Fields White To Harvest

 

 

Lord, I thought I knew you,

   but know the winds have changed.

Tossed away, will you find me?

   Can still , my heart be sustained?

Just me and you when things were new,

then the season's storms blew by.

   Did I forget to worship you?

 

Will you come, Lord Jesus to gather us- your sheep.

   For the days grow long and still,

If we watch and wait, will you hear us yet-

   Can we stand strong to do you will?

 

 The wheat has been blowing in that field,

   While the laborers are so few.

What then, now are we waiting for?

   Can hardened hearts become like new?

 

 Safely can we stay behind you,

   as we march with your trumpet sound?

Or- have we stayed and hid so long now,

   That our roots dry underground?

 

 I pray Lord that you will find me.

   I pray not to be ashamed.

I seek you when it's early Lord.

   I pray not to fall away.

 

So come Lord Jesus come quickly-

   The terrible day is at hand.

I pray we'll all be steadfast.

   So you may strengthen our spirits ,

as we stand.

 Response from Christopher Calvin Reid on Bentley for Governor fb page--"He already voted against this issue and has never been a supporter of common core. I don't think it's fair to say he has been quiet on this issue. He just is focused on a significant number of issues facing the state and can't effectively govern if he dedicates all of his time to defeating common core. The legislature has more influence over this matter.

Responsed:  "IF innocent children like this aren't #1 on his priority then you need to please show him this and I believe the good man he is-- will focus on this! Has he seen this picture and the story?

so far no response...

Joint Statement of Early Childhood

on the Common Core Standards Initiative
Issued by the Alliance for Childhood

WE HAVE GRAVE CONCERNS about the core standards for young children now being written by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. The draft standards madepublic in January conflict with compelling new research in cognitive science, neuroscience, child development, and early childhood education about how young children learn, what they need to learn,
and how best to teach them in kindergarten and the early grades..

Please dig in and study the  Common Core approach is very troubling to parents as they are seeing growing stress in many children.  Here's perspective from Mental health professional Joan Landes:

 

 

Not only are students as young as six being taught how to manipulate others by using emotionally evocative words, the childrens’ cognitive processes are also being programmed to think in emotionally reactive ways. Here’s how it works (as documented in Oak Norton’s YouTube video):

Step One: Your child is told he is responsible for solving a social problem at school.

Step Two: Your child is instructed to develop a communication to you, his parents, which will create a motivation to act.

Step Three: Your child is taught the power of emotionally triggering words to foment anger, fear, and other reactions.

Step Four: Your child thinks, writes, discusses or role plays using these provocative words to create emotional reactivity. Perhaps he even uses these techniques on you, the parent.

Step Five: The teacher assesses your child’s mastery of this skill set and praises or punishes accordingly.

Step Six: Your child remembers and retains this ability to manipulate others in the future.

But here’s the sobering part: Your child has also programmed his own thoughts to be emotionally reactive and triggered.

As a clinical mental health therapist, I am trained to assess, diagnose and treat people of all ages who are suffering from mental illness. One of the best-researched, evidence-based therapies that are employed by psychotherapists world-wide is to detect and replace cognitive distortions. What’s a cognitive distortion? It is a dysfunctional way of thinking that often results in distress for clients. Some examples include black and white thinking, magnification or minimization, filtering, and one of the most common and damaging: emotional thinking.  Rest here--http://psychouttheopposition.wordpress.com/2013/12/08/common-core-aligns-with-cognitive-distortions/

 

Answers to Common Core Counter-attacks

At least two counter-attacks are directed at people who are fighting for the repeal of Common Core. Make sure you dodge the blows and make some points in the process.

Attack 1: “Show me what particular standards you don’t like—I want specifics,” or the variation, “I’ve read the standards and don’t find anything objectionable – have you read the standards?”

Short Answer 1: “It’s a waste of time to dissect the current standards today because they can be changed tomorrow without our approval. That’s one of the many huge problems with these standards.”  Read more here
