Homeschool VS. Public School!!


Homeschool Vs. Public School

Usually when VS.
appears between two subjects
there is a fight
or debate underway!

I must sound like an actual living, breathing oxymoron. One day I write about the public schools and the virtue of teaching. The next day I write about the virtues of homeschooling. Someone is going to be mad at me for something.  Oh well…..I speak from the heart!

Contrary to popular belief, they both hold the same desire for positive outcomes. Continue reading

Simple Animation

My eldest son is a graphic designer.  When he was a little guy he was quite an animator and cartoonist.  Art has always been in his blood!

He created character after character.  He has several sketch books full of cartoons he created…it amazes me actually.  There was always one problem.  Even though his imagination was always moving at break neck speed, his characters remained still on the paper.  He never saw movement. It frustrated him time and time again. Continue reading

Simple Fire


Simple Fire

Have you ever watched a campfire? It is mesmerizing….the fire just consumes everything in it’s path.

Have you ever struck a match to the thin strip of paper? You have not time to back away! The fire consumes the paper in less than a second! The paper simply is no more.

Consume: “Use up in the process of living; destroy …as by fire.” These are the definitions that Websters gives us. 

Hebrews 12:28-29 says: “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our ‘God is a consuming fire.’” This means to consume wholly or thoroughly.

God wants to consume us. His desire for us is that we know and feel His love. God wants His love to invade every part of our being. He wants a complete union with us.

I Corinthians 6:17 “But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.” God has a love that subdues every part of our being.

How is this achieved? There is not a plan, there is only a person. JESUS CHRIST. We just have to surrender. I say that over and over and over. We can spend time in prayer. We can meditate on Him, His love and His word. We need to get away in solitude. God will not shout over the clamor in our lives. But He does want to consume us. He wants that intimate relationship.

Find a place mom. Praise Him, think on Him and just listen. If you are like me, talking is one of my best traits, so listening to Him…waiting on Him took some practice! Basking in His presence is the most wonderful, intimate time I know…and want. He wants it to.

I always thought I wanted to be thin! So a strip of paper I am…waiting to be consumed!!

Be blessed~
