Happy Mother's Day 2020


Dear Christian Mothers,

I hope you may have a blessed Mother's Day. How sweet that someone some time ago came up with a day to honor their dear mother. The Proverbs 31 woman's children arose and called her blessed, and so did her husband.

I wanted to share something with you below that I came across the other day. I know we are not truly angels, for we need our dear Saviour Jesus to save us from our sins. But the below little article had me in tears--it was a reminder for me of the great duty the Lord gives us when He gives us a new child--OH! What a blessing! It is such an amazing blessing--a great duty and a privilege. Every day we should be asking the Lord for His help to be a sweet and wise mother for our children, and every day we should be thankful for this great privilege and gift to be called "Mother".
~*~NEWBORN'S CONVERSATION WITH GOD~*~

A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow,
but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"

God said, "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."

The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have
to do anything but sing and smile to be happy."

God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you.
and you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."

Again the small child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand
when people talk to me if I don't know the language?"

God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words
you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will
teach you how to speak."

"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"

God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach
you how to pray."

"Who will protect me?"

God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life."

"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."

God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach
you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you."

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth
could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave
now, please tell me my angel's name."

God said, You will simply call her, "Mom."

Important Information for Your Family


Unless you've had your head literally buried in the sand, you've probably heard some things about a vaccine being in the works for COVID-19.  This will probably be as helpful as the flu vaccine is in preventing flu--people who get vaccinated still get the flu and even worse.

As mothers who care for our families, I believe we should be educated in matters of health, so we know the best decisions to make regarding our families' health.  Don't just take your doctor's word for it.  Many vaccines also contain aborted babies--do you think Christians should put any such thing in theirs or their children's bodies?

In light of the vaccine that is in the works and that may even be pushed upon people, there is a good video series going on right now which has just started, about vaccines.  I highly recommend you sign up (for free) to watch the series and educate yourself on the truth about vaccines.  You will want to sign up as soon as possible because the series has just started, and I believe that each section is only available for one day.  I have not watched this series before, but it looks like it will be very good.  I've done my own vaccine research, but I'm interested to see what else I can learn from this series.   You can sign up here.


What You Will Learn

The History of Vaccines
Vaccination programs are given credit for eradicating some of the most devastating illnesses of the past, but they’re no longer immune to controversy of their own.
Vaccine Risks and Safety Concerns
Concerns about vaccine injuries, mercury toxicity, and autism have increased substantially in recent years, and public debate is once again heating up.
Full List of Options and Alternatives
You don’t have to pro- or anti-vaccine anymore. New options are available to guard against serious illness, based on your unique situation and risk factors.
ALL NEW Episodes for 2020!
Two new full episodes titled: "Censorship & Suppression" and "W.H.O.'s Not Telling the Truth?"

Facts Matter



Another I've copied and pasted for your information (and video below):

Folks, facts matter.

Facts matter : Bill Gates

Concerning but not incriminating:
Bill Gates moved all his investments around and invested in “philanthropy”, 5G, and pharmaceuticals.

Super Bizarre considering the timing 🤔🤯:
Bill Gates held an event 201 pandemic simulation of coronavirus before this all happened.

Now this is just plain nefarious if true:
Bill Gates is suddenly portrayed in media articles as having some say in our health and the presidents decisions.

Also concerning but not entirely Incriminating:
Bill Gates was friends with Jeffery Epstein (convicted pedophile and child sex trafficker) and photographed together on more than one occasion.

Ok, so this is pushing the concern to another level :
Bill Gates is the second largest WHO donor, and the WHO is calling for the removal of people from their homes with the 🦠 (?).

Now this is treasonous:
Bill Gates openly wants a one world government, policy, currency, and tracking devices implanted into people.

This is just corruption:
Bill Gates has the head of the Coronavirus task force- Dr Anthony Fauci- who is currently advising the president what to do with the entire country right now- on the board of his foundation!!

This is telling:
Bill Gates has invested in 7 coronavirus vaccines and patents.

Facts matter.

This is a News Post



I am not a big fan of watching news.  I definitely don't believe much of anything they report because they have been shown to be extremely biased and even to lie outright.  But quite obviously, our world has now been turned upside down!  All because of a virus?  I'm sure we've had many viruses before, but these drastic measures did not go along with it.  So this concerns me quite a bit, especially as we are finding it quite difficult to now get the food and other items we need.  I'm also thinking about the men who are not able to go out and provide for their families during this time.  It isn't right for them to be forced to stay home.

I am not saying there is not a virus at all, but there are too many questionable things going on, and we, Christians, should most especially not trust blindly in what is parroted to us, but we should be WISE as serpents (Matthew 10:16).  There have been many things brought to my attention, and in this post, I am going to share just a small sampling of them with you to hopefully get you thinking.

The below video is very interesting.  Citizens have gone to hospitals reported on the news to see if what is being reported is true:



Watch as a W.H.O. Official describes how they: "May have to enter homes and remove family  members".  This really should shock and horrify you.  There was a longer video, but it has since been removed.

 


Plans to use microchip implants to fight coronavirus article here (with many links to sources).

The below is an excellent video from a doctor who describes how death certificates work (she writes many herself).
Montana physician Dr. Annie Bukacek discusses how COVID 19 death certificates are being manipulated:


 

An article on the same thing the above doctor is telling about:
CDC Tells Hospitals To List COVID as Cause of Death Even if There are No Test Results Confirming it

An article where a Swiss doctor shares some facts on COVID-19.

Here is some good news:
'This Is Not Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia Where You Are Asked For Your Papers!' Says Maine Sheriff

If you watch some of Amazing Polly's videos on Youtube, she puts some pieces of this puzzle together.

And just in case you still think the news can be trusted, here's proof of them reading from the same script:

 


I don't know what else to say at this point!  There is so much more I could share.  Only God knows for sure what is going on, and we can trust that He is sovereign over all.  I think we all really need to get on our knees before Him though, and definitely do not agree to any vaccines!

Liberty



COPIED AND PASTED: IRONICALLY, FOUR DAYS AGO, MARCH 23, WAS THE 245TH ANNIVERSARY OF PATRICK HENRY’S IMMORTAL “GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH” SPEECH. WITHOUT A DOUBT, THIS SPEECH IS REGARDED YET TODAY AS AMERICA’S MOST FAMOUS, MOST INSPIRING AND MOST INFLUENTIAL ORATORICAL PRESENTATION. IF THERE WAS ANY DOUBT THAT AMERICA WAS GOING TO FIGHT A WAR FOR INDEPENDENCE FROM GREAT BRITAIN, THAT SPEECH SHATTERED IT.

"Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"

This speech needs to be repeated in the ears of the American people today, as we again face a new version of subjugation under Martial Law—Medical Martial Law.

In principle, what Patrick Henry said about British overlords could be said about the various health departments and local and State governments that are right now eviscerating the Bill of Rights. As Constitutional Attorney Robert Barnes accurately and astutely noted:

"Our founders were intimately familiar with pandemics, viruses and plagues, yet they did not allow any to suspend our Constitutional liberties. Not one word in the Constitution about plagues or pandemics to exempt the government from any of our Bill of Rights."

How can we not see that fear of the coronavirus is being used to acclimate the American people to the disintegration of our Natural and constitutional liberties? What is the purpose of all of this hype and hysteria about corona if it “be not to force us to submission?”

If one wants to see REAL death and destruction, just take away the liberties contained in our Bill of Rights and turn America into a totalitarian, impoverished Third World country comprised only of rich and poor: where the rich have rights but the poor do not, where the rich have jobs but the poor do not, where the rich have guns but the poor do not, where the rich can travel but the poor cannot, where the rich have access to government but the poor do not and where the rich have adequate healthcare but the poor do not. And that is exactly what the powers that are hyping this virus are attempting to do: ruin the prosperity of America’s working middle class.

Let me ask readers something: Is your life more important to you than your children’s liberty?
If it is, then stop pretending to be an American. Stop pretending to believe in freedom. Stop pretending to support our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Stop saluting the flag. Stop commemorating the deaths of the brave men who died “protecting liberty” at Flanders, Verdun, Argonne Forest, Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, Corregidor, Anzio, Bastogne, Normandy, etc.

Through two World Wars and a Great Depression MY parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents (and those entire generations) endured enough suffering and death to test anyone’s commitment to liberty—many times over.

And after it was all said and done, their descendants (YOU AND I) were handed a Bill of Rights that had been bought and paid in blood—just as their parents and grandparents had handed it to them. Are we now going to surrender the constitutionally protected liberties bequeathed to us by our parents and grandparents—and granted to us by our Creator—because we MIGHT die of a flu-like virus, a virus that has a global mortality rate of less than 1%?

In the midst of our national crisis today, our cry should be the same as the cry of great Americans such as Patrick Henry and my parents during their respective crises: “Give me liberty or give me death.”

I’ll take the risks of freedom over the security of government “protection” (aka oppression) any day!

Distractions and Fear Mongering



I don't know about you, but I am so sick of hearing about coronavirus.  I think a lot of it is fear-mongering to distract us from other things.  When doing my shopping this week online, I was barely able to get deliveries scheduled--no doubt because a lot more people are having their groceries delivered instead of going out to get them.  One store's website kept having technical errors, perhaps due to too many people on it at once.  And then, when I went to purchase toilet paper because we are running out, I could hardly find any to buy!--all because people are giving way to this fear the media is spreading like wildfire.  People are being completely selfish and stockpiling things they don't need.

We, as Christian homemakers, may just need to turn the news off until this passes.  We should be focusing on our homes and families and doing what we can for their health--feeding them healthy, home-cooked meals, for one.  It is processed foods and white sugar that harms our immune systems.  Also, as time permits, learn about treating your own family's health.  In the past, I have learned about essential oils and herbs, and then came to learn about homeopathy.  Homeopathy is my favorite.  We use it all the time for both acute and chronic conditions, and I am prepared with remedies, should the need arise.  Most importantly, we know that the Lord is in control, and as we obey Him, we need to trust in Him to take care of us through all these trials.  You may find this earlier post I have written, helpful ~ Protecting Your Mind as a Homemaker

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I don't want to live in fear, but one thing that does bother me is the things those in high places are trying to do while we are distracted by this virus.  For those of you interested, I'm copying some information on what the government has been up to, below.

Copied:
In case you haven't noticed, while everyone is distracted by all the coronavirus fear mongering, THIS is actively happening👇🏼🙄😧

SIX states across America are now in violation of the constitution and have stripped their people of their rights, removing exemptions for vaccines - medical, religious and philosophical. Some of these apply to homeschooling children as well or will eventually as new bills are passed.


👉MISSISSIPPI, CALIFORNIA, WASHINGTON, NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY AND MAINE.👈

➡️ Last month CONNECTICUT passed a bill to remove religious exemptions.

🚫 COLORADO has bill SB 163 going into Senate that removes exemptions and discriminates/mandates review of those choosing not to vaccinate or delay them.

🚫 ILLINOIS has a couple bills, one is to mandate HPV, another bill SB 3668 is to remove religious exemptions and allow for minors to consent on their own to vaccines.

🚫 FLORIDA has a bill SB 64 That would remove religious exemptions and restrict medical exemptions.

➡️ HAWAII passed bill HAR 11-157 that goes into effect soon that mandates the CDC schedule from childcare through college, adding additional vaccines/boosters including FLU and HPV and more for college entry.

🚫 IOWA bill HF 206 is out to remove religious exemptions

🚫 MASSACHUSETTS has a couple bills to remove religious exemptions, get approval from the government for medical and religious exemptions, mandate HPV and allow minors to consent on their own.

There will be more - in your state and added to these states. For homeschooling, for mandates, for consenting minors, for workplace mandates without exemptions, for public notice of vaccination status, for adult vaccine mandates.

IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU ARE FOR OR AGAINST VACCINES - THIS IS ABOUT FREEDOM, choice and the overstepping of the government officials who are in violation of the oaths they took and the Constitution that SAYS this is not legal.

Take a stand, join the fight, raise your voices, put them on notice. Please, before we lose all of our personal and parental rights.

https://www.nvic.org/Vaccin…/state-vaccine-requirements.aspx
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

National Vaccine Information Center is a reliable source of information.  I know some women hate the talk of vaccines and never look into it themselves and have even accused me of being "political" when I post something about them.  But this is not "political"--this is to be informed for the sake of our family's health, and also our freedoms.  Surely this is something important for mothers to do.  No one should be forced to put anything into their children's or their own bodies against their will.

Also, it has been shown that there is a connection between receiving a flu vaccine and being susceptible to coronavirus.





“Receiving influenza vaccination may increase the risk of other respiratory viruses, a phenomenon known as virus interference.”

“Vaccine derived virus interference was significantly associated with coronavirus...”

Letting Teens Get a Job is Not a Good Way to Keep Them Busy



When children become a certain age, some Christian parents think it would be a great idea to allow them to get a job to "keep them busy" and earn some money.  Not only is this popular for boys, but also has become popular for teenage girls.  Why parents want to send their teen daughters out into the world to earn money is beyond me.  It is not in a young woman's nature to hold a job, and certainly doesn't prepare her to be a wife and homemaker.

My parents did this with me, and I had several jobs before I was saved.  One summer before I was even old enough to hold a paying job, they sent me to a camp to be a camp "counselor in training" to "keep me busy", and they even paid me to do it since it wasn't a paying position.  All of these places of employment did me no good and actually caused much harm.

Before parents consider allowing or even encouraging their teens to get a job outside the home, there is much to think about Biblically, especially with concern for their souls and how a place of employment might affect their future.  Jobs outside the home hold a lot of danger and temptation for young people who still are not mature.  It is very similar to sending them off to public school.



Consider the following:

At a job, teens are exposed to and cannot get away from

  • Their boss.  They are at the demand of their manager to be available to do what he/she wants at whatever time he/she wants (though with some restrictions due to their age).  This boss most likely won't care about things like your teen keeping the Lord's Day or having convictions about not doing certain things.
  • Their co-workers.  Co-workers can be the worst "companions" which your teen will naturally have to be around and cannot get away from in the workplace.  If you send your teen off to a job, do not be surprised if they are exposed to filthy language and jokes, drug use, alcohol use, people fornicating, along with the more subtle views of their coworkers that are prevalent in our society, such as feminism, environmentalism, evolution, etc.  Teens are still very much in their formative and immature years and will find it hard to be the only one standing against such evils in our society.
  • Wicked music.  Often in places of business, raunchy, inappropriate music is played, and your teen will have to listen to this all day and cannot get away from it.  Co-workers may also play their own music which your teen may be exposed to.
  • Customers.  Depending on the type of job your teen has, there may often be customers that your teen has to interact with that expose them to things you wouldn't want.
  • Sexual advances.  It is a sad fact that if you send your daughter off to a job, you can expect that someone will at some point act inappropriately toward her.  And in our backwards society, even young girls feel emboldened to make sexual advances towards young men, so you can expect this if you have sons as well.  If you want to keep your children pure until their marriage, sending them off to a place of employment is not a very good way to do it.
  • Technology.  Co-workers these days most likely have smartphones where they freely show other people porn or other wicked photos and videos.  Are you ready for your teen to be exposed to this?  Also, would your teen have other access to computers or other technology where they could search for or even accidentally stumble upon some of the wickedness that is on the internet?  The temptation for teens is very real in this area, and once seen, these things cannot be unseen.
  • Immodesty.  Many places of employment will expose your teen to high levels of immodesty that they wouldn't have to deal with at home.  This is especially problematic for teen boys who are trying to keep themselves pure in thought and deed.
  • Your teen most likely will be asked by coworkers to "hang out" at other times other than the workplace. Don't be surprised if your teen forms an attachment to the people they are around at work, wanting to be around them instead of their family.
There are many dangers of sending your teen out to work in our modern world, and loving, Christian parents would do best to seriously consider these.  Even homeschooling parents who have foreseen the dangers of public school, sometimes send their children out to jobs where they will be exposed to many of the great evils they were seeking to avoid at school.

Even if you send your teen to work at a place that you are familiar with, or even to a place of employment where the owners are professing Christians, you will run into many of the same issues.

What is the solution then?

For young women, I see no reason for her to ever need "job experience", as the Bible has made it clear for what young women are to be concerned with.  
The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. ~Titus 2:3-5



There is no reason for a daughter from a Christian home to get a job outside of the home.  Let her learn beside her mother, the many and varied skills of home-keeping while she has the time on her hands!  It makes no sense for her to wait until she is married to learn these needed skills.  There are always more things to learn, and before she is married, she has the ability to become very good at these things. Older daughters at home can be a tremendous blessing to their mothers.  Daughters at home should be learning contentment within the home sphere and to not be led by selfish desires.

For young men, it is a bit more difficult.  Obviously, young men need to at some point learn to be providers.  At what time this occurs and in what way will greatly depend on the individual young man, his walk with Christ, and his maturity.  But do not be fooled into thinking that your teen boy is beyond being tempted or lured away from his faith by the above mentioned dangers.  Even if he is not led away into a snare, if he's working at a place of employment, he will be exposed to things that will most likely leave an impression on his young heart for the rest of his life.  That's why we must be ever so careful and wise in our decisions.  It would be best if his Christian father had his own business that his son could get involved in.  That way his father can still be with his young man and guide him as he steps out into the working world.  Other options are if your teen son can have his own "business" doing yard work or other such things for neighbors where he is still close to home and has a sense of accountability.  If he has a brother or even his own father to come alongside him, even better, as they can provide each other accountability.



Other ways to keep teens busy are to have a family life that is busy with regular family dinners and family worship.  These are important duties that should be happening every day, and many teens start to miss out on them if they are at jobs in the evenings.  Families can also minister together to other people in many ways, as well as share the Gospel.  Don't forget family walks, outings, and other enjoyable leisure activities.  Doing things together as a family is so beneficial for all family members, and prepares our young teens to one day have their own families and spend time with them instead of leading their separate lives.

Even though this may seem "different", don't cave into the pressure of those around you to do what everyone else is doing or what seems right in their own eyes.  What is most important is our children's souls, and so we must always have their spiritual wellbeing in mind.

Public Schooling (Secular Education) is Disobedience to God



Herein lies the primary reason why Christians should not use government schools: 
Having been educated myself in public school through college, having become a Christian at age 33, and having put our five children through combinations of public and private Christian schools, I can only look back and confess that I was not always obedient in “education.” I wish every day I could relive some of those years and do it “by the Book,” but those days are gone. It is only the present in which we can decide to be obedient in this all-important field we call education. 
The Bible says, “[Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.]” (Proverbs 22:6). There is simply no easy way around the fact that placing our children in an anti-Christian education system is not training them up in the way they should go. Many parents want to say, “But we are giving our children Bible training at home.” Really? Are you going back to all the subject matter your children are taking and giving them a Scripture-based education to correct wrong teaching? If so, you are in essence homeschooling them, so why continue to have them enrolled in the government school? If you mean that you are giving your children moral training, and letting the government school give them “academic” training, you are simply denying them a Christian worldview. Your children are being given an anti-Christian worldview in all subjects at the local government school... 
Dan Smithwick, Founder of Nehemiah Institute
I can think of many other reasons and Scriptures that show why sending our children to the secular school system is disobedience to the Lord, but I do agree that the above quote lists one of the major reasons.  Are we hoping to send our children through the government school system to "get an education" with the hope that they will somehow come out "unscathed" and unharmed?  Several women have shared the consequences of public schooling in the comments here.  Thank you, ladies, for sharing, and may the Lord bless you and save all of your children.

Sending Your Children to School is a Horrible Mistake




"Maybe twenty years from now the Christian parents who are sending their children to government schools will wake up and recognize that this was a horrible mistake - that this was tantamount to child abandonment, child endangerment, and child abuse. But now they defend it as a spiritual thing - 'helping our children to be missionaries.' Little do they realize that they are asking PAGANS to disciple their children to become PAGANS. And it's horrifying." 
-- Phillip Kayser

How very true.  Christian parents need to be aware and wake up to this fact--that when they send their children off to public school (government school), they are sending them off to be indoctrinated by pagans, by those who defy the Lord and have no interest in Him.  Why?  Why send our precious gifts from God to be spiritually slaughtered in their minds and hearts?  Should we not take great care to train them up ourselves?  We need to take great care with our children. They were not given to be missionaries when they are yet children and unconverted.  Even if they've been born again, they are not spiritually fit to take on a school system of unbelief and antagonism towards God.  And Psalm 1 says:
1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Loving Marriage


"The husband should show his love to his wife by covering infirmities; by avoiding occasions of strife; by sweet, endearing expressions; by pious counsel; by love tokens; by encouraging what he sees amiable and virtuous in her; by mutual prayer; by associating with her, unless detained by urgency of business. The pilot who leaves his ship and abandons it entirely to the merciless waves, declares that he does not value it or reckon there is any treasure in it." 
~Thomas Watson, Godly Man's Picture, pg. 156
