Work Makes Me Tired

I know that's a kind of "duh" statement, but I'm just not used to working full days yet. I hit the snooze on my alarm twice this morning. I still got up fairly early and got to school about 40 minutes before the first bell. I'm very frustrated by not being able to print anything. Anything I need to print must be saved in a file type that can be opened on another computer. Then I need to go to another room with a printer in order to print. It's a royal pain. My classes have been good so far. I'm worried about a student that I'll be having in class on Thursday. Right now he's in In-School-Suspension. I sent an assignment to him and he put some really bad things on it. He got in trouble for it and the principal had to come see me about it. They said they are making him re-do the assignment.

There's still not enough hours during the day to get everything done. I'm still having a hard time being productive during my conference periods, but I did get more done today than I did yesterday. I stayed after school and worked until a little after 5:00. At that point I was too tired to concentrate so I came home. I need to do a little more work this evening, but I'm sure I'll be calling it an early night. I think I'll try to take my shower tonight so I don't have to get up as early in the morning.

I don't have anything newsworthy to share. My life is the same old stuff... just back to teaching now. I've got some financial things I need to work out. Being broke stinks again. Well, supper will be ready shortly. I'm going to eat, watch t.v., work on my lesson, take a shower and then head to bed before 10:00. I know that people on think that teachers have it easy with summers off... but when you put in 12+ hours a day devoted to teaching, I think it's well-deserved.

about being broke...I don't wonder why my dear; a new engine, new bed, all the painting supplies you bought for home and school. I was wondering if you had a sugar daddy or something! :o)

I think teachers are under-appreciated and under-paid. Thank you for being a teacher. I hope you get your energy back soon. I'm sure you will once you get back into your routine.

I imagine 12 STEPPERS have sold their souls to the devil. Fortunately, I was saved through the power of Jesus Christ, but for many years had been exposed to the evil “satanic cult” (Alcoholics Anonymous) Wilson (AA) has prostituted himself & deluded many thousands (12 Step Groups) by worshipping the god Moloch (Ba’al the Sacred Bull). It all started with his (Wilson) “drug induced hallucination”….
Here are references to seances and other psychic events….
Bill would…”get” these things …long sentences, word by word would come through….” (22)
, he asked for guidance….The words began tumbling out with astonishing speed….(23)
So A.A.’s 12 Steps were actually received verbatim from the demonic world. It is not surprising, then, that the effect of A.A. upon many of its members is to lead them into occult involvement. In 1958, Wilson wrote to Sam Shoemaker,
Throughout A.A., we find a large amount of psychic phenomena, nearly all of it spontaneous. Alcoholic after alcoholic tells me of such experiences… run nearly the full gamut of everything we see in the books. In addition to my original mystical experience, I’ve had a lot of such phenomenalism myself.(24)
Wilson’s “original mystical experience” was his alleged “conversion” –a classic occult encounter: “Suddenly the room lit up with a great white light. I was caught up into an ecstasy…it burst upon me that I was a free man…a wonderful feeling of Presence, and I thought to myself, ‘So this is the God of the preachers! ‘ A great peace stole over me….”(25)
This was not the “God of the preachers” but the one who transforms himself “into an angel of light” (2 Cor 1l:l4)-a light that often transforms those involved in the occult. The experience was so profound that Wilson never touched alcohol again. Satan would he more than willing to deliver a man from alcoholism in this life if thereby he could ensnare him for eternity and inspire him to lead millions to the same destruction! Wilson joined the Oxford Group and regularly attended its meetings at Calvary Church (NY), pastored by Episcopalian Sam Shoemaker. Shoemaker urged his hearers to “accept God however they might conceive of him….”(26) Here was the origin of Step 3’s “God as we understood him.” God does not respond to those who call upon false gods. Jesus said, “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent” (Jn 17:3). God’s judgment comes upon them “that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Thes 1:8).
I will set my face against that man & his family & will cut off from their people both him & all who follow him in prostituting themselves to Molech. I will set my face against the person who turns to mediums & spiritists to prostitute himself by following them, & I will cut him off from his people. (Leviticus 20: 5, 6)
Moloch the God Ba’al, the Sacred Bull, was widely worshipped in the ancient Near East and wherever Carthaginian culture extended. Baal Moloch was conceived under the form of a calf or an ox or depicted as a man with the head of a bull.
Hadad, Baal or simply the King identified the god within his cult. The name Moloch is not the name he was known by among his worshippers, but a Hebrew Moloch (in the Septuagint Greek translation of the Old Testament), or Molech (Hebrew), is no different than the word Melech or king, transformed by interposing the vowels of bosheth or ’shameful thing’. translation. The written form.
He is sometimes also called Milcom in the Old Testament.
I beg you Steppers to to get out while you can (12 Step) or end up as “Bull Headed”, Steppers!!
Peace Be With You
