Hungry Flesh

As I was driving to work the other day a nasty snapshot came to my mind. It was so vivid and clear that I instinctively shook my head as if it would disappear and go away. The picture came from a movie I had seen so many, many years ago. “How can this be!” I thought. Here I was praying and praising the Lord and this ugly image came to mind and destroyed my sweet worship. I was disgusted and ashamed at my self for watching something inappropriate that would later come back to haunt me. I prayed and asked God to take this thought away but for some reason I still felt dirty. About a week later I was reading the news and there was a story about a young singer who made a video and it was very controversial. The news media was sharing how inappropriate it was for young...

“Once Again”

As summer comes to an end and school begins my heart is not saddened. For me this is very surprising or better yet so out of character. Every year I cringe thinking about homeschooling and the responsibilities it brings to Domingo and I. Teaching my children at home is one of the hardest tasks God has given me. This summer I spent my extra time on prayer and drawing close to my heavenly Father It was on my knees in a dark closet that God showed me I was carrying a very heavy load that belonged to him. Because my load was so heavy I allowed my enemies fear, self, pride, and stupidity to come along side and help me. So needless to say “once again” I was bamboozled by the enemy and many times lost my way. It was then God taught me” once  again” he will carry my...

Boy or Girl?

As I have said before raising daughters I believe is such a difficult task. When girls get mad and fight they have the ability to annihilate one another with their tongues. Boys on the other hand get mad and they just punch each other or end up on the floor wrestling . Girls can keep a long account of wrongdoing boys just want their toy back so they can go outside to play. Our Creator created men and woman so “wonderfully different.” Today we live in time when gender no longer seems to matter. Its is “Vogue” today to raise a child gender free. I hear young mothers talking about not giving “boy toys to boys” and ”girl toys to girls.”  I don’t care what anybody says “Girls “are created so different then “Boys.” Do you ever see a man break down once a...

Two Dummies and a Bible

  Today as I went into my closet to spend some “Alone Time” time with my Father in heaven I was reminded of the greatness and elegance of our Creator. He sits on his throne always waiting to hear from us his beloved children. As a mother of many nothing is more pleasing to me when my older kids come in my room ready to share their joy and pain of their day. Why do we think we have all the answers to life and forget to go to the one who gave us life. What picture does our Father see as he looks down on us. Who and what can compare to the knowledge of God. We go and seek answers from many but why don’t we seek him first. There are times when I am in a conversation and everyone gives all these humanistic solutions. Then someone will look at me and ask me what I...
