"Surely we are not sufficiently sensible of the infinite tenderness of Jesus!" Spurgeon. Psalm 62: 8 Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. "When grief presses you to the dust, worship there, 'pour out your heart before Him. God is a refuge for us.' This sweetens sorrow and takes away it's sting." Spurgeon.
Okay, okay...I just can't help myself - firstly I love to write and secondly I have librarian parents to blame for my strong desire to have everything categorised and in order; you would not believe it at first glace at my house, but I do!
And so this urge to develop a family Nature Diary, Charlotte Mason style, is not to be stifled and is thus entitled to it's very own space. come along with us an dbe inspired to enjoy our wondeful Creator and His creation! http://acharlottemasonnaturediary.blogspot.com/
This leaving this blog to become more and more an observation of my thoughts, philosophy, religous views and my personal perspective on life and my observation of events around the world....it wasn't meant to be like that, I must get back to some family news soon. I haven't even told you yet have I? .....
Ah haaa .......... I tricked you; you all thought I was going to say I was "pregnant again!" Sorry, I couldn't help myself....people do keep on asking :-)
Civil Engineering student, 2011
What I was going to say I haven't told you yet, that Jonathan is at the Southbank Institute of Technology doing an Associate Degree in Civil Engineering to go on to the full degree at QUT later on. He is not my little school boy any more but rather another man in our home! Where do the years fly by to so fast? We are sooooo proud of him! He is doing so well. Jessica is doing really well as well as she continues with her child Care studies. Jarryn gets 'practised on' for any assignment work that needs toddler/preschooler practical input. He so enjoys Jessica and is most eager to see her again when she has been to the library as she always brings home a special book or two for him. What a delight it is to have young adults in our home who are mature and love God and their family. So that means we are now a family of 4 adults and only 6 children, or does it?
just joking... of course it does!
It is pure delight to see the little children grow up with extra adults to love them in the house!
Although things are not perfect
Because of trial or pain
Continue in thanksgiving
Do not begin to blame
Even when the times are hard
Fierce winds are bound to blow
God is forever able
Hold on to what you know
Imagine life without His love
Joy would cease to be
Keep thanking Him for all the things
Love imparts to thee
Move out of 'Camp Complaining'
No weapon that is known
On earth can yield the power
Praise can do alone
Quit looking at the future
Redeem the time at hand
Start every day with worship
To 'thank' is a command
Until we see Him coming
Victorious in the sky
We'll run the race with gratitude
X alting God most high
Y es, there'll be good times and yes some will be bad, but...
Z ion waits in glory...where none are ever sad!
'I AM Too blessed to be stressed!' The shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your knees and the floor.
The one who kneels to the Lord can stand up to anything.
