SIBLINGS SQUABLES



Sibling squabbles. Where to begin? I have already had my fair share of the bickering, being a mom of a 13- and 11-year old. I should have recorded how many days are “good” days, when my children enjoy each other and play nicely, because chances are high there are better days then I think.

Emotions ascend mountain tops over something as simple as carrying the laundry basket upstairs when he or she wasn’t the one that brought it down to begin with. But it goes beyond simple, and feelings get hurt, and words are permanently affixed to our memories of what brother or sister said.

We must listen to the little voice God gives us that tells our thoughts whether it is something nice to do, or something not nice. It feels good and makes God happy when we’re nice. Even grown-ups have to practice this, I confess.

When there is something we want to change about ourselves but it feels too big to change alone, that is what God is there for.

When we need to overcome something, the power and necessity of prayer lasts our entire lives.
