Born to Die

On the night Christ was born
Just before the break of morn,
As the stars in the sky were fading,
O’er the place where He lay,
Fell a shadow cold and gray
Of a cross that would humble a King.

Chorus

      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
      Jesus suffered my sin to forgive;
      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
    He was wounded that I might live.

Jesus knew when He came
He would suffer in shame,
He could feel ev’ry pain and sorrow.
But He left Paradise,
With His blood He paid the price –
My redemption to Jesus I owe.

Chorus

      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
      Jesus suffered my sin to forgive;
      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
    He was wounded that I might live.

From His throne Jesus came,
Laid aside Heaven’s fame
In exchange for the cross of Calv’ry;
For my gain suffered loss,
For my sin He bore the cross –
He was wounded and I was set free.

Chorus

      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
      Jesus suffered my sin to forgive;
      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
    He was wounded that I might live.

Dearest Lord, evermore
May Thy cross I adore
As I follow the path to Calv’ry;
Of Thy death I partake,
My ambition I forsake –
All my will I surrender to Thee.

Chorus

      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
      Jesus suffered my sin to forgive;
      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
    He was wounded that I might live.

Born to Die

We were sitting in church and we sang this song. Born to Die. Ron Hamiliton is the writer of said song.
While we were singing, the words just “got to me”

Seriously, we were sitting there singing and I wanted to just bawl.  I just can not imagine giving birth to my child so that he could just die. Yet, Mary did. She followed God. She gave birth to Jesus knowing that this child was going to be something “special”. She could have said no, I am choosing to not follow God. I mean come on, how many times have we said no to God when he has asked us or called us to do something? I have. I will raise my hand for that. I rather not, but I want to be honest.

On the night Christ was born
Just before the break of morn,
As the stars in the sky were fading,
O’er the place where He lay,
Fell a shadow cold and gray
Of a cross that would humble a King.

Chorus

      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
      Jesus suffered my sin to forgive;
      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
    He was wounded that I might live.

Jesus knew when He came
He would suffer in shame,
He could feel ev’ry pain and sorrow.
But He left Paradise,
With His blood He paid the price –
My redemption to Jesus I owe.

Chorus

      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
      Jesus suffered my sin to forgive;
      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
    He was wounded that I might live.

From His throne Jesus came,
Laid aside Heaven’s fame
In exchange for the cross of Calv’ry;
For my gain suffered loss,
For my sin He bore the cross –
He was wounded and I was set free.

Chorus

      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
      Jesus suffered my sin to forgive;
      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
    He was wounded that I might live.

Dearest Lord, evermore
May Thy cross I adore
As I follow the path to Calv’ry;
Of Thy death I partake,
My ambition I forsake –
All my will I surrender to Thee.

Chorus

      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
      Jesus suffered my sin to forgive;
      Born to die upon Calv’ry,
      He was wounded that I might live.

Just a Day

Today is just a day. Yesterday, was just a day. But, we had a houseful of beautiful and precious children. I had 9 here, yes, 9 in my small home. But it was such a blessing! We still have an extra two here. Just s day beings so much sunny thoughts in a grey, and dreary, rainy day outside. But inside, I have 6 children here playing. I have some Christmas music playing. I have a child painting nails, one is strumming the guitar why her toes are getting painted. One that is playing with the animals. I have two playing a video game and one is learning to spike his hair by his sister who is paining the above nails.

No one is arguing, no one is crying, and other than laughter, all I hear are the yaps of the dogs having fun. Meanwhile., I am doing dishes, figuring out how I plan on making the chicken I pulled out for dinner. I have the washer full of clothes and the dryer tumbling full of my babies clothing. My husband just went off to work, but before heading out the door, he stopped to kiss my lips.

Yes, I have an awesome life. My day is going awesome as well. I can not ask for a better life. God has already given me more that what I deserve.

I Will Survive

You know that feeling, when the kids seem like they are behind in school.

Or, you are crabby because of all the work that you have yet to grade.

Or, the printer is out of ink and you keep forgetting to pick some up from the store to do the printing that needs to be done so your kids can do schoolwork.

You will survive.

Homeschooling my children is one of the most rewarding experience I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing.  Not only that, I am learning more about what I should have learned in school but did not.

Not having someone else raise my children has many many benefits. One of the main benefits is that no one else has an influence on your child that you do not want on them.

I have had children in the public school system, in fact, 3 of my children have been in, and one is still in the system. I want to bring him back home. We are praying on that now in fact.

If you are new at homeschooling and are feeling a bit overwhelmed, or an oldie at homeschooling but wondering if you can handle another day, here ya go!

Thoughts on Teen Pregnancy

I have a few thoughts on teen pregnancy.

My daughter Casey is pregnant. Yes.

But, does that mean it is the end of the world for her? That she is hellbound? That her baby is going to be born into being on Welfare its whole life. Does this mean that her wee one will also be a parent at the tender age of 16?

Well, let’s take the first question. Is it the end of the world? Nope. Not at all. Sure, she wants to be a nurse and this COULD hinder it. But, why should it? She has a support system here at home. I got the message from dh last night that he does not see me going back to work at all ( clapping) So, if Casey chooses to remain at home, she will have a free babysitter. What I mean by remaining at home is past the age of 18. I will watch her child while she is in school and at work. Yes, she has to work some. I highly doubt she will get support from the father of this baby. That is a whole other story, and one I probably will not get into here.

Next question: Is she hellbound? I do not believe she is. She has her own personal salvation testimony and she would be glad to give it! Sure she committed a sin, but so didn’t you when you did not give back the pen to the check out clerk at the grocery store. Oh, that was me, my bad sorry.
She has to and I am not sure if she has gone to our Father or not to ask for forgivness but she has asked of it from her dad and I. We have chosen to forgive her, since we also know that the Lord almost commands it does he not?
We love our daughter and we want the best for her.

Will she be on welfare the rest of her life? I hope not, none of us want our children to be on welfare. It is not a great system to be on. Casey does have a good head on her shoulders and with perseverance and faith she can accomplish her dream of becoming a nurse. Will it be easy? Nope. But, if she allows us to help her and follow our rules while living under our roof she should have no problems with getting her education.

Only time will tell her child will become a parent. Much to early to answer that question doncha’ think? God is awesome. We all have our own free will. And, we all make our own choices. But, that does not mean that Casey will stear her child wrong. She made the choice to have relations. God have her/us this baby to raise up. We will do our best. But we will fail.

I am happy for this baby to be coming into our lives.
