Sorrow

Today, my heart is filled with sorrow. I left the girls at home while I went grocery shopping. When I came back, I saw a horrible sight. My children were playing with other children. Apparently there is a house right next door, and they have three children, around the same ages as my daughters. The problem is, I don't know these children. Most likely, they go to public school and have ungodly influences in their lives. I simply can't handle it. I scurried the girls back into the house. I told them they are to never go outside when I am not home ever again. I have been ignoring them all day. My heart is too heavy to deal with this.

  1. I am so sorry to hear this. You must question your children immediately and find out what they may have seen or heard so that you can take steps to counteract any damage.. In the future, perhaps you could entrust their care to a godly female relative while you do your errands. I trust that you will punish their rebellion accordingly.

    1. Well there's your problem, that hardly sounds like a punishment. My children would never even think of pulling a stunt like this because they know I'd come down on them like the might Jesus himself

    2. Them girls aren't babies tier all to old for plumbing line do as your bible says and find yourself a rod. Your oldest is old enough to have an intended, she's old enough to be raising the younger ones not running around like some happy heathen.

    3. They weren't supposed to be running around like Happy Heathens. They were supposed to be inside reading their bibles. Nataleigh was in charge, but clearly she didn't do her job properly. The rod must be used.

    4. Oh my word! You leave your EIGHT YEAR OLD in charge while you go to the grocery store and expect her to act like an adult? You are crazy. You are abusive if you are locking your children in a closet. Somebody must turn you in for abuse.

    5. Ha! They were supposed to be in the house reading their bibles, but only two of your kids are at reading age. So Matthew got his bible, opened it up and read it? Uh huh....sure!

      I find that very interesting. And after hearing a sermon on Matthew 28:18-20, I'm wondering if, maybe they WERE reading their Bibles and were at that passage. And decided that they need to put that into practice by going to the neighbors to make disciples. Here's a good chance to get to know the neighbors, though, unfortunately, your witness to them may be marred if they know you left your kids alone. Good opportunity to confess and show that Christians aren't perfect and God is perfecting you slowly.
      Aren't you glad they weren't reading Matthew 5:30?

  2. What on earth made you think it was OK to leave young children at home alone like that? Maybe they should be reprimanded, but your husband should have punished YOU!

  3. The horror! Your children associated with other? Whatever will you do? Perhaps they need a bubble! That way you can shelter them from all of the horrible things in the world.
