Lesson learned the past few days:

Align CenterSame thing I learn every year when the kids start school.....that I can't protect them from the germs no matter how much I try. They've only been at school for two weeks and already I have one with sore throat, sniffles and cough. BLECH!

On my mind:
My kids not feeling too good, they're well enough to go to school but I just hope they get better soon. I hate seeing them not well.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they come from your desires that battle within you? You want something but don't get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
James 4:1-3
