基督降临历我几乎没有从我的土耳其碗伤病(克莉丝汀对我的伤害如此之深,以至于老爸常说四分卫和裁判不必要地粗暴对待她。)但今天我要把我疼痛的身体拖到阁楼上,找出复临的日历。

Mom bought it for us a few years ago,and my children love to open a new door each day to find a piece of candy and a Scripture 兴发xf881手机版about the Christmas story.Steve reads the verses aloud while the kids listen attentively,他们嘴里塞满了巧克力和牛轧糖。

In the past,我用这个简单Christmas countdown以及参考文献。今年,now that Jack's older,我正在适应这个时间表of longer readings that begin with the Old Testament prophecies.As the days march toward Christmas,I want him to connect,in some small way,to the centuries of longing for the Messiah.

我还拉了南希·古思里的Come Thou Long Expected Jesusoff the bookshelf and placed it in my basket of quiet 下载兴发pt首页登录time stuff.我没有做标记,就像我写大多数书一样,so I can enjoy the daily readings afresh each year.

For my children,and for myself,I don't want"the busyness of [the Christmas season]…to crowd out a quiet anticipation of the wonder of incarnation."我希望上帝的荣耀成为人,照亮和超越我们所有的圣诞快乐。

感恩节活动

2009 at 12:27 pm   |   by Nicole Whitacre 归档下Homemakingγ假期

If you're looking for a fun activity for the kids tomorrow,this is one of our children's favorites:

andrew turkeyRice Krispy Turkeys

These cute little turkeys are a great edible craft to make with the kids while the real turkey is roasting in the oven.Mix up a batch of Chocolate Rice Krispies and design them into turkey treats.Then save them for a fun table decoration,准备吃甜点。

火鸡食品供应:
*巧克力米粉
*棉花糖-使用彩色棉花糖最能保持巧克力脆饼的棕色。
*黄油
*牙签-彩色和派对用,顶部有有趣的喇叭。
*各种糖果-Mike&Ikes,candy corn,gum drops,mini m&ms,水果圈麦片,更多的棉花糖。

用巧克力麦片混合一批米脆饼,棉花糖,还有黄油。Let it cool for a few minutes.然后用蔬菜喷雾把你的手弄湿,然后把Kippes做成球。Try to use the colored marshmallows for making these.如果你用白棉花糖,只要把你的球滚进更多的巧克力谷类食品里,让它们更适合火鸡的身体。

使用器具,给糖果在身体上打个洞。For the snood (the red thing on the turkey's beak) I cut a red Mike & Ike in half or you can cut a gum drop in half.我们还喜欢用玉米糖做喙,perfect size and color.

现在加上你的羽毛。So many possibilities here.我们用牙签,棉花糖,谷类食品,etc.

We added a cellophane bag and ribbon to them,所以他们会在甜点上保持柔软。我们还为每个地方设置了一个名字标签。

这项活动应该能让孩子们忙一段时间。为每个来吃饭的人做一个。然后在感恩节晚餐后尽情享用这些美味的火鸡。

These quesadillas are a unique way to use up leftover turkey and cranberry sauce;或者,as the recipe suggests,you can put the salsa on turkey sandwiches.I might just eat the salsa with a spoon;那太好了。

星期五趣闻

2009 at 6:53 pm   |   by Nicole Whitacre 归档下Fun & Encouragementγ星期五趣闻

丽贝卡给我们讲了一个非常尴尬的时刻:

我的姐姐,Esther,教游泳课,并且必须以这种方式认识社区里的很多孩子和他们的父母。When she meets them somewhere other than the pool,虽然,they often don't recognize her because she's not in a bathing suit with wet hair.

一天下午,她去一家杂货店给妈妈买东西。当时真的很忙,在一个过道里,她看到一个女人,她的孩子是她教的。埃丝特说你好,and smiled,but the woman obviously didn't recognize her.Esther kept walking.她在过道的尽头,听到后面传来一个响亮的声音。"哦!It's YOU!我没认出你穿着衣服!""

我们星期一回来过一个有趣的感恩节!!

Profitable for Mom

2009 at 3:12 pm   |   by Kristin Chesemore 归档下Biblical Womanhoodγ虔诚生活γHomemakingγ假期

前几天,我的三个男孩步行下楼到厨房。他们在争论。

"He took my quarters!"我7岁的儿子指着他的弟弟。

"No,Mom,I brought these quarters home from Mom-Mom's house!"the accused brother defended himself.

当我试图从他们那里得到这个故事时,一次……一次……一下载兴发pt首页登录次……责怪的话不断地流淌,with frequent interruptions and scowls.

My temptation in these moments?我想通过我的命令和指示迅速做出决定:“Boy #1 is wrong.男孩2是对的。Case closed."I want peace for myself more than I want to teach my children God's Word.This temptation is especially acute over the holidays.

But my words—although very important!-不够。My children need to hear God's Words.他们需要圣经,哪个是“"有利可图的for teaching,correcting,and training in righteousness"(2 Tim.3:16)。They need God's promises and commands sown like seed into their little hearts.They need the words from God's mouth,永远不会返回空的。55:11).

所以我们回到《以弗所书4:29》中最常引用的诗句:Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths,但只有这样才有利于建设,as fits the occasion,好叫这恩典赐给听见的人。」"

"Is corrupting talk coming out of your mouths?"I ask my boys."什么样的话能使你哥哥宽限呢?""

和惊喜,surprise—Scripture serves me too.我和我的儿子一样需要圣经中赋予生命的话语。我也需要以弗所书4:29的鼓励和纠正。

这就是为什么我必须每天坐着听耶稣的教导的原因之一。以便我和我的孩子们能从他的话中获益。

For Our Profit

2009年下午2:30,卡罗琳·玛哈尼 归档下Biblical Womanhoodγ虔诚生活γHomemakingγ假期

What is this teaching we are toand去??

这是上帝的话,the Bible.

上帝的话和我们读过的其他书一样:"All Scripture is breathed out by God and有利可图的for teaching,for reproof,为了纠正,and for training in righteousness.""2 Timothy 3:16

bible chair我们如何从圣经中获益?上帝的话语…

Gives us peace (Ps.119:165).

Fills us with hope (Col.1:5)

Strengthens our faith (Rom.10:17)

Revives our soul (Ps.19:7)

为我们提供智慧1:1-7,Matt。7:24-27)

引导我们(Ps.)119:105)

Warns us (Deut 32:46)

Corrects us (2 Tim 3:16)

Comforts us (Ps.119:50)

Enable us to fight sin (Ps.119:11)

Most importantly,上帝的话语引导我们走向基督。(HEB 1:1-2)

为什么我们忽视了阅读,研究,记住,沉思着这珍贵的,life-giving book??

正如约翰·派珀在PS上的评论。19:7."耶和华的律法是完全的,唤醒灵魂”:

"Even on days when every cinder in our soul feels cold,我们若爬到神的道前,呼喊着要听,冰冷的灰烬将被掀开,生命的微小火花将被扇动。For ‘the law of the Lord is perfect,唤醒灵魂。”"

愿上帝帮助我们坐着听耶和华的教训。!
