GOOD day!!

Its my nature to be grouchy, but I have to make a choice
to have a
great attitude no matter what comes my way!
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, kindess, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control."
Galations 5:22

A Product of Confession

"Do you think we can get through the day without yelling at eachother?" I honestly asked my son this question last night at bed time. WOW. We have had a rough few days at our house. I have a slush of thoughts going on in my head about this.

Allow me download these bits and pieces, in no particular order.
We launched 7th grade homeschool. This is certainly why things have been rough.
I have a preteen son. Enough said.
We defined several math terms this week. One being: Factor x Factor = Product
I have had to repent ALOT this last week.
Mom x Flesh = The need to repent/confess
We also launched two seniors and a 5th grader this week. This is also why things might have been a bit rough.

Bottom line, we have started a new week. All forgiven. New graces. All anew. BUT I have been thinking about how I am a product of confession. And really, it not an awful thing, for I worship God, not myself. He is enough, what He did was enough. I am in Him and He makes me new. I am trusting what His word says is true.

Yet even now, say the Lord, 
return to me with all your hearts, 
with fasting, with weeping, and with sorrow;
tear your hearts and not your clothing.
Return to the Lord your God, 
for He is merciful and compassionate
very, patient, full of faithful love, 
and ready to forgive. 

 Joel 3:12-13
