Blogger probs

Blogger keeps crashing. I found out today that IPhone has stopped offering the app . I will be investigating other platforms and moving the content of this blog soon. Any suggestion of what works well ?

New word from a dream

Koshabetic- I got a new word in a dream . I will explore the root meaning of the 2 parts of the two words. 
My first impression is an unhealthy balance of trying to keep to rules. We will have to see is that would be true. Hmmm...

Prompted 2

Today's prompt is pattern. And just today I was experimenting with a coloring book app. So here is my pattern-
Funny picture, huh? Well- I needed so serious brain unwinding after driving most of the day and having to head home in holiday Friday traffic! But ... Dad got his chair!

Photo prompts

So , I found this on Instagram...a September calendar of photo prompts. I though I might give it a whirl. But A.D.D. As I am I didn't remember it until I was in the bed. So I found a "vintage " item I could improvise for a photo. This is a lovely vintage pillow case that I will be making into a dress or apron for my grand daughter. Forgive the wrinkles. I did say I improvised!

Long days , short years

A friend of mine posted on Facebook the other day about being slightly overwhelmed with the chores that come with motherhood. She said she realizes that the days are long and hard but the years are short and will be sweet. That resonated with my soul!
Our youngest is engaged to be married. I already have plans for the room that he will be moving out of. It will be my craft room. I already have the layout drawn, and dancing around in my brain. I am very excited about it because I think it will help the entire house flow better. But in the same respect – I do not want to rush them out the door.
 I can say with all honesty I have thoroughly enjoyed my children. And now, praise the Lord, I am getting to also enjoy my first grandchild. But if you had asked me 10 years ago, I would have agreed that some of the days in the trenches of homeschool, meals, laundry, arguments about rooms and curfews - they were some pretty long days!
I think God is teaching me not to wish away my days forwards or backwards! I want to remember the sweetness of my children when they were little but I want to embrace the future of grandbabies to hold and growing old with my Mr. Wonderful. 
And yet I always want to have in mind, "even so, come Lord Jesus!"

Seeing good

I heard the sweetest thing today ... A young man said that he wanted to be an all in dad . That he wanted to come home to his kids and a wife sitting on the porch reading a book . This is a hard working , rough cut young man . He is holding down a full time job , trying to go to school 2 nights a week to get his GED . And then maybe he will go to a trade school to better his life and his families life . Him and his wife have a 2 year old girl and a 3 year old boy .
If you are reading this , say a prayer for him and his family . They could use some divine intervention , guidance and favor !

I had on a popular , upbeat Christian song that has lyrics that say "We were made to thrive" . And then God whisper "failure to thrive" . GASP ! I have know people who had children who were labeled with a condition know as FTT (Failure to thrive) . It means not growing and gaining weight at the expected rate , not meeting the milestone of development in a timely manner . Not keeping up with the progress of their peers of age and gender.
Christians sometimes have FTT it seems . They aren't growing . What they are taking in isn't healthy or helping them . Or despite good input , their body isn't using it well for gain and growth . High implications . Thought provoking , isn't it ?
What's causing Failure to thrive in your life in Christ ? Did you make a confession of faith and go right back to the cesspool of sin , feeling like "fire insurance" was good enough ? Do you regularly ingest things that you know are not healthy for you ? Feeding your eyes , ears , heart and mind with ungodly , unrighteous things ?
Do you tune out your pastor 1/2 way through on Sunday because you are trying to pick a lunch spot ? And by Tuesday you could tell a friend where you went to lunch on Sunday , but not what your pastors message was about . Not remembering a single worship song that was sang ...
Could these things be symptoms of FTT ? They could indeed ! But I know a wonderful thing . We have a standing appointment with The Great Physician ! He can heal us . He can cleanse us . He can change the things we crave . He can help us to better use what is available to us . Won't you get a check up today with Him ? I am !
