Happy Thanksgiving!

I thank the Lord for His many provissions, for His unseen protections, for His unconditional love. I thank the Lord for a wonderful family, great friends, and godly council.

I pray that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and that your hearts would be as full as your stomachs today. That your joy may be full, as you join in this celabration day...

Psalm 118
1 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
his love endures forever.

Why I homeschool

I homeschool because I feel the Lord has impressed me to do so. I feel he has given me children to train up in his word. I feel that my children are a blessings,and I want to do my best with what he has given me. I want my children to know they are always loved, that I am available to them whenever they need to talk, whenever they need a hug, whenever they need help... Because that is how God is with me. I want them to learn to be respectful, honorable, honest, hardworking men. I want them to have a heart that is filled with God's word, so when the time comes that they are out on their own then will have a storehouse of knowledge inside of them.

I feel obligated to teach my children that this world did not come about by chance, that a big explosion can not create anything. This world was created for a purpose, and they were created for a purpose, and there are no accidents when it comes to the creation. God made us, He loves us, and He wants a relationship with us...

Why is that such a threat to so many? Why do people look at me so strange when I say that I choose to educate my children? Can I really go wrong... after all I have the Creator of the world on my side. I have his knowledge in my heart, and it's an complete honor to teach my children about his creation. It's an honor to tell them about Jesus love. It's an honor to teach them about the providence of God. It is an honor to be with them, to share my time with them, to learn with them, to grow in the Lord with them... It's a great privilege to be a parent. To be intrusted with a life... It's an honor! I will never take that lightly!

I will never give my children over to the state for them to indoctrinate. They teach a doctrine that is contrary to the word of God. They teach children that they came about by chance, and that they evolved from apes, that it's OK to live in sin, and give them protective measures so that they can do it safely.... like sin is ever safe! They teach that if you think homosexuality is wrong then you are hateful. If you believe in God, then your ignorant...and that is just the beginning, their is many more lies they teach... Why would I not homeschool my children? I love them, and they are a gift to me... after all it all goes by so fast.. I don't want to miss a minute of it!

lazy days and ponderings

We have been having some lazy days around our house. Cold weather is here, and so are the sore throats and sniffles. I have been forcing elderberry tinctures and super green vitamins down every ones throats, trying to get them healthy again... I also made up my thieves oil, and have been rubbing it on their necks and feet.. and using it to keep my hands germ free.

Saturday, Joshua helped Larry built a little house that goes over the top of our generator. It will keep it nice and dry when it's in storage, but it also will keep it dry if we need to use it. I love to see them working together on projects.

Levi is really into football right now, so him and a friend play in our back yard. Sometimes Larry and Joshua get involved too, and they have so much fun...

I have been going through all the clothes that were left to me from my Nana. It has been hard to go through them, but I have really been blessed with some nice shirts. I also was blessed with all her paper, and pencils, and paints... She loved to paint, and it kept her busy right up to the end... Yesterday I sat down and drew a picture of sunflowers, and painted them with her watercolor pencils... It was fun,and of course I thought about her the whole time... OK, I'm crying... but, I know that will get better in time. I am so glad she is with Jesus, and not hurting anymore... and I bet she is having a wonderful time catching up with all her loved ones. Maybe she is talking to Papa and holding his hand...

Theives Oil: Homemade Hand Sanitizer | Healthy and Green Living

Theives Oil: Homemade Hand Sanitizer | Healthy and Green Living

I was talking to a friend about Thieves oil the other day, and I decided to try to find a recipe that was close to the one I used to buy. This one is very similar. This mixture is wonderful for getting rid of viruses, and bacteria. It is also calms your coughs, and takes the pain out of soar throats. If I could only have a few things in my medicine cabinet this would be one of them for sure.

Rise up, O men of God

This is a song I found in an old hymnal... It dates back to the late 1800's.

Rise up, O men of God! Have done with lesser things;
Give heart and mind and soul and strength To serve the King of Kings.

Rise up, O men of God! His kingdom tarries long;
Bring in the day of brotherhood And end the night of wrong.

Rise up, O men of God! The Church for you doth wait,
Her strength unequal to her task; Rise up, and make her great!

Lift high the cross of Christ! Tread where His feet have trod.
As brothers of the Son of Man, Rise up, O men of God!

Talk about a heart cry! O Lord, that the hearts of Christian men would wake up, and rise up to lead the church, and lead there families in truth and righteousness! Lord Jesus, put a fire in our men's hearts that can not be ignored, that cannot be put out. Let them sound the trumpets, and March as men of War. Let them stand on God's Holy Word, and not the status quo. Let them not be afraid to offend men, but afraid to offend God! What this nation needs is Men, real Men, that will not shrink back, but will stand upon the word of God.
