Lessons in Self Control

Collin taking advantage of one of the particularly warm days recently.

The boys and I exited from church. As we meandered across the parking lot and into our car, their behavior began to unravel. First, one boy snatched a book from another brother's hand. Then, angry words were exchanged. Finally, threats were uttered. I raised my voice in a volume only appropriate for a crowded nightclub. I sighed and glanced through my windshield at the church's steeple just inches away.

Caleb, engrossed in his own book, yells, "Mom, did I tell you Sunday School was about self control today? They suggested taking deep breaths."

I busted out laughing and thanked Caleb for the tips.
