Perserverance

This was such a blessing to me, it was yesterday's evening devotional from Charles Spurgeon's devotional. I hope someone else receives a blessing and edification from it as well, enjoy! Acts 14:22 "Continue in the faith." Perseverance is the badge of true saints . The Christian life is not a beginning only in the ways of God, but also a continuance in the same as long as life lasts. It is with a Christian as it was with the great Napoleon: he said, Conquest has made me what I am, and conquest must maintain me. So, under God, dear brother in the Lord, conquest has made you what you are, and conquest must sustain you. Your motto must be, Excelsior. He only is a true conqueror, and shall be crowned at the last, who continueth till war's trumpet is blown no more. Perseverance is, therefore, the target of all our spiritual enemies. The world does not object to your being a Christian for a time, if she can but tempt you to cease your pilgrimage, and settle down

Feminist Pioneer says Traditional Family WORKS!

She is one of feminism's pioneers and founder of the UK's first refuge for victims of domestic violence, but after decades of fighting for women's rights Erin Pizzey has come to a startling conclusion: women should stay at home and look after the children while men go out to work. Her revelations don't stop there. Pizzey also believes that with mothers away from home working, their child's development will be harmed. Her views are supported by new research conducted by Birbeck College in London, which suggests that the longer children are in childcare, as opposed to with parents, the more aggressive they become . In the programme, she says: "I think the traditional way the family was run has been going for thousands of years and it works . What I see now is men disenfranchised from their roles. Women are lost because they now have to work full-time. They don't have a choice. There is no proper child care, there's nobody home when the children come

Hair Curled with Small Barrel Curling Iron

I've shared my hair curled with curlers and a regular size curling iron, but I haven't shown it done with my small barrel curling iron. I only curl the permed portion of my hair - so from the shoulders up its my new growth. I use a curling iron that I have had for at least 10 years! It doesn't give too much heat but enough to set a curl, so my hair doesn't really get damaged with this one and I will share more about it in the Hair Tools post coming up. I did a photo with the flash and without, so you can you see how it hides the perm perfectly! Since my hair was permed with a tight winding spiral, using the small barrel curling iron fits with the permed wave creating a better look. I curled my hair a few hours before taking the photo and was out in the rain, so the curls aren't as tight as they were before the rain! ( click photo to enlarge )

Funny Thoughts

Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue. Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them. Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it. Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker. If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it. It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply be kind to others. Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on. Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late. The second mouse gets the cheese. ( one of my favorites! ) When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane. Birthdays are good for you, the more you have, the longer you live. You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to on

Pushing our Kids to Grow Up too Fast

Not many people share my viewpoint as I have found but rather they are in a hurry to get their child through school quickly so they can graduate early. For what? So she can spend most of her childhood studying? Recently, a child about my daughter's age got together with my daughter for some playtime. From what I understand, this child is in advanced learning ( we are talking Kindergarten here folks! ) and being "pushed" into the advancement by long school hours. So my daughter starts talking about Dora and My Little Pony toys only to get shot down by this "advanced" peer saying those are for babies and Hannah Montana is all the rage. I overheard ( thank goodness! ) and was quite appalled! Is this where higher learning has gotten that little girl? To shun toys for an immodest role model?? I will let my little girl play with her toys as long as she wants! Thank the Lord she knows when we go through Walmart, and she sees Hannah Montana, she proclaims - &q

Enthusiasm

I'm a believer in enthusiasm and that it is also something you must give your children and teach them. For instance since my daughter was a baby, I tried to make the most mundane things enthusiastic - from going to the mailbox, to drinking water lol. She loves to drink water and has since! Oh and the mailbox visits are to her - total excitement. I also trained her to be enthusiastic about cleaning and even doing her homeschool. They have all deemed worth the effort because she is enthusiastic and gets excited over a lot of things and life in general. In the morning when we get up, most of the time I tell her, or she beats me to it and she tells me "It's going to be a wonderful day!" I get excited over the little things and she follows suit. If they don't see it in YOU, then what will they learn from you? I've been made fun of by some aquaintances ( would call them friends but well, friend is a word I give to those who earn it ).....they will laugh bec

Baptism of the Holy Spirit; Bibical Proof

This is taken from a recent Bible study and I felt led to share it.  Maybe you have never really searched the scriptures and just believed what some preacher told you.  It is time to find out for yourself!  No one can refute the Words of God, so let His Words speak!  ( this does not include the OT scriptures or even all of the scriptures in the Bible about it, but answers a few questions that outline the Biblical answer ) Who talked about it? John the Baptist (foretelling) - Matthew 3:11 "I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire :" Jesus - John 1:38-39 "He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified."

Poll Results: Wasted Time

The poll question was: I waste too much time (check all that apply) Cleaning   3 (5%) Internet/Computer   43 (79%) TV   17 (31%) Reading   9 (16%) Crafts/Hobbies   3 (5%) Gardening   1 (1%) Phone   11 (20%) Other   8 (14%) I don't waste time   3 (5%) What I wanted to show in doing this post, was the fact that we all waste time in one shape, form or the other.  Now, I see we all do except for the 3 people that checked that they don't -how come I just don't believe that?  I mean taking the poll was probably wasted time hehe.  =0  I mean, they never waste time?  If any of you 3 would like to leave a comment and please tell us how all your 24 hours each day is perfect and there is no time wasted, I would really like to know! Notice how the top 3 are all technology !  Technology is wonderful but at the same time we can abuse it and let it eat up our time.  There are wonderful time-useful things to do online, watch on TV ( discovery channel ) and those
