School's started but am I ready

Lord, help me this year to plan well -- not to overload. Help me with a do-able, overseeable schedule and help me to plan and stick to fun as well. Lord, You see the character issues that need work. Help us to properly shape those 'characters' for Your Kingdom.
Thank You, Lord!
In Jesus' name...

Jungle Woman

There she was, crawling through the thick, murky underbrush, trying hard to stay on top of things. Why her, she wondered, brushing her sweaty strands aside. Elbow-by-elbow, knee-by-knee, she pressed onward, forcing her way through dead bodies of insects, some intact, some 'not so much'. Foraging on, finding a stick, she began hacking her way through. Somehow, someway, she determined to see daylight and fresh air again. If only there was someone who'd heard her frantic call, someone to rescue her. Wielding the stick like a mighty sword, she quickly flung debris far and wide. Little by little, she began to progress toward an opening. Yes! The path was widening! Gulping in deep breaths, she could tell there was fresh air ahead! She was almost home. Agilely, the sojourner deflected more animal bodies, more copious sharp, sometimes unimaginable objects, she steeled herself onward. One...last..."hi-YA"! Yes! She saw the light! Sucking in her breath, she exhaled slowly, savoring the moment. Daylight had broken - there she was just before the open door. Heaving one last sigh, as she sat down with a feeling of utter satisfaction. She HAD made it unscathed! She was victor! Free at last, thank the Lord Almighty, she was free at last!

Moral of the story:

If young Reaganmeister ever leaves a mess like what she found under his bed again, she vowed to hang him by his toenails and feed him ONLY his dreaded tomatoes and cooked green beans and peas!!!

spoiled it again, God, didn't ya?

spoiled it again, God, didn't ya?

We were sitting watching a movie as a family that was MOSTLY ok, but had some cursing, raunchy sex scenes. We fast forwarded, there was even some stuff about casting spells -- 'just a little bit'...again we fast forwarded. We were of course, saddened that the movie producers had to add that crud, but satisfied that we didn't watch it....
But, said that still small voice, 'you paid for it - by buying or renting that movie, you actually told them you are supporting that with your money. Hollywood is about money...'

God ever ruin that stuff for you? My family is now thinking, mom is a spoilsport. I don't answer to them; when I close my eyes here for the last time, I stand before the One who sacrificed everything...
So far, I'm thinking I've not passed the test...

Glad, He's given me another chance. Wonder what would happen if we went to a theatre and saw this or blasphemy and actually got up, went out and asked for a refund if Hollywood and the local theatre might ask for changes...
