A new school year

It was a good day today. Dash began his 6th grade year here at home on the K12 online. He had a really kind attitude. We got along well. Daddy Man told our son about my two hats. When mom has teacher hat on you respect her and treat her as you would a teacher. When mom is not teaching she has her mom hat on. Respect her as your mother. That he did today. It is hard for a smart child to listen an do things the way he should. His mind reasons his own way to do things, today he listened to the teachers reasons and respected them. Tonight at bedtime he even differed his thoughts to a "they must send us the books for a reason", in response to using the student workbook and not printing out the pages on the computer. He is a year older now and the maturity shows.
Our daughter Dove begins 8th grade in the morning. I have picked up another child to transport along our way. She is Doves' new friend. Nice girl. Her parents are suffering hardship and we pass her home on the way. Dove does not ride the bus I transport her daily. Busing here is now a real battle ground for bullies. That and a neighbor kid is very troubled and I fear violent.  She got her things ready. They are both asleep now.
It felt good to have a scheduled day today actually. After Dash finished all of his school work we went to shop for him. Some new tshirts and three pair of pants. He is skinny, we found jeans for $8 each! Gratitude for being able to get my children what they need impressed upon my heart a pleasant peacefulness.

We are so blessed. So many have need for supply, my heart goes out to those mothers who suffer the lack of peace. As it should.

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"
