Perfection doesn't exist but perfect moments do

Authored by worknmom on Sun, Dec 17 2006 - 04:22 PM

When it comes to me and my actions, I am a perfectionist. I think I have to be the best at everything. A 98 isn't good enough. I want the 100. I am very tolerant of other people. It is like I don't expect them to be perfect only me. I often tell the married women that work for me, that they shouldn't get stressed out, because they just cannot ...

Broken Bones

Authored by worknmom on Wed, Nov 29 2006 - 05:06 PM

This has been a crazy few days.  My 11 year old son broke his collarbone the day before Thanksgiving.  He and his Dad were riding dirt bikes.  He was doing a little "jumping" and had a flat tire, but did not realize it.  When he landed, he lost control and the bike kind of "threw" him over the handle bars.  He said, "I saw ...

Why I am Thankful for Backyard Ball!

Authored by worknmom on Thu, Nov 23 2006 - 07:16 AM

I looked out of the kitchen window and smiled.  There on my lawn the most important event of the day was happening--a serious game of backyard ball! HOme plate was a patch of dirt in the grass--perfect for sliding in and making it look really good.  1st base was a tree stump, 2nd base was an old car mat and 3rd base was one of my good flower pots-- ...

I had dental surgery yesterday.  No fun!  The pain medicine had me in a rather restless sleep last night, but it turned out to be a good thing as during the night God spoke to me several times.  Earlier in the evening, I had a long conversation with my daughter.  She is discouraged because of her grades and she doesn't feel like she is good at ...

Authored by worknmom on Sun, Nov 19 2006 - 09:08 AM

I am a "fixer"--that is probably not even a real word, but in my southern slang it means that I always try to solve whatever problem, conflict or confusion that is at hand and make things right. I am a perfectionist that is hard on myself but not so much on others.  I get discouraged when I cannot "figure" it out.  I'm always ...

Working Mothers

Authored by worknmom on Sat, Nov 18 2006 - 03:43 PM

Working Mother. What a joke. We need a better name. I've never known a Mom in my life that didn't work! "Career Mom". That does not do it for me either. I view a career as a long-term committment with an employer--what presents a more long-term committment than motherhood! "Works outside the home"--amusing.  Obviously the ...

Do You Recognize Him?

Authored by worknmom on Sat, Mar 22 2008 - 07:27 AM

Can you just imagine how the disciples and followers of Jesus felt after watching Jesus die on the cross?  Jesus, their precious Jesus, was gone.  Tortured, beaten, spit on, hung between to criminals.  He was Dead.  In a tomb, covered by a stone.  That was it--the end.  They were so sorrowful.  They thought He was going to be their King, their ...

Expect the Unexpected

Authored by worknmom on Tue, Oct 21 2008 - 08:07 PM

I didn't realize it had been quite so long since I have blogged.  Yet at the same time, it seems like forever ago!!   For a couple of years now, I have been praying for God to lead me out of the corporate world into a home-based business that I feel He gave my sister and I the idea for.  Most recently, that prayer had become more of a desperate ...

The Blazing Furnace and God our Hero

Authored by worknmom on Sat, May 03 2008 - 08:12 PM

If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it.  Daniel 3:17 NIVOften in our lives, we are thrown into a blazing furnace.  We become engulfed by fear, depression, addictions, anger, worry, financial burden, health issues or a multitude of other possibilities.   Like fire, these things are hot, uncomfortable ...

Big Shoes

Authored by worknmom on Sat, Nov 17 2007 - 06:35 AM

Here in the deep south or at least in my "neck of the woods", when someone has a lot of personal problems, we say they have "issues".  Quite a few years ago, the department I worked in seemed to have a lot more people with a lot more "issues" than the norm.  One of the ladies that worked with me would apparently go ...

Blind Curves and Beautiful Surroundings

Authored by worknmom on Sun, Nov 18 2007 - 06:53 AM

My son plays football and we have All-Star games in North Georgia this weekend.  Yesterday, as we were driving up to the games, I was in awe of the beauty of the changing leaves on the trees.  They were so gorgeous!  I saw the deepest burgundies and reds, bright orange, deep orange, bright yellow and a variety of colors in between.  I thought ...

I Am Nothing, Yet He Chose Me

Authored by worknmom on Thu, Jul 19 2007 - 04:53 PM

I am believe that most things in our life do not happen by accident.  God's hand is in it.  Last night, I was preparing for my evening devotional.  I was trying to decide what to read.  I started looking for a book I recently purchased, but couldn't find it anywhere!  I was perplexed and started looking in all the same places again.  I reached ...

He Held My Face in His Hands

Authored by worknmom on Sun, Nov 25 2007 - 05:18 PM

I am one of those people who wear the weight of the world on their shoulders.  I hate to see someone in pain--emotional or physical.  I hate to see someone sad.  But for me in goes beyond just the norm, I "feel" it with them.  I find it hard to release it and I worry.  I want so badly for there to be happiness and joy around me.  I want ...

Too Many Weeds

Authored by worknmom on Sat, May 24 2008 - 06:46 AM

Have you ever noticed how quickly a few weeds can multiple in your garden?  They seem to take over and try to choke the life out of your precious plants.  Sometimes, when the rains come, the weeds seem to grow twice as fast as the plants.  Sure, you try to pluck out the weeds, but it seems 2 others grow in the place of the one you removed.   It is ...

I hope to be back to my regular blogging soon.  I really, really miss it.  For today, I have another prayer request.....(actually 3).A teenage boy in our homeschool group died this week from injuries sustained from being struck by lightening.  I did not know him personally, but those who did say he was very special and very close to the Lord.  He ...

Right now we are out in what we call, the field.... for 30 days. No tents, though, so that's good. We have buildings to stay in out here. We are supposed to go back to base on or about Sept. 3. So, ...

I'm Back and in Need of Prayer

Authored by worknmom on Sun, Jun 29 2008 - 06:45 PM

I cannot believe it has been over a month since I've been able to BLOG!  The motherboard died on our computer.  While I don't know exactly what that means, I know it was a bad thing! I am grateful to be back on-line and will hopefully get a chance to catch up on everyone's blogs very soon.  I've missed the inspiration your words always provide me.  ...
