parenting sucks

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

(Originally published by Nattie on April 10, 2007)
I am so not a good parent. I often wonder, “why did God give me these kids?” They deserve so much more.
Then I watched “Gideon Tuba Warrior,” which has a part where Gideon says that God chose him for such a time as this. And I think about Esther. Or Moses. Or all the sundry people that God chose to do great things. They weren’t all that fantastic. Moses stuttered. Esther was a Jew in a time when Jews were hunted and killed. God still chose them. They could do great things with God’s help.
That is when I realized that I’ve been trying to parent under my own power and that isn’t that fantastic right now. So Phil 4:13 for pete’s sake.
I definitely need it. Jonathan was suspended. Again.

Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am. ~ Phillipians 4:13, the Message

You Should Be a Poet

You have a way with words… and a talent for drawing the pure emotions out of experiences.
Your poetry has the potential to make people laugh and cry at the same time. You just need to write it!

this reminds me of something

Dana mentioned something about 21 days of no complaining and I googled it and came across this article which led to this website. It reminds me of something I read in Calm My Anxious Heart:A Woman’s Guide To Contentment by Linda Dillow

  • Never allow yourself to complain about anything—not even the weather.
  • Never picture yourself in any other circumstances or someplace else.
  • Never compare your lot with others.
  • Never allow yourself to wish this or that had been otherwise.
  • Never dwell on tomorrow—remember that [tomorrow] is God’s, not ours.

That was found in the diary of a missionary to Africa named Ella.
Yet again…I feel very, very, very…small.

Bridge to Terabithia

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

I finished my second book in the TBR challenge. Actually I finished it in one afternoon. It was Bridge to Terebithia by Katherine Paterson. I had a multitude of reasons for including this book in my challenge.

  1. 1. I had never read it and I don’t know why?!
  2. They now have a movie out and I cannot see a movie without reading the book.
  3. My son wanted to see the movie and I must then read the book and see the movie first because that is the type of parent I am.

It bears reapeating

This song bears repeating and humming…and singing at the top of your lungs while doing the glory dance….

Blessed Be Your Name
by Matt Redman

Blessed Be Your Name
In the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name

Blessed Be Your name
When I’m found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed Be Your name

Every blessing You pour out
I’ll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Blessed be Your name
When the sun’s shining down on me
When the world’s ‘all as it should be’
Blessed be Your name

Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there’s pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

Every blessing You pour out
I’ll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name

pondering

Monday, September 21st, 2009

(Originally published by Nattie on February 26, 2007)
I’ve been pondering on why we as humans are never happy where we are. A few weeks ago, I wanted a real winter with snow and all that jazz. I’ve had it now and I’m over it. Now I want spring. Why can’t I live in the moment? And I know I’m not the only one who does this. Why can’t we be happy in the here and now?! Life is too fleeting to be wishing away today in search of tomorrow.
So I’m going to try to take a page from Paul’s book…

I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I’ve found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am.—Phillipians 4:11-13

times that try (wo)men’s souls

Friday, September 18th, 2009

(Originally published by Nattie on February 23, 2007)
I am thankful that I am not God. I couldn’t handle the pressure. But there are times when I wonder what He is thinking. I know in His infinite wisdom He does know what he is doing, but still…there are times that try the soul.
Times when you wonder why do mommies lose three-month-old babies? Why do other mommies not even get to birth their babies? Why do I have a son with special needs? Why does a husband think that another woman can meet his needs when he can’t even look outside of a beer can? And the list goes on…but God is God and I am not. So I cling to one of His many promises…

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18

Amen
