Day 7: Love Believes the Best

Day 7: Love Believes the Best

For today’s dare, get two sheets of paper. On the first one, spend a few minutes writing out positive things about each of your family members. Then do the same with negative things on the second sheet. Place both sheets in a secret place for another day. There is a different purpose and plan for each. At some point during the remainder of the day, pick a positive attribute (for each member of the family) from the first list and thank them for having this characteristic.

 [Love] believes all things, hopes all things. 1 Corinthians 13:7 If there is anything praiseworthy — meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. (I like the whole scripture)

 I wanted to share the positives I came up with on my children, Then I have to brag a bit more. Roma positive Responsible Resilient Funny Hard worker Fast learner Loving Cares deeply about her family and good friends Is trust worth Good conversation cares about people Smart Good athlete Good cook A writer Elias Positive Typically kind Good at sports Pretty resilient Great at learning languages Mostly respectful to adults (can be kind to sister)He rubs his sisters feet and cuts her toe nails He likes to go on adventures with mom He has a good memory good decoder he recognizes everybody and their cars Today was Mother's Day My kids gave me sweet dear presents of which the best was they were very kind to each other. We had a lovely day. First we had German baby pancakes filled with fruit and topped with whipping cream for breakfast. Everyone helped with breakfast and it was Delish! Then we had a great sermon about not having regrets. We actually used some of the scriptures that I read this week. The one about being slow to anger. and today's scripture of looking on things that are good and praiseworthy. Then we had I had a nap and we went to the park with the faculty for a good bye party for one of our friends. We had yummy steak and potato salad and lots of other yummy things. Elias sled down the hill and played baseball with the dog. Roma bean sat next to me and was a mama's girl. It was a great day!
