Reflections of 2010

 This has been an interesting year for our family and an heartbreaking year for some other families we know. We have had our faith tested with Tim not working, getting sick from CO because our furnace malfunctioned,various serious illnesses and Tim's surgery. God has been very faithful and He has brought us through.

I think of the various losses that some have gone through this year. For me the one I remember most was the loss of several members and extended family members of the Esh family on March 26th. They left such a legacy and I try not to be sad when I listen to their music for now they are singing to the Lord.
You can learn more about the Eshes here and order their music. This website was set up after the car accident that took their lives

A lot of good things have happened too. We got a new pastor at our church who is just awesome. He is an excellent teacher and we are so blessed to have him and his family at our church.  He and his precious wife are expecting their third blessing in May. It will be fun having a new baby in our congregation again.

All my daughters are now teen or preteens at ages 10, 14 and 16. My 16 year old dd got her learner's permit and it anxious to learn to drive. It reminds me that she is growing up and getting to be more independent.

Tomorrow Lord willing I will reach a milestone in my life. I turn 50 years old! It's hard to believe but I'm rather excited. I won't be sporting a red hat or a red veiling. I will probably wear my one and only purple cape dress.

I want to wish all who read this a Happy New Year! I pray the Lord will bless you and keep you safe in the coming New Year.

WARNING: Some Parts of This Post Is Controversial!

I wonder what would happen if men had a march similar to the recent women's marches demanding their right not to be exposed to half dressed women in the workplace, in church, on the street, on magazine covers, etc? What if they marched demanding their right to be treated like men and not a child by their wives and girlfriends? To be allowed to be a dad instead of their child being killed in the womb? To not be portrayed on television and movies as idiots?

What would happen if they  wore (like inappropriately shaped hats the women wore on their heads to prove their womanhood ) on their heads inappropriately  shaped hats to prove their manhood?

 Satan has been telling lies to women ever since The Garden:

" I can wear this see through dress! It's my body!"

"It's his problem if my low cut blouse causes him to lust"

"It's not a baby, it's tissue! It's my body!"

"Motherhood degrades women"

"We don't  need to submit to …

25 Years Ago...

I married the love of my life. Back then I couldn't see 25 years into the future. I never imagined having three daughters.  We didn't anticipate struggles on both our parts but we are so grateful for the way the Lord has brought us through. Things are not perfect between but we continue to trust God and know that He can work things out.
And now for your giggling pleasure, here are a few pictures from our wedding. This was before I was into a conservative plain lifestyle. Sorry for the blurriness.

For Today

 Looking out my window  ...It has stopped snowing. It's been a mixture of snow, hail and rain today and it is very cold and windy out.
I am thinking... about whether I should prayerfully and gently confront a sister in the Lord who is being dishonest about something, though I hoped I had imagined it, sadly today I discovered it was true.☹
I am thankful... We made it home safely today after going into town and getting caught in the snowstorm. God is good!
One of my favorite things... is to read Keepers at Home magazine

I am wearing... a purple flowered dress covered up by my apron and black slippers

I am creating... well I will be sewing up some hanging veil head coverings. Some of the ones I have are getting stained. My middle daughter suggested I save my white veils for church or other church related activities. My husband suggested that I keep the stained ones for when I clean the house. They are so wise in their suggestions…
