21 Rules

The 21 Rules Of This House
by Gregg Harris

1. We obey God.
2. We love, honor and pray for one another.
3. We tell the truth.
4. We consider one another's interests ahead of our own.
5. We speak quietly and respectfully with one another.
6. We do not hurt one another with unkind words or deeds.
7. When someone needs correction, we correct him in love.
8. When someone is sorry, we forgive him.
9. When someone is sad, we comfort him.
10. When someone is happy, we rejoice with him.
11. When we have something nice to share, we share it.
12. When we have work to do, we do it without complaining.
13. We take good care of everything that God has given us.
14. We do not create unnecessary work for others.
15. When we open something, we close it.
16. When we take something out, we put it away.
17. When we turn something on, we turn it off.
18. When we make a mess, we clean it up.
19. When we do not know what to do, we ask.
20. When we go out, we act just as if we were in this house.
21. When we disobey or forget any of the 21 Rules of This House, we accept
the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

I mean, do I really need to put these out so everyone can see them or can we just be decent to each other? Tidy up with a nice attitude? Please?????

Is it just me???

Maybe I've had too much coffee. Maybe I'm just in a bad mood. Is it just me or is it okay to expect the people you live with to clean up after themselves? Is it just me? or is it okay to expect that when you live as a family, you function as a family not every person after themselves? I really think there's a unity involved in living as a family, that each contributes, not for allowance sake but because we live here. We clean because we deserve a clean home, not because company is coming. That chores must be done before playing and when you use something put it away..right away. I don't know...is it just me?

My Baby is 16 Sept 4, 2008

So there it is...the 16th Anniversary has come and gone of me becoming a mother. Wow. Really, that went sonic fast. Now I'm not sure if that's because time flies when your having fun or time flies the older you get. I'm planning on believing its just been that much fun. And it really has. We love Simon. He's a fun kid. He's serious, but he has a really neat sense of humor. Simon was born 6 weeks premature and at nearly 6'1" you'd never know. We're so happy to honor Simon on his birthday and pray God's blessing over him as he grows and matures into an amazing young man.
