Friday...How it Looks Around Here


Exam week is over on the home front... at least for our children; they are excited about a longer weekend and I am too! This mom, however,  still has some grading to do. (And it is OK, I am happy with that; I LOVE to see how my Spanish 1 students are already writing 250 words paragraphs and my Spanish 2 students are putting together words and sentences forming 500 words paragraphs!)


Have you ever found something on the Internet  that you just love, a photo, a product, a painting, a book, a purse, a recipe, a cozy space, a sofa, a lamp, a journal, a notebook, a pen, a pencil.... and then you forget where it was?

Well, look at this great place I found (HT. Geninne), Pinterest. It is an online catalog in which you are the curator and you keep track of the pretty things and great ideas you find from here and there. I am just starting my own catalog but you can see what I have already pinned here (link is now working!)

You will soon see this link on my side bar... just for fun, just so you get a better idea of what I like! :)


And the fun part...  A craft for "Big Boys and Girls" (Note that  I say it is an activity for big boys and girls, because they will need to use pins... lots of pins!)

Palo de Lluvia, a Mayan Musical Instrument
  (sorry I don't know the name in English and couldn't find it!)

 * You need a thimble, pins, a cardboard tube (the longer the better), glue, scissors, paints, brushes, and lentils.

 * Following the spiral pattern of the cardboard press in the pins using the thimble.

* Now with some cardboard or construction paper cover one end.

* Now put about 3 spoons of lentils in the tube.

* Cover the other end and start painting it.

 * Now you are ready to make some Mayan music.

Have a most wonderful weekend!

My Photo
If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
