My birthday – #29!

Well friends – i have decided to start blogging again. Writing has recently been creeping up on me again…ha! What i really mean is that i’ve missed writing a lot and am just now coming bac.
Unfortunately my ridiculous eyboard is struggling.
if you haven’t noticed i have some serious typos already in this post – and i hate that!!
My comma and my cays and my i’s and my number eight do not wor.
it’s driving me nuts. But in all future posts i will simply fix the errors before i actually post. i have to go to other websites and copy/paste the letter or number that i need. it taes forever! Right now i have the “i” copied so i “ctrl v” every.single.time. that i need an i.
——(below this line all errors are fixed)—–
Today is my brthday! Last night after midnight  decided to read Psalm 29 and Proverbs 29. Proverbs 29 really blessed me. The Lord has been teaching me some of these things so t was very pertinent to my life right now!
Proverbs 29:15
The rod and reproof give wisdom,
    but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.” 
Proverbs 29:17
Discipline your son, and he will give you rest;
    he will give delight to your heart.”
Up until recently i have been attempting to ignore Benny’s (my almost 2 year old son) screaming. i simply hoped and prayed it would go away. Unless i reached my breaking point of annoyance and irritation. At that point i would simply scream back at him and threaten something insignificant. 
But apparently what he’s been searching for — and what is apparently the Word of the Lord — is discipline for his screaming! About two weeks ago – around the same time that I started praying and declaring God’s Word over him at night — I decided that when he screamed, he would get one warning and then I would bring him into his bedroom, lay him down on his sister’s bed and leave the room for ten seconds. I had always avoided doing something like this because I didn’t want to leave him there for too long or do it out of anger. But it seems that ten seconds is the perfect amount of time for him! I go back in to him, remind him not to scream and pick him. He is usually still angry and attempting to kick me or hit me at this point, but when I take him in my arms and remind him that I love him, he calms down almost immediately! This is such a difference! It’s amazing! I am so happy that I am reproving him and teaching him this way. I’ve been so reluctant because I’ve heard time out is too “harsh” or something, but it’s working for our family — and it prevents ME from getting so angry that I want to harm him! Praise God thank You Lord! 
That’s all for now, folks! Have a lovely blessed God-filled day!
