Another Lesson

One morning last week, Davin was not on board with the schedule.  I explained to him why we were on a very tight schedule and exactly what I needed him to do.  He did not feel like doing what I asked.  I was frustrated.  I gave a big speech about how Jesus was not very happy with his behavior and that neither was I.  I went on to add that life does not revolve around Davin and maybe he needs to stop living like it does.  How many times has my Heavenly Father probably had the same thought about me?  Heather, the whole world does not revolve around you, so maybe it is time to stop living like it does. 

I learn so much by teaching my kids.

Please forgive me while I chuckle. I can just hear you all too well saying this to Davin, the tone of your voice, the volume, the matter-of-factness.

It is true. We so often live like the world is supposed to revolve around us and no matter how hard we believe it, it just refuses to happen.
