GOD IS OUR REFUGE

I think we all have times when it seems that our world has been turned topsy-turvy. I think we all have times when we aren’t quite sure which way to go or how best to proceed… We might cry out to God and wonder where He has gone or why He is letting things be […]

Battle against INSECURITY?

Long ago, I erected an idol in my mind of the Christian Woman. The Christian Woman found the time to blow-dry her hair before church. She and her childhood sweetheart and their well behaved brood of children arrived each Sunday with their clothes right side in and their shoes on the right feet. She taught Sunday school and sipped tea at ladies’ functions. She found the time to cart casseroles to potlucks, kiddos to soccer practice, and donations to the food-bank in her mini-van.

Illusions

Illusions, wrongly perceived or interpreted by the senses, deceptive appearance or impression. A false idea or belief. You cant keep hanging onto who or what has already left or what’s gone, and you cant keep waiting on who or what, that was never on their or its way. Let go of all Illusions. Let go.

The Greatest Enemy of knowledge is not Ignorance, it is the illusion of Knowledge.

Your only Obligation in any Lifetime is to be True to Yourself.

All Human Unhappiness comes from not Facing Reality exactly as it is.

WOULD WE EAT AT THE SAME TABLE?

Conversation with Kids?!

Making conversations with kids can be awkward but absolutely lovely, and A Hilariously fun thing to do.  Make conversations with Kids. Talking to kids nowadays can be very hard. Especially if you do not have children of your own.   A great start, Be available to make conversation with them. Kids don’t usually make plans to have conversations with us Adults, We have to be available to them in order to stimulate conversation with the child. If we’re with them, we’re bound to hear what they have to say.   Children are very immediate, when it comes to their feelings & emotions, When a child wants to talk, make yourself available. Create space to have conversations with them, prepare yourself. Resist the urge to correct the child in the conversation, if a child is telling you something inaccurate, ask the child what does he or she thinks happened, so that way, they can express their thoughts. Draw out their curiosity, rather then forcing on them, an accurate explanation. You can fact check afterwards, also be interested and into what their into, their likes and dislikes. Watch something together with the child, and ask open ended questions, relating to kids nowadays is a challenge, these few techniques can apply to help engage a conversation with 4-15 year olds. Especially for Adults who have no clue or possibly no children and not one solid idea on how to have a Kid conversation. Have fun, Kids are awesome!
