Today, I taught my Kids’ church why we celebrate Independence Day. They had no idea. These kids were kindergarten through 5th grade and not one of them knew except my kids. And are they smarter than the other kids? Probably not, but they were taught by their parents. And here is my plea. Teach your children. You as a parent or future parent are 100% responsible for your children’s education. If they are idiots, it is because of your neglect or laziness. A good parent is a responsible parent. Period. A good parent is a responsible parent. Teach your kids. Teach them about God, history, math, life, right and wrong. Teach them. And if you are lazy enough to blame their teachers/schools, be responsible enough to demand they are taught the right things and not just any social garbage the morons in charge come up with that has nothing to do with a real education. I am calling out parents. You are responsible. Stop blaming and put the tech down and man and woman up. You have kids to raise and you are responsible for their education and knowledge of Jesus for salvation. You are. No one else. There are books to read if you never learned how, that is no excuse. Do it. Be proactive. Deactivate your worthless anti-social media accounts and be the parents and thus people God made you to be. It is on you. God will help also when you ask. Always. ❤
So, today was family chores day. I mowed, Zach vacuumed, Kathleen dusted and cleaned the glass and we all cleaned our rooms. We do chores so my kids do not grow up to be entitled spoiled brats. In fact, they do not get any privileges until they do their chores. Not one. No allowance, no tv, no video games. I do feed them but if they neglect their chores after breakfast, they have to wait for lunch until they are finished. This strategy works for us and my kids help me as soon as I ask them to. I believe it is our duty to lead our kids to be responsible adults and good stewards of what God gave us. Now for showers… lol. ❤
There is apparently a movement to minimize Father’s Day by “feminists” and I object. You see, what these hurt little misguided girls don’t realize is that we cannot have healthy babies without our husbands. In fact, our husbands are security in a world where other idiotic, selfish men can’t control their hormones or urges. Our husbands and thus babies’ fathers also work to pay our bills and provide for us so we can be weak when we are weak and strongly support everyone when we are strong. Fathers are invaluable to our children, adoring and protecting our daughters and teaching our sons how to be fathers. They are invaluable. And even when they do it badly in our eyes, they are there and thus are a rock for the family to cling to. And yes, some father’s completely blow it and take off and they devastate but those who stay are worth their weight in gold. My daddy (rest in heaven peacefully, daddy) was my rock and support with unconditional love for me all my life, and my husband is that for me and my children now. So feminists, shut your ignorant, divisive wounded mouths and I say proudly and loudly, “Happy Father’s Day!” Thank you, fathers, for all you do! You have my respect and appreciation.❤
Usually family fun days do not include my husband, who is notoriously anti-social except for music and thr security team on Sundays. He never wants to do anything, so usually family fun day is the three of us doing something free or cheap, like a park day, swimming and pool at mom’s club house, hiking Carter Lake, walking to Circle K for a soda pop, or something. But tomorrow we are all going to Busch Gardens! We got the fun pass for the rest of the year (thanks to my consulting job) and tomorrow is our first time using it. So excited! We rarely splurge on anything not music related but this will be great. Steve probably won’t go often but even one time is good the the kids’ memories. So excited for this family fun day outing. Thank you, God, for the patients you sent my way!😄❤
The closer I get to the Lord, the more I see lies clearly and detest them. My daughter has been testing me in this and I have been calling her out and she is learning that lies will get her punished more than anything else she does wrong. My son learned this arpund her age also, so he gets it. “Mom hates lying so you better tell her the truth or you’ll get in so much trouble” I heard him whisper to warn her when he thought I was out of the room. This is great. There is a reason. Satan and his demons are the “father’s of lies”. They promise what they cannot provide (like power and security and wealth and pleasure, etc.) and lie like they breathe. They lie incessantly and only want to kill and destroy and torture everyone. So lies are not ok. God is truth so we must seek it, love it, live it to please Him. And I want to please God and not honor His enemy who wants us dead. Can I get a witness? Sometimes it seems like noone tells the truth but I know some do, at least selectively, and I do and my kids will it I have anything to say about it. My husband is an adult and has to make that decision for himself but truth is my goal for our family and I pray accordingly. It also makes you much easier see through lies around you. Truth is good. Keep shooting down the lies and focus on truth and build that up. Truth is oxygen and light for truth is God. ❤
The greatest gift we can give our children is Jesus because He is the way to eternal life in heaven. Those who teach their children about Jesus or take them to Sunday School to learn will be rewarded now or later and those who do not will be held accountable. Please remember that in all love and gentleness. It is on you. Your kids can’t get there without you. It is important. ❤
I decide to go walk with my daughter.
I decide not to helicopter my spouse.
I decided his choices are his.
I decided to stay close to God.
I decided to walk with my daughter rather than police my spousal rights.
I decided to pray and let God work.
I decided policing him has been policing me.
I decided to be free.
I decided God avenge all wrongs against me.
I decided not to myself.
I decided to go walk with my daughter.
I decided right for her is my greater right.
It is beautiful.
It is peace and joy from God.
I am free.
Free is beautiful.❤
