Joy To The World

        Tis the season to be jolly...right? Well, then why is my heart in such agony? Tomorrow is the big day....Christmas and as I watch the news I see stories about people shopping even though the economy is in MAJOR distress. It's not the actual shopping that hurts, it's the amount of money people spend to force feed their materialistic needs (and their immediate family's materialistic needs) while there are people in need of actual NEEDS!! These are people like you and me. They have children and grandparents and husbands....but nothing else, and they watch us. They watch us as we allow one day, one season, one moment in time pass by, where we believe greed is indeed what Jesus would have us to focus on. They watch us walk pass them as they sit cold on the streets and give them a dollar, say God bless you and then walk away feeling like we did something great. In reality, we have not attended to their needs as our heavenly Father would have us to do.
      Around this time of the year, there is something in the air, something sweet & lovely almost embraceable, it's the feeling of giving without thought. We just want to give! But, why is it that we get overwhelmed with this feeling only once per year?.....aren't we children of a great & mighty God whom has indeed taught us better? Yes, we are and since we know better we should do better, how you say? Well let me say this first before I forget it (lol).....  This is an awesome feeling by the way... I mean seriously, we love every-friggin-body during the holiday season....Only we don't show them true love, the love of Jesus. The love of Jesus is not giving gifts, it's not cooking meals all night to feed your family (nothing wrong with that, just sayin') , it's not lying to your kids into thinking "santa" is coming (he's an idol by the way)...yeah, yeah, yeah...I know, it's for the kids right? Well, what did Jesus tell us to teach our children? We are to lay a foundation in the way they should go, teach them his commandments and be a living vessel for Him. The point I'm trying to get at is, that WE (that includes me and my family too) as followers of Christ and believers of His Word should always have this great giving feeling....ALWAYS. When we don't, we do Jesus ministry a disservice because we are seen as only hearers and NOT doers of the word.
       On Sunday, I sang "Joy To The World" because I know that the day Jesus was born was a joyous occasion, even though there is no actual historical birth date, but it was even better when he cleansed me from my sins. That was the greatest give of all, try giving that this holiday season...Give Jesus.

Wishing you all a dose of Jesus this season, May you increase in your patience, kindness, prayer and knowledge. May our Heavenly Father place on your hearts to share what you have and give needs out of your lack. May the Lord allow you to lead someone to Him and offer them eternal life...the greatest gift of all, one that will never rot or rust, nor thief can steal or devil destroy. Give Love, Give Jesus ~Amen~

Homeschooling Is Abuse?

  This post is one of my favorite! Chime in on this "oldie but goodie" and share, share, share!

 There comes a time in a bloggers life when she reads something that she doesn't agree with and she MUST blog about it! Well folks, that blogger would be me :) 
    Today I read something that just made my skin crawl! This person (another blogger) called homeschooling ABUSIVE! WHAT???? Are you kidding me? I know this is America the beautiful and you have a right to say what you want, but before you have an opinion GET THE FACTS STRAIGHT (I was not yelling, just had my eyes wide open)!
   This blogger wrote that homeschool prevents girls from having role models and knowing that they can become anything a man can become! Obviously, this person has been watching some cultism action, because that is NOT what homeschool is about! This person also said that the parents have control issues because the parents control every aspect of their child's life and education! Does this person sound rational to you?
   Ok, allow me make a valid point (because I have the facts). Anything can be and has been used for a bad purpose. Fire is good for cooking and other useful purposes, but some people use it to burn folks houses down! Sooooo, does that make fire bad? There are many controlled substances that people take because they are sick or are in great pain, but some abuse them. Does this make the controlled substances bad?....I think you get my point, but one more example, I promise. Sex was made to be between a man and a woman, but in today's society we have lesbianism/homosexuality. Does this very fact make sex wrong? The answer to all these questions is NO! People are going to do what they want with things because they have free will. Now, when we have children, we are really excited,we fall in love with them, we take care of them. Then we depend on America to raise them, tisk-tisk.
      We speak badly about parents that leave their children at home alone or are allowed  to disrespect their parents, so why is it so wrong for people to actually raise their children if they choose to do so? The Bible tells us to raise up our children in the way they "should" go. No where did it say, send them to public school and let someone else that has NO Godly values raise your kids and teach them worldly things! If you hate homeschoolers so much, that might have been me that just stepped on your toes, sorry.
     Of course the whole "Socialism" issue was brought up, like my kids are caged animals or something and they don't know what their fellow humans look and sound like. Really? The way the world is today, I don't even want to socialize in the public schools! But, don't get me wrong, I'm not ragging on public school, some of them are great and it works for some families (it all goes back to my examples), but for me and my house, we will homeschool!
     Oh, then the blogger goes to talk badly about HSLDA not even realizing that a lot of the issues that HSLDA fights is for ALL parents/children alike, they fight for parents rights!! We have a right to raise our children the way we choose. Do some people go overboard? YES, but that's with all things! You can't hate homeschool because some abuse it! It's not fair to those of us who work darn hard for our children to have the best education EVER in our homeschool! You need to rag on reckless parents that don't take care of their children, that don't care about their education, that only spends 15 minutes per day of quality time with them, that can care less about their relationship with Christ, that don't even know where their children are RIGHT NOW!!!......(drops mic)
