    The 4th Day Alliance

    The 4th Day Alliance is a great resource to study astronomy in the Creationist point of view. Here is a portion from the About Us from their website:

    The 4th Day Alliance is a non-profit religious organization dedicated to proclaiming the Glory of God through astronomy (a Creation Astronomy ministry). We accomplish this primarily by educating the public about astronomy through star parties, lectures, and seminars, and by distributing magazines, books, tracts, and astronomy articles from a Biblical creationist perspective.

    There are a myriad of resources available on their website, especially if you become a member. Membership is free.

    I Shall Not Be Shaken

    My verse for the day is:

    I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. (Psalm 16:8 ESV)

    It is a very befitting verse for me. I woke up early this morning with a dread that was shaking me. To wit, I was worried about money. Money that I don't have. Money to buy things I need, not just want. You know, like to buy a few food items we are running out of, or gasoline for the car.

    Then I decided to read my Bible and listen to God who always has something to say about worry, and about trust. After embarking on a new Bible reading plan, I decided to open up one more app. Daily Bread: Today's Verse for Me. And there it was. God is in control. He knows what we need. He will provide. He is at my right hand. I shall not be shaken.

    This will be a tough month for us. My paycheck was much lower than normal due to not having enough accumulated leave for my extended leave of absence. God is in control. Please pray that this message goes to my heart and my head.

    My Walk in Christ

    God has really been working in my life, although it may not seem like it on the outside. To be sure, our family has been experiencing a lot of issues: sickness, injury, and financial hardships. However, even in the storm, God has been more than faithful. I am ever in awe of His richness and his mercy. As we begin a new year, I have decided to spend more time with my Savior, and I wish to blog about it to keep a record of it. This helps me to be more accountable. My goal is to blog at least once a week, but hopefully more often. I would love to hear other people's insights and comments if you care to walk this walk with me.

    Waking in the Night

    Pain. There is a lot of it in this world, in this city, in this home, in this room. Some pain is emotional, some is spiritual, and some is physical. In my case, the pain is physical, but it reminds me that others are hurting more than I am. Mothers with sick children - not sick for a day or two, but for a lifetime that will be shortened. Wives who have been betrayed and are now raising children on their own. Men and women with cancer. People who have lost jobs, lost homes, lost loved ones. How do they cope if they don't have Christ? My heart cries for them. I've been through some of these, but my hope isn't on the fleeting and the temporal. My hope is in the risen Savior Christ Jesus. My hope is in the eternal God of the universe who loves me with an amazing love that I don't deserve.

    I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. {bible}Philippians 4:13{/bible}

    My Concept of a Week Must Be Weak

    Okay, so I haven't put my thoughts to "paper" since February.  That makes my weekly updates very weak.  Sometimes I just don't know what to say.  Sometimes I don't have inspiring thoughts.  Sometimes I don't feel like typing.  Sometimes I'm tired and cannot put two words together.

    About the Entmoot

    Okay, what is an entmoot? In J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy, an ent is a shepherd of the trees. An entmoot is a meeting of the ents to discuss issues. When we first started homeschooling, I asked my husband to come up with a name, and that's what he came up with. It has stuck. Even though we like Tolkien's writings, and have named our cats and homeschool after characters in the books, we are not obsessed with Lord of the Rings. We are totally devoted followers of the Risen Saviour Christ Jesus. Everything that we do, we do for His glory, including homeschooling our three children.
