Polka Dots for everyone

9 Thou will make a court for the tabernacle. For the south side the wall will be curtains of fine twined linen of an hundred and fifty feet long for one side.

10 And the twenty support pillars and their twenty bases will be of brass. The hooks of the pillars and their pegs will be of silver.

The "fence posts" are to be held together with brass and silver.

From

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 

19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 

20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 

21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

18 For I know that the things we suffer right now are not comparable to the glory which He will reveal to us later.

19 All of creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the children of God. 

20 For the creation was put under the curse, lost its purpose, not because it wanted to, but because of Him who has also given hope,

? recorded steps yesterday. Didn't wear the phone/

Well, a lot has happened for not actually doing anything.

We were supposed to leave for our camping trip Friday night, but Friday morning Joshua (who had been running a fever for the last couple days) woke up with polka dots. Chicken Pox.

So much for camping.

A little research says there is a chance Hubby and I are carriers (since we have had CP before and it's latent in our systems, just waiting to be activated), and there is no way in the world we want to spread this to the church, so we stayed home yesterday. 5 of our kids who are in no way showing symptoms went. My oldest who is just now feeling back on her feet from Shingles and my 7th child (Jackie-13yo) stayed home. Jackie had a headache and just didn't feel good.

The the car the kids took only had 5 seats anyway. (#2, Jim 23yo, was off training to fight wild fires)

Well, last night Jackie came to me with a large, painful lump behind her ear. By the time I was done researching that, she had about three pox started (painful lumps behind the ear signify swollen lymph nodes, meaning she "has a cold.") So, 2 down with Polka Dots, and Hubby was running a fever yesterday. Looks like it's going to be an "interesting week."

And what about the CP vaccination?

When I first became a parent I was very much for vaxing for anything possible. I also realized that as a stay at home mom I was the true "first responder" for any and all accidents or illnesses. So I set about educating myself on how to take care of any minor illnesses or injuries.

The more research I did, the more I ran across anti-vax information.

And the more anti-vax info I read, the more convinced I became that vaccines weren't all they were said to be. The science just isn't actually there, like we are told it is.

What with all the allergies we have to deal with (already messed up immune systems), and all the possible negative side affects of the vaxes, I decided to quit vaccinating my kids. By that time the oldest 5 were fully vaxed, the next 2 were partially vaxed, and the youngest two have had none.

(Most of these diseases there are vaxes for are actually very mild illnesses in the grand scheme of things, especially in healthy, well nourished, children. They really are just "the polka dotted flu." Oh, the child is miserable, of course. But I would much rather my child be miserable for a couple of weeks than have type 1 diabetes, more severe allergies than they already do, asthma, or any of the other "modern" diseases that have been on the upswing only since vaxes were introduced; MS, Lupus, Fibro myalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer [we now know for a fact the original Polio vaccine was contaminated with a virus that caused cancer. Polio is, in healthy children who are not given aspirin, a month long bad cough. It was the bad interaction between aspirin and Polio that caused the need for the iron lungs, not Polio alone. My mother and her brother who dies of cancer 20 months of so before she did, both received this vaccine], Autism [a major scientist from the 2004 "vaxes don't cause Autism" study was recorded on hidden video admitting that they lied. The study actually showed a 300% increase in Autism in association with the MMR vaccine.], or many others [did you know there is some evidence that obesity and heart disease are both caused by viruses? Meaning the immune system is malfunctioning not kicking these bugs out.]. All of these diseases are in some way malfunctions of the immune system.)

So how the population in the house stands is:


  • Hubby, #1, and I have all had CP (me when I was pregnant with #2. Talk about about miserable!)
  • #1 has now had Shingles (official medical sites say you only get this once, but eyewitnesses say otherwise :-(    )
  • #2-5 vaxed against CP, but #3 was very sick with a fever about 5 weeks ago. CP without the spots? Do the vaccines really just keep the primary symptom from displaying? How do you tell the difference between spotless CP and the flu? (I have read eye witnesses who have had times of unvaxed family members getting a "childhood" disease and the vaxed members having the exact same symptoms but without the signature symptom, i.e. spots)
  • #6-7 partially vaxed, #7 polka dotted.
  • #8 mildly sick about 4 weeks ago, including a fever, but going strong right now. Spotless CP or just the flue?
  • #9 acting like his fever is gone this morning (and it was last night, so it evidently hasn't come back). The spots are going away. 
So, how many will get polka dotted? How many will get the "flu"? How many will not get sick at all? 

And what about #2? I was 5 weeks pregnant with him when I had them, so did he get CP before he was born? Plus, he was vaxed for them. So where does he stand? 

We shall see!

Meanwhile, today is #6 (Jennifer-15yo) birthday! Yeah! We always take a day off school for a birthday. So maybe I can catch up on some stuff.





To Do:
  • Take Jennifer out for her birthday
  • all the normal chores
  • finish setting up the newsletters for the blogs I am doing
  • do a detailed inventory of my Lilla Rose stuff. (I have decided that I need to go back to a detailed inventory to better protect myself from accusations of credit card fraud)
  • switch my son's phone
  • finish prepping the beds for planting
  • list things with craigslist

Tuh Done (what I've finished for the week):

  • Pull music for worship service
  • water my trees
  • make the puppy gates
  • Set up loyalty cards for BeST Clips 

5 Habits That Changed My Life In 2018

NO MORE FRIENDS, NO MORE WALKS, NO MORE HAPPINESS
The Bible says to abstain from the very appearance of evil. This is not a "What will the neighbors think?" kind of command, but, abstaining fro the appearance of evil usually keeps you out of the temptation to fall into evil. Don't know why this author didn't use this scripture, but otherwise, good article. 


Flylady often blames our mothers for why we don't dust, but I disagree. My mother never made me dust, much less "dust the right way," (move everything off, wipe the shelf down, put everything back after cleaning it). I think "dusting the right way" is just unpleasant work (like cleaning a toilet). No one enjoys it by the nature of being human. I do agree using the feather duster is fun, though. It makes the job much better. Oh, it doesn't get all the dust and what it does get a good deal is just wiped off the shelf onto the floor. But, duuhhh, dust first, then vacuum up what you knocked off. So much nicer. Not perfect, but nicer.

For my Daily routines, see the sidebar.

Monthly Habit we are building:

Moving for 10 minutes a day

I try to walk around the block everyday we have school. That takes 25 minutes (half of it is up hill, so slow). I need to find a way to get my moving in on non-school days.

Weekly zone focus:  

Master Bedroom
(You know, my "moods to clean" run about a week behind Flylady's schedule. I think the week of reading about doing a zone makes me want to tackle it. I may just set my zones to be a week behind hers and work with it instead of trying to focus on what she says.)
(This is the zone we are tackling all our monthly and less often chores in this week)

Today's Meals:

  • SOS
  • Jenn and I are going out to lunch
  • Roast

FlyLady Daily Mission

  • Clean under the Master Bed (I have drawers under mine and I happen to know none of them need cleaning. We have only had this bed a couple months, so nothing has been in there very long. I will open each one to refresh my memory on what's in there, but I doubt I need to actually do anything.)

Tami's assignments (Tami is a homeschooling mom of 6 who is a partner of FlyLady):

  • Monday - Declutter Bathroom Counters and Wipe Down
    27 Fling Boogie anywhere in the house (I'm hoping to get to the storage)

    Tuesday - Shine the Tub or Shower
    Hot Spot Fire Drill - Declutter those Flat Surfaces

    Wednesday - Declutter Items from the Medicine Cabinet
    Declutter 1 other area

    Thursday - Check Bathroom Supplies
    Declutter 1 other area

    Friday - Mop the Bathroom
    Declutter 1 other area

    Set your timers and then take a break when it goes off!
     My version that fits my house

"Do it Now."


"To take the first step in faith, you don't have to see the whole staircase: just take the first step." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This applies to a clean house, too.

"Anything worth doing is worth doing Imperfectly" - Flylady

"Baby Steps."

"You can do anything for 15 minutes." 

"You are not behind. Just jump in where you are."

"Your house didn't get this way overnight. It won't get under control in a day. It takes time."


How about you? What's on your list today?

Do you use a feather duster? Do you like it? 


Have a great day!

1 And He said to Moses, “Come up to the I Am, thou, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, and worship from a distance.”

God now calls for all the leaders of Israel to come up the mountain to worship Him.

2 “And Moses alone shall come near the I AM, but the others will not come near, neither shall the people go up with him.”

Only Moses was to come close to God. The others were to stay a distance away.

9 But you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if the Spirit of God really lives in you. Now if anyone doesn't have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.

11 But if the same Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead lives in you, then He that raised up Christ from the dead will also bring your mortal bodies to life again by the Spirit that lives in you.

Been a busy weekend and its not going to get better.

Hubby bought me some planters and tomato plants for Mother's Day :-) Yeah!

Hubby is doing a special class for work this week, which means he leaves later in the morning and gets home earlier (taking my writing time for the week).

Because of his school, he will get off early Friday, so we are going camping. Well, Hubby, the girls, my 6yo, and I are going camping. My adult boys have to work and can't go. So, I need to get ready to go this week.

I'm taking a friend out to lunch for her birthday, and need to see if I can fix the printers in the house.

Add in everything else I need to do, and, well, it's going to be a busy week.

To Do:
  • all the normal chores
  • clean out the cars so I can mothball the volvo wagon that will take too much money to fix and have a couple other storage vehicles hauled off.
  • Call to have the one that's clean off
  • finish setting up the newsletters for the blogs I am doing

My take? Newborns absolutely must be nursed on demand. No exceptions. But older babies need to be eased onto a schedule. There is a big difference between a newborn crying because he is hungry and a 9 month old doing the same.

Exodus 23:17 Three times a year all thy males shall appear before the I AM God.


18 Don't offer the blood of My sacrifice with leavened bread, neither shall the fat of My sacrifice remain until the morning.

Drain the blood out of any sacrifice before it is offered on the altar, with tortillas instead of normal bread, and burn up all the fat immediately.

This would be the cover fat; a layer of fat between the skin and muscle. The marbling fat woven in the muscle wouldn't be removable.

Turns out there is a chemical difference between the cover fat and the marbling fat. Cover fat contains contaminants the body is trying to get rid of. Marbling fat doesn't, but does contain vitamins and minerals necessary for a healthy body.

Blood also contains many contaminants the body is trying to dispose of. We really don't want to put those contaminants into our own body by eating it.

there is an increasing number of people who are victims of the wide spread, systematic yeast infection Candida. I have wondered if we all obtained from yeast breads for a couple weeks a year if it would prevent this.

9 Also thou shall not oppress an immigrant, because you know the heart of a stranger, since you were immigrants in the land of Egypt.

Leviticus 19:10 And thou shall not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather every grape of thy vineyard. Thou shall leave them for the poor and immigrant. I am the Lord your God.

"Gleaning" was when the farmer went back over his fields the second time to gather up the things they missed. Not gleaning the fields was God's "welfare program." The poor could go gather what they needed to survive. However, the food was not delivered to the poor's door. They still had to go work for it. People are not happy, have no sense of self worth, without work.

Leviticus 19:33 And if an immigrant lives with thee in your land, ye shall not mistreat him.

34 But the immigrant who lives with you shall be treated like a native, and thou shall love him as thyself, because you were immigrants in the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God. 


 Leviticus 24:22 You shall have one type of law, the same for the immigrant as for the native, because I am the Lord your God.

...

This is speaking of ally nations such as Edom or Egypt. If their people immigrate to your land, treat them the same as you do your own citizens. Treat them the way you wish the Egyptians had treated you.

There are different standards elsewhere for those from enemy nations. Those who break the laws of the land to come into the land are acting as enemies and should be treated as such. but those who respect the laws, immigrating legally, should be treated like natives.

Our new dog is fitting in nicely. Oh, there have been a few problems, but nothing unexpected or unusual for a new dog, especially one who has never lived in a house, or even with humnas, before. Pepper was a feral dog when the pound caught her. But she greets every human as her long lost best friend she hasn't seen in years.

Hubby and I went to a car auction Saturday and bought a VW van. Hubby's first car was a 1978 VW van, and a different van was the first vehicle we bought together, so we've come full circle. It does have a minor starting problem, but that won't be a big deal to fix.


To Do:
  • Pull music for worship service
  • got stuff posted to fb
  • all the normal chores
  • clean out the cars so I can mothball the volvo wagon that will take too much money to fix and have a couple other storage vehicles hauled off.
  • finish setting up the newsletters for the blogs I am doing
  • switch my son's phone
  • order new eye drops
  • weekly home blessing

Tuh Done (what I've finished for the week):


Nursing on demand and parental authority
My take? Newborns absolutely must be nursed on demand. No exceptions. But older babies need to be eased onto a schedule. There is a big difference between a newborn crying because he is hungry and a 9 month old doing the same.

Exodus 23:4 If thou meet thine enemy's ox or his donkey wandering around, thou will surely bring it back to him again. 

5 If thou see the donkey of him that hates thee fallen down under his burden, don't just walk by. Thou shall surely stop and help. 


It doesn’t matter how you feel about the person, if you see them having trouble, help him. 

Paul worded it in Philippians 2:3 "Don't do anything because of selfish ambition or vanity, but in humbleness of mind let each consider others as more important than themselves.

Got more done yesterday. Nice lunch with dad and got some business for the church done.

We are picking up our new family member in an hour or so :-) Her name is Pepper Anne. She is a Nevada Sage Hound (she was found wandering around the Nevada sage with her brothers) I hope to have pictures tomorrow :-)

To Do:
  • Pull music for worship service
  • finish setting up the newsletters for the blogs I am doing
  • switch my son's phone
  • order new eye drops
  • weekly home blessing

Tuh Done (what I've finished for the week):

  • Got two of the newsletters ready to go.
  • got stuff posted to fb
  • pay church bills
  • finish the aid pamphlet (completely forgot!)
  • monthly printing
  • finished a new type of check list for chores.
  • spent way too much time learning all the new stuff for Lilla Rose that they announced at the Convention last week.
  • fix my display purse, at least as much as I can since my printer broke :-( 
SCIENTISTS’ HYPOCRISIES AND LIES…
"They tell us “the stem cell breakthrough … is about understanding why many pregnancies fail at an early stage—implantation.”"
This is research being done on artificial embryos. Now, scientists changed the definition of :pregnancy" from conception to implantation in the 70's. But if pregnancy doesn't happen until conception, how can the pregnancy "fail at an early stage—implantation.”? Doesn't that statement imply that the pregnancy is already ongoing and then fails when the baby doesn't implant?

Exodus 22:16 And if a man seduces a virgin that is not engaged to anyone, and has sex with her, he will pay the normal bride price and marry her. 

If a man coerces an unattached woman to have sex with him, he is to “make an honest woman of her” by marrying her.

17 If her father absolutely refuses to give her to him, he shall still pay the normal bride price. 

Daddy would be able to tell, theoretically, if this is true love between the two or if it was closer to rape. Either way, the man had to pay the dowry.

Today's Study and Plans

Exodus 22:5 If a man turns his animals loose in someone else's field to eat it, he shall give the owner of the field the best of his own crops as payment. 

6 If a wildfire burns up someone's crops, whether in the field or already harvested, whoever started the fire has to pay for the loss.

Destruction of property is not tolerated, whether accidental or on purpose. The one who causes the loss, fixes it.

Exodus 22b- Destruction of property, Witchcraft


Romans 6

Today's work in Romans 

From
7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet. 

8 But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead. 
to

7 So then, is the Law sin? Of course not! No, I wouldn't have known what sin was if it wasn't for the Law. I wouldn't have known what lust was, except that the Law said, "Thou shall not covet."

8 But sin took advantage of the Law by producing in me every kind of coveting. For without the Law, sin has no power.

Imagine Life Without This"The blessing and the curse of the human brain is that it’s good at adapting—to the good and the bad. Once it adapts, we’re used to what we have. Rather than being in awe of being alive, of having food, water, and shelter, we take them as givens. And then we want more."
