Homeschool bumbles

I wish i could take pics of what we're doing in homeschooling, but right now I am in DIRE need of organization! lol. It's lots of fun though. My daughter is doing 1st Grade My Father's World and it is really great. But of course I'm trying to add onto it things that I think they would also enjoy. For example i downloaded an autumn lapbook and we are going to add pictures of them and pressed leaves and everything to it and i hope to keep it for memories for years to come. My family thinks I'm insane for homeschooling, my dad keeps getting whispers from his girlfriend who is a public school teacher, enough said. lol. But I'm content knowing that I'm doing what God has ordained is the best for our children. :)

Thanks for your prayers!

I was up all night but when i woke up the swelling was going down. I went to the doctor this morning, and got some antibiotics, and was told to take them and my allergy medicine (which i always forget to take) and to put hydrocortizone on my arm as well. So it was a combination of my scratching causing an infection (you can say i told you so Mary!) and my body's allergic reaction to the bites that caused me all the trouble. It's still slightly swollen and warm but I have no more shooting pain. But I'm still itchy a bit. The doctor says if i scratch it will swell up bad again and start the problem all over. So I'm still trusting on the Lord for a full recovery and praying that I never get into a situation like this again! (God FORBID I ever get the real itchies like from poision ivy-which i've never encountered!!! I'll probably scratch myself into a coma!)
Oh, YaChnna, I'm going to look for that plant. When you said Plantain, the first thing i thought about was the fruit! I said to myself, wait, she wants me to put food on my arm??? LOL.
It's funny that two different things have the same name.

Pray for my healing

I have a couple of bites from I guess a mosquito that have been bothering me for over a week, and i've been scratching but now my arm is almost COMPLETELY swollen, red and hot and i am having sharp pains up and down my arm. Working today was excruciating! Even typing now is killing me! Please pray for my arm, I hope it's not infected.

A Baby Stroller fell in tracks, hit by train- Baby survives with only a scratch. Don't tell me miracles don't happen!

The Lord is so good!!!!! I firmly believe that the Lord cupped His hands around that baby carriage to protect the baby. I can not believe that the baby survived with only a scratch on the forehead!!!! No, i CAN believe it. Because our God is just that good!!

The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD. Psalm 118:16-17

Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation. Psalm 91:14-16

Tell me how to teach my children not to want

How do i teach my children that toys and "stuff" aren't everything? It's months away from Christmas and my children are already telling me loads and loads of things they want. I keep telling them that there are children out there with no gifts at all and they should be grateful for whatever they get, but i don't think they are getting the message. What can i do?

Award!

Angela gave me an award!!! That was so nice of her! It's the honest scrap award!

Photobucket

Here are the rules:
1) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.
2) Tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving the award.
3) Share "10 Honest Things" about myself.

Here are the 10 things about me:

1) I colored my hair when I was younger with a product called "Sun-In" and it accidentally made my hair blond, brown, auburn, and a little white when i used too much.

2) I was vegan for a whole year till my dad made some bacon and I haven't been vegan since!

3) I get depressed because it is hard to find like minded people in New York.

4) I went to an all girls Catholic High School.

5) I've been through such a transformation in the Lord that the girls from High School would NOT recognize me.

6) Years ago when i was a SAHM, I once called my husband to come home from work to kill a centipede. He refused. I hit it with his big church shoes. It did not survive.

7) I cried when i made my first whole chicken because as i was cleaning it, it reminded me of my pet dove.

8) I own two pink Bibles, all my Bible tabs are pink, and i have a pink Bible journal.

9) I used to hate pink growing up!

10) I have more friends on my blog than i do in real life! (But you are all such wonderful women!)

I give this award to:

EVERYONE!!!!! I don't want to limit who i give the award to and i don't want to force anyone to use it especially if someone does not want to be too honest about themselves. I wouldn't want them to be obligated to me to post. :)

So whoever wants to do it, go ahead! Let me know in the comments if you do so i can see!

Why do these things always happen to me?

I was talking to a lady at work who i have never met before. She mentioned she was Christian, and we started talking about God's Blessings. All of a sudden she GRABBED my head and put the sign of the cross on my forehead with her thumb!!!!!
WHAT!?!?! I was stunned so i just smiled and said goodbye.
Why do these things only happen to me?

So many things in homeschooling, it's amazing!
