Tackle It Tuesday

Good Morning
I have a very full day today
With a Bible Study class on Parenting to start off the places I have to go...Home work was accomplish for it yesterday. It took most of the day between laundry. Good stuff, a post will be forth coming on it.

At the Elementary school I will be teaching four different classes (three) different grade levels, Art Masterpiece.
20 minute presentations on three different masters.
Intermittent stops during the day here at the house, the post office too.

Then it will be home after the school day is done.
Say a prayer for me I am having a bit of a migraine trying to hit me.
Love ya!

This is a re-post from December 12, 2008

Well to day is the day!

Apples and Oranges by Paul Cezanne (French 1839-1906)
at 2:40 I will present this to the second grade class my Dash is in. This is the hardest one to look forward too. This teacher has not just walls up but lead ones. She is so defensive and shut off, closed down to me. I find that my stress has gotten the better of me more than not with this woman. I think it could be a spiritual thing. Perhaps she is a survivor?

success and peace
I think this relationship has found a place of comfort. I saw the teacher smile a few times looking satisfied and well humored , pleased with the presentation.

The Voyage of Jacob 1677
by Claude Lorrain (French 1600-1683)
I spoke with the teacher this morning and she is thrilled. She will stop time to make it as convenient as possible for me!
Wow that is nice.
Without any more than this mornings notice I will be presenting to her today.

At 1:30 this is the next print to be covered with a second grade glass.
A landscape, I will cover "how would you know what Egypt might of looked like if you had never been there?
Also about "stretching Your eyes", so to speak. How your eyes are drawn to light.

It went very well , very pleasant.

The Circus 1890-1891
George Seurat (French 1859-1891)

At 2: I will present this to a 4th grade class, that My Dove is in.
This will be a treat.
I know all these kids for I serve them weekly in tutorial.

The teacher and I have a wonderful repor.

I had a ball!
We had a longer lesson. What fun!
I spent time teaching them Pointillism, and color wheel terms.
I was so relaxed that it was wonderfully enriching to do.

Don Miguel Osorio de Zuniga 1784
Francisco Goya (Spanish 1746-1828)
This morning I presented this painting to a class of first graders. It went well the teacher made me feel welcome. Funny bent my presentations are taking, they have more of an introspective take. Asking the children to identify with the artist, time and experience. Also the symbolism of the times. It went well. I was not all about the intellectual details of dates and such so much, I just told them 256 years ago...

Well here are my first prints to rotate for the next 8 weeks (begining 1-6-09) between 2-4 classes.
I have offered my services to two other teacher and will know when they call if they would like me to present to their classrooms.
They had no representation in the program.
There are two other 4th grade classes , but being new I thought Better.
I may add a 1st grade class and a 2nd grade class.
For now it will be Doves 4th grade class and Dash's 2nd grade class.
I have packets on each painting full of ideas and props of sorts.
Each class will have a 10-15 minute presentation.
This is a volunteer service through the Mesa Public School. I had a three week training session. They are in need of presenters if anyone in my area is of a mind. If your child goes to the school you present at, you are welcome, if not you must under go a finger print and background check.
Serving the children in the Arts is a real privilege.
Children NEED the Arts

So glad everything went well.

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."
