All About Me

All Good Things Are Inspired By God

We had our last day of All About Me theme at school today and we couldn’t be prouder of our little one’s accomplishments. From name writing to memory verses to poem memorization to singing hymns to sounding out words and building words–it all happened this month!!! The day Noah just chimed right in with me on our You Are Very Special poem blessed me. The day Miss Sheila, AKA Mamama (Tayler’s grandma), was very impressed by all the kindergarten level work that Tayler can do at Centers encouraged me. The way that David has matured in multiple ways seemingly overnight has blown me away. Plus, we just had SO much fun running through the trees, cooking pancakes, painting and drawing ourselves, and sharing the ways that we are special with each other! Thank you God for all that you did in September!!! All good things in Little Lambs are inspired by the Holy Spirit.

My Starlight, Starbright

Miss Sheila, Miss Afton, and I took the opportunity to bless our children in Circle time like Jesus did in the Bible story “Jesus Blesses the Children”. We laid hands on them and spoke blessings for them to grow in wisdom and stature with man and God, to learn knowledge, to enter their prophetic destinies, to shine like stars in the universe holding out the Word of Life. Tayler’s eyes sparkled after her blessing and she declared, “I am a star!” I reminded her that I called her my star student last year in Little Lambs and she nodded in recollection. It was a shining moment.

Honestly, my Little Star has been a little dim these last few weeks, as we have been going through a lot of testing and sorting out why we need to obey Miss Lynn. It even started to feel like it was a test to prove the very depths of our love. I knew that a deeper understanding of our relationship was dawning inside her as she asked me some hard questions. “Why do you need to punish me?” she asked one day on time out. I love you and want you to be a sweet, obedient girl. “Why can’t I ask why?” she asked, always with very squinty eyes. Some things require simple obedience without asking why. “But my mommy doesn’t do that”, “But my mamama lets me writes “r’s” from the bottom up”, and other “buts” were daily challenges. I kept helping her to recall a past memory verse, “Obey your parents and teachers in the Lord, for this is right. Ephesians 6:1”. She was also questioning my love because she mistakenly thought that those who love her don’t punish her. I am punishing you because I love you, its my job to train you to be obedient and if I don’t, I am not loving you. The Bible says that God punishes those He loves too.

After a couple weeks going on like this, the battle in the spirit for her heart was heating up, and I was feeling worn. Actually, what I kept seeing was my own face in the mirror. I knew some of her behaviors were bothering me because they were mirroring something still ugly in myself. Tayler’s strong side was revealing a struggle for power within myself. I kept thinking, this wouldn’t even phase Miss Cherie, calm and cool, able to just smile through her way through a 3 year old telling her what to do!! Well just when you are on the verge of exhaustion, and after a weekend of praying on it, God always comes in to the rescue. This week was a whirlwind of accomplishment, and God brought opportunity for Tayler to remember that she is a star, that she is loved and has purpose. And after Circle time she burst out, “I LOVE YOU Miss Lynn!” What a gift it is to shepherd and speak blessings over the lives of these precious Little Lambs.

Tayler Shining!

Tayler shocked us all by whipping her name out in seconds with no help, and no visual example to reference. Way to go Tay Tay!
