Tackle It Tuesday

Good Morning!
Got Mr U. his lunch and after a refreshing shower of kisses He was off to work.
He took time to help me remove some comments from an annoying "john " trying to sell a product. Some computer generated demon.
Tackling my day with a fresh attitude and peaceful mind. I was so sleepy this morning. I was deeply in a strange dream. It was very hard to awaken. Dove is still ill and I am a little concerned that it might be my turn. :( Maybe not it could just be a little allergy. Dash is awaiting me...I'll finish later.
an hour so goes by...
Both kids home sick, although I am still wondering if Dash played me.
I did not hear his cry (I'm sick) last week because of crying wolf so much.
Wow when they do that, and then you really miss the wolf,it can be very frustrating.

The dogs and chickens have been fed.
Dove is coughing a lot.
I just gave her a cup of hot cereal to ease her throat. She fought me on it. She would rather just eat cough drops. I am wherry of it all because I am sleepy and I think I might just be fighting it off.

I have sewing to do yet...
Had to let the dog out...
I am eating the hot cereal ...sorta don't blame Dove it is not so good. :) She finished it so should I.

My tackle is to let everything go.
Sewing Christmas...cleaning house...expectations of the garden...cleaning the chicken coop...and mostly not being annoyed by the pressure of the list above my head...

That list will always be there.
These children will not, they will grow.
Have families of their own.
They will remember days like today in what ever way I present them.
My big tackle is face my own selfish will.
My own agenda, desires and expectations.
I must let them all go and move into the day with a graceful servitude that will empower them someday to follow my own example.

Good Morning , nice to meet you. I trust all your needs will be provided for. I love asking him for the things on my list and watching it all play out. It is a palpable presence I Have with him. Sounds like a yummy menu. Thanks for the nice comment and visit. My dream was about a bug gathering of my husbands former employment. We had to gather a list of items and bring them to the center where it was to be held. I was all muddy form falling into a big quick sand type thing and getting pulled out. Them I was showered at the place and was trying to fit into a swim suit. and I was late....Well now wonder I am overcoming this morning it wore me out just remembering it.

Your post reminded me of this verse: "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you" ~ 1 Peter 5:7. Our attitudes and perspectives are such an important tackle. Thanks for sharing your tackle today.

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."
