I have come to the conclusion, through deductive reasoning, that our little lying problem (along with several other new behavior problems) popped up quite suddenly, around two weeks ago. Right after a phone call from the director of the orphanage called to let us know her and William would be coming for a visit in March. I mentioned it to William, he wasn’t to sure about things, but thought that it would be fine to see Uncle William.
Then severe behavior problems ensued.
I’m not so sure.
I wished this helped my irritation at his misbehavior.
It does, but not enough.
After all, we discussed at length how they would just be coming to visit, then going back to Uganda..with out him.
Unless all of this nonsense is so that we will send him back with them????
Oh, doesn’t that just make me feel all warm and fuzzy.
On a more heart warming and happy note.
We sing a song in church called The Father’s Love, it’s a wonderful song about the Father’s Love for us and our adoption in Christ.
You can listen to it HERE.
We were singing it in church the other day. Marissa was beside me singing and clapping her little heart out. When she pulled on my dress to get my attention.
With a big huge grin on her face she says, “Mommy , I yuv dis song. It my favorite, cause dis is what happen to me when you comed to Afrika!”
Now if that doesn’t really warm my heart.
Oh, how I long for the day, when they realize that it was their Heavenly Father that sent us all that way to Africa.
What celebration it will be when they realize, their adoption as our children pales in comparison to their adoption in Christ.
