The Vision

A simple, private, safe place for me to unload and reflect my thoughts.

Spiritual Food for the Day

Just real quick.... I don't know who all looks at this or reads it but I am hoping that within my "chosen few" there are some ideas or resources you can throw at me.  I am wanting to come up with a different/better way to maintain household duties/chores while working full/part time.  When I am working part time, I am able to keep up quite a bit but still not to my satisfaction and would just like some feedback/ideas on how I can better my system.  With me working full time for the time being, I feel like things spiral out of control very quickly, especially during this season.  When we do have a little time at home, I am so exhausted, the thought of tackling the mountain of work seems impossible.  I know doing a little everday is the trick but so far I haven't came up with a system that I can maintain that mentality.  I read something today while searching on this subject and it said you have to create a habit to replace one.  I know it is very true but I guess i just lack the "umph" to do that.

Anyway, any and all help would be appreciated!

Twas the month before CHRISTMAS....

*Twas the month before Christmas*
*When all through our land,*
*Not a Christian was praying*
*Nor taking a stand.*
*See the PC Police had taken away,*
*The reason for Christmas – no one could say.*
*The children were told by their schools not to sing,*
*About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.*
*It might hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say*
* December 25th is just a ‘ Holiday ‘.*
*Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit*
*Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!*
*CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod*
*Something was changing, something quite odd! *
*Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa*
*In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.*
*As Targets were hanging their trees upside down*
* At Lowe’s the word Christmas – was no where to be found.*
*At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears*
*You won’t hear the word Christmas; it won’t touch your ears.*
*Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty*
*Are words that were used to intimidate me.*
*Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen*
*On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton !*
*At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter*
*To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.*
*And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith*
* Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace*
*The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded*
*The reason for the season, stopped before it started.*
*So as you celebrate ‘Winter Break’ under your ‘Dream Tree’*
*Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.*
*Choose your words carefully, choose what you say*
not Happy Holiday !*

Christ is ‘The Reason’ for the Christ-mas Season!

Weekend Update...

Well I can officially say the weekend is over.  It was a long, exhausting one but so good!  It was such a wonderful thing, watching my sister walk down the isle at her winter wonderland wedding to become Mrs. Joel Reavis.  The day went wonderful, everything on schedule and went smoothly.  My hubby did a wonderful job marrying them as well!  Joel's brother was unable to make, got caught in the wicked (but so pretty!) snow storm :(  But other than that, everything went and was beautiful!  Here is a family pic we snapped after the wedding....
