Blogging Smoke...Marijuana that is.

So apparently the learning and stretching is never finished. Anytime I think God has taught me the skills I need it seems He likes to shake things up to show me how much more I need to learn and just how dependent I am on him.
Right now God has me homeschooling 4 children. 1 is a 3 year old, 1 is a "picture thinker", 1 is way smarter than me, and 1 is a...TEENAGER!
This sweet teenager is not my daughter, but she is a wonderful girl full of potential and talent. There is only one problem. I don't know if SHE believes that. Otherwise why oh why would she so desperately want things that are only going to hinder her, hurt her, and scar her. Why do some teenagers (and even adults) do what is mentioned in the Bible as a "dog returning to it's own vomit". Like a Hobbit wanting it's second breakfasts, but the meal is so unappetizing...try telling that to a dog. The thing is most the things dog eat aren't that appetizing to begin with so vomit seems like a viable snack. After all will their owners feed them again if they don't eat it or will they have to suffer with an empty stomach?
Could this be one of the things that makes sin so enticing to us? Maybe at times we really think that it's the best we can get and that with out it we will be kept wanting. God help us have faith in your promises and especially in the promise of heaven so that would not greedily lap up vomit instead of waiting for the wedding feast. It makes me sad to think how often young girls (and boys) give them self away and put themselves in dangerous situations because those things represent love, maturity, and control to them. I used to be that girl. I will regret it forever.
My prayer is that God will help me teach this teen about His love and promises. That her standards would get higher and higher and that she would have a fulfilling life without regret. Any ideas on how to do this?

Make sure she knows the boundaries. "Do you know the boundaries?" Make sure she knows, if something is unacceptable, why it is unacceptable. Make sure she knows the consequences of her behaviors. Accountability is the hardest lesson to learn. I told all my kids and grandkids, growing up is the hardest job you will ever have. And, boy, oh, boy, did I come out with a mixed bag of results. But she has to learn from her own mistakes. Guide her.

The driving a car throughout 187 is just through the amounts as well as allows you to be dependent a lot in sliding to get close to limited sides. There is a nitrous-style boost you'll be able to reach to achieve additional speed, that disappears the enhance meter. The way to get your multi meter backup is always to enter a new skid simply by carrying out a severe powerslide inevitable. The longer the actual skid, the harder enhance you will get back again. Your game's sporting mechanic has a pretty unfastened, arcade-style experience into it and it is very easy to get a grip on. Right after just a few events, you might not even have to take any person; you can easily outrun all of them.
