I’m doing well – 2 days and 2 posts (it will probably end here).
I just received The E-Myth in the mail and started reading it almost immediately. It’s a book by Michael E. Gerber about business, and because I respect Abandon Films, and they said I should read it, I am. Best quote so far:
“Because my experience as taught me only too well that end points in the development of an extraordinary business are instantly replaced by beginning points.”
I dare say every good parent has that down by now. For parenting, great parenting, requires a constant reexamining of each child’s spiritual, emotional, social, physical, etc change. And that change in the child is the “beginning point” in the parent/child relationship.
Now don’t get me wrong – I am not talking about child-centered parenting; rather I am referring to the fact that God has created each child to be unique, and that the parent (whether the child is biological or adopted it doesn’t matter) must see God’s work in the child’s life in order to be used by God to train that child. This is opposed to the “all kids are alike” parenting flaw. A parent should never expect their child-rearing methods that work on one child to apply to the rest.
Be in prayer, Parent, and look for those new beginnings.
