The lessons you can learn from a 3 year old boy.
Waiting is hard, no matter what age we are. I feel at times that I look like my 3 year old does when I tell him an answer that doesn't give him what he wants/when he wants it. He looks so distraught and thinks that it will never come quick enough. Arms flailing, voice screaming, why mommy, how come!! I wonder if that is how I appear to God? Mind you I am not rolling around on the ground but in my heart and mind I am throwing a tantrum fit. Do I appear like my 3 year old when I make him sit down and put his hands in his lap? Not allowing him to get up until he says that he has self control. I can learn alot from my boy Elijah. I need self-control myself. Stop getting frustrated cause nothing is happening for me (that I can see) and others around me have it going on. Stop whining and throwing a fit and get a grip Angela. Get some self-control, breathe, relax and let go of trying to make things happen. Be still and know that I am God. He gave me the dream and He alone will make it happen. I just need to be patient, or as I tell my boys "wait nicely". Ahh...so many lessons God teaches me through my children. I hear myself telling them something and feel in my spirit God is telling me the same exact thing. Love my dudes, they are awesome. Love my Jesus!!!
