Discipline....Switches....and Santa Clause

Adrian Peterson.....   
Minnesota Vikings.....

? ? ? ?    Big news right now!


I can not believe that I'm even attempting to address this!!  This is a topic that COULD get me in trouble with those who have their own opinion on discipline.

Who of us can really pass judgement when in fact none of us have actually seen the whelps or bruises that were reported on Mr. Peterson's child... In NO WAY would I attempt to say that this is a right or wrong case......    Age does have it's own roll to play in this.



Even if the peaches were not clinging to this tree.....I can assure you that I would know that this was a peach tree.  Why?  Because I am all too familiar with the limbs.

Oh wow.....when I was growing up, a switch off of the "old peach tree".....would most certainly make me....walk a straight line!

My grandmother knew how to use one and I can tell you that ALL of us KIDS.......Knew she meant business, when she went to get one off of the tree.

I know that there are some extreme cases and believe me, I have hurt in my heart for kids who have had to endure any kind of abusive punishment.   But, for the most part.......kids are not disciplined ENOUGH.

"He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him."
                                                         Proverbs 13:24

Correction shows us that we are not above reproach and that we are accountable for our actions.

I am a believer that children should NEVER receive lacerations from physical discipline, nor should they suffer from any kind of abusive punishment.  However, we do need to teach them that their own disobedience requires correction!!!  By doing so.....we are teaching our kids how to respect not only their parents, but others who have authority.  RESPECT.......  Kids are not born with it.....Respect MUST be taught!!!

I can't believe that Santa Clause has not been indicted for cruel and unusual behavior!   REALLY...!!    After all, if you're naughty, then it's a bag of switches you get.    I know a lot about this....I once received a "Bag of Switches!"   lol....my dad thought it was extremely funny, and it was!  Turned out to be a WONDERFUL Christmas!  I received lots of packages that year!

Funny thing, the laws of today would have landed my parents, my grandmother, aunts and uncles all in the "PEN" because, they DID use a "Peach limb" on all of us kids!!!  Turns out....we all are fine and our wisdom is great.  We all were taught from the Book of Love and it was called discipline!

Whew....hope I still have friends!

Hugs Y'all......

The Beauty of Nature.....

American Beautyberry.

Scientific Name:  Callicarpa Americana, Callicarpa Japonica
When:  Late Summer, Fall
Where:  East Texas Woods



I have not been out with my camera in quite some time now.  Yesterday was a gorgeous day.....the perfect kind of afternoon to explore the farm.  


How many of us can say that we are "Fond" of Goatweeds?

Not I.......

Goatweed must be a favorite of Bumblebees......I saw many of the dark scary bees, enjoying the sweetness of one weed after another.


Wish I could have snapped more photos like this, but Goatweeds are not very nice to me.....the pollen is overwhelming!


We were a good distance away from these beautiful creatures, which accounts for why my picture is not very clear..    I love watching white tail deer, as they jump fences and gallop across the fields.


God is the creator of all things!

"I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works"

              Psalm 145:5

Life is so good!
