Last Words of 2012

     As the last hours of 2012 tick away never to be seen again let us strive to allow our faults and failures of 2012 to also slip away.  

     Dust the past off our feet, wash it from our hearts and daily cleanse it from our minds.  Our future lies so plainly out in front of us but those failures and faults that we regret from the past will always  block our way if we let them.  We cannot go back, there is no way to relive it or change it.  We must ask forgiveness from those we've hurt or failed and then forgive ourselves.  From that point on it's time we live in the our "now" always looking into our future and leaving our past behind.

     2013 is going to be an amazing year.  It is so full of possibilities and potential.  All that is necessary to experience those possibilities is faith and a stout heart willing to step out and believe that...
All Things Are Possible!

May God Bless your New Year with amazing new adventures.

What An Adventure We Had !

     As this year is coming to a close so has my "job", my homeschooling that is, with 4 of my 5 kids and what an adventure we've had these past 16yrs.  I can't say that it's been easy but I can say it was the right thing to do and it was well worth it.  

   3 yrs into our homeschooling

     We never really did what other homeschoolers around us did.  We followed our own path.  I did what I felt was right for them no matter how many spoke against our choices.  (I'm so thankful that alot of homeschoolers don't know what it's like to not have support for this choice to homeschool.)  It's a large responsibility that is so much more easily carried with a good support system.

     So as my many years of homeschooling are coming closer and closer each year to an end, I would like to leave some words of advice.

  • Study to show yourself approved....  don't jump into homeschooling on a whim.  Check out books on the many forms of homeschooling, speak with men and women who have homeschooled for many years and whose outlook on it is positive but based in reality.  In essence, get educated yourself.  You need to hear about all the good that can come about through homeschooling.  You also need to hear about the hard times that homeschooling parents have had and how they worked through it.  This will help you come up with reality based expectations.
  • A three fold cord is not easily broken....  don't jump into

The Complete Image of God

     I was searching around in an old notebook that I haven't written in for some time and came across a little note I'd like to pass on.  At the time of my writing I was thinking about man and how man is an example of God so lets come talk about this idea.

Take out a piece of paper and write down a few things. 
     #1  Describe man.  What is he like? (the positive attributes)
     #2  Describe woman.  
           What is she like? (again, only the positive attributes)

As I sit down and try to describe the positive attributes of man I find myself listing protector, defender, provider, tough.   And when I describe woman I'm listing talker, toucher, feeler, tender, nurturer, encourager, all about relationships.  So I went out on the WWW and checked to see what I could find there.  One website had an article on it about the Top 20 Traits Women Want in a Man.  The first five traits were faithfulness, dependability, kindness, moral integrity, and fatherliness.  Other traits included generosity and someone who would listen.   After checking out man I started checking out the attributes of women.  I'll be honest, it was hard to find websites stating positive attributes of a woman but

My Tribute

I don't think I could ever say enough to God to truly thank Him properly for all He's done for me.
So instead, let me sing and maybe I can come closer.
