larin*offerings

Hmm. Yes. Well. What an inoccuous start to blogging. I'm trying to simply post a comment to someone I might know and here I am with a blog. Very interesting. What was it the Python's used to say--oh yes, "And now for something completely different!" A blog in my life.

Who am I? I am a Christian, I am a wife and mom (of the stay-home type, although we do so many things that I'm rarely at home. Ironic, isn't it?), I am a volunteer and I am an artistic type. I work mostly in the altered style, using and mixing papers, fibers, paints, stamps and found objects. Much of my work is inspired by and contains Scripture, so this is my offering to the Lord and to you, the viewer.

Blessings to you! :-)

Bravo to you, for having the courage to be a stay at home Mom, the most important profession in the world. (I also include stay at home Dads in that, I'm not sexist, but one parent should be there for the kids.)

It is so important that kids be raised by their parents, instead of by strangers. Where else do they get their moral compass?

If people just really examined their finances, and all the ways that they save if one parent stays home, including tax deductions, transportation costs and the cost of food because you eat less conveinence foods, you eat better for less, they would probably find that one partner in the mariage was working for about $50 per week.

God bless and good luck;
Mike

Mike, thanks for the encouragement. I couldn't agree more with everything you said. We do give up some of the extras that our pop-oriented culture says we need, but we don't miss it much. ;-) I still get people who tell me they couldn't stand staying home--they were bored and I'm left wondering "how?" There's so much to life! As for the moral compass thing--obviously the kids end up with a pretty weak one--just look at the news on any given evening. But I'll save that for another day when I've got more time to really let loose (insert diabolical laughter here!)! Anyway, thanks. --LaRinda :-)
