twas' 21 days till Christmas

 All through the house sounds of the 'Polar Express' movie were thrilling the kids.
Dad relaxed think of it.
brings me joy to see it.
 Dove very lovingly pulled her brother back into decorating the tree while I was listening from the other room. "what were you so sad last night?" she asked was so sweet.
 On Thursday Evening I was invited to a thank you evening at the sewing store. It was for Guild members. We made these 10 minute table runners. No joke 10 minute project. I'll try to get over to ' A Place to Create' Blog to show you how.  The Santa and boy was a gift that my dear friend Julie gave me when Dash came home from Russia. We were all watching videos of all the Christmas past plays we have done. Dash and we got home on 12-11-2001. We watched as the kids played together for the first time. Dash had never only had a diaper without clothing. It was a very strange thing for him.
 This was my show and tell for Guild meeting this Morning. We all exchanged gifts via a story read while we all sat round table. Every time the words right, left were read so went the package. To the story 'twas the night before Christmas. It was fun. Mine was a 4 inch quilt square rule and a pair of embroidery scissors.
 This while the train was careening out of control in the movie.
 After a nice cup of 
Oh the sugar rush!
 The kids were pretending to have train tickets like the movie so I slipped out of the room and came back with two whole punchers. They were so tickled and delighted.
Well tomorrow is another day on the count of anticipation. Steve only has a few more days to work. We are very fortunate that he gets two weeks mandatory vacation. He has way too many banked holiday hours. The kids have 14 more days till school is out.

It has been so fun and uplifting to decorate this week. It really lifted my spirit. Even finding myself humming hymns. Feels real good. The kids joy felt so good too.

Steve took the kids 'shopping', poor thing. Gone a few :?four hours while two kids struggled with the concept they were shopping for someone other than them self. He said to me "hun...Dash does not stop! he just goes on and on...I'm thirsty dad" said boy
Dad "hold on we will get a drink"
Boy panicked! "Dad I am thirsty!!!!!!!!!!" now you know he was just dieing right...? :)  Poor man could not find a drink for him fast enough. Dash is really acting out in other ways with the attachment stuff.
I think this time of year is triggering his adoption stuff. I know after 9 years it might sound strange to you. I think he is really coming to terms and feeling some feelings about it all. Seeing his sweet infant self so thin sick and with the sores on his back. I think it got him feeling a lack of security.

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"
