For His Purpose

***If time is an issue don’t even read my blog post, just go straight down to the video and be sure to watch the whole thing; it’s an incredible testimony of a man (pilot) who was originally scheduled to fly the first plane to crash on 9/11.***

When Nate and I first began homeschooling our kids we attended an annual homeschool conference every Spring. We had some best friends who would also go and we’d all make a long weekend out of it, enjoying adult company with one another. Some of our best memories have come from those days.

During the time that we’d spend at the actual conference I’m pretty sure the guys found most of their entertainment counting the number of pregnant women and sneaking cat naps hoping us wives wouldn’t notice. Each year the homeschool conference would host a guest speaker and to be honest some years…

Sleep is your superpower | Matt Walker

Sleep is not overrated, mommas and pappas! Take a break, ask for help, and sleep. New moms with one child, please sleep when your baby sleeps. Everything can wait. Mommas with multiple kids, please prioritize sleep/rest. If you find it difficult to sleep at night despite doing all that is recommended by the scientist/expert in this video, just talk to God about difficulty sleeping. He knows anyways. Remember Psalm 127:2 “In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat– for he grants sleep to those he loves.” Enjoy this ever timely post by fellow blogger Schulter @schulteretyang.com

One of my earliest blog posts was on sleep. The heading was/is, Grace and the beauty of sleep. You can read it here. I had stumbled on this truth about sleep—that within the Christian scriptures, God spoke to people in their sleep. God, very few times spoke to people who were wide awake. The message of the post was to encourage us to relax a bit. Take it easy. Go to sleep and let God do the night shift.

Sleep is a fundamental gospel truth, and this truth is a thread that runs throughout the Christian scriptures. In my earlier post, I highlighted instances of sleep and the results. For example, in the garden, when God wanted to give Adam a wife, he put him to sleep. When God wanted to give his son, Jesus, a new wife, he put him to sleep…

Prayer In The Waiting Room

This is what being a Christian Momma looks like, seeing people through God’s eyes and carrying God’s presence everywhere we go. Not because we are perfect, but because we serve a God willing to work through imperfect vessels. Enjoy this great post by fellow blogger, Dawn @drawingclosertochrist.com

Drawing Closer to Christ

Colossians 4:2 NLT, “Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.”

Yesterday I had to go visit the GYN for my annual exam. It’s a very busy place, so when I go, I always know that I’ll be waiting at least an hour before I see the doctor, but this time my wait ended up being an hour and a half. I waited one hour in the main waiting room, and thirty minutes in the exam room.

All the women I saw were anticipating the arrival of a little one. I thought to myself, at this point in my life, I wouldn’t want to change places with them. But I also remember when I was there like them, expecting my daughter, and how exciting it was as the time for her arrival drew closer. It’s hard to believe how fast the years have flown by.

Becoming HIS Tapestry

Hey friends, how are you today? It has been raining since Sunday.The Lord and I talked about that, this morning.Of course, He already knew, but I thought I would just remind Him that it has been dark, gloomy, dreary and rainy since Sunday.I said I would be most grateful for a sunny, 70° Tuesday, instead of a rainy, 42° one, but He said, “Look up, child”.

‘still cloudy, Lord, but I will be thankful in spite of the clouds”

So, I did, and I said, ‘thank you, Lord for the rain.I will wear my boots instead of my opened toes heels and my umbrella and I’m sure it will be a good day. I will be thankful, it isn’t snowing.What’s the weather like, in your neck of the woods?

Did you know kids are a gift from God Almighty Himself? In spite of the circumstances surrounding their birth; all kids…

A Quick Fix or a Worth the Wait Blessing?

Most times the story of Esau and Jacob is often told to emphasize the deceptive nature of Jacob. There is often little or no emphasis on the role Esau played in losing his birth right. Alicia, the author of this article highlights the role Esau played in the loss of his birth right. The author uses real life experiences with her children to help us understand the dangers/consequences of instant gratification as seen in the story of Esau and Jacob. Enjoy!

For His Purpose

I’m assuming my kids are no different and share a common enthusiasm with other like-minded boys and girls—the electronic obsession!!??

These kids of mine would eat, drink, and sleep electronics if my husband and I allowed it, but thankfully for the sake of healthy living we’ve put a cap on their amount of exposure.

As a family we circled up in the living room about a year ago to hash out a plan or schedule for electronic time. That might sound over the top, but seriously it was necessary and has actually been pretty beneficial.

Here’s what we came up with: My kids love cereal (almost as much as electronics) and would prefer it for every meal. I’m not a fan; there can’t possibly be much nutritional value to a morsel of puffed up air, coated with sugar. Soooo, collectively, we determined cereal mornings would be limited to three mornings…

Pocket-knife Lessons

Definitely Worth Reblogging. Many times, our children help us discover our own inadequacies and strengths. God speaks to us through them. What a blessing! Enjoy this beautiful story with tremendous lessons!

For His Purpose

My son eagerly inquired for what seemed like the hundredth time, “so mom did he text yet? I’m really wanting that pocket knife, did dad text you yet?”

“No Warren, he sure hasn’t.” I responded in a gentle but exasperated voice.

My boy and his dad had made a deal (a few days before) pending good behavior—If my son (Warren) held up his end of the deal, showing respect and a good attitude, he’d eventually receive a mini-pocket knife from his dad’s scant collection and on the flip side: poor behavior and lack of respect and bad attitude would equal no pocket knife.

Pretty simple formula to process.

…maybe not for an eight-year old boy with an abundance of extra energy.

#thestruggleisreal, right?

First off when this deal was initially communicated a deadline must’ve been overlooked and never discussed. Warren seemed to be failing at recognizing that patience…

YOU ARE INVITED… TO A BLOG PARTY (2)

First Blog Party!!

Becoming HIS Tapestry

Hey friends, how are you today? How was your week? I’ve had a great week.  On Monday, I took advantage of the holiday, to complete some house chores that just needed my attention.  You know, the ones that do not have to be done immediately, but it should be done soon. Then Wednesday, we had a mix of all the precipitation. We began with snow, then sleet and then the ice and then just pain rain.  This winter has been very, very unusual in my neck of the woods.  Snow and cold is what we’re used to; this weather and temperatures is still out on verdict.  The snow resorts are quite unhappy I think.  So again, how are you today? I Thess 5 18Yeah! Today, we are having a party; a blog party, that is!  I love to read and one of my favorites are blogs; they are short (most) and sweet.  I…

Christian parents (especially mothers), your kid is a sinner

I agree with this author. Mommas tend to believe their children are perfect and can do no wrong. Parents often find themselves in denial and pain when their children make life-changing mistakes such as unplanned pregnancy and addictions. This Reblogged article by a former youth/teen pastor teaches mommas and parents how to face reality and deal with sin in their children’s life. According to the author, “Christian parents are the most challenging to relate to because they are so blinded by their own spiritual experiences and jargon”. How true is this?!

Enjoy!

I’ve been fortunate enough to associate well with older and younger people alike. Throughout the years, I’ve been privileged to lend an ear to parents and to their children within the same family. I get to hear both sides of the story. This happens often in spite of the fact that I have no children of my own. The same is true with Jenny.

A father or mother would inform me what they think is wrong with their child, and when I listen to the child, the child gives me a different view of the same situation. Sometimes, those views are as varied as chalk and cheese. 

Many children who come from families where the parents are Christians find it very difficult to relate to their parents. Christian parents are the most challenging to relate to because they are so blinded by their own spiritual experiences…
