I have diagnosed my problem with not blogging more often:

technology, especially with cell phones and facebook, has advanced past my original purpose of doing this blog. If I am going to keep it up, which I want to, I have to find a new purpose. so...

A week or two ago we were having a tough time with Owen...very disobedient, stubborn, disrespectful, insubordinate behavior. I will place much blame on too much sugar consumption at a birthday party...( I have an undocumented and unproven theory but I have seen it within the two days after a sugar rush...he repeats this behavior...proof? )

However, I cannot allow sugar to be the all-time scapegoat (or how much fun would life be without marshmallow peeps???).
So...I was in church Easter Sunday after an Easter basket of no candy and wondering what else to do.
Prayer. The obvious answer.
Anytime I have been in tears over how to discipline my child(ren) when he is exhibiting behavior that he seems to not be able to control, I pray.

How could such a sweet, wonderful boy be so bad?
Hmmmm...he does want to be Spiderman when he grows up...talk about stubborn: he "convinced" us that he should wear this to the family Easter get-together that same day...
Got to love him!
So, back to the purpose of my blog.
I was wondering if I could put on here...to the masses (my family)...
that I need help praying...
I know many of my family pray for my kids daily, but if I used this as a way to post praises and requests, it may help direct those prayers...
If no one ever reads this and no one else ever prays about the things I do...that is okay.
But...would this work to get a few more warriors standing behind and building that hedge around my children? Protecting them from the blows of the world so that they get the chance to learn what is good and right and pure and lovely...

We have so much to be thankful for so I will start with that...on my next post.
Until then...
God bless you in all the ways you seek and trust in HIM!
Happy Easter...a bit late but not too late to celebrate the resurrection!

I believe that I will try to start to do the same with my blog. Maybe we could call it our "prayer blog"? I love you for all of your beautiful ways, sister!
