Memory Monday: Favorite Aunt Days

He's still working on me
To make me what I ought to be
It took him just a week to make the moon and stars
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars
How loving and patient He must be
'Cause He's still workin' on me

I spent much of my time when I was little with my favorite Aunt. This day she was trying to explain to me how movie magic worked. I did not get it in the least, so she had me climb it her shirt and I was the small headed big person... We preformed quite an interesting story I laughed the whole way through while she did all the acting.

Memory Monday: My most memorable Dream

He's still working on me
To make me what I need to be
It took him just a week to make the moon and stars
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars
How loving and patient He must be
'Cause He's still workin' on me

I have always had some very strange dreams, my most memorable was when I was nine. I was sitting in the room of my dreams it had a blue ceiling, blue walls with animals and a green carpet. I was sitting with God (No I never actually got to see his face) and he was talking to me as a father would talk with his daughter (I don't remember all of the conversation.) He then told me that he was going to give me a test, but I was not to panic because he would be right there the entire time. 
So he dropped me in a very dark place I turned around to see a demon. He was very big and was slinging fiery darts at me I looked down to find myself in the Armor of God but for some odd reason it was a little loose, as though I had forgotten to tighten it . I fought the demon for five... maybe  six minutes with the knowledge that God was there and he was protecting me when I panicked and went down God then showed back up rebuked the devil and picked me up and comforted me. I will never for get what he told me. "V. why did you panic? I am your Father, you are my daughter, and I will never give you something I do not think you are ready for. Why did you not trust me?" 
At that point I woke up and cried. It is one thing when you read about Jesus rebuking someone else, but it is quite a different thing when he comes and rebukes you. I learned a lot that night and I promise you I will never ever forget that lesson.

Thankful Thursday: My brain

Today I am thankful for my brain. The brain is a amazing feet of desine and ingenuity. Humans have yet to be able to make computer able to match the wonders of the human brain.  
Our brain thinks, it registers our senses to something we can understand and cope with, in controls our body functions, and it gives instructions. That is why today I am thankful for my brain.

Quote Me Tuesday: A prince of Good Fellows

We have been learning about Scotland in school so this past week I read this book, A Prince of Good fellows. It is about King James V of Scotland. My favorite part was where he wrote a poem about being a beggar and when it got negative feedback on the content he decided to spend a week as a beggar. What a King!
 He was never afraid to take on a descise so he could gain the approval of his people for who he was and not because of his crown. He also was a very just and kind king. I give this book a five star rating I loved the reader who read this book for Librivox. he did a wonderful job at bringing this book to life.

Memory Monday: Horses

My first time to ride a horse in a field. 

He's still working on me
To make me what I need to be
It took him just a week to make the moon and stars
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars
How loving and patient He must be
'Cause He's still workin' on me

Horses have been my favorite animal since I was two years old.
 I saw my first horse at a fair of sorts. I was walking and Kendra was riding in the stroller. (I refused to ride and she refused to walk.) when we went into the farm animal house. I caught sight of that horse and because of picture books I knew exactly what that thing was. I took off at full speed. "HOSIE HOSIE." I babbled. Kendra (who had not really been paying attention) looked up saw this big thing jumped from the stroller grabbed the tail of my shirt. "No V. No, it will EAT you." 
(Now we had already been getting some pretty strange looks... now everyone was giving us strange looks.)

I have loved horses ever since

Thankful Thursday: My home

Today I am thankful for my home. It isn't much but it is a room over my head and a floor beneath my feet. I have a bed to sleep in and an area to call my own.
We have running water and air conditioning and heating.
There are no bugs or rodents.
The place is clean and if you consider Africa and many other places in the world, spacious.
There woods in the back yard for me to play in and explore.
I have a barn for me to keep my animals in.
There are trees for me to climb.

So that is why I am thankful for my home.

Thankful Thursday: Goats

Goats at the zoo

I had Goats for almost ten years. Goats were my life up until last year when they got in trouble and we had to get rid of them. Anyways here are why I am thankful for Goats.

  1. They are a challenge. 
  2. They are low maintenance creatures. unlike sheep which you have to constantly be watching, Goats know basically what is and is not healthy for them. it is commonly taught that Goats eat everything, but in truth they do not, Goats are very curious creatures and they taste everything, but they are also very smart and they will not eat anything poisonous unless they are starving. 
  3. They are very cute. 
  4. They have some of the best milk. 
  5. They are wonderful organic lawn mowers (And they don't even need any gas)

Quote Me Tuesday: Call of the wild.

Call of the wild is a fast pace adventure that was that was a lot of fun to read.

He had never seen dogs fight as these wolfish creatures fought, and his first experience taught him an taught him an unforgettable lesson. It is true, it was a vicarious experience, else he would not have lived to profit by it. Curly was the victim. They were camped near the log store, where she, in her friendly way, made advances to a husky dog the size of a full-grown wolf, though not half so large as she. There was no warning, only a leap in like a flash, a metallic clip of teeth, a leap out equally swift, and Curly's face was ripped open from eye to jaw. It was the wolf manner of fighting, to strike and leap away; but there was more to it than this. Thirty or forty huskies ran to the spot and surrounded the combatants in an intent and silent circle. Buck did not comprehend that silent intentness, nor the eager way with which they were licking their chops. Curly rushed her antagonist, who struck again and leaped aside. He met her next rush with his chest, in a peculiar fashion that tumbled her off her feet. She never regained them, This was what the onlooking huskies had waited for. They closed in upon her, snarling and yelping, and she was buried, screaming with agony, beneath the bristling mass of bodies. So sudden was it, and so unexpected, that Buck was taken aback. He saw Spitz run out his scarlet tongue in a way he had of laughing; and he saw Francois, swinging an ax, spring into the mess of dogs.

men with clubs were helping him to scatter them. It did not take long. Two minutes from the time Curly went down, the last of her assailants were clubbed off. But she lay there limp and lifeless in the bloody, trampled snow, almost literally torn to pieces, the swart half-breed standing over her and cursing horribly. The scene often came back to Buck to trouble him in his sleep. So that was the way. No fair play. Once down, that was the end of you. Well, he would see to it that he never went down. Spitz ran out his tongue and laughed again, and from that moment Buck hated him with a bitter and deathless hatred.

Memory Monday: Cowgirls of the library.

He's still working on me
To make me what I need to be
It took him just a week to make the moon and stars
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars
How loving and patient He must be
'Cause He's still workin' on me

From that day on Katie and I would meet every Wednesday at the library. Katie and I at that time were both going through a "Cowgirl of the library" stage so we hit it off rather well. Katie wore a pink cowgirl hat while I wore a black one (and still the librarians got us mixed up.) As the "Cowgirls of the Library" we had a job to do. We had to rope the cows that got loose, make sure nobody ran, and collect the skunks and put them back in the globe...(A stuffed one that had a zipper on the equator.) there were about a hundred cows and sixty skunks (Imaginary of course) that between visits would get out so we had to round them up again. The cows we had to look for books that were strewn on the floor, and for the skunks we had to follow our nose. 
Last year the library got rid of their globe and in doing so they got rid of the skunks and they also got rid of the Abicous so the cows disappeared. Even so I have some very fond memories of our skunk catching days. (Mostly from girls about our age who were terrified of those skunks.) LOL  

can you guess which one is which???
I am the one not smiling... (I was going through an non smiling phase.
