Tackle It Tuesday

Good Morning!
It is an early start for me today. I have risen with the dawn. The house is quiet....

This guy has been fed and is resting now with Rena at my feet.
He is a good companion.
Mr U took the new mixer apart to find that it has been dropped on the motor end, the housing is shattered as is the switching mechanism. He is looking into the cost of replacing that part of it. The mixer is new and sells for $180. so it may be worth it to fix.

The kitchen reflects a wonderful meal last night.
I have it to clean.
Meat to cook for the suppers tonight and so on.

I have a ton of laundry to fold and store.

Wash and dry.

This is laundered and I need to fold it , and return it to the owner. It has been on loan to us for the house staging.
It is the bed spread that was on the big bed in our room.
The chicken coop tractor is coming along. We found a lot of free wood this weekend. The folks also came on Sunday (for Doves Birthday) they came with several peaces of scrap lumber (actually just what we needed!)
Mr U. worked some on it last night .
Our weather has been so hot here it is hard to work on it.
He has a class again this morning so he will be home a while and then home a bit earlier tonight. I love when his employment gives him free education. It is such a blessing.

I have to leave here for Volley Ball lessons mid morning so I better take advantage of this quiet house and go fold clothes.
some prayer time first though...

Wow! You have a lot to tackle here. Household tasks can be mind boggling and my house has been neglected because we are renovating the upstairs apartment. My Tackle it Tuesday post is up on my Writing Nook.

Such a busy day for you sweetie.

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
