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!!

They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back!
