What I Love Most About Delaney-August

Favorite Quote: "Firetruck" which I came to find out was the new way to say the "f" word without actually saying it. Needless to say we had a nice long talk about that one, especially since you taught your little brother the lyrics to the song.

What has impressed me most about you this month: You are finally willing to open up a little bit about what is going on in your world to me. There have been some new developments that I realized were happening with you that were not healthy so we had along talk about it and we came to some decisions to  help you out. Despite the fact that I feel you are pulling away from your faith-at least in certain areas-I am always pleased when I hear that you spoke to someone about Christ, or stood up for someone who was defending Christ. I also always get good reports back from all your friends parents about how well mannered and helpful you are and how you are a joy to be around. Definitely cannot argue that one :)

Scripture Verse: 
Psalms 34:24, “Though he stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand.”

Psalm 56:13, “For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.

Jude 24, “To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy”
Where I hope to see you grow: You are holding all your worries, stress and cares deep inside you right now. I really wished that you would learn to give them to God and share them openly with friends of faith that can help you through this difficult season in your life. You do not wish to talk to me about it, and although I wish you would, I can understand why you do not want to. My only hope for you is that you know you are not in this alone. You have a wonderful heavenly Father that loves you and adores you and to Him you are perfectly made and wonderfully created in His image!!! All the trials you walk through He is with you, if you will only call on Him and learn to lean on Him and not your strength.

Favorite thing we are doing this month:
1. Tennis: Oh yea thats right. Ms. I hate tennis, actually enjoyed herself when she realized she could play and was not going to get hurt. Now you actually like to play. Amazing, I know!
2. 1st Day School: Yeppers its that time of the year again. you are so ticked off at me that I am not homeschooling you again this year, but have instead enrolled you in a charter school. You are not pleased with me so the month has been difficult. You were mad that it started 2 weeks before public school, that it gets out later than public school, the food, too many kids, too far to walk, its the same school Drake goes to and on and on and on you went. There was simply no pleasing you these first couple of weeks. You are bond and determined to make it so miserable for us both that I pull you out and homeschool you again. Hopefully it will get better.


Jonny Diaz lyrics : "More Beautiful You"

Little girl fourteen flipping through a magazine
Says she wants to look that way
But her hair isn't straight her body isn't fake
And she's always felt overweight
Well little girl fourteen I wish that you could see
That beauty is within your heart
And you were made with such care your skin your body and your hair
Are perfect just the way they are
There could never be a more beautiful you
Don't buy the lies disguises and hoops they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you
Little girl twenty-one the things that you've already done
Anything to get ahead
And you say you've got a man but he's got another plan
Only wants what you will do instead
Well little girl twenty-one you never thought that this would come
You starve yourself to play the part
But I can promise you there's a man whose love is true
And he'll treat you like the jewel you are
So turn around you're not too far
To back away be who you are
To change your path go another way
It's not too late you can be saved
If you feel depressed with past regrets
The shameful nights hope to forget
Can disappear they can all be washed away
By the one who's strong can right your wrongs
Can rid your fears dry all your tears
And change the way you look at this big world
He will take your dark distorted view
And with His light He will show you truth
And again you'll see through the eyes of a little girl
