He's So Sweet!


Jonathan picked me up from work on Tuesday night and on the way home he told me that he hadn't done any house work and he was sorry that I was going to come home to such a messy house. I told him not to worry about it and that I was happy to see him and be home! When we got home guess what I found? Sunshine streaming in to a not only  clean house, but a beautifully rearranged living room, dinning room and office! The couch was moved to another spot in the living room. It had been in front of the sliding glass door which blocked all the sun. So now we get a lot more sunshine in our small little flat. The Kitchen was also very squeaky clean. 

 He made me sit down on the living room couch and he prepared me my tea. (I have all my tea items in my little Hutch) It was so cute watching him look for my tea things in the little hutch and placing my tea cups and other items on the silver tray. I can say that I have been extremely spoilt by my sweet Darling. 
P.S. Sorry about the mushy stuff but I can't help it. He is just too adorable!!!!

Poor Guy



Thanks everyone for the sweet comments! I'm sorry it has taken me so long to post about my new job! I have been enjoying it very much! Unfortunately the little boy that I watch has been very sick. My first day he was so sick. He threw up 4 times which is very uncommon for him. He got sick from being at day care the last week before I was hired. He had never been sick before this. He has been only eating liquids because he hasn't been able to keep solid food down. Poor guy, I feel so bad for him because he just cries and cries because he's hungry but when he eats he loses it. This was his last day on liquids. Besides all the sickness, I have been really blessed with this sweet family! They are so kind to me and appreciate me more than I deserve. The Lord is so good!!!

Nanny Position Filled!!



You might be wondering if I got that nanny job I posted about the other day. Well, I have to say, I start Monday morning! I'm so excited about it! The only thing is that it might be temporary, their last nanny had had an accident and they hired me on until she is better. The mother did ask me if I was interested to stay on permanent and I said yes. So I'm praying that they will keep me on. I told the mother during my interview that I was a christian and she seemed to like it. I'm sure I would like to hear if the person I'm looking to hire to watch my child is a christian or not.

Saturday Morning!!!


Jonathan and I went garage sailing this morning! We went kinda late, but we still got some steals! I found this sweet little picture for 2 dollars!
I got these bottles for a dollar each. I love the pink depression glass one. It is really old! They had a lot of depression glass bottles but this was the only one with a lid. It looks really vintage I think!! Now I have to decide what I'm going to do with them. Any Suggestions?  

Hunting For Clothes

Nanny Job!!!


I think I got a job! I had a interview with this family today!! They have an 11 month old little boy. The mother is a Doctor and works part time! Its about 30 hours a week which makes the schedule a three day a week job which I love! The pay is really good as well! I will hopefully hear back from them tonight or tomorrow! I hope I get it! It would be so wonderful to work for just one child (a baby) instead of my last job which was 4!!! I'll update and let you know what happens!

Talk About Being Vulnerable!!!!


You wouldn't believe what happened to me and John last night! I woke up with a small little pinch on my arm that started to tingle and sting! I woke John up telling him that my arm hurt and I wanted him to turn on the light. He turned on the light and told me his eye lid hurt. I knew we had been stung by something and I was afraid it was a scorpion. We turned all the pillows over and then the sheets, we pulled the mattresses off the bed frame and what do you know, a yellow baby scorpion!!!! I wish it was a bad dream, it wasn't! I grabbed something to smash it with, sense the scorpion was next to me. Then John threw a shoe at me to grind it in the floor. I was so grossed out. Of course we couldn't sleep in the bedroom because we feared there would be more. My mom had told us awhile ago that if we ever got stung by a scorpion to put vinegar on directly. John looked up scorpion bites on the internet. The deadly scorpions are the black ones which are rare in Arizona. We are going to call the pest control!!!! John and I are going to pray before we go to bed tonight! - Oh, and by the way, the pain/tingling lasted for over 12 hrs!

Tidbits Of Dinesh D'souza


I copied and pasted  from Dinesh D'souza's blog again! Here is some really good, healthy reading for everyone!!!

The real problem with Darwinism in the public school classroom is that it is often taught in an atheist way. Textbooks by biologists like William Provine and Richard Dawkins routinely assert that evolution has done away with the need for God. The claim is that chance and natural selection have demonstrated that we can have design--or the appearance of design--without a designer. In this sense Darwinism becomes propaganda for atheism.
Typically evangelical Christians seek to counter this atheism by trying to expose the flaws in the Darwinian account of evolution. This explains the appeal of "creation science" and the "intelligent design" (ID) movement. These critiques, however, have not made any headway in the scientific community and they have also failed whenever they have been tried in the courts. Fortunately there is a better way.

Consider this: the First Amendment to the Constitution prohibits public schools from teaching or promoting atheism in any way. How do I know this? Well, the religion clauses of the First Amendment protect the "free exercise" of religion and at the same time forbid the "establishment" of religion. Courts have routinely held that the free exercise clause protects not only religious beliefs but also the absence of religious beliefs. If you are fired from your government job because you are an atheist, your First Amendment rights have been violated. In other words, the term "religion" means not only "religion" but also "atheism."
Yet if the free exercise clause defines religion in a way that includes atheism, then the no-establishment clause must define religion in the same way. So the agencies of government are prohibited from "establishing" not only religion but also atheism. This means that just as a public school teacher cannot advocate Christianity or hand out Bibles to his students, so too public school textbooks and science teachers cannot advocate atheism.
I'd like to see Christian legal groups suing school districts for promoting atheism in the biology classroom. No need to produce creationist or ID critiques of Darwinism. All that is necessary is to parade the atheist claims that have made their way into the biology textbooks and biology lectures. The issue isn't the scientific inadequacy of evolution but the way in which it is being used to undermine religious belief and promote unbelief. If the case can be made that atheism is being advocated in any way, then the textbooks would have to be rewritten and classroom presentations changed to remove the offending material. Schools would be on notice that they cannot use scientific facts to draw metaphysical conclusions in favor of atheism.
In this way Darwinism in the public schools would no longer be a threat to religion in general or Christianity in particular.

Sweet Sisters

Martin Luther King


Here is a post that I copied and pasted  written by Dinesh D'Souza whom I highly respect and enjoy! I encourage everyone who passes by to please stop and read! I thought I would post it from his blog because I thought what he has to say should be read by all my blogging friends!

.............When Martin Luther King Really Died

Posted Apr 4th 2008 12:03PM by Dinesh D'Souza
Filed under: History, Controversy, Race Relations

When did Martin Luther King die? It's been four decades since that event, but let's ask the question in its broadest light. Reflections on King's death are focusing on what he accomplished. Basically King led the movement to secure legal equality for African Americans and, by extension, all Americans. As a nonwhite immigrant I have benefited from the civil rights movement, and have never forgotten my debt to King. Without him America would have had Brown v. Board of Education but not the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or the Voting Rights Act or the Fair Housing Bill. King accomplished a lot.
But he failed in one key respect. King's dream was for America to become a color-blind society where we are judged not by the hue of our skin but by the content of our character. A telling phrase: many conservatives celebrate King's concept of a merit-based society. Yet King didn't say we should be judged by our merits; he said we should be judged according to character.
What happened to King's idea of a color-blind America? It has been stifled not by the Ku Klux Klan or the Southern segregationists. Remarkably it has been abandoned by the very civil rights activists who fought alongside King. Note that the greatest African American leaders, from Frederick Douglass to Booker T. Washington to Martin Luther King, argued for a century that blacks wanted nothing more than to be treated equally under the law. Yet almost immediately after this legal equality was secured, through King's leadership, the NAACP and the other civil rights groups gave up on the idea of color-blindness and began to demand race and ethnic preferences.
The new civil rights orthodoxy was expressed in Cornel West's book Race Matters. West's argument is that it is naive to have color-blind laws and policies in a society where race till matters. Since race matters, we have to institutionalize race as the basis of public policy. Since race matters, we no alternative than to fight racial discrimination with state-sponsored racial discrimination.
The great irony, of course, is that when you institutionalize race in order to combat racism, you move further and further away from the ideal of a society where race ceases to count. First the civil rights movement fought for decades to get race out of university admissions, job hiring and government contracts; then after King's death, it fought to put race back. Yes, the argument was that "benign discrimination" is better than "invidious discrimination," although let us remember that all discrimination is benign to the one who benefits from it, and invidious to the one who pays for it.
King had his flaws, but in an age of racial charlatans like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Jeremiah Wright, Americans of goodwill continue to wonder: where are you now, Martin Luther King? Have we lost your kind forever? Perhaps the best way to celebrate King's legacy is to recall and attempt to restore the color-blind ideal that he fought and died for.
Martin Luther King was gunned down on the balcony of his hotel 40 years ago. But he really died when his dream of a color-blind society was killed by his own followers.


My Silly Little Goose


I miss my Goose! Her name was Goosie Goose! I gave her away before I got married last year. I bought her in the spring time when they have the little chicks and baby ducks for sale at Big R. I couldn't resist the little peeper. She was a very good goose until she started chasing our dogs and cats. Then she started getting in my mom's vegetable garden. I started putting her in her pin more and more. A little while latter I bought her a plastic kid pool that they sell at Walmart, She loved it. She bathed every hour, dunking her beautiful neck in the water. I loved to watch her from the window, bathing, trimming our front lawn, chasing grass hoppers. Latter she started visiting our neighbor who lives down the road. He called me one day informing me that my goose had bitten his dog. He was really nice about it but I knew I had to get rid of her. So I started looking around for someone who could take my little pet.  I couldn't find any one who wanted her. My sister Olga and I tried taking her to the park in town and leaving her at the city pond, that was one of the most difficult 2 hours I have spent in my life. She honked and honked at us following us all over the park not wanting us to leave her. My sister and I had a hard time fighting back tears. It started raining and I knew I couldn't just leave my little friend all alone in a big loud city, so of course I took her back  home with me again. She was back to her same self again, honking, bathing, eating up all our veggies, biting the dogs and cats. She couldn't help but be a goose!!! I started praying that the Lord would find me a home for her. One day I was driving down the road with a friend of mine and we were discussing the matter, as we passed this little sweet house with a little pond of ducks and geese! I knew it was the Lord, I turned around and we knocked on the front door! It turns out the gentleman who lived there was a retired veterinarian who loved and understood ducks and geese! He agreed to take my goose and provide a happy little goose home for her!! I know this is a little silly story but I know the Lord heard my prayer and He cares so much for me that He would even provide a lush, gorgeous, safe little home for my goose! How much more He must care for us! Even though it was a goose and not a sparrow this story makes me remember this verse in Matthew:
Matthew 10:29-31 (New International Version)
29Are not two sparrows sold for a penny[a]? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. 30And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31So 
don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Couches Part 3

Now this is my kind of couch! I would love to own a couch like this!! I don't know if this would be considered a couch. More of a love seat, or lounge. I just need to see if Jonathan would like it. I guess I would have to come up with some money also. Hmmm Marie, should have thought of that before you started looking at furniture silly!!!

Couches Part 2


I don't know how much I like this couch. I like the size, I just don't know about the flowers. It is cute but not my favorite.

Couches Part 1

  I have been looking at a lot of furniture lately and I'm trying to get an idea of what I like and what goes together. I'm not sure how much I like this couch. I like the size but not the material. I love the black and white pictures behind the couch. 
Please stay tuned to see what else I find!
