Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

Faith

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Miscellaneous Parenting Stuff and Stories that Don't Make Sense.

(I changed the title)


Several weeks ago I was reminded of the Lamb Story.  This is a really good example of why TRUTH is so important, and accurate teaching is vital to parents.
THE FAMOUS BROKEN LAMB LEG STORY:
1. The Famous Story I grew up with about the Shepherd and the Sheep..... and that sweet, SWEET picture of Jesus holding the little sheep that I just love......  The story goes, that Jesus is holding the little lamb because it ran away and he had to use his staff to BREAK IT'S LEG because that was the loving thing to do and now, he holds it till the leg heals and then the sheep will never wander off again......

I believed that story.   And then, as I was trying to find confirmation that it was true, I could only come up with more reasons as to why it ISN'T true.  Most of the info I found said the origin was unknown, and I found a poem by an author Unknown...... and then I got to thinking about it.....

So here is this shepherd out in his field with dozens of little lambs running about..... and BELIEVE ME, they do run off when given opportunity!  They run here and there and if a Shepherd were to use his STAFF to BREAK their LEG, how in the WORLD would he be able to do his job carrying all those baby sheep! LOL  The picture in my mind really made me chuckle.  He wouldn't.
 This is about all a Shepherd can hold... and then he'd have to leave his rod and staff to hold broken legged  lambs!

Thy Rod and Thy Staff they COMFORT me makes total sense.  Breaking little lambs legs doesn't.

As a person who has raised sheep AND goats, the only thing you could do for a sheep or lamb with a broken leg is to put it down. They are prone to infection, and would never be able to escape danger after having a leg broken.

I'm sure glad God doesn't put his sheep down, when we wander into sin.  He lovingly brings us close.
We do not FEAR our heavenly father.  Those who should FEAR Him, are those who would seek to take a little one away FROM him.  He PROTECTS His Sheep.  Sheep should rightfully fear those who wish them harm.
Scripture DOES warn sheep not to wander... and also says, "All we like sheep have gone astray".....but the Loving hand of the Shepherd, keeps those who are His,  close and safe.

QUESTIONS ABOUT PUNISHMENT:
2.  So, if somebody says,  "If you don't punish your children, you aren't disciplining them."
Discipline is DISCIPLESHIP...... Jesus DISCIPLIED the DISCIPLES, whom he called His Children.
I see in scripture where he corrected them and taught them.  He didn't beat them.

CONSISTENCY IN PUNISHMENT:
3. Every time my child does something wrong, I MUST PUNISH them or they are getting away with it."
Hog wash. Where is THAT is scripture?  Where does scripture say to PUNISH a Child each and every time they do something wrong?
What it DOES say, is if you do not Discipline your child, you hate your child. I TOTALLY AGREE with this.  Discipline=Disciple, come along side, teach, instruct, guide.

What if, as an employee, your boss yelled and screamed and berated every single mistake you made in your job.  Or, if they had a whip and they kindly came over to you every time you didn't do what they expected, known or unknown and lashed you and demanded that you be still and not move or they'd start again, AND if you didn't say "why thank you for that", they'd start again...... Not only would you not tolerate it, you'd most likely quit and press charges.  Sometimes, that is what kids do.
They quit; they give up.  How sad.

FIRST TIME OBEDIENCE 100% OF THE TIME:
4. First time obedience, every time, or it isn't obedience.
I disagree.   We are human.... there is no such thing as perfection in the flesh.  First time obedience may  POSSIBLY be achieved in FEAR, or out of FEAR, but there is something inside going on that eventually will come out.... and it won't be good.
I DO believe our children should be obedient and respectful.  Just like I should be a perfect parent.
But, I'm not, and they aren't. AND THAT is where mercy and grace come in.
If we don't MODEL and LIVE mercy and grace to our children, they will learn to be great little law abiding pharisees.
I believe scripture refers to "white washed sepulchres full of dead men's bones".
But to this I will add: MOST of the time, we do have first time obedience, WITH cheerful hearts.
There are times when we don't, and it is dealt with.....but I must ask myself first:
1. Have I been fair?
2. Is this an off day?
3. What is going on underneath, is it a fear issue, a sin issue?
4. What can I do next time to cause a different result?

I'M NOT GETTING ANY RESULTS:
5.   "I am 100% CONSISTENT in Discipline, but I'm Not getting Any Results!"
Isn't that the definition of insanity?  Doing the same thing over and over and over and expecting
something different to happen? LOL   Sounds like the need for a big paradigm shift.

My conclusion:

I am one who does not like Chaos.  I like order and living orderly.  I like a peaceful home.
I love my husband as he is the same way.  He doesn't like chaos either.  Can you achieve a peaceful and happy home without spanking, punishing or threatening your children?  Can you have obedient children who like to obey MOST of the time?  Is your home filled with peaceful and joyful living without spanking?

YES. :) YES. :)  and YES!

And all of our baby lambs will remain intact with no broken legs. Thank You. :)

Zoo Trip 2011

Yep, we went to the zoo again! Today we brought 2 guests; Jana and Marion.  We had a blast. It was everybody else's idea in the Dallas area to go to the zoo too! I guess the 76 degree weather, with sunny skys made the decision!
Today, our high light was watching a VERY large snake eat a VERY LARGE Rabbit! It took about 3o minutes from beginning to end.   Wow! That was an amazing thing to watch.  I am really thankful that we have such a nice zoo.  The Dallas zoo has improved so much over the years.

Their new Wilds of Africa Exhibit is so cool! Today the giraffes were so fun to see. We even got to feed them! Jana let out an EWWWWEEEEE!!!! when one of them licked her shirt. LOL
That is me feeding a giraffe. They really are gentle creatures.
This picture isn't that clear, but this is a VERY large Python eating a rabbit!
It was really cool to watch. Unfortunately, I THOUGHT I had my video going
but I didn't. It was all blank.   However, being so close to something so large
eating that rabbit was amazing.   The last 2 trips to the zoo have been great when looking at snakes.
In over 20 years, we have only seen them move the last 2 times we were there, and this time both large Pythons were feeding.  WOW!

The Girlies and Compassion



Tonight, Sarah and I watched this video about a dog who is wearing a prosthetic paw.  Sarah's response was, "Oh, poor dog, what happened to him?"  "Oh poor thing!"

I have seen Erika at the hospital when we are there for a visit do the same thing.  "Oh poor child!"
One time, she was sitting there with NO FEET recooperating from surgery and saw a little child with CP walking with a limp and was full of sympathy.

It is really sweet that neither of them think this about themselves. They don't think to themselves, "poor me"; in fact, they work hard to overcome their differences and do what everybody else does.... so it is humorous to me when I see their reactions to something like this.

Sarah and Math

The problem:

Draw two parrallel line segments horizontal to each other.
Make one line segment shorter than the other.
Connect the endpoints of the segments to form a quadrilateral.
What kind of quadrilateral did you draw?

Sarah's answer:  A Trappazipple.    

Hmmmm.
Should I give her 1/2 credit? LOL

Watching History

Yesterday and Today we watched "The Diary of Anne Frank".
It is a movie based upon the true story of Anne Frank.
The girlies watched with great interest...... there was secrecy and mystery and fear and love.....


 The Diary of Anne Frank starts with a 13 year old girl in hiding in Amsterdam.  It is about her time of hiding.
Obviously there was a love story involved.......  Sarah is such a hopeless romantic!

I'm really glad we watched this.  It was an amazing movie about real life events.

God's Provision


Many years ago, our son Marcus prayed for a piano so he could learn to play.  The next day, we got a call from Mike's dad who had no idea that his grandson was praying for a piano. He lived in another state.  He called and said, "Hey, do you want a piano? This piano has been sitting here for years, and I'll drive it down and deliver it right to you!"  WOW! What an answer to prayer!  Marcus DID learn to play that piano beautifully, and it went away with him when he married. It was his own personal answer to a very sweet prayer.

Then came the girls...... Now that they are a little older, interests are changing, and music has been on everybody's mind. They have a guitar, and I even bought a violin for ME, to see if I could relearn some old bad habits. LOL  (it was a great buy on Ebay)

Last night, Mike and I were talking about wishing we had a piano once again, even a little practice piano so the girls could learn, and we could have music in the house once again that didn't squeak! (my violin playing can make one cry)
We both looked at each other and said, "God will provide, if He wants us to have one!"  We didn't even have a chance to pray about it!

Today, one of our customers drove up and knocked on the door.  In the back of his truck was a practice piano, with bench and music!  I couldn't believe it!  He just said, "We want you to have this!" LOL

It is amazing how the Lord works in our lives and helps our faith to grow. :)
So, here it is!

I can't wait to hear Bach's Invention 8 once again!

Somebody's Growing Up!

There were moments when I wondered, "Would she REALLY NOT go to college purring?"
That is what I told myself. :) Just like I promised myself Joe would not go to college in diapers.
 Well, It has happened. Apparently Brad Paisley has won out over cats! The cat decorations came down and we have been serenated to Brad Paisley songs, only the good ones of course, for about a week now.  The room walls have been redecorated and I do believe we have entered a new stage in our sweeties life.
 Hmmm. I wonder who it could be? :)  Just in case you were wondering:


Our sweet Anna girl! :)
Our sweet Joe DID go to college without his diapers. :)

Sarah and Her Daddy

She is going through such a sweet stage.... She is still a little girl and yet becoming a mature lady too.
Her best friend gave her a diary with a voice controlled password.  She was sitting in the living room repeating her name into the speaker to get that diary opened to no avail.  Daddy rescued that situation by taking out the batteries to reset the code.  She just beamed at him and said, "Oh Daddy! You are the Best!
I think he liked that. :)

Funny Things You Never Expect To Have a Discussion About

She has begun to outgrow her legs, and before that happens, they start a new pair so she won't go without. One time,  we waited too long and she wound up not having feet for a few months!
So, as we were sitting there waiting to see the doctor, the therapist, the prosthetist and everybody else that comes to see us every time we go,  and after she had put on her shorts..... we had a discussion about what her new legs would look like. 
So here we are, mother and daughter, sitting in a small room for what seemed like hours and we were talking about TATTOOS!  We were talking about what would adorn her legs next and her comment was, "Well mom, you know I don't like wearing dresses anyway, so if I didn't have to wear a dress, nobody would have noticed my playing cards and money. LOLSo then I say, but Erika, I really think you need to be prepared for Shorts and warmer weather, and really, we should be careful about what we want to portray on our legs..... and then I say, "If these weren't prosthetics, we wouldn't even be having this discussion! 

Sometimes it is hard, when there is STRONG influence to let the kids pick things that normally wouldn't be appropriate..... I think when they are littler, a butterfly or horse or princess is fine..... but now that they are older, I think we need to tone it down.
As we were driving home it kind of cracked me up that we were even having such a conversation.  If you had talked to me 10 years ago I wouldn't have understood anything about the world of prosthetics.
It is amazing how life changes.

Sarah has already agreed that she probably won't get anything put on her next set of legs.  I am hoping Erika feels the same way soon, even if she doesn't wear a dress. :) 
BUT.... I have put my foot down on the money and cards. ........that won't happen again.

Michelangelo

Each of the girls picked a person to study this week.  Erika picked Michelangelo.
I thought she did a pretty good job at her recreation of "Creation of Man" by Michelangelo.

The Confusion of Beyond Consequences Logic and Control Part 2

I was talking with somebody the other day, and over the last few months, more than one person.... about BCLC and how it works.  There are so many mis understandings about it, and I think maybe clarifying would be very helpful for those trying to put it into practice.

I wrote part one here:

BCLC is not really a program. It is a paradigm shift in thinking.  Instead of ASSUMING that all behaviors that are negative are stemming from rebellion, manipulation, and trying to get at you,
we consider that the child 1. Is not scheming to get at all your buttons. 2. Is in Protection Mode
3. Is operating from what is called Fright and Flight mode..... (they aren't thinking rationally)

Children with trauma backgrounds DO HEAL, CAN HEAL and WILL HEAL..... but if they are looked at in such negative ways as everything is either of cold calculation or manipulation or defiance and rebellion, AND, they are confused by those labels.... meaning, they don't understand why somebody would say such a thing about them, and they are hurt by those words..... the opportunity to heal is slim.

If instead, the child is accepted WHERE THEY ARE, and then brought into a place of firm and loving acceptance, only then can they be guided to a safe place of vulnerability to really heal.
External obedience based upon fear is not healing. It is delayed rage.  But when a child feels SAFE, safe to talk, safe to feel, safe to say what is on their heart, even if those words are hard to hear; only then, can real, life long instruction that will STICK and cause PERMANENT change take place.

Will they be perfect little human beings? No. As, I am not a perfect mama, and am full of imperfections, they will always be human. :)
But, if I don't hold my buttons out to be pushed, they can't push them.  If I am stronger, and the grown up,  and the immovable loving force, that takes them by the hand and REDIRECTS them into a place of love and calm, they will want to stay there, eventually.

For the child who is used to a storm, loving calm can feel REALLY weird and scary. Yes, scary.
They will do everything in their power to stay within the familiar, because it "seems safe".  It is familiar, and when everything else is unfamiliar, and uncharted territory, a good old fashioned storm seems safe in a warped sort of way.

Have you ever met an adult who seems to thrive on Chaos?  Apparently there are alot of them out there, otherwise soap operas wouldn't be so popular.

So, for clarification's sake:  BCLC is not a "coddle fest".  It is not an, "Oh, Suzie, you just tried to burn the house down, I know you are scared, let's go rock in the chair".  LOL

BCLC is instructive and waits instead of tying to accomplish everything in the "heat of the moment".
A child who is out of control cannot learn OR listen when they are in that mode.  Finding the best way to get them calm and quick is the beginning.  NOT the end.
If it is rocking, great. If it is sitting quietly next to them great.  If they are a teenager and they stomp off to their room to self regulate, great.  (don't go storming in) WAIT.
They will not cease to exist in the next 10 minutes or hour.

When things are calm and settled, reaffirm your love. Then, talk to them about better ways to handle things.  Ask THEM, "How do you think you could handle that better?"  "What can mom and dad do to help you?"  You may be surprised by their answers.
Sometimes you might get an "I don't know" and sometimes you might get an ear full. :)
BCLC is gentle shepherd parenting and instruction in righteousness, and right living, without brow
beating and judging every motive.
IS IT POSSIBLE you are dealing with rebellion? Yes it is.  But the instruction doesn't change.
We are ALL rebellious in our hearts towards God.  Yet, God tenderly calls us to come to him and rest.

As you instruct and pray with your child, bringing into the fabric of their lives the word of God,  instruction for life,  talking about past, present and future...... be encouraged that LASTING CHANGE will take place.
Will you go backwards sometimes?  Yes..... but then, you will quickly move forwards too.

We had this experience last week.... and I have to say,  the forwards has not just been 3 steps but about 10.  I am even a little shocked. :)

I think one of the things that helps me understand BCLC the most, is the bible.  God tenderly deals with us. He woo's us, he instructs us, his mercies are new every morning. He is GREAT in Mercy and Grace, not wanting anybody to perish.  He loves us with an everlasting love. The best model I can think of is Jesus himself with the disciples.  He was the gentle shepherd who instructed and taught and taught and instructed, and when Peter said something like, "I'll die for you!"  He said, actually Peter, you are going to deny me, but don't worry..... I am praying for you.... I love you. It will be ok.

Wow. This is our example.  Sometimes we have our kids written off before they are 3.  I know I have said this before.... but one of our sons, had we considered everything he did as negative rebellion and punished him constantly, we wouldn't have the son we have today. I am convinced he could have become a self fulfilling prophecy...... But instead, he is a loving and happy husband and father and a very loving son.

Behaviors are simply gauges to watch, and when they are in the red area, we work to bring them back into compliance and get them to stay there on their own. :)
For some it is much harder work than for others..... but BCLC teaches SELF CONTROL not external control that will blow up later.
It may take a little more time, but once things are set in place, it is pure joy.

Three Steps Forward Two Steps Back Three Steps Forward

On Saturday, we had a bit of a bummer of a day..... I posted about it here.  We all had a good night's sleep, and in the morning, everything was new. EVERYTHING.... attitudes were better, back to normal and actually improved!  Yea!

So we had wonderful day enjoying the Lord, enjoying each other and even had a pot luck.  That was really special since we missed the one on Saturday.   I went ahead and brought roasted beets and the girls were thrilled.

We all settled in last night and enjoyed a documentary on Cougars, and daddy went to the Nursing home to do a bible study with the ladies.  I got the girls off to bed and just enjoyed  some more quiet time. :)

Then, in the morning, I began thinking about the book I read..... "Three Little Words"..... one of the things the little girl wrote about was how, no matter how hard things had been the night before, every morning was a new day, and a fresh start.

That is EXACTLY how I feel each morning, even if the day before has not been the best. I want to present to the girls that God's mercies are new every morning, and every morning is the beginning of a new and wonderful day.
When Anna woke up,  we talked a little about school and a few changes I was going to make to help them improve in a few areas. That is my job...... I let her know ahead of time because she really does not like change.  I showed her carefully how her day would work, and that the new thing we were adding would not take up any more time, we are just cutting back a little on something else.

She looked at me and sincerely asked, "Have you noticed how hard I'm trying?"  I said, I SURE HAVE! And she had a big grin and gave me the most genuine hug.  She said, "Mom I love you!"
I told her the same..... and then I sat back and thought, wow! We have REALLY moved forward!
LOL

Typically news of a change would not have gone over so well at all...... she would have complied but it would have been more reluctant, and then after a couple of days she might admit she actually liked it..... but today was a NEW ANNA....  good for her!
Love that kid. :)

Erika and Sarah asked some good questions about what would be expected with the new assignments and they were ALL very happy that Laura Ingalls Wilder used some of the very same books they are using. :)

So, we are off to a great start of a great 2nd semester.......and no, we didn't take a snow day. :)

It Snowed



and we are staying toasty warm inside with our handy, dandy, wood stove. :)
