Tyson clean up the spot in front of him and he began to lead her on a chase around the table screaming like a maniac. Thus began the conversation I have had countless times with Tyson about submitting to authority whether you always agree with them or not. He could probably say with me at this point "do you think I always want to do what my boss tells me to do? Of course not but I have to because she is my BOSS" I can't begin to tell you how many times over the past 13 years I have fretted and worried about how to teach Tyson to submit to authority. I have had hour long conversations with friends and family about what kind of man Tyson could grow up to be if he doesn't learn this lesson. It has just hit me that the one person I haven't talked to about this issue is the one person whose authority I am ultimately trying to teach Tyson to submit to. I am beginning my day of prayer by asking forgiveness for bringing this to everyone instead of God. I am praying for you all today as you pray for your son's.

Sometimes submitting to authority isn't that much fun!
