The Cowboy Way

cowboy day
[western day at school]

I hear my share of tattles and digs and mean spirited-ness. Oh do I.

I've been reminding my boys

d a i l y:
A good friend (and brother) brings attention to each others' strengths, and prays in secret for their weaknesses.

    What a beautiful reminder for your boys. My youngest two need this reminder also, of course though, don't we all?

    Thank you.

    I love the picture, adore that picture ;-)

    and that is a perfect reminder. I need to chat that daily to my children. Maybe I can also whisper it repeatedly in their ears while they sleep?

    BTW, we had a cowboy day, too. Except yours is wayyyy better. Mine was a pitiful, piddly excuse for a cowboy costume. LOL

  9. I love you. I love having friends with three boys (even if I don't have the little girl of an exclamation point at the end). :)

    (I think I've told you before, but my Owen has the same star hoodie with the purple lining = mini teenager. Love.)

  20. another mom says........amen amen amen!!!!
    Another woman says..........amen amen amen!!!!!
    another person says................amen amen amen!
    AMEN.....that's all we want for those we raise and come in contact with.....understanding of this, promote strengths, speak loudly of strengths.......pray quietly about weaknesses, be strong enough to promote someone else's weaknesses and allow those weaknesses to be there! IN the weakness is us allowing God to be our strength!!!!!!! Even for our family!
