Spinning into the new year...

This says it all!

The maids will be a spinnin' tomorrow.

Life will get back into the swing on the morrow.
Toast and jam with juice for Dove.
Eggs for Dash and the Monday morning blues the sweet boy attends too.
Every Monday is hard for Dash. He has a separation anxiety from infancy.
Dove is well secured and feels excitement at the venture.
Returning to school means having to contend with all those kids who behave like untaught mad men. Dash despises the folly and rude behaviors.

He wishes that they would act rightly.
It really does annoy him.
He is seven, and has little time for the disrespectful actions around him.
I really like my son and empathize with his plight, although I have not had to deal with it in a long time.

Now Dove speaks to her soul encouraging things about how her friend will really want to play with her and not another kid,
"because she will have really missed me"... she said.
I love her certainty , the way it infuses her with courage.

That's my Dove

Now My Mr will attend to his work, like clock work.
He is a responsible soul. I am so safe within that. He will be able to be home on a regular schedule for there can be no overtime, until the application for the Childrens Hospital Clinic is qualified.
It will be good to start the month slow. He is so adored around here, that we miss him terribly during overtime stretches.

May your day be filled with beauty

My son goes back to work today...I wish Sweetheart was too, but he will do something around here while we spend our day home schooling.
Your children both have a sense of home...Dove in her security to go out in the world, knowing she can come back to that safe place, and Dash feeling such a contentment within the home and it's peace that the chaos of the world feels backwards to him. You are a good mom, Donetta.
Did your package arrive?? If not, then it will be there in the next couple of days I am sure. I sent it regular mail to save money, so it may take some extra time, but I sent it last week, so it will get to you by this week for sure. I pray you are blessed by it.

Hi Donetta, so happy to read all those positivething you sayabout your family.

Like Dash I also had a separation anxiety. It was because of my physical challenge.

I love 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
"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."
