When I get discouraged by the mess in Josiah and David's room...
It all reminds me of a verse in Proverbs that says, "Without oxen a stable stays clean, but you need a strong ox for a large harvest" (14:4).
So, here's to accepting a "dirty stable" while giving thanks for my "strong oxen" and the "large harvest" that is coming in their lives! :)
(But I'm still going to strive to train them in how to keep a tidy room!) ;-)
