Tackle it Tuesday


Wow a moment to say hi
Thats one of my tackles today.

Dove to get new bands on her braces in less than an hour. 
The school bus just pulled away.
Dove has had a huge amount of challenges of late.
No time for me due to it.
Adolecence has hid full on!
She wants the freedom of peers that amounts to in large part absent parenting.
She got on line at a Disney web site and got kicked off because she gave out her phone number and a pretty significant clue as to her last name.
I hit the roof!
I am not too much ameanable to my kids being on line at all.
Daddy man thinks differently.
So training has begun in earnest. Although it had been covered what we have to keep in mind is that Dove is not her chronological age. My point emphasized in this singular experience. Disney banned her from the site. Thank goodness for that filter.  I was so upset and prayed, the next morning Steve got an email to inform him she had done so. He really sees my point now. We can not assume anything now days! Dove sees it as a prison here. I have bad dreams and pray a lot.

Dash came in yesterday morning knowing I was upset over something he approched me. He said "mom I am here if you need to talk to someone", stunned at his sweet maturiy I explained that I was just frustrated because I did not feel as if anyone could see into me, or really see me.
He said "mom I see you".
Chokes me up just to think about it.

We recently went to see Avitor, so much the native American story in a nut shell.
So touched me in the things I try to teach the children.
That in itself a huge frustration to me in my life. 

Dove has appointments up coming for the ENT regarding the sleep issue. Dash and I are doing allergy injections 2 x a week, he get two shots and I one. Mine left me not feeling too well. My arm got pretty red at injection but he did fine. 
Steve is undergoing some neuro care for the shaking of the hands an issue generations old.
My 8th nerve study showed that I have a significant neuro issue to my ear on the left side, and the right ear has structural hearing loss. So I am a candidate for hearing aides bilateral if we can swing it.
This hearing loss is a real hassle because everyone forgets that I just can not hear them and they get annoyed to repeat. Don't need to be yelled at just need to see your face to know what your saying.

Kids are busy with school, the years fly by.
Dash is turining 9 this week and Dove has her 12th adoption day tomorrow.

We are looking into refinancing the house from a 22 year to a 15 year and a 7/8 point rate reduction and free closing costs. It would raise our payment $150 a month but get us out from under a mortgage 7 years sooner. It is a risk however to do so. Most folks are extending loans to reduce payments.
We were thrilled to learn that our credit score was not effected by getting rid of the credit card and closing the account. Living debt free can be penalized in that way and the fear of it keeps most folks with a credit line open. Not so at least not for us anyway.

My days are spent

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."
