Mother and Daughter Blog Carnival

My daughter is 10, yet with special needs she had to battle for what to some may seam a simple thing.
Tonight out of the thin air after all had gone to bed We heard an exclamation "I DID IT" !
Their Daddy was on duty and I had my I-Pod on listening to music in the silence of the house. He and her did the interactions. She then came to me very upset and I not being savvy to what was going on inquired. "I did it Mommy" she said.
"What honey, what did you do sweet heart"? Crying because her Father was trying to bed them and I not wanting to interfere, asked her to to discuss it with him. He then came in and concerned and upset told me that what she had done was to address and succeed in overcoming a challenge he had given your several months ago. He promised her, that if she could count backwards from 100 to 0 he would give her $5.00. Well he was not there to see it. So she was distressed over the accomplishment unwitnessed. Some time later, after I supported him in going to her, and just holding her so as to get to the bottom of why she was crying and to listen.. She came out full of joy! She had managed to repeat the performance in his presence! NOW she can get the pen she wants from the book fair! She earned it! She had remembered her Fathers promise, HER FATHERS PROMISE. Her Father also remembered it too.

How I wish I would always remember my Fathers Promises to this his daughter. If you...I will...
Conditional, yes. Trust worthy yes.


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"
