June Blessings

Psalm 121 1- 2

There were so many blessings during the month of June….almost too numerous to count. I share these monthly blessings posts to not only remind myself of YHWH/God’s goodness; but also to encourage others to truly trust YHWH/God. In my May Blessings post, I shared a testimony about a conversation with YHWH/God; and how He had blessed me with help three days later. A day after that (which was June 1st), YHWH/God blessed me with more help. To say that I do NOT enjoy cooking is a DRASTIC understatement. In my heart, I wanted a chef to just cook dinner. It was the meal that I least looked forward to making each day. Again, during my conversation with the Most High, I didn’t complain; I recited Psalm 121:1 to Him; and thanked Him for being my helper. Not only did God send me a Chef; but one who could make Caribbean food (which is an anomaly in the area where I live). In my eyes, not only did YHWH/God bless me; but He also delivered me from having to cook dinner and lunch. The Chef makes so much food; that it has been more than enough for dinner and weekends. I just praise YHWH/God, because He’s interested in every detail of our lives; as well as truly gives us the desires of our hearts. He also gives us exceedingly beyond what we ask. I just praise and thank Him!

Another blessing during the month of June was home renovations. I was vacuuming the rug in my living room; and thought to myself: “This rug needs to be cleaned.” I then thought to myself: “This whole house needs an overhaul.” The very next day, my husband came home with a new living room set. He asked me my thoughts. I responded that I LOVED it! (My husband has great taste; so I totally trust Him to select things for our home). From there, we have been upgrading each room. We’re not done yet; but we’re well on our way.

Romans 13 8

The blessing in all of this is two-fold. YHWH/God takes care of me and my household, because of our covenant relationship. I rely on Him alone to provide for me. There’s no pressure on my husband to get things for me. YHWH/God will put things on His heart; and He does it. The second part of the blessing is that we are able to pay for everything in cash. Once our hearts took hold of the revelation of Romans 13:8, we made the quality decision to stay out of debt; and trust YHWH/God for everything.

Perhaps the greatest blessing of June is that one of the contractors working in our home gave his life to YHWH/God. On the day that it happened, my husband was upstairs witnessing to him; while I was downstairs praying for him. I just praise YHWH/God! One more treasure for Him.

There were so many more blessings; but I don’t want this post to get super long. Thank you for reading. Please share some of the ways YHWH/God has blessed you; and may He bless you even more. Have an excellent weekend!

The Lesson

Luke 6 38

My husband had just finished his lunch; as he and I sat at the dining room table. My 7 year old son had come downstairs to the dining room and showed his money to Papa. My husband asked him, how much did he have? To which my son responded: $1.50. My husband asked him if he would give him all of his money, except one cent. My son paused and said no. “I’ll only have one penny if I gave you all my money.” My husband responded: okay. He then called our second son (6 years) down to the dining room and asked him for all of his money. My second son said no. My husband responded: okay. He then called our oldest daughter (4 years)  to the dining room and asked her the same question; to which she responded yes, and gladly gave him her dollar. He called our baby girl (2 years) downstairs to the dining room and asked her for all of her money; and she too responded yes and gave it to him. My husband said to the girls: “Because you gave me all that you had, I’m going to give you back your dollar and another one.” The girls rejoiced and said thank you  papa! He then said: “I only added a dollar; but I like multiplication; so I’m going to give you another dollar.” The girls rejoiced again and thanked their papa. He then said: “Because you said thank you, I’m going to give you another dollar.” The girls again rejoiced and thanked papa.” Finally, my husband said: “Because you cheerfully gave me all that you had, I’m going to give you another dollar.” The girls celebrated once again; and cheerfully thanked their papa.

2 Corinthians 9 7

I sat there the entire time as I watched this biblical lesson being played out before my very eyes. My husband and I got up from the table; and went into the foyer to look at the new chairs that we had just bought. The girls followed us into the foyer; while my sons stayed at the table thinking. After we finished in the foyer, my husband, the girls and I went into the kitchen. I explained to the boys that they had just witnessed and been a part of a biblical lesson. I shared with them the time that YHWH/God told me to give away my entire check. It was very uncomfortable for me; but I did it anyway. Two weeks later, I had received a debt-free vehicle. I explained that it’s good to give your normal tithes and offerings; but there will be times when the Father asks you to give more. It’s only because He wants to give more to you.

Psalm 32 8

This week’s declaration is based on Psalm 32:8 and is: YHWH/God will instruct and teach me in the way I should go;  He will counsel me with His loving eye on me. Last night I asked God to give me instruction concerning a matter. I had a dream and then Psalm 32:8 was the first verse my eyes were drawn to this morning. I was beyond delighted because God is so very faithful in the plethora of ways that He answers our prayers.

June Unschooling Adventures

105770245_1008695106268063_8985849187379680677_n

June was another month of awesome learning adventures for the B3 Life Learners. Since we spend time at the lake each week; we began exploring and learning about invasive species that damage the ecosystem of the lake, such as: Eurasian watermilfoil, curlyleaf pondweed, zebra mussel, asian clam and spiny water fleas. We visited Cooper’s Cave, which inspired James Fenimo Cooper to write, The Last of the Mohicans in 1825. The kids weren’t too impressed with the history.  They however, sure did enjoy running across the bridge and climbing on the platform over the cave to point out different birds that flew by; as well as looking to see if they could spot any fish or animals. After leaving there, because my four year old had to use the bathroom, we went across the street to the park. However, the bathrooms were closed.  I pulled out my trusted little “Go Girl” and an empty water bottle; and my girl relieved herself with no problems. The kids then went rolling, running and jumping down a hill. We then went to check out the big flock of geese. When it was time to go, they were all complaining of being itchy. My 6 year old asked; why is my skin so itchy? I told him that the grass made it itchy. His response: how? I said, that’s a great question! We will look it up; and we did….after they took baths of course! We found out that grass has serrated edges on each blade that makes microscopic cuts in the skin; and secretes an irritating fluid that makes us itchy.

Aside from these adventures; we attended my niece’s graduation party; where the kids got to interact and play with older cousins, friends and family members. They learned to play ladder toss, played with six week old  puppies Jax and Duke; and played with various toys. We go out on the boat every week. So this past week; my 6 year old told my husband that he wanted to drive the boat; so he did for a while. The other three also drove the boat. Other adventures and activities that the kids engaged in during the month of June was washing the car, watching a couple of bees pollinate flowers, picnicking, drawing, painting and practicing their musical instruments.  The kids also played with one neighbor’s bunny; and another neighbor’s cat.

We continued our regular activities like reading through the book of Matthew, listening to the wonder bible at night, cleaning; as well as learning through gaming on ABCya, Khan Academy Kids and Starfall. My seven year old (and I) learned about interjections through playing a game on Starfall. I didn’t know that there was such a thing; until he started playing that game. He was also learning how to read building plans. My kids draw, write and read nearly every day; as well as bike, walk, run, play and explore outdoors.  There was so much packed into this month that this post would be a book, if I wrote everything. In a nutshell, the kids are progressing and learning quite well. To see a video of some of the adventures, click here. Thanks for reading! YHWH/God bless you and have an excellent week!

This week’s declaration is based on Romans 12:19 and is: Vengeance is God’s. He will repay.  As I look at the turmoil that is going on in our nation, I ask the following questions: What am I seeing? What is at the source of what I am seeing? What does the scripture say about what I am seeing? What does YHWH/God want me to do about what I am seeing? For every problem that we will ever encounter in life, YHWH/God has already provided a solution. I see it time and time again in scripture. If we look at the story of the Children of Israel, we see that they were enslaved, mistreated, and lived in anguish. However, when the vengeance of the Lord came; it all but wiped out Egypt; and if you read the account in the book of Jasher, you’ll see that one of the Pharoahs who treated them so harshly, was plagued with a flesh rotting disease for ten years, died, and was buried dishonorably. Trust YHWH/God that He has everything figured out; and we do not have to explode, destroy things and communities, or hurt people, because of a perceived injustice or weariness. No matter how unjust a situation might seem; allow YHWH/God…..the Judge, Lawgiver and King (Isaiah 33:22) to make a righteous ruling and enact vengeance. YHWH/God’s word far outweighs our perceptions, attitudes and emotions.

The mobility exercise of the week is hip circles. You’re going to stand up tall, with your feet about hip distance apart; and shoulders down away from your ears. You’re going to engage your core by pulling your navel into your spine. You’re going to soften your knees and then make circles below the waist with your pelvis. See a demonstration here. As always, have an excellent rest of your week and I’ll see you soon!

The Snare Of The Mouth — Pure Glory

If we truly understood how our words impact our lives; we would only say what YHWH/God says. This is such a great post on this subject from Pure Glory.

by Apostle Gabriel Cross Recently, I was reading (Proverbs 6:2)”Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art caught by the words of your mouth.” The word snare means entrapped or barbed. Then the Holy Spirit began to show me some words of entrapment (inner vows) in my heart. One was, “here […]

Grateful for Fathers

HappyFather's Day!

I honor and bless all of  the wonderful fathers!!! I thank YHWH/God for you; and the blessing that you are to society. I am also very grateful to the Heavenly Father for my husband. He is a representation of YHWH/God in the earth. It is an honor to watch Him consider the Most High throughout the day, every day. He meditates on the word almost constantly; and is always excited to share revelations that the Father has given him. This is why Fathers are so important in the home. They are the foundation. They are the priests. Children learn who they are by observing and imitating their father. Fathers pray, protect, provide (love, leadership, discipline, guidance, identity, forgiveness, mercy, grace, finances) and so much more.

I did not grow up with my father in my home; so it’s extra special to me to watch how my husband interacts with our children. He hugs and kisses them….holds conversations with them…. plays with them….disciplines them when necessary….teaches them….explains things to them….challenges them….and he’s so very open and honest with them. I love that two of his biggest desires in life is to be a friend of YHWH/God’s and to do everything that he was placed in the earth to do. He is  a very loyal person, full of integrity, a cheerful giver, a lover of God & family, compassionate, brilliant, full of wisdom, knowledge and understanding, obedient to God, humble, bold….and everything that I want my children to be and more. I couldn’t have imagined such an excellent father for my children; but then there’s YHWH/God…..who’s always doing exceedingly above all we could ask or imagine.  Thank you Father, for such an awesome and loving Father and husband!

“I Am Bringing Down the GIANT OF INJUSTICE” Lana Vawser, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia — Sound Of Heaven

This is a dream I had in January that I released as a prophetic word. Because of what we are seeing right now in the earth, I am reposting this word and I am crying out for, decreeing and declaring this unprecedented, accelerated demonstration and manifestation of the Lord’s justice in the earth. Prophetic Word […]
