Mommy Mondays

Today's post should be written by my wife, however I will be writing this post as an homage to her blessedness.

I truly thank YAH for the "good thing" that I have found because with the help of the Spirit of the Almighty she has brought about a change in my life. She has blessed me with a friend and lover, she has bore my beautiful children, she has been my earthly confidant. She carries herself with chastity and grace and to know her is to love her. Her smile, laugh and giving nature draws you to her. Indeed, she has an inviting way about her. My children love and cherish their mother and I could not have (although I had help from above) chosen a better person to partner with on this journey.

This post is about the Mommy in our home and we give her the praise that she cannot give herself, for the scripture declares, "let another man praise you....

To My Beloved!

Back at it part deux, Congratulation

We have a few updates to share with the homes-school community. We graduated our eldest from High school this year and she also celebrated her 17th birthday.

I (dad) took her to a nice lunch to celebrate, know matter how old they get they will always be your baby.

Regarding graduation, we graduated her from our program, she took the HSA'S here in Maryland and completed her G.E.D. I know many will shun the idea of the G.E.D, but we are not big on college for both spiritual and financial reasons (that is not a slight towards others, just our personal feelings). 

However, we are huge on learning and acquiring skills necessary for this world. Indeed, we are huge on being content and letting the most important things be important and that is our submission to the LORD!

We are grateful to GOD for his blessings and truly this child has been a blessing in many ways.

Back at it

Not that I have a lot of readers, but we are back to blogging and hopefully we can blog a little more consistently, as always we thank the Creator for his manifold blessings, mercies, grace and most of all for the Christ!

The Gardening is going well and it has inspired us to do more planting in the future, while reminding us of the parable regarding the sower. It is important to understand the importance of receiving GOD'S Word with understanding;  

But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

Here are a few update photos

We planted/transplanted; Cabbage, Onions, Tomatoes, Herbs (rosemary, thyme, Dill,) Peas, Strawberries, Squash, cucumbers beets, Swiss Chard originally. Then we added Spinach, lettuce, more peppers, more squash (the first ones did not do well) and cantaloupe.

More updates soon.

Community Gardening

We have recently purchased a few plots from the Oregon Ridge Nature Center for planting fruits, herbs and vegetables, which I think is a noble idea. There is just one problem...................... WE HAVE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE!  We have wanted to do this in our own yard, however I have been unwilling to give up the space because our children still play in the yard, so this is great alternative.

Of course we will be using this occasion to incorporate in our homeschooling and it should provide a rich experience in many ways.

We are gathering as much information as we can and asking the Lord to guide us because (we need it) and because there is sooooooo much information out there that one could go into information overdrive after reading it.

I am asking any one that reads this page to drop me a link to your blog page, a link to a site that can help, or share with me via comment or email your expertise.

Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

28 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

11 Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done.
12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,
13 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.
14 And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you.
15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.
16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Happy Passover and Feast week.

May you be blessed by reading his WORD

21 And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,
Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.
And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.
All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,
Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.
And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,
And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.
And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.
And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.
10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?
11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.
12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.
15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore displeased,
16 And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?
17 And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and he lodged there.

1Peter 2:2-3

As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is Gracious.

Walk in the Word Wednesdays

HE Knows

Luke 1:13
13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.

Matthew 6:8
Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

Above are two examples to confirm that HE knows and by HE I mean the Creator of all living, the GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel) YHVH himself. He cares for us sooooo much that it is overwhelming to consider! This Walk in the Word today is just to remind everyone that he knows about your prayers, even the ones you don't pray (the things you dwell on in your mind) for he cares for all of us but especially for those that have been adopted in and abide in his Son!

Let his name be praised.

William and Denise.

Walk in the Word Wednesday.


This is truly the theme that my wife and I share with our children (and anyone who will listen) constantly. We remind them when they do what we all do, (sin) that we must be born again and specifically the quote we say is “that is why we need a Savior”.

Truly we do and as we examine our lives and judge ourselves as the scripture commands we truly recognize quickly that we are wretched. Indeed the wages of sin is death but (hallelujah) the gift of GOD is eternal life.


You Must Be Born Again

3:1 Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” 3 Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” 4 Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?” 5 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

9 Nicodemus said to him, “How can these things be?” 10 Jesus answered him, “Are you the teacher of Israel and yet you do not understand these things? 11 Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen, but you do not receive our testimony. 12 If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things?

These are the lyrics to a song that I have sung to my son since his birth and now he sings it with me, line by line. To hear his small voice praise the Lord in song brings so much joy to my heart…..

I love you!

I love you!

I love you Lord today because you care for me in such a special way.

That’s way I praise you, I lift you up and I magnify your name.

That is why my heart is filled with praise!

We also sing,  Jesus Loves Me…..this I know for the bible tells me so.

My children have truly been a blessing in my life and not a curse as some people might believe. They have bought much joy and happiness to both me and my husband lives and we will forever thank Jehovah for letting us take part in his children’s life, “For it is he that has made us and not we ourselves”. I leave you with his word. Let your light so shine before men, that they might see your good works, and glorify your father which is in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)

Children are A Blessing from GOD

Bible Scriptures

Psalm 113:9

He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.!

Psalm 127:3-5

Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb [is his] reward. As arrows [are] in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy [is] the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

James 1:17

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Homeschooling still........


This year has been full of God's grace and I have continued to lean on his strength. Through the appointments,dirty diapers,meal preparing,hair styling,dirty dishes,loads of clothes,running noses,fevers,reading of textbooks,schoolwork,museums,etc.

He has seen us through and I would not change any of it. God has given me a wonderful family and I find it as a privilege and honor that God has chosen and have trust me with the children and husband that he has given me that I may be a women that serves the Lord and not be a vessel that tears my house down.

{Proverbs 14:1 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.}

I thank God for his word that is truly health to the bones of those who are willing to read it and apply it to their lives. I thank God for his word that is truly health to the bones of those that want to be honest with ones self and want to be pleasing into his sight. Indeed, it's the only thing that will make you free.


This is the sixth year of my homeschooling journey and I am so grateful for all that God has provided for me and my family, through others and through my husband. I thank God for my husband!

I thank God for my husband and I thank God that he mirrors the father and our Lord Jesus Christ for us to see his light. He has truly been a blessing to me on so many levels and I thank God that though he is not perfect he is striving to be complete in him. I thank God that is he is the leader of our house and I love him very much {but he knows that} . I pray that we will continue to be a clean vessel that HE can use.

With His help we can let our light continue to shine so that men can see our good works and glorify Him which is in heaven. I also pray that God will keep you and anyone that comes across this reading and that he will strengthen you and be with you in whatever this life brings.


God Bless and may God's word live through us all.

Walk In the WORD Wednesdays


1 John 4:11-12“Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.”

Below is a draft that I have been holding on to since the incident occurred. I intend to blog more but time escapes me. I want to sit down and write the awesome posts and somehow I don't. The one below is being posted because the issue came up today.

The buzz word for homeschooling reared its ugly head today.

My wife took my oldest and youngest daughters to the clinic today and it was on! Home-schoolers know where I am going with this, my oldest is sixteen and as such there are certain "questions" that they will ask.

Indeed, the Mrs. was ready for the interaction! The world constantly wants to impart their views on to you, while telling you what their view of  normal is.
The interview/interrogation began with some basic questions and progressed to the question about school and when the answer was that they are home-schooled, the atmosphere changed. 

My wife was asked if she thought that she was "hurting" her children by not letting them "socialize" in school. She was told that the children have to "learn how to read people and their mess" and they can only do this by being in school.

What do you think?

TEKEL (Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.) 


The famous/infamous biblical writing on the wall found in the book of Daniel. I truly feel like I have been weighed and found wanting.  I am looking to get back to my first love because I as a husband and father have been lacking. I thank the GOD of AIJ for his grace and chastisement.  Please join me in forgetting those things that are behind and pressing toward the mark. Indeed, we have to learn from the failings of our past, however they can not be changed, contrarily today is the day that is glorious in that it offers us hope and illumination of what is just and true and who is just and true. Pray with me as I focus and think on whatever is full of virtue....
