Use your words child when you cry I know that

must I tell you how I tear my hair out
ing bloody murder ain’t

Give me patience Lord I haven’t asked you for much
Use your words child no not the ones daddy said the other day remem-
he told you those are not nice
It’s just that daddy was kind of angry
oh I get it

We’ll use “our” words
did I tell you how you’re the answer to the prayer your mommy and I prayed
let’s find some pictures of your mommy when she was little like you
how much alike the two of you are
Sure we can read some stories
We’ll read some words
maybe we’ll learn some togeth-
that would be fun

I recently learned that the Hebrew word for ‘patience’ literally means ‘long nose’. Somehow it has been helping me in situations where I get impatient, to think of myself having a long nose… 🙂 that somehow dissipates impatience.
All the best with those mealtimes. 🙂
I like that. I will place it in my toolbox and use it liberally. 🙂
Very thoughtful, I am greatly enjoying your writing and direction God’ is taking you.
Thank you so much, Penny.

Thank you, Meggie. Somewhere I have a photo of my daughter in her high chair with chocolate shake all over her head. That’s my favorite word picture.
