star chart. It goes right along with all my other quirky organizational tendencies. I was inspired by some fellow blogger charts...so, WE decided to use fun star charts to train our behavior for the month of February. All of us...Loverbrains, Emmer-bean, Ca-Lubby and ME!
This Amy Carmichael quote really hit me in my core as I was determining what to focus on changing first. We decided to focus/meditate on Proverbs 15:1, "A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger." I figure if you're going to change, it should be focused specifically on God's Word, right?
Determining the kid's goal wasn't really all that hard...OBEY RIGHT AWAY! Ephesians 6:1, "Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right." Because...if it's delayed it's not truly obedience. This is hard work on our part too...how do you spell C.O.N.S.I.S.T.E.N.C.Y!?
I so want to be the cup of sweet water that spills over God's love...His ultimate, CALVARY love...
To see our star charts head over to where I'm determining to be MomE & Loving It!
