A Wake Up Call and Happy Thanksgiving

heartvalentine

My heart is heavy this morning with all the anger and hatred going on (not only in Ferguson) but in other areas of the country. I’m not going to comment either way on my thoughts on the decision that was made on the death of Michael Brown. The most important thing is what’s going on in reaction to it. I’ve never seen anything like this! 

I was glued to my TV the night before last from 5pm until about 2:30 yesterday morning. My heart goes out to the Brown family. What a painful loss. I could not even begin to imagine if that were my son! I watched in enormous disbelief, and all the while asking myself, “What is this cruel world coming to?” I know to an (end) in an hour that we do not suspect.  (Rapture) I truly believe that; as my mother taught me this, and the Bible tells us so. 

◄ Matthew 24: 43-45►

43″ But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.

44″For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.

45″Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time?…

What was I witnessing as I sat there in horror? Violence, hatred, and anger…towards who and what?! 

We ARE living in the last days, specifically how many, we do not know. 

I agree with many…violence  is certainly not the answer! Again, I’m not commenting. I’m just leaving you with a few more scriptures… 🙂

*** From a few apps on my iPad…

O God, grant me a heart full of tender mercy.

Dear Lord, keep my thoughts fixed on what is true, pure, excellent and worthy of praise.

Dear Lord, help me to stay focused on Your word rather than what my human eyes can see.

Dear Lord, may we never retaliate when we feel wronged, but help us to make choices that would show that we love.

Good Jesus, give me a deep love for Thee, that nothing may be too hard for me to bear from Thee.

Let’s keep the Brown family in our hearts and in our prayers! I can only imagine what their holidays  will be like. 😉

With that said, my wish for everyone of you…have a SAFE and Happy Thanksgiving, and please continue to pray for our country and everyone that was affected by the non-indictment of officer Wilson. Pray for peace! 🙂

In addition, lets keep praying for all the police officers that are putting their lives at stake and while they are doing their job to the best of their abilities.

Parenting Tips – Psychological Aspects Of Parenting

parenting

Of course, the following post accommodates Grandparents too. =)

Parenting is literally considered one of the toughest and most responsible jobs in the world. In fact, there is hardly anything more difficult, filled with doubt on every step of your child’s upbringing and more tiring than that.

What causes most of the troubles is that parents need to consider just so many things. To have a child means to live in a whole different world. What you should do, before introducing yourself to some special case advice, is to first consider the general tips, which many years of research have proven to be effective.

Let’s see some of them

Slow down – being a parent requires multitasking, but what you really need to take into consideration is how that can affect upbringing. By rushing everything with your child, you are removing a fine way for them to learn along the way.

Take cleaning routines for example – you will obviously want to have everything back in order asap, but by slowing down and explaining every step of the process to your child, why it has to be done and what is done exactly, you can cultivate a sense of understanding and set a positive example for them.

Attention – children require undivided attention. Nothing else is more important, and yet it is alarming how many parents do not fully devote themselves to parenting and activities that surround everyday life. Turn off your phone and use the time to talk with your kid, play and bond with them. They really need it.

Learn the language of your child – according to psychologists, many parents misinterpret child behavior and “language”. Children have their way of saying, articulating and expressing things and in learning how to distinguish among them lies to key to proper communication with the kid. Make sure not to forget that the next time you are faced with crying or other behavior, the cause for it might be different than what you thought.

Schedule and plan – a child feels safe and secure when they are able to predict the large and new world around them. What you should do is establish a schedule and stick to it whenever possible. This will help them feel secure and calm, which in turn will reflect positively in their behavior. It can also promote useful skills from young age, such as time management.

Let kids be themselves – clearly, you know what is best for your child, no doubt about that. But sometimes it can could have very positive impact on them when give them the option to choose.

For example, you can let them pick the color of their toothbrush. This will in fact encourage them to regularly brush their teeth, as they had a role in the process.


Another example: you can ask them to handpick the few vegetables you need for dinner. Decision-making is an important trait kids need to develop as early as possible. Be the person that helps this process.

Nothing else compares to parenting. It can be hard and challenging, but also a unique experience to watching your child become a grown up in front of your eyes and with your help.
