In a previous post I had mentioned some steps that I have taken toward scheduling the family in all our daily activies.  It has been wonderful so far and I expect it will be more than wonderful when I can completely finish it .

Daughter #7 has a class in document processing.  She had a couple of paragraphs that focused on time.  As I was grading her timed writing I could not help but chuckle how it is no accident that our scheduling and the paragraphs come together.  It will be part of the focus as I finish the schedule.  I also thought it was worth sharing.  

(This was taken from our school text, "Keyboarding and Document Processing-Second Edition", published by A Beka Book, in Pensacola, Florida, page 295.)

     Time is an important resource God has given each of us.  It cannot be bought, sold, borrowed, lent, saved, multiplied, or manufactured; it can only be spent.  Unused portions of time disappear and can never be regained.  Every day each of us receive twenty-four hours of time like every other person on earth.  The difference is that some people can get more out their time allotment than others.  How can you manage the time you have?  Managing time really means managing yourself by making the best use of your time.

     You are in charge of the time given to you.  No one else can spend it for you.  It this your treasure and responsibility.  It must be carefully guarded, for there are enemies lurking about that will influence your to squander it.  Schedule devotions into your plan each day.  Through it all take time for God.  You can use your time wisely not by rushing here and there but by careful planning.  Careful planning and setting priorities can prevent the necessity for frantic rushing that usually results in mistakes and poorly done work. 

I trust that your day is a wonderful one!

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!

Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!

A Couple of Pictures

I have a couple of pictures to share.  Here is a picture of our newest grandbaby!

Introducing "Mildred Millie Maude".  No, that is NOT her name.  Let's just say when Son #2 and Daughter-in-law #2 decided on a name, before she was born, I would refer to her by her name-to-be.  Not once did anyone ever correct me that I was pronouncing it wrong until about 5 days before she was born.  Dear Son asked me to repeat  her name, not once, not twice, but three times before I realized he was "making fun" of the way I was pronouncing the name. He is not the only one who poked fun at me.  I guess I put the emphasis on the wrong syllable!  So, this ol' Mammi decided to come up with a name until I can either take speech lessons and learn to pronounce it, or a nick name!  {just a side note, Son is NOT impressed with my "name" for her.  oh well, life goes on!}

Here is a picture of 8 of our nesters, and "guard" dog, Lucy.  This was taken last night, October…
