War Paint


A few weeks ago Squirrel got a hold of Possum with her pretty fingernails. Needless to say, her Daddy cut those pretty fingernails and as her punishment she hasn't been able to have her nails painted for the past few weeks. We are trying to get the scars cleared up and Possum is having to wear his "war paint". When I put the scar cream on Possum Squirrel wanted to know what I was doing. Joel and I took this time to remind her about what she had done so she wouldn't be tempted to do it again.
Sometimes we have to be reminded in our own lives about the mistakes we have made so we aren't tempted to do them again. Wednesday night in Patch Club the verse the kids were learning was Matthew 26:41 "Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." We have to watch and pray every day that we won't fall into old or new traps. Squirrel has to be reminded of her mistake of hurting her brother and we have to be reminded so we don't fall again. I'm praying for you today!
