Peaceful Start of A New Day

I awoke @ 7am today. I should have gotten up earlier. Danny usually wakes "the family" up @ 7:15 or 7:30. To be honest, we're not going to make it to Sunday School today because my husband is still sleeping and I wanted to finish my daily Bible reading. It had alot of interesting stuff in it. Then I decided to write on this blog too. (I know this is selfish of me I could be getting our kids up at this moment and I understand my husband is just tired.)

Green Onions By Booker T & the MGs

Here's some groovy psychadelic background music from the '60's

1000 Miles From Nowhere

Here's my favorite by Dwight Yoakam. Love this song. Dwight and his friend put the video together. They each put one together and then compared them. It was interesting to see how the shots would match up. So they decided to run the two side by side for the official video. Later she died in the 9-11 World Trade Center Bombing.

Here's the video.

April 2

Since I'm driving in our carpool this week, I cleaned out the car yesterday and vaccuumed it and filled it with gas.

I didn't get the job I tried out for last Thursday.

I read chapter 2 of Job. I thought he was going through some struggles in the first chapter but he still had more hardship to face. But his attitude was most admirable when he told his wife that God provides enjoyments along with adversities in life.

Tuesday April 3

I'm so glad to tell you I got my license to teach in the mail yesterday. I spent last night filling out an application for Broken Arrow schools.
I'm mad at myself though. I just don't want to get myself down. I did an embarrassing job during my interview last week. I got too honest and talked my self down. I need to remember you can be honest without saying anything. I try hard to be honest and real to people. I've known two of those giving the interview for several years. I was not nervous. My first wrong move was just straight out telling them I was working toward becoming a teacher in the fall. I don't want to lie. One or two salary people spoke of my positive qualities but then during the interview, I'd say, "To be honest . . . and then I'd shoot myself in the foot. I'm embarrassed. I would have definitely got it if they would have just allowed me to move there because of my high score. And then I would have done just fine learning the new job but during the interview I told them my intellect is not as high as most so it takes me a little longer to learn a job but once I learn I have it down well. I also didn't stress how important quality is. I should have thoroughly explained how I understand that quality in our ranges is the foundation of what we do. Instead I probably sounded like some one who just wanted to make some new friends.

All of this frustrates me. Most of all I just gotta do perfect for my teaching interviews I put in for. I've got to get a teaching job.

I guess my current job has a fool proof way of weeding out those not qualified . . . not.

April 4

Twenty more hours of work and then the weekend is here. This is an obvious statement but between Stacy, Kim and me someone will usually mention it every week.

Yesterday morning Kim said she had not gotten much rest the night before. Her nine year old son had decided to take a walk in the woods near their home. He said he wanted to look closer at a cow he saw. When he didn't come home Kim went looking for him. She did alot of walking. She had to walk through thorn bushes and through a pond. She found him and altogether the two had walked about three miles when Kim's sister came by and picked them up. When her son got home he received some serious disciplinary action. I told Kim I would have glared at him as if I was glaring a hole right through his head and then I would have given him a long lecture on doing right with lots of repetition until great guilt weighed him down and then finally he would have received his disciplinary action!

Easter Day celebrates the rest of the Christmas story.

Jesus was born like all humans and then He lived his life without doing wrong. And then He died representing our sin to the sinless God who had to forsake such a sight. And then He arose from the dead never to die but instead to ascend to heaven. And He won over the stronghold Satan had over humanity so that anyone who would choose God could spend eternity in an excellent place called Heaven.

Locks Of Love

I got my hair cut last night. Ginny went with me. We went to Ulta near 71st and Highway 169 in Tulsa. A man named Scott cut my hair. He did nice work. The two times that I have got my hair cut at Ulta for Locks of Love it seems they take their time and do a good job. As he cut my hair we talked. He graduated from the same high school my husband went to (the high school of the town we live in now). He used to be in a band as the drummer for 15 years. The band was having some real success. They opened for Richard Marx and some other famous names. They even had their own performances with a lead in band.

6th Grade Science Class

I substitute teach on Fridays. I taught at a middle school this week. This school was built just four years ago. The setup of the building was great. The school had no bells except for at the start and end of the day. At one specific time during the day all students stop and read for about 20 minutes no matter what class they're in.

Coffee and Stained Teeth

This morning on my way to my son's junior high Sunday school class my family dentist from before I was married was politely holding the door open for those passing through. It just so happened that a question had popped in my head during the past week that I really wanted to ask him. So I did just that.

Credo

The Apostle's Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. AMEN

Wisdom In Teaching

When I went to Northeastern State University to get my teaching degree, one day as I was driving down main street, I started thinking about knowledge. It's a great thing to be on a college campus where you're surrounded by people who love and know many interesting things.

Prayer Today

Most people, even Christians, don't take prayer to God seriously. I don't pray like I should. I used to pray more. Most people just do things in their own strength. As a Christian I know prayer does at least two things for me. First, I spend more time in God's presence, focused on him. Second, I am building treasure in my eternal heavenly dwelling place.

Missing You by Krauss and Waite

Allison Krauss has a voice like an angel. When she sings she turns gentleness into strength and you just wanna listen one more time to her songs and feel the underlying boldness that rises up through her softly sung words. She recently did a remake with John Waite, who originally sang his song, Missing You over 20 years ago. I think you'll enjoy this video like I have:
