Daddy Man's Hair Cut

Little Miss Fiction wanted to help me cut Her Daddy's Hair tonight

Oh so serious. Our shaver was malfunctioning so good Ol' sport Dad took to a buzz job. He is a very good sport. I think it is sorta sexy like that guy from the old E.R. series.

She was so intense. We were just tickled how grown up she felt. She has been wanting to help me out in every way today.

I overheard Dash in the tub and Miss Fictions voice in the bathroom. She had fallen clothes and all into the tub, they were laughing. So I being THE MOTHER had to correct them, while Dad and I just shook our heads later thinking how funny that must have been. Still we found it a little far fetched to believe.

Dash made a bar graph (Yes he is 6 yrs old!) to discover how good dinner was the categories were smell while cooking, how it looked (presentation) and taste. Well I got rave reviews. He thinks it is too cool to graph something out. So much power in math. I tell them it is a language of it's own. Few can speak it and fewer understand it. So if he learns it he will have a lot of ability few others have. He has a mind for higher education. His IQ was tested and they stopped at a 6th grade level because he was annoyed with them, he was 5 at the time.

The house has hushed Daddy Man is reading to them for the next 45 minutes or so. This is a magical hour for me. I get tender good night kisses while listening to the wonderfully animated voice of such characters as old men and young boys. I hear children giggle and add their own animated responses to the narrator. Lately he has been reading several of the old Hardy Boys mysteries. I found 30 of them at a thrift store for 50-75 cents each a while back. Both our kids have an extended vocabulary.
I loved homeschooling and still do school them. I just let them go to school for the vocational stuff. Beloved and I teach a lot of character, science, natural history, global understanding, social understand, cultural understanding too. I love to understand WHY people are who they are. I enjoy passing this on to the kids. Beloved and I both like History SO much!
We have some very strong feelings about knowing ones own history, HIStoy (Bible Knowledge), World History and our favorite I think is Early American History even before the colonial period. We are a very patriotic Family.
Does any one out there enjoy History?
I'm going to close now . The history Detective is going to come onto our local P.B.S. channel. We don't buy cable so this is our favorite show to enjoy together.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
