Arianna's Loving Sacrifice

Ryan was told to go to the bathroom to get a spanking because he wasn't listening. Arianna suddenly said"I will go to the bathroom instead. Give me Ryan's spanking." Chris and I turned and looked at her. I asked her if she was serious. She said "yes, please don't spank Ryan, spank me instead". Because of her love and sacrifice for her brother, he didn't get a spanking. (We didn't spank her either).

It is amazing and encouraging when they really get the life lessons that we try so hard to teach. Over 2 weeks ago when we were talking about Easter, we talked a lot about Jesus dying and taking our punishment for us. Good to see that she was listening and really took it to heart!
