I DO KNOW that this is a ME issue not a THEE issue. I need to yield myself to the Holy Spirit and show that fruit that is there...I'm just so fallen!
It started this morning during reading. We're starting to do two-vowel blends. The girls both have their short vowels down pat (I didn't want to move on until that was firm). Ingrid just doesn't pay attention (frustration rises). At first I calmly tell her, "read what is there, don't add any letters." She starts guessing a word even though it is just a letter combo like "s-a" or "s-i". She then adds in a "t" or an "m". Too much information, I know, but I just HAD to get this off of my chest and actually get away before I yelled.
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit." Galatians 5:22 - 25
