[quote:Anonymous Coward 4393568:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzI4NzcxMzA3XzFEOTI5OEEw] The difference between reacting and responding So they [b]hurried[/b] off and found Miriam and Yosef, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. [b]But Miriam treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart[/b]. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. Who = How they reacted The shepherds hurried to meet Jesus When the shepherds met Jesus, then they spread the word The people who heard it, they were amazed But...Miriam treasured up all the things and pondered them in her heart. This is how to respond. Most people quickly do something, and then in falls off in strength. The shepherds to their credit praise and glorify God for what they've heard and see. They hurry. The people are amazed. Usually those things are not in a perpetual state, but rise and have a peak and then inevitable drift down. Some people call this the "mystical experience" or the "peak experience" when someone truly sees Jesus face-to-face, But Miriam (Mary) treasures. She gives it value. She realizes it's importance. Jesus and what He means is someone who will be perpetually of importance. What does it all mean? What does it mean for Jesus to be in our lives? What could it mean? You will spend a lifetime trying to understand the importance of Jesus, what it means for God to be made flesh and dwell with us and to humble Himself and for God to be with us. Miriam responds slowly and intentionally. We need to be more like Miriam and think about our actions and what his presence means for the rest of our lives. Christmas comes and then it is gone. It's the seconds of opening a present, and then a brief thank you and the wadding of gift paper. Many weeks later, the gift sit on shelves, our thanks forgotten, and the hurry of Christmas, the amazement of bright Christmas lights and sentimental feelings are gone. Treasure Jesus and consider his gift of his Presence perpetually in your lives. Merry Christmas. Treasure that joy forever. [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
