What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Brainwashing


Photo Sharing - Video Sharing - Photo Printing - Photo Books


Last week, a few days before the 'bug' came to visit, Corynn was especially whiney, and seemed to just be unhappy with herself and everything around her and frustrated with any inabilities she had. It was SO tiresome and I was at my wits end, when it occurred to me that I ought to teach her what the bible says about a discontent spirit.

So, I made her memorize this scripture verse. "A Merry heart doeth good like a medicine, but a broken spirit drieth the bones." Proverbs 17:22

Every time she began to mumble, I would say "What does a Merry heart do?" or "What drieth the bones?" and she would start giggling and recite it. What a way to change the dynamics!

I often find myself repeating it as well...
