that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.

Titus 2:4-5

School Stuff

I recently came across this blog, and found this story. I really like it and it says a lot to us mothers. I have really been struggling recently with feeling like I don't spend enough time with my kids doing learning activities together,and just spending time with the kids reading or whatever. I feel frustrated a lot that there is much that I need to get done, and I think of how much time something will take, and I will wonder how I can finish what I have to get done. I have been feeling strongly that maybe I should begin to look into another curriculum. I like my curriculum, but with three kids in school and a baby on the way, I feel like I am missing out on those heart to heart moments in favor of a schedule that MUST get done. This is something that I really need to think and pray about. I feel that another curriculum might be right, but that is a big step to take, especially as we have already bought all our books for this year. I am afraid that if I don't have something laid out for me, that I might miss something the kids should be learning. And I am not good at making my own lesson plans. I seem to jumble things up. I never want to lose my children to "mom is too busy to care about what is going on now". Anyways here is the link to this story. I hope that you will stop over at Audry's blog and read it. Great story, it's called "Sam's Story".

I just wrote that I have nothing to blog about and now I blog all this...  :)

A Block...

I have hit a block. I just can't seem to get anything written here of late. Even writing this, I don't have much to say, except I have hit a block. Hope everyone is having a great summer.

Wednesday Scriptures

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6

I have recently had a verse on my mind. It is the verse in Philippians that speaks about contentment. The verse is Philippians 4:11 and says, "Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am therewith to be content." I have been having a struggle of late with being content. I am also focusing too much on the future and not enough in the present. So I have thought of that verse a lot lately. I think of Paul and it is hard not to wonder, how could he be content with his lot in life? It is quite a verse to focus on. When I think of the persecuted church, I think that I  would struggle with contentment if I was in their place. Another verse I found about contentment is 1Timothee 6:6, " But godliness with contentment is great gain." I think I am going to put those verses up on the wall.

(a side note...I have been having trouble with comments left on my blog...some cannot leave comments and sometimes I post a comment that has been left and then it doesn't show. I hope that it will be fixed soon. Thanks for stopping by. )

Late Fourth of July Post

America is the greatest country on earth. We have amazing freedom in America, that other people in other lands can only dream about. We are an incredibly blessed nation. So for the Fourth of July, I thought that I would post my favorite singing of the National Anthem.
