I couldn’t resist this post. Five-year-olds memorized facts in seven subject areas along with 1) the names of all the U.S. presidents 2) 24 verses of a chapter in the book of Ephesians and 3) enjoyed hands-on explorations in science, art, and music. Middle and high schoolers also wrote papers, redrew the map of the world from memory, analyzed text, and debated. These activities kept the kids in our local homeschool community busy since the fall. I had to give you a glimpse of what some of this work looked like. My first grader loved every minute with our weekly small group. I have played the audios of songs and recitations almost everyday the last eight months to drive them in nice and deep, and never has he tired of them.

Seven Signs You’re a V.I.P. Blogger

Originally posted on A Holistic Journey:

1. You laugh and cry with people you’ve never met. And if anyone tells you they’re not real friends, you know which friend is on his way out.

2. You feel like a superhero. Not because you’re out at night saving the world but because you have this whole other identity, a life some friends have no idea you live.

3. You burn your third pot in a month, preoccupied with the new post bubbling in your head. No one can be too upset when you’re…inSpiRed.

4. You have not only given up on the dishes but quit stressing that they’re in full display for guests. No time, no pride, no shame.

5. “Sorry? I don’t follow” or “You follow?” isn’t something you can say in cyberspace anymore.

6. Your vibes with bloggers are in sync. Just when you’re thinking of a reader, a like from the dear soul comes…

I see your eyes still

I see your eyes still, even though parted we have been. They look back at me while bouncing against ice cubes, caught in the turbulence of the alcohol of my choice. Choices, they line before me like pawns. Only these pawns do not look so small while standing on the chessboard of life. Who the hell upgraded them to badass knights? Is that the Queen standing yonder? What symbol adorns that banner there, I know it not. But her eyes I do know. They are the eyes of my mother.

Sharing My Notes <3

Here is a picture of Pastor Jeremy of Tioga Assembly of God, North Dakota. No, he’s not resting on the job. He’s not putting up caution tape everywhere, telling people to stay out of his space, while he watches t.v. on the big screen in his lazy boy recliner.

Did you know the Crazy Horse Statue is to be completed in A.D. 2050, a project started in 1948. That will be over 100 years!

Noah had faith and built an ark with no means of testing it. He was just obedient to build it..

Did you do here on earth what you were supposed to do for God to do not only in words, but actions?

Your life is a wisp….what are you going to do with the time that you have left?

Abraham was persuaded that God would do all that He said He could do. Are we living that?

Psalm 34:8 “Oh taste and see that the Lord is good!”

An impala will not jump where it cannot see where it will land.

Fear of failure is in the news…then we won’t try anything?

He spoke about how “everything’s GREAT, though someone’s in the hospital”, or “everything’s AWESOME, though we fight with our spouse or family on the way”. Our own comfort becomes our own obstacle….to let someone in our lives would be uncomfortable. We don’t open up with Jesus even because He moves us out of our comfort zone.

We stop the action because of the emotion of crying because our makeup will smear, or peer pressure.
The pain of comfort is greater than the pain of change. The pain of change has to become greater than the pain of comfort.

It is work to go to prayer.

We even choose the same seats at church because we are familiar with them.

He’s talked about the time right when we’re getting ready to fall asleep that we get all snuggly and guarded and comfortable. The devil uses everything to get us more comfortable.

In Exodus 16:3 the Israelites complained after all the miracles. Comfortable people will see the miracle, but risk-takers will seek the Miracle giver.

The man who was carried in on a mat may have been embarrassed… but he had friends. The man after working past his embarrassment was able to pick up his mat and walk home.

God has made us an overcomer, a head and not the tail, above and not below. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8VoUYtx0kw

“There’s no comfort in the cross.”

The Israelites didn’t want any comfort. It seemed they only wanted death as their focus was on the miracles and not the Miracle Giver. We never push through the trial. What if He does something INCREDIBLE for us…even if it meant being a slave, the Israelites wanted food in their tummies. Sometimes God will strip us of our comforts to bring us to where He is.

Living in a state of comfortableness will put you in a state of slavery. God has rescued you from sin and from coming wrath. Why do you want to stay comfortable? What is your comfort?

We don’t like change.

Luke 9:57-62

Our decisions will be determined by one concern: comfort.

Hello! My name is Kim :)

My world seems to be spinning out of control

as a Rainbow is wrapped around my wrist.

Comfort slowly steps away from me;

But really those are my footprints!

I hear Constant Drum and A Steady Wind –

Oh, the view from these Windows!!

Where’s the door? Let me out!!

I want to run and explore these lands <3

Whisper…

I hear a whisper in the wind. Meanings twirled within reason resulting in conclusive thoughts. But what has been resolved? There are debates and there are arguments, but both can be done in the same voice. That person speaks to me now. He is myself.

WoW… what in the hell was that? I really need to lay off the drugs. I am going to bed. I am pressing publish because I don’t delete… ever. Except for that one time.

Jesus, I thank You for everything You have done, that nothing we can do or have done will ever change the limitless love that You have for us <3

Tonight I was given an invaluable gift I want to share with you <3

Yellow – all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God. Romans 3:23

Black – the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

Red – God provides His own love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

White – For by grace you are saved, through faith and it is not from yourselves; it is a gift from God-not from works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Green – If you confess with your mouth "Jesus is Lord", and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. With the heart one believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in salvation . Romans 10:9-10

If you've never had a personal relationship with Jesus, I invite you to pray with me now .

Remember we have all fallen …and it is the wages , something we earn is death…. But Jesus brings us the gift of Salvation, LIFE <3

All we do is say " Jesus I have sinned , I have done wrong. Apart from You , I deserve death. I thank You for paying my debt. I repent , I need You to come into my life and fill me anew each day . You alone are Lord Jesus <3 Amen <3"
