Fall-in-Love-at-First-Si

Every girl should strive to be a sensible girl. Being sensible means being clear thinking. Being sensible demonstrates maturity and wisdom.

25 LESSONS FROM 25 YEARS OF HOMESCHOOLING

25-things-you-should-start-doing-now-youre-25-205-body-image-1422622396

Everyone makes mistakes. Everyone has regrets. All people, when looking back over their life choices, wish that they could go back and make changes that would alter the outcome of those choices.

As a homeschool mom who recently finished educating her last child, I have spent a great deal of time reflecting on my homeschool experience. I’ve thought somewhat about the good things I’ve done, but mostly I’ve thought about my mistakes, the things I wish I could go back and improve in my children’s educational experience.

MY LIFELONG AVERSION TO PEOPLE

stock-hiding-behind-bush-2

People.

Most of my life I have lived to avoid them. I go to matinees at theaters so there will be no one in front or in back of me. I take advantage of early bird specials at restaurants not for the deals, but to escape the crowds. And I wake up early to go shopping for the sole purpose of purchasing my groceries before the throngs descend. Continue reading “MY LIFELONG AVERSION TO PEOPLE”

SINGING FOR THE SICK AND DYING

Nurse caring about old woman lying in bed

During my husband’s ministry as a pastor to the Hispanic community, we became friends with an elderly woman named Magda. Magda was an outwardly tough, no nonsense lady who had a tender heart and an inspiring faithfulness to her Lord. So when we learned that Magda was in the hospital dying, we immediately went to see her. Recognizing the need to comfort Magda in her final hours, my husband asked our daughter Sarah to sing to Magda. Continue reading “SINGING FOR THE SICK AND DYING”

From time to time our family has what we call “A Pena Family Outing.” A Pena Family Outing is an event that is either simple and mundane, or that goes awry in some way, but is looked upon fondly (and sometimes unfondly) as an adventure. We have had many of these adventures, but one in particular comes to mind at Christmas time.

unknown-3

It seems like there are a lot of articles floating about the internet these days about that horrid group of young folk labeled “millennials.” One article in particular summed up the atrocities of this odious group of upstarts, saying millennials have killed 29 things in the year 2016 alone. Among the 29 items listed were handshakes, bars of soap, the wine, hotel,and napkin industries, the Olympics, McDonald’s Mcwrap and Big Mac, Canadian tourism, the Mexican internet, democracy, the EU, and all of America!
