All in a day

One of Dove's gifts at Disneyland were the round beads.
I told her I would make her a necklace out of them.
I had the cute word beads, they have a different word on each side.
These are the characters she got autographs from.
It is strung on elastic.

Supper was a delight.
My family is just excited over these home grown salads.
Plates all but licked clean!

I gathered almost a pound of seed off the flowering vine out front.
It will be fun to plant them next year.
I think they will grow over the shed on the shady side.
Perhaps around the base of the compost barrels.
I am so excited about the garden plans.
We talked about bamboo to hide the houses behind us.
Much to research. I want to do a through investigation about the needs that it will have.
Now we have a pick up truck I will start searching "Freecycle" for some free stuff to build the raised beds out of.

Lots to do.

Dash rode his bike while I tended to seed gathering. He did tricks and chattered while attedned by my eyes and ears. He is so busy of mind that child. He created a whole new game over the last two days. Designed the characters and assigned them roles and such. Pretty mind blowing stuff that kid comes up with.
We had a great devotional today about the 5th commandment. I was able to teach them to respect the office and to understand the hierarchy of authority over them. I taught them to do what is right no matter who is telling them to do differently and that I will back them up. You should of seen their eyes! I explained to them that many tricksters can pretend to be authority, to never just believe anyone who tells them they are a police man or an authority. To make them prove it. I tought them that if they answer to God that HE is the highest athority and that as long as they do what is right, even if they suffer for it , that they are doing the right thing. Giving them the example of a reporter in jail to protect the innocent. Also the study 60 minutes did where 5 of the 6 adults approched by a man saying he was a police man took a child for the man. I told them that only one man said NO to him and that he would call the police and wait for them before he would do what he was told to do.
Good Stuff!
Well I want to come walk around the blog block and visit ya all.
See ya in the comments.

Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is older he will not depart from it.......

How please is the Father God as HE watches you raise those precious children..... HE knew what HE was doing when HE sent you their way..

You have the energy of 5 people and take pictures of that bamboo fence if that is what you decide to do..

YOU have been a BUSY chick! Just look at all that progress!!! I read on down the page...hmmm I wonder if my doggie would like grapefruit leftovers???

I love the gardening! (AND the chickens...we always had chickens when our girls were small---they loved gathering the eggs...and feeding them..until the "new" wore off...then it just another chore!)

Have fun! Can't wait---can't hardly wait to get to hug your neck!!!

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."
