Please pray for me.
It's really hard for me to be patient with a certain someone.
It's really hard to keep going when you've tried so much already...

It's about time...


I thought it was about time I posted something about me personally. Something real.

And I love this color, so here we go...

I'm not really sure how to feel about quitting my job. I am happy about it, but I've had a job for so long (which technically isn't that long--it just seems like it). It's kind of weird.  But leaving that behind, I'm really excited about the upcoming school year. Which means plans, organization, schedules, and goals.  I thrive on these things. It's me. 
I'll be teaching Andrew Geometry and helping him to finish up on his Algebra II. I'll also be helping quite a bit with his English Lit. Oh, and piano lessons with Cathryn will start soon as well. =)

Enough about me. I get too boring. lol

Verses that have stuck in my mind today:

"Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?"
~Job 38:36

"Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place. Hide them in the dust together; and bind their faces in secret. Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can save thee"
~Job 40:12-14.

"There was a time when..."

"Heirlooms we don't have in our family. But stories we've got."
~Rose Chernin
I do believe, after the Lord's word, memories and stories are the most precious things we can share and pass on to our younger siblings (and children, grandchildren, etc.). What children seem to remember the most about visits with grandparents is the innumerable stories of "the olden days" that they will never know through their own experiences. Well, that's what I remember the most anyway. 
This post kind of goes with the previous one in that we should always be able to make time for stories--the kind of stories that actually happened. This is how our era lives on after we've left this earth. Individual life history is just as important as world history. Everyone impacts the lives around them. Everyone changes the world. Everyone has a story to tell...
What will your story be?

The origin of celebrating birthdays.

Wikipedia also says:

The World Encyclopedia considered anyone who celebrated the birth of anyone else to be following a pagan custom. The ancient Greeks, for instance, believed that each person had a protective spirit that attended the person's birth and thereafter watched over him. That spirit "had a mystic relation with the god on whose birthday the individual was born," says the book The Lore of Birthdays
