Deuteronomy 28:2 (King James Version)

"And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God." This is my homeschooling blog. Some days my cup runnteh over with the joys of homeschoolong, some days it's spilling what can only be be described as thinly veiled insanity. Either way, it runneth over...

Thankful Thursday

“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.” ~ Colossians 3:12-14 (ESV-emphasis mine)

Its interesting that Thankful Thursday falls on the one month "anniversary" of my Mother's passing...even more interesting that this was the scripture chosen for today. The past month, I haven't really felt like a "chosen one". I've felt more like a "forgotten one". I know that we are not to be ruled by our feelings. I know that nothing separates me from his love. The fact is that as I focus on "me" and what I'm lacking, I forget to focus on Him. He hasn't forgotten me, I chose to look away. So as I ask for His forgiveness (again) I will also lift my praises and thanksgivings to him.

My thankful list today...
1. I am thankful he takes me back every time I come.
2. I am thankful for the family he put into my life to surround me with love.
3. I am thankful for the little things he uses to remind me of his love...a well timed card from a secret pal, small flowers that make it through the stormy night, and hugs in the grocery store from a friend I didn't expect to see.

Parental warning...

The world is such a dangerous place for our children....its even scarier when its other children who are working so hard to destroy each other. 17 yo artist "Soulja Boy" is one of those kids preying on your children and taking your money in the process. Please read this blog and follow the links to read the lyrics to the song. It both alarmed and saddened me that parents are spending hard earned money to indoctrinate their precious children with such an unhealthy view of sexual relations.

Be're not going to like what you read, and should probably not let your children read it unless they are mature enough to do so. The lyrics are vulgar and offensive, as are the comments left by children defending the song.

The hard lessons....

We lost tow chickens today. One of our chicks was dead when we woke up. It looked like the others smooshed it while the slept. The other disappeared shortly after breakfast. ..we suspect she became someone else's breakfast. Its a really sad thing for your kids to learn, and yet, its a valuable lesson as well. From the chicks they learned that being selfish and only caring about your own comfort hurts others around you. From the missing hen they learned that when you decide to not follow the rules, and stay inside the protection that the rules bring, you end up very sorry. The enemy is always waiting to gobble us up if we decide to step out form under the protect of the Holy Father. He doesn't tell us to listen to him because he wants to hurt us...he only wants to love and protect us. So, not fun lessons, but ones they will will the Queen who had the lovely task of disposing of the little chicky no one else was willing to touch...I did however refuse to dissect it. I'm thinking if they want to see whats inside it, they should do it themselves....eeeeewwwwww....

Cops: 3rd-graders aimed to hurt teacher

My children have never plotted to harm their teacher. The only "attack" perpetrated on myself is the dog-pile on Mommy's bed to smother her with hugs and kisses. I'm so glad I'm raising nice kids. :0)
