Krispy Kream for *A's*

Hello my Friends. Wherry this evening it has been a full day. A day that I have many occurrences that are to be as children kept for prayer within my heart. Literally.
Having done all I can do I stand.

Back into the beauty that life has afforded me after my own long personal journey.
Worth the fight I'll tell you.
Freedom is grand.

So we all swam at a friends today after all the interviews and such.
We had a wonderful time together.

My friend told me that the Krispy Kream off Power Road and south of the 60 on the west side of the first light South of the freeway....Were giving students a free doughnut for every A on the report card up to a half dozen each!
I took the them on a special quest for the reward.
It was a bit hard to find the shop but they more than honored it.
the clerk said that the manager had told her that not only they get the free doughnuts but they could choose from any of the variety of special ones.
She spoke to each by name and praised them and patiently gave them the time to make their choices. It was so loving.

She told the Students I had in tow that Mom gets one of each of the half dozen. I said nothing and allowed the m to choose all 6 to their liking.

She then looked at me and said well done Mom, Good job! She then asked me to choose two for myself. I did so and then thought as they were coming fresh off the belt , told her to put one of my choice back so I could get one of the fresh ones for the Daddy Man.

When I got out to the truck I realized that not only did she give me my two choice she also gave two others for him!

A gift given to our family today by a very generous company and a very lovely young woman with an obvious heart for education and family.

They each ate one and a half put the lid on and went and got themselves some pretzels.
All life should be afforded such kindness.

That is so wonderful.

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"
