Prayer of Repentance

We make an alter where we are so that we can come to you, Lord, and ask for mercy. We are a nation founded to promote Christian liberties and values and to glorify God. We are failing at both. We confess our sins, repent of our wrong doing and ask for MERCY. Like the prophet…

The Favorite: Post-it Note #139

I was at the dentist this week and the hygienist asked me about my family.  Since we’ve just come through Christmas she wanted to know HOW you buy Christmas gifts for 5 kids.  I told her that you have to stop thinking in such a way that you want everything to be fair.  A 4-year-old…

The Worst Mom Award…Post-it Note #59

I have 5 kids.  Each kid has a different personality and temperament.  Some are what we might call “high-maintenance”.  With 4 daughters the word “drama queen” has been used on occasion in the Post household.  What is interesting (or painful) is when the personality of one of those kids rubs against your personality.  It’s a…

The Spanking…Post-it Note #58

When I was a kid my parents took very literally and very seriously Proverbs 22:15 which says: “Folly (foolishness) is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline will drive it far away.”  And I must have been pretty foolish (or mouthy) because the rod of discipline, a.k.a. “Daddy’s Belt” was…

Sticking Out Like a Sore Thumb: Post-it Note #49

My family and I have been on a Paleo-type cleanse.  Sounds frightful doesn’t it?  Basically that means that we are eating fresh whole fruits and veggies, clean meat, eggs and nuts and have cut out sugar, artificial stuff, processed or refined foods (about 150%!!! of the American diet!) most grains and dairy.  It’s been an…

Post-it Note #29: Bring Down the Hammer!

I have a child that has been particularly………..how should I say it?…………..irritating lately.  I’m not sure what the deal is, but she has been especially mouthy and disobedient the last few days and stirring up trouble with her brother and sisters on every hand.  Dad has been out-of-town too, so I have had to do…

Post-it Note #21: Destructive Criticism

I’ve been trying to write this post for a couple of days now.  I started it Wednesday morning and here it is late on Thursday night and I’m still working on it.  Maybe it will be done by Friday morning.  Maybe.  Sometimes it’s hard to say what really needs to be said.  The words get…

Post-it Note #18: All Tangled Up

I have a 5-year-old daughter that is the sweetest of the sweet.  She has the most sensitive little heart.  When we rescued a dog from the pound she cried for 2 days because Lucas didn’t know where his Mommy and Daddy were.  When the baby bird fell out of the tree and the dogs killed…
