crazy, weird, UNIQUE!



That Josh Shipp guy is purdy smart.  He’s a funny guy too, but this right here is no joke.  It’s so important that we care for our children, our students.  If we don’t show them God’s love and show them that people really do care for them, they are going to be lost.  Lost…lost not only in this world, but in the next.  I was to SCREAM this quote.  Come on people…DO THIS!


Today’s Quotes





I’ve been working on cleaning OUT my phone storage for the last hour or so.  Geez!

I deleted all my photos,

worked on cleaning out apps I never ever use anymore OR might have never used,

deleted ringtones, all my music and then went on to delete all text messages.

AND wiped out the voice messages I had saved for some reason.  I kept two–one from a former student telling me about making first chair in the all-state band and my older son telling me how great I am.  Awww.

I sure do hold on to things!  Usually I just blame this on the ART TEACHER ME.  Most all art teachers are hoarders.  Not nasty gross hoarders who keep snot rags or half eaten french fries.  We keep stuff we think someday may be able to be turned into cooler stuff. ha!  I know, sounds just as crazy, but still, not gross.

I still don’t have enough room to do the update on my phone!  I don’t even have the smallest gb phone either…UG!  I have no idea what else to delete.  I went to my history in the search engine and deleted that even.  I found voice memos I had created and deleted it.  I am NOT going to delete my BEJEWELED!  hehe!  I am not a gamer at all, but Bejeweled and I have been together since I got my first ipod in 2009.

STORAGE is sometimes limited like I’m trying to work on now.

What all do you have stored?  (HOARDED?)

Do you STORE? or HOARD?

Buckets of Love

Learned about this cool project tonight called BUCKETS OF LOVE. Click on not to go check it out.
Just another way to help others.
That’s why we are here, RIGHT?

I’ve been teaching from James 3 the last couple of weeks.  I’m just stuck on it.  I keep thinking about it and hearing OTHER scripture that supports it.  Proverbs talks about it…

Telling lies about others is as harmful as hitting them with an ax, wounding them with a sword, or shooting them with a sharp arrow. Prov. 25:18 

It’s comparing lying about another to murder.  I guess you might not MURDER someone if you hit them with a ax, sword or arrow, but then again, you might.  Either way, lying about others is BAD.  We know this.  It’s a truth that we should know very well, but we still do it.  Gossip is the ugly UNTRUTH and sometimes something we get sucked into before we know it.

I’ve already shared this in a blog, but as I said, things just keep coming up about it.

It’s in the commandments:

“You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.” -Exodus 20:16

I am not sure why it just keeps coming up.  Maybe I need to shut my lips more!  HA!  I’m pretty sure I need to do that.  My mouth gets me in trouble sometimes.  I like to think it also does great things as well, but as it says in James—

(9-10)  With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.

We can’t be committed to doing both.  We need to PRAISE OUR LORD AND FATHER and not curse those HE has made.  We need to use our words for God.   We should allow Him to use our mouths to lead others to Him.  We should encourage, praise, lift up, build and help others using our words as well as our actions.  I know it’s better to DO than talk, but we use both words and actions all the time—WE NEED TO USE THEM for good, not bad.

Words and actions are both powers we have…

I pray we can all use our powers for good.


Here are some other verses about the power of our words:

Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.

Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

Matthew 15:18 But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person.

Proverbs 12:18 There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Matthew 12:36 I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak,

Proverbs 16:24 Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.

Colossians 3:8 But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth.

Matthew 12:37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.
