Why That Picture?

Okay as many of you know that know me personally knows that I have a few pet peeves.  I mean I have some serious one too. But in all the ones that I have there are some that are really serious ones that I shouldn't even ever need to bring about to a conversation. It's common sense people. 


Okay so I am not perfect. I probably have posted a picture of someone that they didn't want posted on social media. I am sure we are all guilty of that. But this is not what my issue is.  My issue revolves around our children's pictures on social media. I often have to ask WHY???

So maybe your not following me.

Nudity pictures or half nude pictures of our children.  Cute little baby pictures that are innocent to us. You know the ones i'm talking about. The ones with just their bums showing. Or the ones in the bath tubs with a cloth covering them in the private areas.  Or how about that picture of your daughter in a bikini at the beach? Not yet a teen, or pr…

Canning Season has arrived!

Don't know about your family , but in my family we can up food to help sustain us through out the winter. With prices of food and with the way things are going in our world, it's not a bad thing to know how to do. So if you don't know how to, it would be a good thing to learn. 

Just this year so far we have canned 

green beans,

spaghetti sauce,
apple butter,
and vegetable soup.   '

It may take a lot of work growing the garden, and buying the supplies, and putting it all together. But it is worth it in the end. They'll be no hungry bellies when winter hits.  With the sauce alone there is so many dishes you can make. Same goes for the beans. They go well with lots of things.  I am thankful for the people that took time to teach me how to can my food.  God always supplies our needs no matter what. This is one blessing that I am glad he supplied.

The Surprise Birthday Party

Family is important to me. Family means everything to me, and I want it in my children's lives.  There is no better feeling than knowing that you have a family that is always there for you.  
This past weekend my mother in law had a birthday. She turned 73 years young.  the only thing she asked for was to have her kids around her and to have a fish dinner.  Well her daughter went one step farther than that. She planned a surprise birthday party for her mom. She invited the siblings and their children to come.  With this hurricane that was in FL we have a niece that lives there. She came up and was to be a surprise for her Nanny since we don't get to see her much. 
My husband and I picked up one of his younger brothers and his mom to. We were to bring her to the party without Nanny knowing what we was doing. She still thought we was going out to eat at a restaurant.  My husband and I took his mom shopping for a new outfit for her birthday. She loves having something new to wear t…

School has Officially STARTED!!!

Well it's that time of year again. SCHOOL TIME!!!  As most know we homeschool in our family. It's just what works and fits for us. I love so doing it and watching my son grow in knowledge. It is amazing what you see when you are one on one with a child in learning.  

This year I am using a eclectic source of books to teach from. I didn't stick to one company alone this time around. When my daughter was homeschooled I tried top stay with Bob Jones curriculum. Most of the time it worked out but I remember a few years that we went with whatever came my way. So with our son, I just chose the things that made since to me. Here is a picture of our school basket. This is where you will find all of his school material as far as books go. 

 As you can see there is a few different publisher here.  This year I have First Language Lessons, Horizons Math, and Abeka for Science and History. We have never tried Horizons for Math before.  So far he likes it.  Teaching second grade is new fo…

Howdy YA'LL!!! It's been a while

Howdy. I'm back for the moment. HA!!  Its been a long and hard summer. Been super busy and had lots going on in the family. 

So to begin with, I have finally found a Doctor that is wanting to help me get better and not just put a band-aid on the problem. I have been struggling now for almost a year with some health issues. Finally I have a few answers and getting better. I also have a very great friend that is being supportive for me though all my sickness. So glad that I have her.
Lots of prayer from family and friends, anointing healing from God above and someone willing to listen.

Also this summer has been a sad one.  I lost a cousin in my family and my husband lost a dear friend in his. It always seems as though deaths always come around time to start canning for the winter.  At least it does for me.

My husband is still preaching and going where ever the Lord leads him to go. He has now preached twice on the radio for our churches broadcast.  We pray that it touches someone and th…
