Can We Talk About That?

Mini Mi – Penny for your thoughts…

So, we are trying to convince Mini Mi that taking my purse, hiding in the closet, removing and saving my belongings [she especially likes my face power, mascara, and lip gloss] for future use… Tearing my dollar bills in half, returning [only] the other half to my purse… is wrong!

Her Daddy told her “this is called stealing and it is wrong.” Her reply, which was animatedly accompanied by indescribable facial expressions, hands waving and finger pointing, was:  SHH, Quiet! Its Mine!”

And me; I don’t even know what to do but laugh, but not in front of her mind you! 🙂

She just seems to be determined to have a collection of my belongings  in her closet, clothing drawers, or other undiscovered secret places… and as I write this she is proudly prancing about with black looking warrior marks [the mascara] streaked across both eye lids. I wish the web cam was working about now, so I could share a picture of this with you! However, I’m feeling pretty sure that you [at least the moms anyway] can mentally picture this and heartily laugh without one! 🙂

Yep, our Mini Mi is a most tenacious and feisty three year old, hence my hubby nick naming her “Mini Mi.” Truth is, he loves her resemblance to her tenacious, sometimes stubborn mommy! ;-) My quick witted temperament and pull er up by the boot strap attitude, if need be, was a source of wonder and attraction to him back in our prior marriage days… and I suspect [even be it to his bewilderment sometimes] that it still is! LOL

A few months ago, I shared with Mrs. Williams “Mini Mi’s” ability to frustrate the hay out of her Sunday school teachers by [often] suddenly and without notice escaping their class, which has locks and latches that she cannot reach. They have no idea how she gets the door open because if she used something to stand on it would seem that it would block the door from opening. This is not a very big room either…

Ms. Williams said, “She is going to be a prophetess.” …and then I start thinking, well praise the Lord that at least Juan and I now understand such things as this; so maybe she won’t have to struggle down some of the paths we did! Which, by the way, is one of my main concerns in her having such a kindred spirit to mommy.

But really what to do with her…? We don’t want to break her will; that often seemed to be the goal of many parents when Juan and I were growing up. I firmly believe that she’s going to strongly need that daring, spunky, feisty little tenacious attitude in this [sometimes very mean] old world as she grows up. This world is not getting any better; it is getting worse day by day… And I can testify that its evil would have literally swallowed me whole [many times] if God had not blessed me with the strengths that He did… no, indeed I did not save myself, His blessings and favor did.

Any whom, purse is rescued, other half of dollar permanently lost it seems, and I’m going back to my school work now.

Penny for your thoughts…

He’s Still Working On Me

Okay… The Instructor told us to ask our friends, family, leaders, etc. If they consider us [um yes-me] to be a “godly” person… I immediately thought well, my goodness -NO! Really, I don’t need to ask that of anyone! Because, No more than likely Not! However, a childhood song did come up right away — flooding my thoughts — Now, if I could Only Get it out of my mind I might could watch the remainder of the lecture! LOL 🙂

He’s Still Working On Me:

[v.1] There really ought to be a sign upon the heart, Don’t judge her yet, there’s an unfinished part. But I’ll be perfect just according to His plan Fashioned by the Master’s loving hands.

Chorus:
He’s still working on me to make me what I ought to be. It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars,
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars. How loving and patient He must be, He’s still working on me.

[v.2] In the mirror of His Word reflections that I see Make me wonder why He never gave up on me. He loves me as I am and helps me when I pray Remember He’s the Potter, I’m the clay.

Chorus:
He’s still working on me to make me what I ought to be. It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars,
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars. How loving and patient He must be, He’s still working on me.
