Super Mommy

Recently, I've gotten hooked on to the TV reality show Supernanny.

It's amazing what kids can do if you let them get away with it.

I mean, half the stuff I see these kids do, I woulda got a spanking for!

However, it has given me a new respect for mothers as a whole. It is more and more clear to me that this job is not for sissies!!!

They are the ones who hold us when we have nightmares, who feed us, clothe us, and make sure we're understanding what we're learning in school.

I remember Mama helping me with my math while I was crying, frustrated, and I repeated over and over that I could never do it! In the end, Mama was frustrated as well.
Mothers do so much, and it just makes me sad to realize that many of the kids I see in this show including myself have never really appreciated Mom for doing all of this!

I resolve to help my mother more while I am at the house and to always let her know that she is loved and appreciated!

One more concern of mine was taken care of just recently:
I went up to Mama. "Mama," I said. "Did I ever cuss at you, kick you, hit you, spit on you? If I did, I'm sooooo sorry!"
Mama just looked at me and grinned. "If you ever did any of those things," she said. "You only did it once."

Phew! ;)

On the road at all?

Remember how I said I had been struggling lately with fleshy things? Seems like I knock one down and another one pops up!

Hm. I'm either gonna be fighting or running away before Jesus comes in!

This one has been envy. It has bothered me without end that I am the only one amongst my friends who doesn't have a car (or the skill to drive one) and I can't just come and go as I please.

So again, I strive to be thankful in all circumstances as the Bible tells me to.

This one's gonna be a toughie...

Hand on the Plow...and Not Looking Back!

Well it's been two weeks since I came home from my first year of college :)
And lovin' it!

However, I have been dealing with some fleshy things. Flesh tells me, "stay home and go to college in state."

Not that I don't like North Central--I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! The people there are wonderful! Wish I could hug each and every one of them right now! But at North Central I'm on my own. I'm not the kid who was out the door the minute I turned 18--God had to tell me! And I'm not sure why but several times during last semester I felt very homesick.

Coming to NCU has gotten me out of my comfort zone for sure. But my flesh hates it. Why? Because home is easier. Home is familiar. Home is comfortable.
So yes that has been a major struggle of mine.

But I already have my mind made up--when the time comes to go back to NCU I'm going no matter how I feel. Why?

"No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."

Luke 9:62

Selah :) Thank You Jesus, for enabling me to do that which You have called me to.

Dead Sea Scrolls...Words that Changed the World

Yesterday, I went with couple of friends to the Science Museum of St. Paul. The Dead Sea Scrolls had been brought to this particular museum and our Bible classes had promised us a free quiz or some form of extra Credit for going! And it was a blast!
They had one from Isaiah 54:11-55:2, one from Genesis the story of creation, and one from the Psalms! There were others but the one from Isaiah fascinated me most of all! Probably the best passage to lead someone to the Lord with! :)
The Dead Sea Scrolls are going to be in the museum until October 24th 2010. Good summer educational trip for your elementary, junior high, or high school kids! There were more than just the scrolls in the exhibit! There were artifacts from that day like the bowls, flasks, and much more! I highly encourage you to go! It's 28 dollars a person if you're an adult though :/
Here are some pictures from our adventure! These are from the other exhibits as they would not allow us to take pictures of the scrolls themselves :( sad day!
Here is the website if you wanna get tickets!
Seriously, just do it! :)

we had to wear wristbands :)
