Our Son.



Our Son

This morning on the hammock all the cuddling and sweetness of my little boy.
He wanted attention so after I dressed , I came out of my room and asked him if he might like to sit down a moment together on the couch. SMILE, he did and wide! We Reposed and then with the seriousness of all that is earnest he began...
"Mom I am very concerned about my friends..."
I reply "oh why is that son?"...

"Well mom I got Dog Pee on my hand and I tried to wash it off, but It still smells bad...I think I can not risk going to school Mom. They might get the germs...Then I would be responsible for getting them sick. So, Mom I think it best if I just stay home from school today!."
Holding to the level of his conversation, I inquired..."Son may I ask just how did you get dog pee on your hand?"
"Well Mom.. I was sliding down the slide and I accidentally put my hand in it and it smells"
Diligent mother I am out of a curiosity that doubted the story. Thinking the child was creating a marvel of "get out of school fiction"... SMELLED HIS little boy hand! YEP! Dog pee eeew!
He with strained face said "mom I don't want to give my friends the germs and get them sick!"
"Lets go wash them off together, we'll kill all those old germs and then it will be alright for you to go to school" Endeared to the core was I.

So I took him in and lathered his sweet baby boy hands (6 years is still a baby!) and scrubbed them in mine. His eyes lit up and he was a three year old in my arms all over again. He was watching my face in the mirror with such admiration I thought I would just melt!

On another not. I told him that I miss him looking back when I drop him off in the morning. This morning off he raced out of the car, to the school doors. Then he was bolted in his step looked over his shoulder and smiled that "holy little boyish smile".
I have a wonderful Son who brings so much joy into our lives.

I've got a six-year-old son that I have the wonderful privilege of homeschooling. He is a joy to me, as yours is to you. We are both blessed!

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."
  • "HOME IS WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS"
  • “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."
