Mother and Daughter Blog Carnival

Having a dayghter is the best!
Wow! A spectacular joy, my little girl!
Whirling and twirling
Skating in socks.
Horses and flowers on a bedroom wall.
Stars on her ceiling, clouds white and blue.
Stuffed animal families of make believe.
Sweet Street cities.

Oh wonder! My darling Dear.
The world her oyster, joy her pearl.
Dresses at Easter and pumpkins in fall.
Washing her hair
The glory of youth in her heart strings.
The wonder of life the lyrics she sings.
The sweet response to her name when I call.

This actress of mine.
New characters to meet in her mind.
Bracelets, lip gloss, powders, perfume.
The look in her Fathers eyes.
The mellow dramatics we see when she cries.
Then those sweet coy little smiles
tears wiped from her eyes.

Ah, It is a marvelous thing to behold.
All those sweet secrets to be told.
Pink party favors.
Fairy tale wands.
giggles and laughter
Story book pages unfold

Sewing and cooking
lessons on how to forgive
opportunities to gain
chances to give.
All rolled into the joy
as I teach her how to live.

Beautiful poem! I love "skating in socks"! My daughter did that too. :)

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
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
