Thoughts on Peace and an Announcement

 This is a picture of our kitchen 
(which currently is in process of being rejuvenated.
  We are having the kitchen floors refinished! 
Which comes with much noise, dust and drastic living environment sacrifices. 
 We are banned from the kitchen, pantry and laundry area for the next week.  
Conditions are cramped,
 but the spirit is joyful,
 as with God all things are indeed possible!)

 I share this picture today, as our home is a place of great 'peace'.  Peace doesn't come easily or cheaply.  I find having it be a place of peace and refuge (from the world) comes at the price of making Jesus Lord of each day. 
 It is a commitment that takes sacrifice and commitment.

Lyndon B. Johnson
The Vantage Point:  Perspectives of the Presidency, 1963-1969.
No man should think peace comes easily.  Peace does not come by merely wanting it, or shouting for it, or marching down Main Street for it.  Peace is built brick by brick, mortared by the stubborn effort and the total energy and imagination of able and dedicated men.  And it is built in the living faith that, in the end, man can and will master his own destiny.

 A little announcement:  (a review I will be doing)

 Recently I was given the opportunity to try out an educational program for 6 weeks, in exchange for an honest review.  It couldn't have come at a better time, as my kindergartener, Princess Mercy, has zipped through this year's curriculum and now has extra time during our school day.  I am eager to plug her into this learning program and then share with you my viewpoint on it.  The program looks very promising in regards to valuable learning opportunities.

Plus I love the opportunity to review products!!  Bring it on!!

K5 Learning has an online reading and math program for kindergarten to grade 5 students. I've been given a 6 week free trial to test and write a review of their program. If you are a blogger, you may want to check out their open invitation to write an online learning review of their program.

Your place looks like it doesn't need any sprucing up - but it's exciting nonetheless.

Hey Kimmie,

Thanks for coming by the blog. ^_^ Keep up the fight too. There is a reason, even if we don't see it right away, why these blogs are here.

Things have been rough for about six months now. Could use alot of prayer. Thanks for being a friend.
