Thankful Thrusday

We leave in the very early a.m. tomorrow.
We have a dear friend to tend the estate.
He has been recently blessed with employment at my husbands side.
30 years ago they once worked side by side.
Brothers and friends.
Amazingly he starts when we return.
It is so good to know that he is here for the life we leave behind as we are free to set off.

Oh Joy!
Small children await the day as they anticipate a journey.
The sensory issues faced them a bit.
I found sweet Dove asleep this morning

Change is a process when you have special needs darlings.
Slow transition called to wisdom to keep them home today.
Their little hands to fold the clothing to take.
Their little minds to process what is going on around them.
At their own pace they this day will prepare for a change, a different bed to sleep in.
They will anticipate sand on their toes and if that will feel nice or harsh, will the air be cold on skin or just right.
Noise and lights to consider as wisdom reminds me of my bag Of tools, tricks of the trade for this mother of special needs children.

Time to pause and reflect , watch for the next vision of action to take.
Made able for this task am I.
Made able.
Not able alone or on my own.

"This is not my mother or this is not my father HELP!",
rehearsed into a jubilant force of power!

I will flow into the end of my day.

This day that like my land , no more belongs to me but to the Love of a Father.

All the rides have been viewed on U tube.
The preventives measured and readdressed.

Open for question, rehearsing the trip.

It is like taking it thrice or even more.
Once there then....calm can easily be restored if need be.
They have played it out before.

Oh, but this day...

This day is new.

This day has begun.

Oh the joy.
Oh what fun.

They are so happy.
They are doing their laundry HAPPILY!

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."
