I know, I know, I’m never here anymore. That might be about to change and it might not. And here’s why:
We’re using the ever popular, brand new, free for all comers,
And we love it! Without reservation! It’s for me, and I hope it always will be!
I’m using it for Caleb and Rachel who are both about to have their birthdays and will be, respectively (*more on that later), 13 (seriously?), and 10 (going on 30).
Why, Lord, why did you let my baby grow up so quickly?
Jacob will start using Easy Peasy soon. He’s been busy with other pursuits.
Today we’re on Day 7. This is the first time in YEARS that we’ve followed a plan that I didn’t construct and let me tell you, I LOVE THE FREEDOM! Sorry to shout like that, but y’all, this is so cool. I don’t have to do anything except utter the following words, “Kid, go do school.” And the kid goes to the computer and commences to learn important things.
If you don’t call your child “Kid” then your mileage may vary, and you probably don’t listen to Alice’s Restaurant by Arlo Guthrie often enough. I’m listening to it right now, while blogging, with my headphones on, while the kid is in the next room, on the computer, learning important things. (Hmmm, listening to Alice’s Restaurant, and admiring it so much, like I do, is making me wonder right now, if maybe this could explain my appreciation of r.u.n. o.n. s.e.n.t.e.n.c.e.s.?)
The other kid is in the kitchen emptying the dishwasher. The rest of the kids are at work with their dad (what a guy!)
So, what was I saying?
Respect, that’s what I was getting to. Remember the * earlier. Respectively, being a form of the word RESPECT. This is the whole reason I sat down to talk to y’all here today.
This morning I was reading all of the 4 blogs included in the whole 4 Blogs, 35 Kids conglomeration of blogs, and I came across this previous post on Smockity Frocks. And it spoke to me. It spoke to me loud and clear. Actually, to be precise, the scripture she noted spoke to my heart, revealing my sin that I have been trying to pawn off on my children, who, make no mistake, are heinous sinners, just like me, but, I know that I’m not the example I COULD BE, and therefore… well, y’all probably already know what God has to say about leading children down the path of destruction.
Convicted. I am.
So, here we go. Ephesians 4:29. I went straight to my computer to print it out and decided to add an image of a cactus as a visual reminder for me, of my natural ways. I’ll post the first one on my bathroom mirror, and the rest will be placed in likely spots, like the fridge and maybe all the other bathroom mirrors.
Anyway, go read what Connie has to say, and leave her a comment. Join in if ya wanna. I know I surely do need it!
