Sunday Smiles

What a lovely day! The morning sound around here are so intoxicating to imbibe in. Our Son coming in to greet me softly announces a new city he has built. "It is in the back yard Mother". Willy Wonka Bar (the choc. Lab) is all over the hope of an outstretched arm. whimpering like a toddler wanting to be held. Then the sounds of click and click tapping across the laminate floor and small voices in deep debate that ends peacefully (the dvd) had been chosen. It was the movie from the night before. Looking over to see to see my beloveds face he has serenity expressed , no furrowing of his brow. Telling him he looks like when we married 25 years before "thats hard to believe" states he. "I don't have my glasses on..." say I. "that explains it" he smiles and lets out his morning laugh. The children are explaining the finer points of the old west and details of intent of character. They speak in great detail teaching each other what they know. We have taught them the responsibility of passing on your knowledge. That we are all teachers when we do so. To whom much is given much is required.
After we mused over the finer moments in time, and how these simple mornings resonate in our minds, we arise as well.
I saw myself making Pancakes(apple) this morning and set about doing so. I have not made morning fair for some time. I exchanged ideas with a fellow blogger last night and I left an impression of how blessed We are truly are to have all the ingredients for it in the House
I was compelled me onto do what I can do...I also worked on the breakfast cookies for Hubby to take to work. I ran out on thrusday and he had no breakfast.
I served them on the patio. Much to everyones surprise and delight. Today was our first cool (relative) morning. It was not to hot to eat outside and we all did so.

Last week my daughter asked me if we could ever go to the fair. On Friday we went to the city for Dash's speech therapy appointment. WELL....on the counter were free tickets to admit a childx2, and free admission for adult,x2. It was a Shriner's Circus. If we were ever to put our selves into a circus I thought that would have a better crowd and atmosphere.

So at breakfast we also broke the news to the young ones. They responded as if I said the moon is purple. It did not register at first. I stood in front of the breakfast table and exposed the tickets. Well, Miss Fiction...Do you remember when I answered your question with... If you want to go you'll need to ask God for a way. Your Father and I do not have a budget for it. HE HEARD YOU! So soon after the boys cleared the table we were off.

The freeway had a closure and so our skills of transverse got us there with 2 minutes to spare. We parked and it was a 2 block walk and Beloved was concerned about me. I thought I'll just have to do it. Just then a man named Paul pulled behind us while another family raced to the cart too. I sat in the front with the kids and beloved walked to the gate to meat us! Just perfect with my knee right now it would of left me greatly pained! We had a great time.

It was free to get in because it was laced within with many money sucking opportunities. We celebrated with some cotton candy. While we watched the trapeze. We had sat right in front of it! We later mover to a more center bleachers. We had no one around us at that spot.

The children understand how I feel about "wild things best left wild" So I let the expeirence things for them selfs giving them a chance to decide what they think of...
such things.

the kids each were given the choice of 1 intermission activity. Miss fiction rode an Elephant (Pit Bull was his name) at $6. a ride

and Dash chose the giant slide at $5. for four trips down.

Disappointed they could not do the ponies and get the photo with a bear they had a little pout, but soon overcame and we were back up in the bleachers. Dash had a harder time with "no" over wanting a drink, I was unable to search a drinking fountain due to climbing the bleachers.

We stopped at a Mc D. on the way home, drinks were then made available as apposed to paying $$$ for a 4oz cup o' sugar ;0 I had a bottle of water in the car for the drive on the way home for them.

I was startled and appalled at the lack of respect and enthusiasm for our Flag. The crowds did not even clapping or show any respect to the winners of a raffle or those awarded with volunteer acknowledgments.

Ofter we returned. I napped for several hours while "The daddy man" watched "Back to the future" with the kids. When I awoke I was famished. Dash and I had some left over pancakes.
Soon it will be bath time (now past). The week will begin again. My jaw is doing better my energies a little tapped though. I don't think I'll do the new crown, I'll switch that appointment with a check up for the infection. I think I better let things settle down before opening another tooth up. This socket thing has been a trip! now my eye hurts.

We had a day of fun for the kids. It was so nice to get them out of the house and into an adventure. beloved hurts I think that we cant do more fore them. I thanked him. He is working 50 hour weeks now and we are not hurting. It is however different when your living on 1/3 of your customary income. Dash needs to be able to accept what we are able to offer without a big seine.
We have so much and everywhere around us hands are into the pockets seeking a gain. Beloved is going to look into some WEB education to investigate doing some hosting and earning income somehow through getting a distributor. He has asked me to come up with some ideas for items that might be hot sellers.

Thinking of the morning and finding a bug on my floor YUK! The dishes well, I pressed through the Weekends worth of home cooked meals and snacks and cleaned the kitchen so I could "Rise and Shine" Tomorrow!

Beloved came in and said "how do you do that?" !
"I left you a half an hour ago and now I come in hear and it looks like this!"
I made lunches hoping that that might give me some more time to satiate Dash's demand for attention and too still have plenty left for Miss Fiction. What great privileges I (we) were given today.
God redeems my time I'm telling you!

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
