Tackle it Tuesday


Well it is Tuesday
and I did tackle it!
Wow four classes of kids today and oh the wonder.
One teacher allows (asks) me to sit for a good hour and a half and just converse and listen to the children.
With only three more weeks of school here this was the last Art Master Piece presentation today. The kids were over all unhappy about it being the last time for me to come.
We worked out a bit of a solution.

In the second graders class I will take my traveling easel to the class with a canvas and oils to show them the medium. I taught them how it will be for me an exercise in courage to paint before them.First time for everything.

The next class I presented to the fourth graders will have a field trip that day. I will attend with them. It is to a nursing home. Once again the children gathering to hug me good by provoked a sweet "look, you are like a Mother to them"...from the teacher.
I will paint for them the following day.

This will be perfect for I will have no time line.By 2:15 I will go to the other second grade class, the one Dash is in. She has opened up for me to do the same thing for her that day.

I have received four invitations to a Ice Cream Social for the service workers at the school. Funny I am not able to eat ice cream. I will bring the family and the Dash and I might bring some non dairy treat to enjoy the moment.

I am sure going to miss tackling Tuesdays with the children over the summer. It is so rewarding to serve this next generation.

Now by 5p.m. I tackled my pillow for 30 minutes until supper was to be cooked.
I am tired. Supper did get cooked and it was yummy!


Dove is now becoming hormonally moody.
It is so hard to help my husband understand her needs.
Now that is a BIG TACKLE!
He asked for forgiveness, yes it was instant I gave it to him.
Now that makes any tackle easier. :)
Me being post menopausal now for 7 years via surgery...well I sure feel for her.
It does bring back those memories of young womanhood.

Tackle a adolescence through love and understanding today.
She will be full of grace tomorrow.

What an inspirational tackle!!

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."
  • "HOME IS WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS"
  • “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."
