hold me to the sky

This one, this little man has been giving me fits lately. My will has been tested time and time again. He has my stubborn streak and he can fit for hours. We are still feeling around for a discipline that is a good fit for him and us. In the meantime we are just trying to stay sane!

This morning he climbed in my lab while we were playing on the floor. He just wanted to be there being loved by his mom. These days and moments are fleeting, both the good and the bad.

This week in bible study we talked about times in our lives when a scripture verse just came to us and this was one of these moments. As I looked on the precious little boy these words came to mind.

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."
James 1:17

My son is not perfect, but he is definately a gift from God! God, please help me remember that in the midst of the trials of parenting him.
