Discipline. I didn’t like it as a child; I don’t like it as an adult. Even though I know why and understand it better, that does not mean I like it any better. Hebrews is very clear as to why God disciplines us: “…but He disciplines us for our good, that we may share his holiness, for the moment all discipline seems painful than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”

For the rest of my thoughts on this topic, please check out my other blog here.

You might be thinking, “Boy. Bill sure took the easy way out today.” Well…yes and no. Tomorrow (Wednesday) is Braden’s (our grandson) 12th birthday. Since we are unable to get there, but more importantly we would barely get to see him due to football practice tomorrow night and school on Thursday, we couldn’t see much sense in driving 4 hours for an hour peek at him. But he is off school on Friday so we plan to leave Thursday and spend the whole day with him on Friday then return Saturday morning.

So with the short week and a very busy 3 days, my priorities have to shift some to getting things done among the visits I have with various people Monday through Wednesday. My plan is to post one more time this week (the weekend) and then hopefully find my life back to normal…whatever that is. 🙂

Have a great rest of the week!

    Enjoy your time with your grandson, Bill. It is such a gift! went to see mine last week. Can’t believe how fast they are growing up. They are both taller than I am now! So glad that they will be coming home for Thanksgiving.

    I don’t like discipline either, Bill. In fact, I dislike it so much I pretend it doesn’t exist for me as an adult anymore. Instead, I have “bad days” and “things not going my way.” I think often those are more discipline and realignment for me than I care to admit.

    Man… time flies, brother.

    Glad you’re enjoying the blessings from our Father!
