Inspiration ... on this earth

My inspiration comes from The Creator, Whose artwork in His creation is wonderful!

His ways are higher than our ways.
His thoughts are higher than our thoughts.

He paints the skies, even when the rich (who pay pilots to spew poisonous chemicals into our atmosphere, continue to try to poison us, our land & our water The Creator has given to us, as gifts) are intent on affecting The Creator's skies we see with chemicals that try to hide, or alter, our view toward His heavens.

My inspiration originates from His written Word.
He uses poetic language, in the form of prayer songs.
He also uses historical information, about kings, about people and about honorable spiritual leaders.
He also uses stories told (at times) in parable form.
He also uses metaphors, as well as concepts that lend themselves to being included in allegorical-type stories made into movies, by humans who want to try to translate His concepts into an acceptable, and thought-provoking, format, for anyone who's willing to view it.  We can learn a lot from these,
in our modern time, since so many will not take time to pick up a good book & read....

The artistic Creator, Who *is* creative, and brought forth the very concept of creativity into His world, onto His earth, ... has produced many amazing designs we can see while looking at a brook, or a small stream, or a creek, and noticing the ways the water flows over the many shapes and sizes of stones and rocks.

Our Creator has put design also into the limbs and trunks of trees, if we will but notice what He's done.
He also uses the orderly, and predictable, shapes to help us to recognize safe-to-eat species of plants -- or trees (by their type of bark, and color, and trunk direction, whether bent, or straight, or in between).

Our Father in heaven, Whose Creation He is allowing us to enjoy, today (I believe), wants us to appreciate what He has put here, on His earth, on loan to us.
He seems to allow us so much freedom of choice, so much free-will choosing, while also expecting us to act responsibly with our use of His creation.
He seems to want us to use it thoughtfully and ... He, then, will reward us if we do that.

Let's please The One on Whose earth we dwell ... by noticing the details in His created things, including the petals on flowers, as well as their aroma, or the aroma of blossoms we see at this time of year, ... while also noticing the multiplicity of edible plants, and flowers, He has placed here to help us.

Let's appreciate what He has done AND tell Him, each day, "a hearty Thank You!"  He deserves it.  We actually do not deserve what He has put here for us to use and to enjoy (responsibly).

If you have some thoughts to share, on this topic, and on a more specific topic within this topic of appreciating our Creator's beautiful and inspiring creation, leave me a comment, ... won't you?

Shalom

Life goes onward and forward

Has your life made a positive turn toward The Light?

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+15&version=TLV

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+15&version=NASB

The words shared by "ha Goel (The Savior)," Yeshua (Jesus' Hebrew Name His earthly mom and dad called Him), in Yochanan (John) 15, can lead you to not only * seek * The Light, but also to * walk in * and * abide in * The Light.

In John 15:9-17, you may read about Yeshua teaching His disciplined ones, His talmidim (His taught ones), that "if you keep (guard) My Commandments, you shall (a more certain form of "will") abide (dwell) in My Love, even as I have kept My Father's Commandments, and abide in His Love."

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+15%3A9-24&version=KJV
.
Wow! -- Yeshua's Words sure can cut to the heart!  He is direct & concise!  Yet, He continually quotes from The written Word of Elohim YHVH, Avinu (our Father)'s teachings in both The Torah (Torah, in Hebrew, means instruction, teaching) and in the remainder of what many still mistakenly refer to as "the old testament."  Those words, in quotes, there, are merely what modern-day publishers, Bible printers, print on the "title page" they added, one page in front of the English versions of books like Genesis and Matthew.  Those words neither were penned in the Koinonia Greek language, nor were they written in the original Hebrew.  Study up on this, friends!

Anyway, the point is:  Yeshua, The only-begotten of The Father, full of Grace and Truth, was unable to lie, unable to do evil, and yet, so many still choose to treat Him with disrespect, disdain and disloyalty. !  He simply wants (seems to me, to be wanting) us to trust Him, keep / guard His Commands He's given, ... from the beginning ....  If we do that, He says we will abide (we'll be showing we do abide) in Him (Yeshua).  Yeshua * is * in The Father.  He abides in Him (Avinu = our Father).  Yeshua wants us to abide in Him (Yeshua, Who is * in * The Father.).

Got it?
If you'd like more passages, in The written Word, where I got this information from, I'll be glad to share those with you!  (smile)
Leave me a Comment, and we can grow together in what He continues to teach us!

Shalom

Exploring ...

Have you ever traveled somewhere, out in the countryside, in the US, and were pleasantly pleased to drive by a small establishment that serves ice cream by the scoop, owned by a retired couple, who are friendly and quite fun to talk with?

I did, in North Carolina, not far from Linville Falls.
The ice cream was high quality!
And, the conversation was pleasant!

Enjoy the places you travel by, and stop in whenever you can spare the time, friends!
You will be glad you did!
There are so many thousands of great, family-owned, family-run folks, who do care about the quality of what they offer to the buying public!

Be sure to say "Thank you!" with a genuine smile, before you leave.  Even if you do not buy anything, they will appreciate your gratefulness for having found them!  And, tell someone else about the place you visited!
The one I went to does not have a website.  So, I am not sharing a link to it, here.
But, most do.  (smile)

Do Your Own Research on The Temple

The actual location of the future-coming Temple of Almighty Elohim (G-d), in Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), is the focus of quite a bit of Research going on, in Yisrael (Israel). (and in other countries, too!)

I trust some sources.  I recommend you check out what Joseph Good has figured out, my friend!  He is usually accurate.


With that in mind, I will (in this post) be sharing several links to websites that offer * their viewpoint * for *where* the actual Temple will be (and, in the past, truly *was*) built (located).

I trust you will feel like you've benefitted from having read this information (whatever info you choose to read, from among the links, below):

http://hope-of-israel.org/realsite.html

http://templemountfaithful.org/articles/the-real-location-of-the-first-second-and-third-holy-temple-is-on-the-temple-mount-in-jerusalem.php

http://templemountlocation.com/bobCornukeTheoryDisputed.html

https://jerusalem-watch.com/the-true-location-of-ancient-biblical-jerusalem/

There are other websites that share several perspectives on the location of the Second Temple (of Solomon), besides the ones I have shared links to, above here.

I hope you will gain some thoughtful, and useful, ideas from perusing the various links I've shared!
This is definitely a topic I'd like to read some more information about!  Wouldn't you?

How Have You Been ...?

Life has kept me so busy that I have posted on Twitter, daily, at https://twitter.com/ElElyonsFriend, but not here, lately.

... and ...

I often add New Posts on another Blog Of Mine (BOM), at FindTheRest.wordpress.com/.  Those usually have to do with spiritual insights that Almighty G-d (Elohim YHVH) is teaching me, as well as Sites of Others that I recommend.

Yet, I would like for you to know I have A Blog At (ABA):  https://ThreadsOfSilver.wordpress.com/.  If you are a mom or a young lady, or one who home educates, or helps your spouse teach your own children in your house & elsewhere "along the journey of life," you will be glad you visited that blog!  It is not fancy.  It is practical and meant to be quite helpful!

        _       _       _       _       _       _       _

In case you were not aware that (nat) these are other places where you can keep up with (kuw) what I am actively doing, online (ado), now, you know!

            ~*~              ~*~              ~*~               ~*~              ~*~              ~*~              ~*~

My new life with a fantastic man, my husband, Ken, has been wonderfully filled with happy happenings, as well as wonderful walks in areas where woods abound with wild life (yes, I know how to spell "wildlife," but I am not using it in that way, friends!) and water flows from springs as well as from the run-off after a good rain. I have been so grateful to Almighty G-d, Elohim YHVH Melech ha olam (The King eternal, Who rules over everything, everywhere = Melech ha olam), that He brought Ken and me together!

        A Few Thoughts On A Couple Of Things I Am Learning About, Recently

We are learning more about, and moving in the direction of, seeing The Mighty One (El Gibor), Elohim YHVH, provide a special place for our future wanderings and for our upcoming service to others, believers and  (some would call it ministry; I wish there was an American English word that would more accurately describe what I mean by what I am stating, here).

Today, I ran across a couple of interesting posts by a couple who have built a house using Cordwood Construction:

https://accidentalhippies.com/2016/07/28/cordwood-for-beginners/

https://accidentalhippies.com/2017/01/08/cordwood-rot/

You all may gain some good from reading through these two posts the blog owners shared!
I did!

                +          +          +          +          +           +          +          +

Will write more, real soon, friends!

Keep Looking Up, because your Redemption is drawing nigh! Yeshua will be coming soon! Not much more has to occur before Yeshua returns! Yet, too many people on His earth simply Do Not Know Him! Will you behave as A Warrior In Prayer? so The Truth reaches the people who see you, regularly, though you may not notice how many that amounts to?

- - - Will you Stand In The Gap, as Moses did for the children of Israel, when Elohim YHVH, El Shaddai, was ready to eliminate them, at Mount Sinai, because of their wrong attitude and their actions that showed Elohim YHVH that they were going to go astray, no matter how many miraculous things YHVH did for them, to protect, provide and defend, deliver, them (!)?

- - - Will you be willing to be A Watchman, for the souls of those you know, already, who may not be Abiding in Yeshua as He would want them to do?  A Watchman *must* speak the Truths & Teachings of YHVH Who rules over everyone everywhere!
Why?  Because, if he / she does Not Speak about what Elohim YHVH has inspired men to write down in His written Word, then The Watchman will be held responsible for their everlasting souls' destination being Not Where YHVH "hoped" Those Souls Would spend their everlasting-ness!

Neither you, nor I, want to have that responsibility. It sounds too big!, right?  Yet, Elohim YHVH has enabled both you, and me, to do this! (if we have yielded our lives, our minds, our wills, our hearts, our souls & human spirits to Yeshua, believing He is truly The Son of Elohim YHVH, and He died after taking upon Himself, willingly, all the punishment we, each, deserved for our wrong attitudes, our wrong affections, our unwillingness to just do the right thing from His Viewpoint, not ours, ... and our negative, darkness-motivated thoughts, words and actions ... and attitudes.)

Let's be Warriors In Prayer!  Let's study, not just read, His written Word!
  Let's trust Him beyond what our minds or our hearts can imagine or think!  Elohim YHVH will do what is His Plan for each of us, in us, for us and through us, if only We Will Trust Him WholeHeartedly!  Will we?        Let's choose to do that!  He will do the rest!
  He will enable us to walk through whatever obstacle-filled pathways He knows are ahead of us, yet He will reward us richly (maybe we will only see that manifested in His future Kingdom eternal)!  He just wants someone to willingly choose to be An Intercessor, ...who will Stand In The Gap for other souls who, at this point in time, do not "get it," yet.  Will we show ourselves to be Faithful to The One Who has shown Himself to be The Most Loyal, Faithful One we could ever know (or "meet").

Let's do it, friends!  There is no greater calling!  Being a parent means you stand in the gap.  Serving others because you care about them ... means you stand in the gap.  Walking in Faith, doing things you feel certain, and see confirmed, that Elohim YHVH has told you to do ... means you stand in the gap.  Giving of your time, voluntarily, to help others who do not have a way of helping themselves with certain tasks ... means you stand in the gap.
I could list other ways "you can stand in the gap," that you have not realized represented that, yet you know those.  So, I will spare you.

Shalom

Life continues to amaze me, as I learn more about our Maker

* My good friends, who read this blog,
this post was previously written, long, long ago.
I am including it here simply because its content
may encourage one of you, or someone else who
reads it, one day.  Shalom to all who know YHVH
and Yeshua! - - Note:  I did not change the spelling
I used to use for YHVH's Name, from YHWH, in
the post, below.  He knows Who He is.  I am choosing
to leave that part unchanged. My blog; my choice.
Thank you for listening!  Have a wonderful day in
our Master's Hands! *

Life still amazes us, if we will just keep looking up, and see The Light! The Bright and Morning Star! He shines for us, and through us, if we will but let Him "shine."

He is there and is ready to help us with any need we have. He becomes the grand fulfiller of needs, to everyone who calls upon Him, in believing trust. Just ask Him. His Name is Yeshua ha Mashiach. (some spell it differently; He is God Almighty's only-begotten Son, born of a virgin, Who suffered, died, was buried in a borrowed tomb, and was resurrected from the dead the third day. He now lives in Heaven. He gives us His Holy Spirit, the Ruach ha Kodesh, as His promise, and as our Teacher, so that we always have His Spirit with us.)

The one thing we can count on is ... that God is for us. Hallelujah ! Who can be against us, if we are in God's family of "friends"? In His family, we are either engrafted into His Vine, of The Anointed One of God, His Son Yeshua the Messiah ... or else we were wild branches in His Vine.

Either way, our Maker / Master Gardener / Vinedresser designs life so that we are wooed by Him, drawn by Him into His living Vine. He gives us His sustaining Life-blood to keep us going. He also gives us Food for thought. He shares that through His living Word. It is better than the most healthy food we could find. It keeps us "alive in Him." His living Word: some call it The Bible; some call it either the Old Covenant or the New Covenant Yeshua brought in, since He is the fulfillment / goal of The Law and The Prophets, which most call The Tanach. He is One * with * YHVH, Who changes not, so, from a viewpoint like Yeshua's, He * could not * change anything that YHVH, His Father, had previously taught or instructed! He is the same yesterday, today and for ever.

Yeshua said "Think not that I am come to destroy The Law, or the Prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily, I say unto you, Till Heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from The Law, till all be fulfilled." To understand this, and most all things in life on earth, and life in Heaven, you must be born again. In John 3:3, Yeshua shared "...verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again (of water and of The Spirit, Yeshua says later, in John 3: 5) (by one's belief in Him, by faith, through God's Grace), He cannot see the Kingdom of God." John 3: 5 says "...Except a man be born again, of water and of The Spirit (of God the Father), he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God."

God our Father in Heaven, Who made us, and sustains us, gives us the faith to believe in Him and in His Son. He also gives us the directions for what to do next. He even gives us the Strength to go on, when trials or suffering or roadblocks come along, while we are on earth. He keeps all His promises, so all we need do is learn them, remember them, think on them, and live by them, asking Him to bring them about, on our behalf. He will do it.

God says Himself that nothing is too hard for Him. That is true. All His Word is Truth! So, we can count on Him to bring about all good things He has written down, using men's hands to share His thoughts with us. We can count on our Father to hear and answer all our prayers. If we ask believing, not doubting. If we ask for what He wants us to have. If we ask for what will bring attention and glory to Him alone. If we ask for what pleases Him and can be used by Him to change the lives of others, through the mighty miracles He is easily able to bring about. If we ask knowing Him. If we ask as a result of keeping His commandments, especially those shared by His Son, Yeshua, in The New Covenant (called the New Testament by many believers). If we ask as a result of keeping His Word, and of abiding in Yeshua, our Lord, Saviour, Redeemer and The Propitiation for our sins ... and of those of all people who are in this world.


*Anyone who will believe can receive Yeshua's free gift (we cannot buy it by our good works or being "a good person.") of deliverance from the punishment we deserve for our sins, our iniquities and our sinfulness that is inborn in us.

If we call upon The Name (ha Shem) of The Lord YHWH, we will be "saved." That means our sins will not be imputed to us. Our "account" will be marked "paid in full." How is that? Yeshua was the sinless (by choice) volunteer, Who came to earth for the purpose of ''laying down His Life for His friends." He calls anyone "friend" (as He shares in John 15: 7-17) who does *whatsoever* He commands them to do. (see James' writings, for more information on this concept. He was one of Yeshua's real-life, human half-brothers! He knew.)

His commands can be found in The Word (The Bible, the living Word of God). Yeshua's free-will sacrifice of His life (as the only innocent-of-sin, truly pure-hearted, whole-heartedly obedient human, Emmanuel, "God-with-us") paved the way for anyone who will choose to believe what He stands for, what He taught, what He did in our place on the Roman execution stake (some call 'the cross') ... realizing that they can do nothing on their own to earn eternal life or a ticket to Heaven ... due to their breaking any one or all of The Ten Commandments, as taught in Exodus 20: 1-17. None of us can live "righteous" lives, on our own, in our own strength. When God / Yeshua is our Strength, He shows us that when we are weak, that is when He is strong. He just wants us to "stand and see the salvation of The Lord." -- Exodus 14: 13 "Fear ye not, stand still and see the salvation (Yeshua) of The Lord YHWH ...." Though He was speaking there to His people Israel, He also speaks those words to us. Fear not.

Stand ... as He does in the letter Paul wrote to the Ephesian believers:
Ephesians 6: 10-11, 13-14, 16, 17 "Finally, my brethren, be strong in The Lord (Adonai), and in the power of His Might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles (schemes) of the devil. ... wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand (firm in His strength, authority). Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with Truth, and having on the breastplate of Righteousness; ... Above all, taking the shield of Faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Rhema / Word of God:"

In the book of James (New Covenant), one of Yeshua's real-life half brothers shares that (James 2: 10) "... whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all." "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God," as Rav Shaul (Paul) shares in his letter to the Roman believers in Romans 3: 23, of the New Covenant.

We must become aware of our spiritual condition. We must acknowledge our complete dependence on God, our Father, for everything, after we have seen clearly our completely hopeless condition we have lived in, ... in our flesh, and for our own selves, for our own unenlightened motives.

Only The true Light can show us The Way. He is Yeshua, God's Son! Only The One Who has been tempted in all ways like as we are tempted, but Who did not choose to sin ... can understand all that we go through, each day, and yet show us The Way out of doing what's wrong. He can show us how to choose to do what is right! We must simply choose to listen to Him! And trust in Him! He is able to do all things!

He created the entire universe. Helping us is so easy for Him! He loves "being there" for us. His Name is YHWH Shammah.

He loves lifting us up, since He is our gentle but strong Shepherd, YHWH Raah. He *is* the Strong One, El. And He is El Shaddai, our All-Sufficient One!

He needs nothing. He simply chooses to give us His Love, and He planned it out before we were born on this earth. He chose to come suffer to pay the sin debt each of us owe to God our Maker, just because He loves us.

He even designs things to happen in this world to get our attention, so we will begin to listen to His loving Voice! And He promises He cares for us, and because of that, He says we must cast all our cares upon Him.

I Peter 5: 5 First, He tells us to "be clothed in humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth (continually) grace (the power / ability and the desire to do His Will) to the humble."

We just need to see we can do nothing, of ourselves, to deliver us from any danger or any problem, or from our future, after death, to determine "where" we will *go.* We can only *cry out* to our Maker, God our Father, asking Him "save me, Lord!" Then, He answers us! ... with Love, tenderness, Peace that passes all understanding, and Joy. His Joy is our Strength.

He wants us to hope only in Him, since He knows He alone holds the universe together, and He alone can deliver us from all harm. He delivers us from the domain of darkness and transfers us into the Kingdom of His Dear Son, Yeshua, into His Kingdom of marvelous Light. He is able. Remember, nothing is too hard for Him!

He loves you, and always will. He will never leave you, if you are His child, nor will He forsake you, because He can only can do good. He cannot do anything evil.

James reminds us (James 1: 12, 13, 14, 15, 16,17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22)
"Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which The Lord hath promised to them that love Him. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth He any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. Do not err, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from The Father of lights, with whom is not variableness, neither shadow of turning. Of His own Will begat He us with The Word of Truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of His creatures. Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted Word, which is able to save (deliver) your souls. But be ye doers of The Word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves."

Hallelujah!

... more blessings than we can imagine are available to each of us, in Him.

God will supply "the rest of the story" Himself. He knows your need. He will fulfill it. And He will bless you with His deliverance, as He sees fit, according to your belief, and your heart attitude.

For those of you who already know Him: Keep believing in Yeshua! Keep trusting in what He ways, and not in what you think or feel.

Proverbs 3: 1-14 reminds me "My son (my daughter), forget not My Law; (My Teaching, in My Torah) but let thine heart keep My Commandments: For length of days, and long life, and Peace, shall they add to thee. Let not Mercy and Truth forsake thee: bind them about they neck; write them on the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man. Trust in The Lord YHWH with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him (thank Him, realize He has done it all, and enabled you to do any good thing, and has delivered you from any danger or trouble, any time it has occurred.), and He shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord (reverence Him, realize Who He is and honor Him, knowing He alone can destroy or revive or renew you or your soul; your life is in His Hands at all times) and depart from evil. It shall be health to your navel, and marrow to thy bones. Honor The Lord YHWH with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and they presses shall burst out with new wine. My son (my daughter), despise not the chastening of The Lord YHWH; neither be weary of His correction: For whom The Lord YHWH loveth He correcteth; even as a father the son in whom He delighteth. Happy is the man that findeth Wisdom, and the man that getteth Understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof (more) than fine gold."

Proverbs 22: 4 reminds us that "By humility and the fear of The Lord YHWH are riches, and honor, and life." Spiritual riches. Honor the Lord, and He will honor you. Spiritual Life -- life eternal! He alone can grant that. Ask Him.

When I realize my condition before I trusted in Messiah to ''deliver me,'' I see I was on the road to destruction, ... eternal destruction! I can put my trust in Him now. He alone can deliver me from the results of me living life my way. He is The Way to true Life eternal.

Yeshua has redeemed me, by His Grace, with His Blood He shed in my place, on the Roman execution stake, one day, almost 2000 years ago. He gave His Life for me. Will I give my life for Him?

He knows I am unworthy. He knows I do not deserve to live with Him forever. He knows He is my only Hope. My expectation comes from Him alone. -- King David said in Psalm 62: 5-7 "My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from Him. He only is my Rock and my Salvation (my Deliverer): my Defense; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my Glory: the Rock of my strength, and my Refuge, is in God." -- Hallelujah!

He is able to deliver you, too. ;o) Just ask Him. He is always home, and always ready to listen. His heart is tender toward you. He is the most patient Friend anyone could have. He *is* Understanding! He *is* Love! He knows all you are going through. And Yeshua goes through it *with* you! He is our Compassionate Friend.
He knows. He knows all we've done, ... and He still chooses to love us, as we are. He changes us ... over time. As we choose to take one step forward, He lifts us up to accomplish that. He leads us, directs our steps, and even lights our pathway. He is there when we arrive at the goal line.

And He is The One Who chose us, as He reminds us in John 15: 16 "Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit (souls we've won for His Kingdom), and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of The Father in My Name, He may give it (to) you." Hallelujah!

He is good to us, His children, ... all the time. We just have to look with pure-hearted eyes, to see clearly what He has done for us, and He is busy at work every day. We just don't always see what He has protected us "from." But He does. And He will wait for us to thank Him, but He does hope we will *thank* Him, every day, for His blessings. They are so many, we cannot count them all. If we tried to, we would find that they are more in number than the sands of the seashore ... innumerable.

In Rav Shaul's (Paul's) letter to the Galatians, he reminds us: "I am crucified with Messiah: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Messiah liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of The Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself for me."

God bless you all! ... more next time.

Hopefully Helpful Hints for you IF you Teach at Home

Ladies and Gents,

Am going to use this post to share some hopefully helpful hints with you that will bless your day and week!

There are now quite a few websites that offer some great ( very high quality ) curriculum and / or online educational programs, especially for high-school-age learners!  If you want to share your wisdom and perspective on your favorites, please Leave Me A Comment! ( below, please! )

I will share with you some of my thoughts on this topic:

        1.  The Ron Paul Curriculum --

        This program seems to be quite well planned out!  I am not so sure that the cost of it, at this time, is affordable foremost single moms, though.  So, have had to, again, choose Not To Sign Up for this program, much to my regret.  Perhaps, some time in the future, such programs as this one will get more creative and realistic, and realize that some of us are earning a few dollars more, per hour, than minimum wage in one of the lowest-income states in the USA.  That leaves absolutely No Room For Us To Use These Wonderful Learning Programs!  ( seems quite unfair )

         I do hope that, after contacting them, I may find ( this time ) that they will be willing to work out a reasonable payment plan, to make the program reachable to many more single moms, instead of just assuming that most of us single moms have credit cards with high credit limits.  Having a credit card, at all, for some who Teach At Home, is not what they'd prefer.  Why?  Because it does not agree with the teachings The Creator has inspired men to put into writing.  It also does not fit in with the economics model that Mr. Paul seems to speak about in talks he's shared, or that he espouses, as far as I can recall.

More Thoughts ...soon!

How to Clean Your Space, Low-Stress Style!

Hey, are you tired of feeling real tired, physically, by about 3 p.m.? or, by the time you arrive at home, after work?

Do your eyes feel so worn out, from reading information on a computer screen, that you feel like you are developing a headache?  or, you already realize you *have* an achy head?!?

Ever wish you (even you work-with-young-minds-at-home ladies!) could find a way for some other human being to do the house*work* at your place, instead of you? !?  Is it because your body's sense of "Motivate Me!" has gone out the window?  I mean, whose body feels like tackling a housecleaning task like vacuuming a living, dining, kitchen & hallway area after a day of ... cleaning elsewhere? (even if you only spent 3 hours cleaning elsewhere)

Have you found a bunch of young people, ... okay, I mean within your own household!, who will take (or have taken) over your home place house cleaning responsibilities?  No?!?  Oh dear!  Then, get hopping and find out why you have a 2 - 3 year old who does not LOVE to wash dishes in your sink ( the dishes, pans, utensils are in the sink, ladies, ... not the 2 - 3 year old )!  They all do! ...at least all the ones I've met DO!  The more bubbles there are, the better!

There are articles galore that'll tell you what most typical children are capable of going to serve their own parents while young.  This is not at all unkind or mean (cruel) to a child. !!  It is wonderful training, if done in an enjoyable, motivational, we-can-knock-out-this-job in a few minutes' time (& check it off our days TO DO List!) way!  Right?  Of course right!

If you find you are the only one around to do the in-house cleaning at your abode, don't give up hope, friends!  One person has seen his/her German shepherd (older puppy) learn how to, & enjoy, pushing & pulling the vacuum along the floors needing vacuuming!  Really!  I saw it!  I was impressed!

If you do not happen to have a vacuuming - loving dog, who'll do a good job of vacuuming at your place, then, schedule your cleaning moments this way:

1. clean your most-frequently-used areas first.  ...in each room.  These will be the areas that tend to be the dirtiest.

2. Clean for 5 - 10 minutes at a time.  Do your scrubbing, or sweeping, or mopping, or vacuuming, or dishwashing as diligently & thoroughly as you would do IF you were working at this & being paid well for it!  Do Your Best!

3. Short bursts of Clean-It-Well Moments will prove to be a great way to get 'r done ...and, soon, you'll see your efforts have paid you back well!  Step back and enjoy *look* of a de-cluttered, or cleaned-up and sparkling-clean area!  It does not have to be an entire room!  Just get over it!

Now, I do understand you Perfectionists will have a real challenge, in your minds, thinking about cleaning using this suggested method!  It's okay!  Take 3 long, slow, deep, relaxing breaths, now.  aahhh.  Now you feel better, don't you?  😋
Have a happy, less stressful day and week!

**In my next post, I will share a few, simple tips for reviving your body, during breaks at your place where you *serve* those who pay you, or after you leave & go home.  Stay alert!  Be blessed!  Shalom!
