oh my lands;) long time no see!

Hello out there! Its 1:51 am.  I cant sleep. Thought i would come on here and revisit some old blogs. Its so odd to be back here. I feel like cringing as i read some of my old stuff. lolSO UPDATE!The kiddos and hubby are all AWESOME;D Home schooling is Fantastic. I (with one of my bffs;) am a youth leader at church. Which could be interesting to write about at some point. love love LOVE my teens. one min they got it all together. Most have gone to church from a very young age. they know the answers that would make most yout leaders happy to hear but ist so AWESOME in the truest sense of the word when God moves in and we all get REAL.  I love it.Im sewing like a crazy lasy;) always a new project. I feel bad though. Im sewing for everyone else that its getting harder and harder to do for my own babies:( I pull a lot of all nighters around the holidays and birthdays...  Man Im not as young as i used to be;) Seems like if i stay up all night i fall asleep during school. hahaha My kiddos and i LOVE having school in bean bag chairs around the heater;) so its super easy for me to fall asleep. ;)Its strange to be here. Im on Facebook a lot. But here is where i started breaking out of my shell ans writing. Cant express how much that made me grow. Got a bit messy at times but thats life;) anyhoo. I love you guys, who ever may find this;) Sort of like sending out a message in a bottle... I did that once as a kid. I sometimes thing about it and wonder if anyone found it. I hope it made them smile;)~Kori~ =]B hahaha

"friends"

Ive been wondering if facebook and other social medias are worth my time and effort. In this age of instant updates, I feel like we are missing something, and at the same time biting off more than we can chew...

Its like a party. With your closest family and friends. Along with 200 plus acquaintances. This party isn’t hosted by a patriarch, we all come and go as we please in our pjs and flip flops. The rules of Etiquette were not written for this kind of shindig Im beginning to think someone should get on that.

Each of us brings something different to the potluck. Some are bright and bubbly chatty folks, moving from one person to another genuinely interested in how everyone's doing (thats me btw;). We post on walls, comment on photos, embracing the facebook family as a whole. We try to mind what our mommas taught us. If we don’t have anything nice to say, we don’t say anything at all.

Not everyone’s mom passed on that nugget of wisdom. They too, are going from person to person. Genuinely interested in what folks have to say, because it gives them fuel for the roast they have going with their gossip buddies. I grimace at the computer when I read the comments posted by people in turmoil. Followed by vultures circling in with their two cents. We need to be very careful what dirty laundry we air in cyber space. When in doubt, send a personal message to a confidant.

Theres the really lonely ones on here too... They seem to post updates that make you want to show up at their door with a box of tissues and some cookies like "WHATS WRONG! IM HERE FOR YOU!!!" but we dont really do that, do we? No, its just facebook, only weirdoes show up in person! We ’re way to evolved for small town antics like that! This is one of my biggest pet peeves with social medias. People are looked at as numbers boosting our self worth rather than being worth while people. We need to bring neighborly love into our social networking. Love thy neighbor as thyself;) Go out on a limb and PM somebody you can see is in need of a friend.

No party is complete with out the dark and bruiting types. They pace back and forth, carefully guarding their profile bubble. They seem to have no choice but to log in and be here. All their friends are here. Its sad, but sometimes people we love get lazy and forget how to use a telephone. I dont know about you, but I have been dragged to a party or two by my friends. Ive sat in the corner, eating cheese puffs, waiting for my ride to want to go home. Getting more and more resentful, feeling like I am wasting my time just because I want to be with them. In the mean time, the random friend requests start rolling in and its hard to say no.. So we put up with just about everyone.

Which bring me to the loud bunch at the party. I think we have all had someone who shows up to the party completely drunk. They seem to have no brain mouth filter, no common sense when it comes to TMI. When you scroll thru your news feed and see their status, or photo someone dared them to post, its like they just streaked in front of you. Come on guys! I feel like some folks forget they may be posting in their skivvies, but real live people see it. Or maybe that’s what they are counting on… Just saying, its a fine line between being silly, and acting a fool. We need to check our hearts before every key stroke. Yeah we can delete it later, but it will never really be gone. If you have to think, “Dude, I wonder if my dad saw that..” Theres only so many times you can plead temporary insanity. I cant help but wonder... With all these hackers sending viruses, if one of them hacked into your Personal Messages history and posted it for all your 348+ facebook friends to see, would you want to go out in public and face them in real life?

Its not all fun and games either. Families can be torn apart,. If your not careful to stay accountable to your spouse, then it can be very awkward to have an ex contact you. How many divorces point to social media as part of the problem? It starts harmless enough. After all, were all grown ups, we can talk about the good old days with out sugar coating them.. The harm comes when misconstrued stories of lost love(s) start sounding more interesting and fun than the daily grind of real life. The chase is always more fun, and shorter, than the consequences. Keep yourself accountable to your spouse, and to God.

If we’re going to be movers and shakers on a regular basis, we need to be familiar with the account settings. Take the time and double check your security, and personal settings. There’s a new feature that lets you unsubscribe from a friend that you like, but want to hear less from. You can check out their profile page without having your news feed bogged down.. In extreme cases, you can block the troublemaker. Which means you cant see them and they cant see you, even on a mutual friends page. You can even make it impossible for anyone to post to your wall! Forcing them to PM you or chat. This cuts out the awkward spats that can break out when folk misread the tone in a comment and respond on the defensive. Its so important to protect your personal information. A lot of times strangers can sneak a peek for their own mischievous gain.. No one likes a party crasher. Above all, before you click and post, Pause and think. Chances are most people will get to read it before you delete it.

Road Raged Christians, are we on the right path?

I spent a day in the big city of Pittsburgh last weekend. It felt a little out of place for this country bumpkin, but my friend Altah recently moved there with her sweet little family and we were long over due for a visit. Its been strange having her live 100 miles away, we have been 5 minuets away (if you take Zombie Road) sense we have been friends and we were so used to last minuet fishing and shopping and play dates with the seven;). Now when we want to get together, we actually have to have a plan, gas money and a gps (come to think of it, one of those would have been handy quite a few times before the move too lol;) Anyhoo, I haven't driven in a big city in a year. Erie doesn't really count... We have gone to New York City a few times, that's definitely some scary driving! I almost got run over by a dump truck...  and Ive gone through Washington DC at rush hour  with two babys in the back seat fussing after the long trip. That was pretty awful (I was pregnant with Cloud at the time too). So ive had my fair share of city driving to know Ill be fine as long as i keep up with the other cars and PAY ATTENTION!I made it down most of 79 with out any trouble. The construction was a little backed up, but no biggie. Once i got into the city, It started to go bad. I got honked at and almost hit by a guy who wanted on the same exit at a faster speed than i was going:( that was my first mean guy experience. I got in trouble a few other times and ended up lost on what i thought would be the wrong side of the river... at this point my gps got lost too:( After some quick phone calls, i was on the road again feeling a little better. turns out i was supposed to cross the river, just not there... and Dale said he would come get me if i wanted and that made me feel better;) I got honked at more  and even flipped off and called "STUPID*%#$@!" by the time i got to their house.=( Everyones just in such a hurry! and they all seem so mad! It hurt my feelings that i got beeped at so much. I was glad when i got there cuz i knew Altah was driving us around the rest of the day AND she has heated seats=DWe got to talking about the difference in pace from country life to city life. I think the most fun we had on country roads (gosh, theres so many storys!) was  trying to catch a run away horse (and his little miniature pony friend;) from the farm up the road, in the rain, barefoot... Yeah, good times~ OH! or "hummm which way do you want to do?" "go straight, that logging road looks fun!" hahaha some steep cliffs and no trespassing signs later we found ourselves somewhere between Sugar Lake and Cochranton... the best part was when we caught a glimpse of a truck stalking us, we just knew they were axe murderers! hehehe its so easy to get all worked up;)  The words that come to mind for city driving is Rat race. All the cars have scratches or dents... We saw a car accident, well actually, we got stuck in traffic for about 20 minuets and Then we saw the accident. this red car was crumpled like a piece of paper. Another car was being towed away and the cops were directing traffic. Of course, the accident happened right where we needed to turn. so we kept going up into the plaza.  We both guessed  how that car could have gotten so smashed, the speed limit was low and the road was leading up to a big mall and restaurants... Up the hill more, there was a gap in the median for cars to get thru to the lane leading back down on to the highway. There was a little red car sticking out into traffic trying to get into that side. He had about 3 feet of his car in the lane... A white car in front of him had about 6 feet of clearance between him and the car ahead, In city measurements, a bus could have fit;) Red car honked at White car and motioned for him to move up so he wouldn't be sticking out into on coming traffic... well, white car didn't like being honked at and they started yelling and waving their hands. We kept moving along and found another bank. about 15-20 minuets later, we could see little red car and white car from our vantage point higher on the hill,  they hadn't budged. white car man had his window down and his arm hanging out giving off airs of big and badness. Little red car man sat frustrated, and shaking his head. I felt bad for both of them, I couldn't help but wonder what if Little red car guy would have honked nicer (like not Blared on the horn)... maybe white car guy didnt notice he was trying to get in the lane and felt attacked by the mean honking...... or if white car guy would have been a little more humble and put himself in red car guys shoes, he would have moved up and they could have dont the head nod wave thing and made friends... I was sad by this and other displays of selfish mean spirited and dangerous driving...After all this, and a few near run ins with people trying to get in front of us. I asked her how she deals with the stress of city driving. Her basic answer was you toughen up. You learn to honk back and not take it to heart when people flip you off or yell because that just how everyone gets when they drive in the city. Mean. Now thats not Altahs preference at all, she, like me, took a lot of the beeps and flipoffs to heart and had a hard time hardening up...  I suppose I get all that, but again, I wondered... What if everyone who claimed to be a follower of Christ drove like they were  keeping their eyes fixed on Jesus? How many battles are made harder to win because we allow ourselves to harden our hearts, just a little at first and honk back. What if we started praying for and blessing the ones who cut us off and nearly ran us off the road. I know it sounds kind of nutty, but seriously, we are going to have to give an account for every word we say! I know from my own heart that if i let myself get mad or annoyed and start cussing, its awfully hard to read my bible that night or pray knowing that i behaved like the old me and not the new. The world says its ok to fly off the handle and curse out a stranger.But the Bible says in 1 Peter3:8 Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. 9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. 10 For, “Whoever would love life and see good daysmust keep their tongue from evil and their lips from deceitful speech.11 They must turn from evil and do good; they must seek peace and pursue it.12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer,but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”I dont know about you guys, but when i get in the car and i know im settling in for a long drive, my mind starts to run through the day. Its like switching the tv of my brain to the highlights reel:) this time it was the Greatest hits of Kori and Altah! I giggled to myself remembering funny things from the day, which rabbit trailed into past memories like getting locked in the fair grounds and having to bust our way out, Or the time i made her turn around and go the long way home because i was scared to go down Zombie road with a full moon and fog... hahaha OH or the time I sat at a red light for a whole second before imagining it was green and driving on thru, then i couldn't get why she was freaking out... ahhh funny times:)  I thought about how we should all be nicer to each other, because how could that be a bad thing!!!Galatians 6 says 8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. ~This also made me think of a lesson I learned (the hard way;) a few months ago, Feelings, how ever justified they may be, rarely reap a righteous harvest. Feelings like anger, pride, woe is meish, alll of them are so fleeting and should not be trusted to guide us though our daily lives. We truly need to be slow to speak and slow to anger (like James 1:19;)I was deep in thought when out of the corner of my eye i saw lights in my side view mirror..I felt that prickle of panic, after a day of stressful driving and near misses,  I really wanted some cruise time, just me and my brain.... Of all the people they could have followed, they had to pick me, the 68-70mph comfort zone driver?? I figured they would pass once they saw i wasn't their speed. About 20 minuets later I started getting nervous, i dont like having people follow me that close on the highway! I had a semitruck about half a mile ahead of me, its not like we had to be in gridlock... I felt myself getting more and more annoyed and then after and about 45 minuets of gripping the wheel, sitting up straight in my seat driving i shouted "JUST PASS ME ALREADY!!!" phew, I said it! I felt a little better... then it was like i hit a brick wall of humble pie. You see, when i got on the interstate, there were high beams all around, so i tilted my mirrors down so they wouldn't blind me, but i could tract their movements by the reflections on the ground.  I also tilted my rear view up so it was tinted... the lights that i had been trying to out run were my own.  guh, I felt so stupid... Serves me right for trying out the shouting. sinking to the worldly level of road rage... It isnt me, and it didnt make me feel better. I let my  blind spot that I created fool me into thinking i was being attacked and pursued when that couldn't have been farther from the truth!. Yet, how often is that the case all along. We can be our own worst enemies when we focus in on the wrong perspective.  Yes that person may have just cut you off, but you know what? no one got hurt and we should say a prayer for their safety. What about the times accidents happen? well, if its a fender bender, exchange info, get a tow truck and  know there's a lesson in it. Pray for the person before you drive away. Sharing Gods love should be our first reaction... Nothing happens with out Gods approval. Just like the Sunday driver that you end up behind on the back roads. Maybe theres a lesson for us in our planning skills, maybe we should plan on leaving earlier. So we can obey the speed limit. I know we country girls often feel like we know these roads like the back of our hands, we have been on then since we started driving... but everyday is a new one, and today may be the day a little boy is out walking on the road looking for his dog that ran away, today may be the day a mother and daughter are taking their horse on the road for the first time. You never know what is around the next bend and its dangerous to drive like we are the only ones out here.  When i get behind someone going slow, It doesn't  get me annoyed with them, I start thinking, huh, maybe Gods telling me to slow it down and consider them my guardian angel rather than a road block. Ive come up to accidents that i would have been a part of, it it hadn't been for me getting "stuck" behind someone obeying the speed limits...  Im big on memory verses on pretty index cards. I think we as believers should have Gods word at the ready where ever we may be. If road rage is giving the devil a foothold (Ephesians 4:26 “In your anger do not sin” Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold. ) If your finding it hard to fellowship with a clear conscience knowing that you just said some mean nasty things to someone you should have been blessing... I would suggest seeking out some key verses about taming the tongue. James paints us this beautiful picture in chapter3:2 We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.3 When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. 4 Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. 5 Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. 6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. ~Let that sink in and He goes on~9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. 11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12 My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water. I dont know if im making much sense, but the main point is WE GATTA DRIVE LIKE WERE HEADING TO THE PROMISE LAND!!!! COME ON GUYS AND GALS! LETS FOCUS UP THE MIRRORS AND DRIVE WITH A PURPOSE!!! to bring Glory and Honor to God our father who was and is and is yet to come. GLORY HALLELUJAH AMEN!;)

Black Best Christian! ~Wuaah~

[if gte mso 9]> Normal/w:View 0/w:Zoom /w:WordDocument <![endif]

  When you become a Christian, then the old you passes away and you are a new creation. Yes?

God will let you live just about the same way for a while, then he will start showing you how to be better. Always showing you ways to improve. Yes?

And when you see the hypocrisy of your old life, in the light of your new, Its a new level of understanding and standards. Yes?

Then how is it that we have so many Christians claiming to follow Jesus yet they live their lives comforted by false doctrines and blindly following wolves in sheep's clothing.

We need to pray for the Body of Christ. we are to be his hands and feet, yet so many of us are going with the flow. We need a revival! Amen?! Amen~

;) I thought of another way of expressing what is on my heart:) ill try and type it best i can. I sparred some of the students tonight and I caught an elbow with my pinky knuckle..OUCH*IE:) hahahaok, so just about everyone knows about the belt ranking system;) we dont use one, we have our own system, its called when u get there youll know (well, we have one, we just dont make a big deal to the students about it;) Belts lead to pride and pride leads to bragging;)

White belts are new Christians. Fresh in the faith! Praise the LORD!! WooOOHoooO! Happy Birthday little sissy & bro!LOVE YA! =)

Next is Yellow belts~This is the group who knows the basics of Sunday school,and they are reading thru the Bible, learning ALL the Chosen ppl, and battles :) for now its enough to process.

Then they mature into green! (my fav color btw;) Greenies start to question parts of the Bible. Where was God before he created the Earth, Why did the Israelite s FORGET so OFTEN! At this point, you are learning So much and putting the knowledge out there for discussion. Hopefully you have someone Higher in the belt system to talk to, a mentor. But even if you do, your BIGGEST sensei should be the Holy Spirit.

Brown is a rank you get after many trials and tears. I like to think of it as muddy;) This is a season in your life when all the Sunday school lessons, daily devotionals and memory verses are put to the test, thru you. The Devil will try and make you question everything. This is when you find out if you have a religion, or a relationship with the Living God.

Then theres a black belt. Black Belt Christians still face hard times! This is the time when you will have to stand and fight. hold fast to Jesus's teachings. The world will hate you, but we are to expect that. It hated Him first. This is a time when the Lord will speak to you in every thing you do. The holy Spirit will tug on your hearts strings and let you know when you are straying off the path. If you lean away, you may very well slip into a rut. Black Belt Christians are teachers. Able to lead others, to sooth the younger ones with out watering down the Gospel. a baby cant grow on watered down milk!

Hebrews 5: 11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. 12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word ALL OVER again. You need MILK, not solid food! 13Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. 14But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.

I know its a little silly to put it this way. My brain is still in the gym. My hand hurts too:)

But i just now became aware of the levels, and it was either try and explain them like this, or go with Donkey Kong;) hahahahahaLove ya'll!=)

Oh be careful little eyes what you see~

  Oi Vay~ This has been a hard blog to write. I feel like SO much of my heart gets lost in the black and white text.

Ive written and deleted a blog about my drawing,  i think Ill take a stand with my Sword rather than try to explain what God has been telling me in my own hollow words. He speaks to my heart~

                                                    

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

James 1: 26 Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. 27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world

Luke 11:  33  (Jesus said)  “No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light. 34 Your EYE is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are healthy,  your whole body also is full of light. But when they are unhealthy,  your body also is full of darkness. 35 See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness. 36 Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be just as full of light as when a lamp shines its light on you.”

Matthew 18: 9 And if your eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell.

Hebrews 5: 11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. 12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word ALL OVER again. You need MILK, not solid food! 13Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. 14But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.

Matthew 15: 9 They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.’10Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen and understand. 11 What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.”Matthew 16: 24Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? 27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.

Mark 12:29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.30Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’31The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

my spontaneous vow of ~silence~

Ive decided to do as my momma always told me... "if you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all."  Ive hit a road block in my spiritual battle... more like a mine field of DOOM!! Blood and guts flying everywhere! BOOM! ;)

I had high hopes when i woke up this Sunday morning;) i had a wonderful day planned with the family all home, cozy warm, doing some crafts we have been wanting to do~ listening to Christmas music and worshiping together~ sounds lovely right? well, one thing lead to another and no one wanted to play along with the montage of joy i imagined;) I got sooo very frustrated when my hubby TURNED ON THE XBOX... it was like a slap in the face. I thought he would give me ONE DAY! ...... I said somethings to my husband. Even though it was the harshest truth of how i felt at the time, it didnt build either of us up. In fact, it may have been a little to honest (I donno about you, but I have some dark menacing thoughts ramble thru my head at times, especially when im already angry, im such an easy target.

I called my sister (love ya;) and BELLOWED my FUSTRATION, deppresion, angst, and everything thing else thats been brewing and boiling. I told her that i closed my bible this morning and was just filled with anger. God hasnt been talking to me lately. Or Ive built a wall. I am struggling with false doctrines I grew up beliving and now that i am reading the scriptures, I find things i misunderstood, and were taught differently... UGH!  Lately, the Bible has not lifted me up at all. I dont know what is happening. Actually, I do.  Im in a battle and I forgot to bring my sheild of faith!   I think ive been going to the Bible as my life line, and thats just not so! The Holy Spirit is here with me, Jesus is praying over me, God is LOVING me!  I need to break down whatever wall ive built and build my relationship with God.

After getting of the phone with my sissy,  I felt a bit better, a little recharged. I decided to make lunch for everyone and then go to my room and pray till i have to make dinner ;) well, I started cooking, and Its almost like the devil heard me say what my plans were, because things stated happening, one right after the other that were threatening to set me off in a CRAZY screaming fit!!  I was losing Patience and focus by the milla second.

Thats when it hit me, I need to SHUT UP!  If i even yelled at the dog, to get out of the garbage can 1 MORE TIME, EVERYTHING was going to spew from my mouth in a venomous rage.  The kids would have been upset, my hubby would get mad, the dog wouldn't listen anyway... there would be NO winning if i lost it.  So ive decided to give it away. Im not talking. I dont want to say whats on my mind, in my heart and running thru my brain, because it hasnt really helped so far! i WANT a change in this house. I know i set the mood, and im just not strong enough to keep this up. I cant keep a tight rein on my tongue.

                                                               

                                                                 James 3:1-12 says

1Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. 2We all stumble in many ways. If anyone is never at fault in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to keep his whole body in check. 3When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal.

4Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go.

5Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark.

6The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. 7All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea are being tamed and have been tamed by man,

8but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. 9With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness.

10Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be.

11Can both fresh water and salt a water flow from the same spring?

12My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.I dont have a 1000 people congregation to teach, I dont have a multi million dollar ministry reaching out to the far corners of the world. But I AM a teacher. Not because i homeschool, because i am entrusted with three precious souls to train in the ways of our LORD Jesus.  I have not been a very good momma lately. Its because ive lost my focus. I havent been waking up with a prayer to be filled with the holy spirit and grace! I havent really been praying at all... not like i should not as an open line of communication keeping a relationship healthy and strong.  Im suffering the consequences of being a stubborn stiff necked person.I saw the chance to turn away from sin and run in the opposite direction. Instead of opening my mouth to  "tell it like it is and how it ganna be!" I said as calmly as I could... "Im not talking for the rest of the day"  and that was it.  I want to live by actions for a while. see how things change..  We are a very cuddly family, we do show our love for each other. I say it often... but i also say a lot of other stuff to... "Stop arguing! thats IT!" "I dont care WHO started it! im finishing it!" " go to your room!"    I feel more like a referie, and its because i put myself in that position. there is a time and place for all that, but i am tired of talking, "When will this round be over? oh, ok...(20 min later) Why did u start another game?! you know i needed you!"   Im tired of yelling, Saying things i regret later,   and im tired of not being heard. Im not going to set a time and say ill talk then. I want to be holding on to Jesus, not the clock. Ill trust the holy Spirit to tell me when ive crossed the finish line.  Ive been wanting to fast, but my health hasnt permitted me to, id just get sick, dizzy pass out and grumpy.  and every time  ive thought about it, it hasn't rung true in my heart.  My problems begin with my mouth. and so its time to shut it ;)keep me in your prayers;)

a little post that grew into a heartfelt blog;)

I wrote this  on fb, as a comment to a family member;) it sorta grew into a big long winded but meaningful message that i needed to write to hear:)

What about Romans 12:9-21?

9 Love MUST be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.

10 Be devoted to one another in LOVE. Honor one another above yourselves.

11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your SPIRITUAL FEVER!!!! (WOOHHOOO) , serving the Lord.

12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

 14 BLESS those who persecute you; bless and do NOT curse.

15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.

16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.

 17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.

18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on YOU, live at peace with everyone.    (no one can control another person, there would be no wars if ppl would realize this...you cant change them, but they dont have to change you for the worst.)

9 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.    WooOO HooOOO!! hes got this!

20 On the contrary:

   “If your enemy is hungry, feed him;

   if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.

In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”

 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

If you try to live your life biased on "self" all your doing is feeding into your flesh. pride, entitlement, judgmental thoughts, all of which take away from Gods calling on your life. If I let my self live by self worth, My whole world would be one moody happy grumpy score keeping  roller coaster of emotion. Sure you can talk yourself into a state of being, but the devil is just waiting to put THAT to the test. I guarantee the pumped up self sufficient you will fail. Dont be an idiot, its moment like that that make the devil smile.  Shouldnt our family history prove this all the more? how many generations have to go thru the same cycles until we stop trying to control others, letting them control your actions and dig a bigger hole for the next generation.

The real question here is, and yes its the question we all need to ask ourselves multiple times a day!!!! What would Jesus do? If this makes you laugh, or think of the Jesus freak movement back in the 90s with the bracelets and t shirts,  you are missing the point. In every action, there is an opportunity to shine for God. Was Jesus being selfish when he healed the sick and drove out demons? was Jesus being selfish when he fed the hungry?   Was Jesus thinking about himself when he SUFFERED AND GAVE HIS LIFE for our sins? Knowing that so many would mock him.

This life is not about being a door mat. Its all how you see it.  Sure a door mat gets walked on, muddy boots get stomped and wiped all over, my dog PEES on my door mat!!!  But the door mat is a tool, useful, welcoming and needed to bring people safely into the warmth and safety of the home. Christians are called to be tools for God.  Like door mats;) We are called to LOVE one another, even more so our enemies. So that thru us, they too might see the light and be welcomed into Gods family. There is nothing the Blood of Jesus cant wash away. If we keep tru to the faith, and seek HIS guidance,  we can see we are not really door mats being used and abused, carrying around everyone elses muddy messy burdens... We are servants to the God most high, and dearly loved children of God. THAT is the truth of self.  The sooner we (im talking about our family) start living it out, the sooner we can fully claim our inheritance as Gods children.  and really experience love and life to the fullest. There is such a GREAT Calling! Why are none of us wanting to LISTEN? cycles go round and round for a reason. They have to be broken to bleed out the poison.

Boys and their toys.....

Its not like this is anything new... my Husband was a gamer looong before I met him. When I was playing with barbie dolls and the original polly pockets, he was playing Nintendo or any video game thingy he could get his hands on.  Some would call it an addiction. Really, its not... He just never grew out of it. How could he? as he got older, the games grew to suit his generation!

Sure I played Duck hunt and Mario brothers as well as other super Nintendo games... but I played them in the winter time, after romping around outside for hours and hours. It didnt appeal to me like it did him. I also  had to fight my brother and all his friends to get a turn (or go cry to momma;), if I had my friends over, and Josh had his friends over, it was strange how fast my friends would get all geeky and droll over the older boys.. all of whom in my opinion were stinky and rude. ;) Its gross that everyone thought my brother was "hot".  ick-IE!

For Dale, video games were built for him.  Boys are testosterone driven, a lot of games are geared towards that.  He has been  a big comic book reader, gamer and cartoon buff all his life. Given his childhood, it was a way to escape the craziness of his rather brutal upbringing. I think there is something to be said about the feeling of holding a controller.  Geewiz, I donno, could it be control? ;) Games were something he could excel at, just for him. Something he could do with his friends and compete with. Competition is a corner stone of many aspects of development.  Learning how to be a good sport when you lose is one:) He once spent an entire summer grounded from tv because he got into a fight after school. Never mind the fact it was 6 against 1, him being the one.  I guess it was because he gave it as good, if not better than he got it.  He grew up in a city that it was normal to get jumped after school. (He didnt move out here to the sticks until 6th grade. He was a tough city boy, used to a fight when I met him. ) Dale has never been a video gaming couch potato. He has always been more interested in "becoming the STONGEST THERE IIIIISSSSS"  ~Testosterone, i am at peace with knowing ill never really understand it ;) 

So whats the problem you ask? Weeeeelllllll, Ill tell you.  on more than one occation, lets be honest, on more than 50! occations in reacent momory, the xbox has SUCKED OUT MY HUSBANDS COMMON SENSE AND BRAIN!!!!!!! Its getting to be REALLY ANNOYING! and depressing :( Over the years, I have ignored that 1000 yard stare he gets when he plays. He can still carry on a conversation with me. For most of our marriage, thats been enough to keep me sane~ this last october we have been together 10 years!!!! WooOOOP WhooOOOP!! ;)

Ive been stewing on this for over a year, and yes, Ive nagged when it became unbearable. Im not perfect;).. I  looked up you tube videos of wives and girlfriends smashing their honeys xboxs...

While it was funny to watch,  I wouldn't do that, and ill tell you why (some of you guys out there will think im nuts, and others will wish your girl friends or wives were more like me)

I wouldn't smash his xbox because

first of all, he is the head of this household. I know that sounds 15th century to most of you, but I respect my husband, his wishes, and his property (even though by marriage, its half mine, i would call dibbs on the hard drive;)

 

Second, If i smashed it, I would be acting short sighted and as childish as I am accusing him of being...

Third, If I did, Id feel so bad id have to buy him a new one, and Im to cheap to spend the doe;)

I thought about hiding it... I knew he would be really mad and probably want to hide my sewing machine... but after he calmed down and spent the day sulking in the gym, I know he would come around and embrace the conditions I would set for finding out where I hid it.

 All I would ask for is 2 weeks... Two weeks to detox from the xbox.... He is BIG into healthy living! He actually likes to fast every now and agian! I KNOW he would see the benefits from a little xbox fasting (after he was done spewing with rage;)... I woulnt ask him to do this alone! i would be more than willing to give up something He finds a distraction on my time! Something he thinks is annoying that I do... Though I am pretty perfect, So i dont think he would really want to change anything;) hahaha well, maybe He would like to watch a movie with out having me poke him with my ice cold feet until he rubbs them;) haha Or maybe he would want me to give up tv too... i know he doesnt like to watch Pawn Stars, or American Pickers like I do...    I would TOTALLY give up a habit, or recreation that i like and learn to give more of me to my family. 

(even though i already wake up early, cook three hearty country meals a day, bake goodie for the cookie jar and cake tray on a weekly basis, Home school, Keep the house as clean as i can with three little kids running around screaming like wild children, scrubbing the floors on my hands and knees, doing the dishes by hand because I am to old fashioned for a dish washer,  Do all the laundry, take care of the animals, run any errands at a moments notice for him, keep the grocery's in check so we dont run out of anything and starve, Change light balbs, Fix anything I can on my own so I dont have to add it to his todo lists, Take on odd and end sewing jobs for folks, clean other peoples houses. Baby sit little ones so it easier for their mommas to work out (I dont get paid for that, its more for the gym, and i looooove babies).... EVERYthing I do is for everyone elses comfort and security... but hey, if he can think of anything i can improve upon.. ) .... after some checking of my heart, I want to be honest and say that while I strive to all of the above and more, i havent been as fantastic as I want;) Im going thru a bit of a rut,  I have sorta felt like,  "well, everyone else gets always with doing less..." but thats not me. Ill be the only one standing before Jesus answering for my life decisions.

I guess thats what I want him to do. He is a wonderful provider, and I understand and embrace the fact that his Achievements in Halo bring him some kind of joy! I GET IT! I do!  But my heart has been telling me that we are missing out on SO MUCH MORE!  He teaches his morning classes, then while i am doing school with the kids, he will "hop" on for a "sec" and get his acheivments done. well,  he has been getting sucked in for about 7 hours, to him a blink of an eye....... then he has his after noon and night classes and thy run till late. He will usually watch a movie or spend time with me after the last people go home.  I adore our time together;) He is my best friend and my better half.  Because he respects me )and im so darn cute;) he is careful to keep our few hours of peace and quiet a routine. 

The thing that is annoying me is He isnt pulling his own weight when it comes to family time and  projects around the house and land. My green house collapsed in the last big wind storm, well, It wouldn't have if he would have gotten it done like I said to instead of playing halo till it was to late to really start working,  trying to rush before a class, then stopping in the middle of the project to teach. The gym come first, i FULLY support that! If  he doesn't teach our students well, and they go on to a fight they are not prepared for, they get hurt. Thats a big responsibility we have, to help these guys (and gals, luv ya btw;) go after their dreams and not get to terribly hurt in the process!  I feel like his prioritys have been wonkie at best. i want him to just say "NO" to halo. 

ARGH! This coming from the susie home maker who not only supported her hubbys game nights with the guys, but MADE COOKIES AND TREATS for him to take with!  When they set up a game day (usually right after something cool is released) They ask what i am cooking, they know I dont let him go any where empty handed;)  Im so blessed to have a fast metabolism, i dont know what I would do if I had to be held accountable for all the goodies I eat...

NO WONDER he is confused!!!! i SPOILED him by catering to his video gamer love...

I guess I cant blame him for not taking my hurt feeling seriously. We did name our son Cloud...yep ff7~

It bothers me how distracted he gets when playing. He cant afford to be distracted from these years in our children lives.  He is the head of the household~

                                                              Ephesians 6:4 says

"Fathers, do not exasperate your children. instead bring them up in the training and instruction of the LORD."

The kids cant get everything they need from me. Im only one half of the whole. I may be the sillier half, but he is the stronger. I need him to be strong for me too. Over these last few months, I have hit a wall in so many ways. Spiritually, emotionally, physically.  I try to be happy, but all my frustrations boil over one way or another. i really need him to fully guide this family. The decisions he makes is an example to the kids. He doesnt see it, but the girls are looking to him to see how a husband and father should treat a wife and kids. Putting us on the back burner really hurts, and not just us, I see everything in long term generational views.  I dont want cycles to be repeated from either of our familys. I know he doesnt either.

This is where I rant a little... IN life there is no starting or finishing, just living. Meaning you can say you will start that new workout on Monday, but you may die on Sunday (when i was 6, my little friend died in a farming accident, I was a little weird after seeing her in the casket, death has always been in perspective for me sense then i guess...). Plans are very well and good, but missing out on moment to moment LIFE is throwing away the gift that is the preseant.  WORK now~play later! Play now~PAY LATER!  WE are NOT guaranteed tomorrow! even for something as noble as being a good father.  This world is not a play ground its a battle field! COME ON!!! WAKE up and make a change! This family is ur legacy! they inherit our habits and HOPE! LETS GIVE THEM JOY!!! TRUTH!!! PERSPECTIVE!!!!!!! ATTENTION!!!!!!!!!!!

He isnt the only one in need of a heart check. I shouldn't let myself get jealous and angry, then stew on it for a while. making my own poison;p  I have been reading in Ephesians and I gatta say, I really needed the wake up call;)

                                                                 one thing is for sure~

                                                  we need a REVIVAL in the house!!!!!
