That's great! Isn't the Lord wonderful!
Oh Nazsmum! That is wonderful. I had been hoping and praying that your car situation would be resolved.
We had our first day of homeschool for the year today and it went great! It feels good that have that first day under our belts and I hope that the good start is a sign that it will be a good year too :)
Hey everyone...Yes the Lord is Great...thank you for praying.
Homeschooling- I really enjoy learning w/ my son. I'm learning thing and sharing what I know. That makes me happy.
I'm in the middle of reading Save Me From Myself by Brian "Head" Welch. He is one of founding members of Korn. He became a Christian in 2004. It is really cool to see how it is Jesus "calling" him out of the World and to Him. You can really see that it is the Lord at work in Brian's life. Really good book. Great to see the love of Jesus even for Rock stars
We had our first day Monday. I'm starting year 4 homeschooling my 3 sisters-in-law, 16, 14 and 11 yrs old. First week down, what, 35 to go? Lol It's going to be a different year with the baby coming in the 2nd quarter this year. Really glad they're older and I've been working them toward this time for years.
My Mom really loved that aspect of HS us. She said she learned so much she'd either forgotten, never learned, or what was new. She is having her first year NOT HS since I was in Kind. in '84 so she's almost at a loss. I'll be starting our baby about the time the girls are all finished. This one will start when, about '16 or '17? The now 11 yr old will be 15 or 16, so she'll still be here I guess. The other two should be gone already. I probably have my last year with the oldest next year, that's kinda sad.
I wanted to share the music that I have been listening to constantly of late. One of my dear friends from high school is the female vocalist on this album (the lead singer is her brother-in-law). The entire album is based on Song of Solomon and is just great, unique music, and some beautiful arrangements of words that will be familiar to us all. Anyway, the album is by Andrew Rose Gregory & The Color Red Band. I downloaded the whole album off of band camp, and I think you can listen to parts of it for free. It is really worth a listen!
I love to read Song of Solomon. It is so powerful. I will have to checkout the band.
Who is your favorite person in the bible? (After Jesus)
It changes all the time but right now I would have to say Joshua. He just showed so much courage and trust in God. I can't imagine the pressure he felt when God was like 'Hey Moses is dead so now you get to lead the people, hop to it let's go." You know?
I think about Joshua. It must of have been hard. It would have made me crazy to incharge of so many people.
Myself I LOVE Joesph (in OT) He is so strong and takes all the "bad things" with grace and forgivness. His life touches me every time I read it.
I think it's whomever I'm reading at the time. I have been reading Daniel, so I'm sorry to see it end. Now on to Hosea, and ya, so it goes. I have favorite stories, favorite passages, but favorite characters, I just don't think I have one. :)
I love to read the bible and see the "backround" people. Like Elizabeth in Luke. I alway think about her around Christmas. What was she thinking with a husband whom could not speak and then he tells her she is going to have a baby?? OR Noah's wife and sons, Did think that Noah lost his mind. Then here comes the water.....That is the stuff I like to think about.
The pastor and I had a brief "talk" about the letter. He said that he is talking to the elders about it. Maybe just. Maybe just this will move things in a good direction.
Is anyone ready for fall? I'm not I HATE Sept. I just hate it.
MrsKoeh- How are you feeling? Ready for baby?
I would be ready for Fall if we actually had fall here. Instead it seems like the rainy season is making it's appearance a little early. It has rained the last 5 day straight :(
Fall? It's not even really close yet. Cooling off but not quite there yet. I love fall though. It's a little bla here though with the desert and pretty well no trees. Esp not around my house. Growing up in the Appalachian Mnts then in the Ozarks, it's just not the same AT ALL.
I'm tired today. Hubby was out working in the field with the hay until 4 AM so I didn't sleep well till after then. He says I'm silly. Lol Other than that, doing well. :)
Ready for baby? Um, no. Lol I still have a TON to do.
FALL- Starts all the B-days...So that means see my inlaws and ALL of my family. We have a B-day every month till...NOW April. LOL
I hate Sept. So I keep my head down and try to make it though. Just remembered I have the LORDS SUPPER in two weeks I so forgot that it was this month.
Anyway Have wonderful WEEKEND everyone.
Oh don't talk about birthdays. We have a total (not all live here or need recognition) but we have 4 just this week. My MIL, 2 SILs and 1 BIL. Then the rest of the month, well, you should see the calendar. It's loaded. My Mom's bday too, and my parent's 40th anniversary this month. Next month, not much. Just our 4th anniversary and a SIL's 15th. November, well, that's loaded. There's several including mine, the week before Christmas, then January has siblings and relatives on both sides.... Feb is hubby and his sis.... Ya. It never ends. But with both sides being big families (over 50 cousins not to mention 2nd cousins from over 2 dozen pairs of aunts and uncles, and a total of 18 siblings, with working on 2 dozen nieces and nephews, it gets crazy).
SO I feel ya!
