Thought Provoking Thursday: Pray for SC

let-us-pray-for-sc

Many of you may be aware of the saddening act that occured in Anderson, SC on Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2016.

I will not go into details of it in this blog post as you can find the details all over the news but will instead focus your attention to prayer and God’s faithful Word.

Please pray for the families who are affected in some capacity due to this unfortunate event.

                 Psalms 46:1 

                          “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

Monday’s Message:”I’m going to trick you.” “I ‘betcha’ I win.”

Today I remembered something that I use to do all the time with my oldest son to help motivate him to get his school work complete during his elementary years of homeschooling.

I’m not sure if you can identify with this. But I have a couple children who often like to play the “I don’t know game.”

This DRIVES me NUTS!

I tell these two children specifically that it isn’t cute to act as if they don’t know when I know they really do know the information in which I am inquiring from them.

My homeschooling time with my five year old started off just like this TODAY. Again.

Now…..he knows EVERY LETTER and EVERY SOUND of each letter since he was FOUR years old!

For whatever reason since I’ve pulled out *for real school books* he wants to act like he don’t know NOTHING!!

Ha!!!

Well…..this old homeschooling Mom. Not old in age!! But veteran in homeschooling…..I might clarify.

Showed him a thing or two. Ha!! All of sudden the GENIUS came of out this little ‘faker.’ And I had him spitting out answers left and right as if he was Einstein.

Me: “I’m going to trick you. Just watch. I bet you DON’T. EVEN. KNOW. THIS. NUMBER.”

Benjamin: I bet I do.

Me: Hhmmpph! I bet not. I’m going to trick you. Anddddd….. if you get it wrong I get a point.

( What? A Game!)

He was not about to allow me to win!!

And if he got it wrong…….I’d scream, “I won! I told you. I told you. I tricked you.”

OMGeeee!!! You’d think we were playing for money.

Well…..I eventually raised the stakes after I rememberd that I  HAD ONE piece of dark 70% CoaCoa chocolate in my purse.

I brought that out and that was it!!!

“Einstein” walked over to our kitchen table and had a seat.

I had him now!!! Hahaha <evil laugh>

We played this game through:  Letters and Sounds, Numbers, Cursive Writing, Readiness Skills for Reading, Phonics Chart.

I had so much fun!!!

Well…..I mean, “We” had so much fun.

What appeared to have been starting off as a challenging time of, “Come on Benjamin. You know the sound of “t.”

Turned in to him trying to quickly blurt out the answer before I even asked the question.

And he was right!!!

I won a few times as he was working on cursive.

I split the chocolate into four pieces. He won TWO squares. and I won TWO squares.. too.🙂

That little booger tried to tell me that I only won ONE square.

“Are you kidding kid?”

Next time you are about to school your littles….. try the,

“I betcha I can trick you.” or “I betcha I will win.” Game.

They will not know what came over school time.🙂

Tuesday’s Teach Them This: Success

The meaning of SUCCESS is following:
noun

  • 1. The achievement of something desired, planned, or attempted.attributed their success in business to hard work.
  • 2. The gaining of fame or prosperity.an artist spoiled by success.
  • 3. The extent of such gain.

However, followers of Christ may view SUCCESS differently.

For me personally success is OBEDIENCE  to the Lord no matter the positive or negative outcome that may come.

I’ve learned and indeed teach my children that SUCCESS doesn’t always come out ‘grand and beautiful.’

It often comes out of the satisfaction of knowing that you followed God’s plans, His will, His guidance and obeyed. The outcome of that LOOK OF SUCCESS is up to Him.

Additionally, SUCCESS IS  as God sees it to being something that is achieved that is of infinite, eternal value in this life and in the life to come. The Bible describes success in a much different way than the dictionary does.

So today I encourage you homeschool Mom to define success to your children.

Is success 100% on a paper or is it that they did their full best and earned a 86%?

Is success doing well on something that they understood well or conquering something or doing well in a concept that was super challenging even if they didn’t master it?

Keep in mind that…….

Success isn’t always pretty.

Success

Some levels of success will definitely take hard work.

Hard work is NOT a bad thing if it has eternal value and life changing effects.

Meditate of these Scriptures:

Walk in Success:
Psalm 1:1-3 “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.”

Joshua 1:8 “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”

Proverbs 3:1-4 “My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man.”

Proverbs 2:7 “He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless.”

Success

This I would claim for my success—not fame nor gold,

Nor the throng’s changing cheers from day to day,
Not always ease and fortune’s glad display,
Though all of these are pleasant joys to hold;
But I would like to have my story told
By smiling friends with whom I’ve shared the way,
Who, thinking of me, nod their heads and say:
‘His heart was warm when other hearts were cold.
‘None turned to him for aid and found it not,
His eyes were never blind to man’s distress,
Youth and old age he lived, nor once forgot
The anguish and the ache of loneliness;
His name was free from stain or shameful blot
And in his friendship men found happiness.’

by Edgar Albert Guest

Teach them this….if you so desire.
