Texting Gods Word

I sent a text to my 18 yr old son this Friday morning. I have not seem him since he chose to move out 4 simple words I miss you and love you. this is the text I received back from him.Jeremiah 2 5 6-Thus say the lord "what injustice did your fathers find in me,that they went from me and walked after emptiness and became empty".

My thought on this was he was saying what was so wrong with him that I threw him out of the house and abandoned him-it stands to reason I miss him.

Now remember he chose to leave because he did not agree with our house rules. My first instinct was to come back at him with Colossians 3 2 0-"Children obey your parents in everything for this pleases the lord"

But I refuse to get into a pissing contest with him using gods words as amunition.

Does it ever get better?

it sounds a whole lot like the "look what you made me do" excuse in an attempt to guilt you and leave you feeling like it's all your fault.

dykewife-exactly how I felt at first, then dang it I got mad.I love my son dearly but you live in my house you live with my rules-he chose to go. So I am ignoring the guilt feelings as best as I can

thanks for your comment on my blog. I have had many posts since the relapse. Blogger must have had some issues last night, however they can be seen now.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
