Larks learned a new trick.
Grammy started teaching her and Vikki completed the training and now she has decided scissors are the coolest thing ever. She has carried them around for the past three days . . . first cutting the paper given her and then moving on cutting her siblings papers as well. We have really tried to stress what papers we should cut and what we shouldn't, but at some point we know temptation will arise and the inevitable may come - the haircut. We actually have a couple t-shirts that say "I cut my own hair," but I am not excited about that becoming a reality.
Temptation comes. It does for all of us.
Jesus reminds us in Matthew 26:41, "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
May we also be watching and praying that WE don't fall into temptation. God also encourages us to "Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand." Ephesians 6:13
Stand firm my friends and be careful with scissors!
