I’m an Intern

Today I found out I am graduating from Texas A&M on May 12 at 9:00am, YEAH! This semester I am required to work a sixteen week internship. This was an opportunity to request an agency where I can be offered a job, at a descent pay. That’s why I have been going to school……right? I had no peace. I know being a wife and a mother is my number one priority, but my husband is seeking my help financially. One Sunday night Allen Palermo enlightened me with words that set me free.

Search me, O God, and know my heart;

test me and know my anxious thoughts.

See if there is any offensive way in me,

and lead me in the way everlasting.

Psalm 139:23-24

There are so many offensive ways within me. I thank the Lord for helping me to realize them and turn away. This verse led me to Hope Pregnancy Center. I have been here for 4 weeks and counting. I could not ask for a more family friendly environment. The Lord told me to seek Him, so I am using this time to serve him and pray about what will happen next. I have absolutely no chance of being offered a job here, but this is where God wants me and I am so thankful. Next week I am going through the training to become a counselor. I can’t wait to love on these women. I know what it is like to not care for yourself. I know how it feels to be empty and seek love from others instead of God. I know that He can change lives.

“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus

to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

Ephesians 2:10

Spanky

 Okay, so there is somthing freaky going on in our house.  My little one loves to play with baby dolls.  She loves to feed them, make them go potty, bath them, but most of all she loves to spank them.  Is this weird?  I ask her why they are getting spankings and she always gives a ligitimate reason.  However, they get spanked, put into time out, spanked again, time out again, spanked one more time and then finally the punishment is over.  I try and explain to her that little babies need love and kisses, but the game goes on.  Tristin never did this.  I know they are different but it freaks me out.  Is she expressing authority over these baby dolls because she is the youngest child and it makes her feel powerful?   Is she imitating me, because I am not that mean.  Should I let her disipline her babies because the bible says spare the rod (in her case the hair brush) spoil the child?  Any advice?  On a sidebar she has never spanked a real baby, but she did try to spank her Uncle Wade.

LOVE, PEACE, & SPANKINS
