Lord, help me remember the emotional needs of my children before I remember my to-do list for the day. Before getting frustrated, remind me Jesus that my son is just seeking my attention, and sometimes the only way to get my attention in the midst of my busyness is to misbehave. Help me be proactive and prepared to balance my time and affection with him and getting house work done. I know you are more pleased with a well-loved child than a clean house. Thank you Jesus for the reminder of Your abundant grace. Forgive me for my tantrums, disobedience, attitude that I show You at times.
