Attitudes of the Farm

My little troop is all different colors.
We have all kinds of attitudes to deal with in my troop and all kinds of training.
But God says, "Robin, train up your children in the way they should go and
 when they're old they won't depart from it".
That tells me I have sinful little children that need me to train them...for their future.
 Me a mom..
I have a huge job before me and everyday I must be ready to fight for and run after
my children.

We have attitudes to deal with and... this is just it....we all have attitudes.... it's just easier for me to pick up on others attitudes then it is for me to pick up on mine. I am a mother and if I know my sheep I know when attitudes are going down hill and I should deal with them quickly and swiftly. I do most of the time. Sometimes though I look at them and think how I must look to my Father. Arms crossed, eyes directed away from Him. I'm so thankful He knows me and comes running after me when I walk away. He is my good Shepherd.
...and I'm so thankful I am His sheep, He watches over me and brings me to green pastures. So I could do no less for my little girl...I run after her heart. I pull her into green pastures and I don't leave her.
I love her and when she shows me her heart and it's full of selfishness and is unloving and unkind I know I have a lot of work ahead of me...but I don't mind. I keep feeding her from God's word and God reminds me to keep training. Always Training..

"Train up a child in the way he should go"...and so I train for the future. I train my boys to love girls.
Their girls, like me and their sisters...because later in life if I have trained them to love us they will not depart from their training. I'm teaching them to love their wives now. Flowers, kisses, and symbols of love like opening car doors, grabbing a blanket for a cold sister.. learning to pray, teaching them to study God's word and then letting them do bible time for us. I'm training...them for the day that they will have their own home and wife.

 Oh mothers, don't let a day go by that you don't remember that future homes depend on you.
 God gave you marching orders...
and He gave you a little army, if He gave you children..
So train them for battle, train them for marriage,
train them to love God with all their heart, soul, and mind.

Blessings from the training field of the farm,
