A Great Quote

Trials are medicines which our gracious and wise Physician prescribes because we need them; and he proportions the frequency and weight of them to what the case requires. Let us trust his skill and thank him for his prescription.

A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity Prov 17:17

A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. Prov 18:24

Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful. Prov 27:6

Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel. Prov 27:9

Praise God for my friends. I am so grateful for godly friendships! You all are such a encouragement to me. I pray God will bless you richly for the friends you have been to me!

The Prayer of a Public Schooler

(I am so greatful to homeschool, this is so so true!) So listen up homeschool moms, may we stop and be thankful today that we are able to homeschool our children!

This isn't technically a homeschool poem BUT it does give some good reasons TO homeschool!

The Prayer of a Public Schooler

Written By A 15 yr. Old School Kid In Arizona

Now I sit me down in school

Where praying is against the rule

For this great nation under God

Finds mention of Him very odd.
If Scripture now the class recites,

It violates the Bill of Rights.

And anytime my head I bow

Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,

That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.

The law is specific, the law is precise.

Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
For praying in a public hall

Might offend someone with no faith at all.

In silence alone we must meditate,

God's name is prohibited by the state.
We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,

And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks..

They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.

To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,

And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.

It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong,

We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong.
We can get our condoms and birth controls,

Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.

But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,

No word of God must reach this crowd.
It's scary here I must confess,

When chaos reigns the school's a mess.

So, Lord, this silent plea I make:

Should I be shot;

My soul please take!

Our Weekend To Seattle, The Space Needle

We had a great time in Seattle. It only took us 2 1/2 hours to get there. Blake could hardly wait to get there. I knew for sure he would be asking 'Are we there yet mom', before we would be 10 minutes into our trip, lol, so I told him I would give him $1 if he didn't ask 'The Question'. Ya right, come on , can you expect a 5 year old to hold back from asking that dreaded question a 100 times before we get there? I was praying so, lol. We were about half way, and we stopped to grab a bite to eat............"Mom, I really don't need that dollar, I already have 20 saved so, another dollar.....ahhh I don't need it mom" . We all laughed, I looked at Blake...."Mom are we ALMOST there? Rofl........he is so funny!

We got to our hotel.....I was not impressed. Our room stunk so bad of like some sort of cleaner. The first thing I did was open the windows. After unpacking everything, we went next door to grandmas room. Blake brough a few toys with him, mostly Lego's. He was standing by the bed and dropped a leggo, so he bent down to look under the bed. "MOM, MOM, there is a ANT HILL!!!". Freaked Out, I didn't want to look under there, I HATE ants, ugh yuck! Sure enough a piece of food had been left and there were ants all over it! I went directly to the front desk and asked for another room. They moved about 4 doors down from us, no ants there lol.

After getting settled in we headed for the Space Needle. Blake with his 5 year old questions, said "Mommy, is it called a needle because it has a needle at the top?" lol. Then he says, " I wonder if there will be a bunch of space men there?" He had grandpa and I in stitches laughing! I was worried that he would get scared going to the top, because you can see out, it is glass windows.

He did great and he was up to the window taking it all in! Ummm....I was the one with my eyes closed, lol. I did NOT like how it shook so much going up! We were able to go outside and walk around, it was very windy but blue skies, so we had GREAT views of Seattle.....breath taking views!

I will share pictures later...I need to get ready for church! Have a BLESSED Sunday :)
