100th day 2018

A few weeks ago, we had our 100th day of school... I almost forgot about it this year! We had been busy and it kinda snuck up on me! We took a day off from the "normal" routine, and read our books that we usually read, made our 100-piece cat puzzle (I didn't get a picture), made link chains of 100 links, and more. I wore my 100 button vest, and Bethany wore a shirt that had 100 fingers on it, we painted several years ago with handprints.

I felt like I was getting sick that day, and I wasn't up to the normal amount of work. We did make lists of 100 animals (divided into groups like mammals, birds, fish, etc.,) and a list of 100 foods (divided into grains, fruit and veggies, etc.,)


The girls have been really into making origami lately (in 3rd grade and 5th/6th) in their spare time, so they made origami 100s too! We made a picture using a black 1, 0, 0 numerals to create something. Bethany's was an octopus and Mallory's was an alien. We also made a cupcake together, and they cut out and glued on 100 sprinkles. It was a fun day!


 They had "sprinkles" of construction paper all over their hands! :-D

What did you do for your 100th day of school? I'd love to hear about it!


We read this parable on the 100th day of school too...

Luke 15:3-7
Then Jesus told them this parable:  “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?  And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’  I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

Losing a friend...

One of my dear friends passed away last week. I was going to write a big blog post about her, but I don't think I can right now, it is still hard for me to think about her really being gone. I am still processing it. Since her funeral is today, I thought I would post the poem I wrote about her, Sharon. I will really miss her, she was like another mom in my life for a little while... (I cried just typing this...)

I lost a friend yesterday.
A dear, sweet lady, a mother,
grandmother, a mentor,
a diligent servant of God.

I remember all you taught me
about being a mother,
about crafting and decorating,
about just friendship.

I know you struggled
with health problems.
I know you struggled in
other ways too. But always
you had a smile.

I'll miss your caring,
kind, loving heart.
I'll miss knowing you were there,
just a phone call away.

It seems your life ended too soon.
But I know it is in God's timing.
So I will trust God.
I miss you, but find joy knowing
you are with Him.

I see you in Jesus' arms
free of pain, with a new body.
Goodbye, my friend.
I'll miss you, goodbye.

I found these Bible verses comforting...

1 Thessalonians 4:14-15
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. 

Revelation 21:4
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. 

Psalm 119:50
This is my comfort in my affliction, that your promise gives me life.

"Bleed the Same" song

This is a newer song by the Christian artist Mandisa who happens to be black. She sings it with another Christian artist, TobyMac who is white. I love it because it has so many truths that we need to hear in our country. We need to hear that the color of our skin or gender doesn't matter, we all can love each other and need love. Everyone bleeds, the color of our blood is the same. It is the perfect song for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Our country needs LESS division and more love, the perfect love of Christ!



"Bleed The Same"
(feat. tobyMac, Kirk Franklin)

[Mandisa:]
We all bleed the same
We're more beautiful when we come together
We all bleed the same
So tell me why, tell me why
We're divided

[tobyMac:]
Woke up today
Another headline
Another innocent life is taken
In the name of hatred
So hard to take (hey!)
And if we think that it's all good
Then we're mistaken
'Cause my heart is breaking

[Mandisa:]
Are you left?
Are you right?
Pointing fingers, taking sides
When are we gonna realize?

We all bleed the same
We're more beautiful when we come together
We all bleed the same
So tell me why, tell me why
We're divided

If we're gonna fight
Let's fight for each other
If we're gonna shout
Let love be the cry
We all bleed the same
So tell me why, tell me why
We're divided

[Mandisa (tobyMac):]
Tell me, who are we
To judge someone
By the kind of clothes they're wearing
Or the color of their skin?
Are you black? (black)
Are you white? (white)
Aren't we all the same inside? (the same inside)
Father, open our eyes to see!

We all bleed the same (we all bleed the same)
We're more beautiful when we come together
We all bleed the same (we all bleed the same)
So tell me why, tell me why
We're divided
If we're gonna fight
Let's fight for each other (fight for each other!)
If we're gonna shout
Let love be the cry (be the cry!)
We all bleed the same (we all bleed the same)
So tell me why, tell me why
We're divided

[Kirk Franklin:]
Only love can drive out all the darkness
What are we fighting for?
We were made to carry one another
We were made for more, said...

[Kirk Franklin & Mandisa:]
Only love can drive out all the darkness
What are we fighting for?
We were made to carry one another
We were made for more!

[Mandisa (tobyMac):]
We all bleed the same (we all bleed the same)
We're more beautiful when we come together...
Let's stand united!
We all bleed the same (we all bleed the same)
So tell me why, tell me why
We're divided
If we're gonna fight
Let's fight for each other (fight for each other!)
If we're gonna shout
Let love be the cry (be the cry!)
We all bleed the same (we all bleed the same)
Bleed the same
Let's stand united (let's stand united)
Let's stand united!

[Kirk Franklin:]
So Father God, I pray
That our families will come together right now
And seek Your face
You will forgive our sins
And You will heal our incredible land
In the name of the only Savior, Jesus Christ
Amen

You can find the NEW video of this song here. (I like the sign language in the video!)



Psalm 27:8
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek.

2 Chronicles 7:14
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Psalm 41:4
I said, “Have mercy on me, Lord; heal me, for I have sinned against you.”
