A Heritage of the Lord

Psalm 127:3-5 3 Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord:
and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man;
so are children of the youth.
5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them:
they shall not be ashamed,
but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. I just finished reading a post from Deep Roots at Home.  I must admit that Jacqueline is one of my favorite authors in the blogging world.  I met her in person at a home school convention and she is every bit as sweet as she seems in her blog!  I am very thankful that I had the opportunity to meet her and hope I will see her again in the future! Her post The Childfree Life is wonderful!  My heart breaks for women who can not have children or whose family has been limited for reasons beyond their control.  But I think it is a message that has been lost, even in most of our churches.  I am not passing judgment, just passing on a wonderful post!

Lilla Rose

I have several hair clips that I love!  They are Flexi Clips from Lilla Rose!  Not only are they beautiful, but also quick and easy to use!  I find that the clips do not pull and grab my hair like regular "clam-claw" clips do and hold much better!

Bambi, who blogs at In the Nursery of the Nation, is hosting a giveaway!  Why not hop over to her blog and check it out!

The Last Day of Summer Vacation

Today marks the last day of summer vacation!  Sunday is  the official start of our week with worshipping in the Lord's house and Monday is the official first day of our 2013-2014 academic school year.  As much as I am ready, I feel so unprepared.  But I know the Lord has called our family to home educate and through His strength we can do it.

Even though we still have at least a month of summer left, starting school always seems like the beginning of the autumn season.  I believe we are the last of the families in our neighborhood to return to school, but have some home educating friends who still have a week of summer vacation left.  So, unofficially, GOOD BYE SUMMER, HELLO AUTUMN!

Another August Birthday

Today Son #3 turns twenty-six!  Wow!  Where does the time go?  He was just my little man and now he is a man with a family of his own!


The Not So Nice Momma

Uh...that would be me!  Definitely not nice!  I don't think if I could even find the word nice in the dictionary.  As a matter of fact, I think "that word" fell out of my dictionary. 

Bad day? You bet!  My fault?  Probably...okay, I take all the blame.  It is one of those days.  The weather here is changing.  We are expected to get some rain and the heat and humidity is starting to climb.  I have had a headache since yesterday, my right sinus is hurting with some dizziness added to it.

The house is very much out of order and needs just a little TLC to make it right.  Not a problem.  Chores have been assigned and placed in chore packs.  The nesters know the drill, they what to do. 

I see that some of the freshly folded laundry is not in the  drawers.  The reason given is "there is not enough room".  Simple solution...take out what you do not wear or like and put it in appointed basket.  I guess it is not that simple.  So I have to go into one room and go through …
