Mental Minuses

Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever recover all my mind.

  1. Between being crazy{the good kind!};
  1.  Motherhood“Momzheimers”-I think I saw this on Jenny’s Unremarkable Files????   But of course, I can’t find the post now.     sigh         And I’ve heard that insanity is  inherited-  you get it from your children!  😉   (See the numbers?? I can’t even get my numbered bullets to act right, much less my body, and brain chemistry!!)

slob, humor, blast from the past

  1. Alcoholism; We all know alcohol pickles stuff!!     That God, I was only an alcoholic for several years, then got sober, by the grace of God!     I would be full on mentally deficient of any brains at ALL, if I had kept that up for 20 more years!!     {Shout out to God, I’ve been delivered from alcohol, and sober for almost 24 years now!!}
  2. Thyroid fog; This is so real.    Many people are not aware, if they don’t have it.

  1.  and 4 nervous breakdowns; All related to teaching, which is why I’m disabled;

It’s a wonder I have ANY pieces left!!

And I do miss the pieces that are missing.      I’m still young enough to remember when they were all there, and how sharp I was!      In school, I had a very nearly photographic memory.      [So handy, for testing!! ]      In my freshmen year at SEC (now SEU), I knew all the names of my class mates, almost 200 of us.      Now, most of the film is missing, or just doesn’t develop!    Or, should I say the memory chip is faulty??

I loved playing word games, puns, alliterating, etc.    Oh sure, I still alliterate, but privately, when I can take up to days, or weeks to figure out the perfect phrase!!

Anyways, just thought I’d remind y’all that mental problems do exist, and they are affecting more people than you realize.

So, be kind, rewind, oops- sorry! rote memorization programming kicked in there!     Be kind to everyone, and smile.   I promise it doesn’t hurt, it’s free, and you just might make someone’s day!

God’s Gift

My friend, Elizabeth, from the Comfortable Coop, also wrote a wonderful Resurrection Sunday post, just like Cami’s, that I re-blogged yesterday.

 

http://thecomfortablecoop.com/2017/04/14/my-easter-to-do-list/

It reminded me once again, to give first place to Jesus, my Savior, always!!       Resurrection Sunday, (Easter), is to celebrate His resurrection from the dead!!   He gave His life on the cross, for our salvation, just because He loves us!!      Praise the Lord forever!

God’s not dead, He is alive!!     

slob, Jesus' empty tomb

Hosanna!

Patrick’s Page

This was my St Patrick’s Day post from 2015.        Wearing O’ the Green.

So, this year I thought I’d research it a tiny bit more.         Here’s what I learned.

From the website: http://www.christianitytoday.com/history/2008/august/real-st-patrick.html

slob, humor, St Patrick

The “Real St. Patrick”

“Patrick isn’t really a Saint with a capital S, having never been officially canonized by Rome. And Patrick couldn’t have driven the snakes out of Ireland because there were never any snakes there to begin with.”

“Though he was not solely responsible for converting the island, Patrick was quite successful. He made missionary journeys all over Ireland, and it soon became known as one of Europe’s Christian centers. This, of course, was very important to fifth-century Christians, for whom Ireland was one of the “ends of the earth.”

 

But, he DID use the shamrock to explain the Trinity, right??

Well, according to this website, no.     It was all just legends.

http://catholichotdish.com/the-pastors-page/saint-patrick-the-shamrock-and-the-trinity/

“There are several popular legends about how St. Patrick used the shamrock to explain the mystery of the Trinity.”

Being as how I wasn’t there, I am not gonna argue the point.      I do think it’s a great illustration!

Alright, now on to my St Patrick’s Day stuff.           You already saw my mantel.

slob, humor, St Pat's Day shelf   From Seven Seconds Scullery Scape.

Now, here’s my porch door, outside.   

slob, humor, door shamrocks             slob, humor, door shamrocks  Porch door inside.

   

                                  Front door, outside.                       Front door, inside.                                              

And I also put one on Vanronica’s window, PP’s side.    And immediately she said “Wheah’s baby _____(PPJr)’s??”         Bless her heart, for being so sweet to her baby sister!!         (Now, I gotta go take one down off the mantel, and tape it to the baby’s side!!)                                   

  Here’s some funny stuff I saw at the store.

I want these tights!!     Of course, I’d have to wear them on my arms…..                                       And the white fuzzy things are leg warmers!!!     LOL

Ok, so that’s all the green I got going on today.

Helping Hope

One of my friends,  Liz Suits, is a Compassionate Entrepeneur for Trades of Hope.   

slob, humor, Trades of Hope logo

They sponsor women around the world, and teach them trades.      Then, the women can support themselves, and their children, and save them from sex trafficking.       It’s a wonderful thing!!

Sis had a party, so of course, I had to get in on that action!!       LOOOOOVE parties!     Of any kind!

Here is my order:

Journal, and Lip balms.   slob, humor, Trades of Hope order

The Paisley Journal is made in India.         And the lip balms are made in Tennessee!

Slob, humor, journal from India, Trades of Hope                slob, humor, Trades of Hope lip balms                                            Both are packaged so prettily!      And I’m helping to save women in America!       And in India!  

As a pro-lifer, I think it’s important to do something to save the women, and children, not only the babies!!        Saving babies is of utmost importance-    since abortion is murder!     But, we also have to be concerned about what happens to them, AFTER we save them!          So, I did my little part, and plan to purchase more in the future.

God loves every one, men, women, children, teens, babies,and older people.   

EVERYONE!!

I challenge you if you can, please buy some stuff, to support life!      (I know they are a little pricey, but maybe you could give up a few treats??)

Oh wait, I almost forgot something:

slob, humor, Trades of Hope, lavender

How did they know?????

Trades of Hope- giving hope to families at home, and abroad.

 

Vital Valentine

slob, humor, happy Valentine's day           slob, humor, happy Valentine's day

I’ve already written about my Valuable Valentine, DD1!

(Yes, I’m gonna write in purple, red and pink today.    Please bear with me.  The pink are the links.)

Today, I’m talking about my Vital Valentine, Jesus!  slob, humor, heart

Most everyone is familiar with the verse, John 3:16.       (Even if you didn’t before, you probably recognize it now from Tim Tebow. )   

   slob, humor, Valentine                                                                           John 3:16.

Jesus is our vital Valentine.     He loves us so much, He died on the cross for our sin.

If you believe you are a sinner, repent, and ask Jesus to forgive you, you are now a child of God!

You will never be lonely again, because God the Father promises to never leave us or forsake us.      Hebrews 13:5

So, even if you have no human significant other, you will always be loved!!

slob, humor, double heartsslob, humor, double hearts

“The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”              Jeremiah 31:3

slob, humor, heart

If you prayed this prayer, please email me and tell me!!     I will be so happy to hear that!!     And, the angels in heaven will be having a party, to rejoice too!!

Luke 15:10 [Full Chapter]

“Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.”
If you have any questions about the Bible, email me those too!!       I love to hear from y’all, and would love to help you in anyway I can!
