Yesterday, Malia made herself endeared all the more. She is so observant and always carrying on gibberish conversations with me about this and that thing. We have alot in common, it seems. She doesn't try to get too much attention and she has a very short temper. She was the very last to get a one on one, with Ms. Jayne. She grabbed my face, instead of her bottle and put her finger on my chinhair. You know what she was saying. How come you haven't pulled at this one? What a little observer? She knew that I had gotten all the rest of them and she kept her finger right there until we finished the feeding.
Don't miss little moments like that with child number 3 or 4 because you think you know them all!

We miss a little something in competition, when we try to play and do things minus a royal expectation. Our President means a lot to us. He might frequent a game or so,etc. But today when the Spanish King was there to watch the youngster vanquish her seasoned elder competitor, there was a marked improvement to her game. The advantage was palpable. The first set, they were equals. There was no age to them. There was no physical prowess to overcome. Mental confidence has always been Muguruza’s strong suit and Venus’ weakness.
England was a neutral playing field. Neither had a home court advantage. Both had as hard a grooming for the final and their performances were showing a common ratio of winners to errors. The stats promised an interesting match. The royal advantage proved a major factor and not an incidental one….

You have always been Quivercly Quizzical. You always ask me question about my fertility of children and of thought. This is today's answer...
Open thy doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy cedars.￼
Zechariah 11:2 Howl, fir tree; for the cedar is fallen; because the mighty are spoiled: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan; for the forest of the vintage is come down. ￼ Zechariah 11:3 There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds; for their glory is spoiled: a voice of the roaring of young lions; for the pride of Jordan is spoiled.Z
echariah 11:10 And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people. ￼ Zechariah 11:11 And it was broken in that day: and so the poor of the flock that waited upon me knew that it was the word of the LORD.How God grafted us in, from Israel He cut! The specifics of God’s pruning method in grafting us in. The beauty of the Lord was cut in two. Bands was also cut and the gentiles were grafted between these two parts of God’s self. 30 pieces of Silver? When we care not for the poor, we are acting like the Jews did, when JEsus was crucified. He was God's most beautiful and banded branch of Himself. God cutting off of himself to let us in, is a most precious thought. I decided to try to root some of my precious plants and see, if they will reroot in good soil. Maybe?

Listening to different kinds of Christian people, some who have been taught a sensitivity to conscience, that I haven't matured to yet, has become refreshing. Is the truth something that we beat out of people in an investigatory tone? Is it a beautiful thing that a man is speaking according to his conscience and taking his time to answer, using words that are "accurate to his recollections". Do we give people that right? The right to answer the question, in good conscience. What does that mean? Are we learning in our interactions to be more honest in our dealings, or to bulldoze a man's conscience to get at truth? Some truths need a bulldozer. Some truths need a tweezer. Learn how to listen and request information that will grow you and your "inquisitee".This is not the Spanish Inquisition!
Ananias and Saphira were killed because of their lying to the Holy Spirit and the fear of God should be developed in our use of words. When we have found a person who has great ability of speaking in good conscience, we should be more ready to listen and to hear how to do the same. Even if it takes a long time.
