Hi ladies!  It's 84 here today, but it snowed this morning back home, I wish I could be there.

 

I still haven't heard anything about student teaching other than 2 schools denied me (because they wanted only students from the state university apparently).  We are trying more schools though and hopefully I will here something soon.

 

Can I also ask for prayers for some family issues that are going on?  A couple Friday's ago I decided to cut off contact with my mother (for a lot of reasons that stem all the way from my childhood as well as the way she has been treating me now), well it wasn't even an hour after that that I got an email from my Uncle telling me my grandfather (my mom's biological dad) had passed away.  Now my mom is trying to convince me to accept money from my step-grandma to pay for me to go to his memorial.  I really want to go, but I don't want to take the money from my grandma and I will 'hopefully' be student teaching at the time as well.  I just don't know what to do.  My grandfather would have wanted me to do anything I had to to graduate.

WOW! about the student teaching. I will keep praying.

 

Family why is it so hard?? I will never understand. I will pray for wisdom for you.

 

My brother drives me nuts. I watch his son A. A does all the things that we do...My brother does not care. On top of that my brother is keeping something from me...not sure what BUT i can tell.

 

Anyway family

My mom is just very manipulative, and has a tendency to have a complete disconnection with the world around her.  I have already forgiven her for the things she has done in my past, but I can't move on with a relationship with her until she accepts that they actually happened.  She will say that she accepts it and it is sorry, but then 2 days later she is doing the same thing and saying she isn't the one with the problem-everyone else is.  It's just frustrating and tiring, and I need to focus on my little family right now instead of her drama.  I honestly sometimes wonder if my Mom has the ability to love anyone but herself.  Anyway, it's a really long story that I won't bore y'all with...  I pray that some day I can have a relationship with her, but right now I just can't.

 

Is there anything I can pray for y'all about?

Not me..Florence needs prayer. She is in her 70's and is not feeling well. Dr is not sure what is wrong. She is a wonderful sister in the Lord. She is an Elder in my book. If I needed prayer I would go to her...she does not want to ask for help...she has not even shared the need with to many people. She is bless and in the Lord's hands. Praise the Lord no matter what happens.

 

WOW 20 days left this year upsidedown.gif Counting down here. I'm thinking about all the things that happened this year.

post #488 of 526

I will be praying that she starts feeling better.

Tevet 1/ Dec 14-- On this day, the mountain tops became visible after the flood (Gen 8:5)

 

I'm enjoying have  people over my house for chanukkah. I love the light and warm feeling it gives. I don't want to see it end.candle.gif

 

I'm reading Richard Wurmbrand's Tortured for Christ He is the founder of the Voice of the Martyrs. I keep thinking about would I stand under that kind torture? What about my children? Are we teaching our children the pure Gospel? It is so heart breaking that we can go to church and hear false teaching...some are being lead away from the Master

.

OK I'm going to leave it at that.

Hey, can I join you guys? I've been cruising the boards here for a while without ever joining, so I finally joined this week. I just found this particular thread today, though, and what a welcome sight it was. Briefly, I live in conservative, evangelical, Southern Baptist South Carolina, have a 3 year old and am pregnant w/my second (due end of May). Even though I was born and raised here, I so don't fit in. Husband and I are members of the most "liberal" SBC church around, but even so, I stick out and don't have anyone much to discuss spiritual matters with, so I'm looking for some virtual community.

post #491 of 526

Of course you can join, welcome!  I'm Meagan, an Texas mama and Army wife that has been transplanted to Hawaii.

Just jump right in. I "stick out" also. I'm a Messianic Jew and love to read and study the Bible from that view point. I also like to hear your point of view. I believe that we are all one in Messiah. If you believe in Him. I really don't like the current church that we are going to....My husband and I keep "talking" about it.

 

I have three kids. 7yrs, almost 4yrs, and 8 months. I stay home and watch my nephew for some $$.

 

Tonight was the last night of Chanukkah. We had more then a few guest. It was nice to have people come and talk about the Lord. It made me really miss teaching.

post #493 of 526

Oh fabulous! Thanks for the welcome. We keep "talking" about it, too, but if often feels like a divorce that we don't have a "good reason" for pursuing. I'm spending a lot of time praying about it right now. I teach 3,4 and 5th grade Sunday School at our church, even though I'm not very good with children (the women tend to get assigned kid duty). I would much rather be involved in a different way, but have struggled to find a spot. I think around here, the choices are just so very, very similar that I don't have any answers. It's just a major matter of prayer right now.

 

Meagan, I can't imagine being that far from home! I've never lived more than a half-hour's drive from Mom and Dad's, but I work in a city that has an Air Force base, so I've got a few friends who are transplants several times over. That's wild!

lewprivette- I keep praying for the pastor. I have hope that he will make some real change. I had a good talk with him today.

 

John16n33- How are you doing??? Student teaching??

 

I have to go.

post #495 of 526

I admit I get very homesick, but I think Dh is going to get out after his contract is up so we will be headed home in the next few years more than likely.

 

Nazsmum- Still not much word on the student teaching.  One of the teachers I observed with (at a really good Christian Academy here) said she would be willing to let me student teach with her.  But we have to get approval from the principal and then the school board before that can happen.  I know God has a plan, so I am trying to be patient and wait for him to reveal it.
