I Cried Today

I had to discipline my 8yr old this morning for something he did that was wrong. After speaking with him I applied the rod of correction and told him we loved him.

When he left our bedroom, I lay my head on my hubby and cried. I understand then the saying that I've heard quoted that parents would sometimes say "It hurts me more than it hurts you."


Then I thought to myself, is that how much it hurts God when He has to discipline us? What do you think?

  1. Discipline never seems to get easier. Even though we know we are doing the right thing it is hard to not get caught up in the emotion of the situation. I can completely relate. Hang tough!

  2. Jenn, that happens a lot when you discipline a child - you feel worse than they do. Or sometimes it could be the complete other way around - the child is harder on themself than you could ever be.

    I wanted to stop by and see how you were doing. And I apologize for my lapse in visiting and commenting. I'm trying to get back into the blogging game. LOL. Happy Friday.
