Happy New Year and 2011 Goals

I can't believe it's 2011 already! It seems like we were just celebrating 2010.
Each year I try to list goals for the year. I don't always succeed but I hope to accomplish what the Lord wants me to do. I don't make New Year's resolutions but I make goals instead.
So here are  at least 10 goals and they are not in any particular order.
  1. Read my Bible and devotions each day.
  2. Read few pages of Martyr's Mirror each week.
  3. Pray daily for my family and extended family members.
  4. Encourage my children to read their Bible more.
  5. Sew at least two items for gifts.
  6. Sew a dress for myself.
  7. Not to get so shy when sharing about why I  wear a head covering in obedience to 1 Cor 11:3-15.(that is a hard one)
  8. Have the study guide lesson for the Sunday sermon that Pastor teaches on completed each week
  9. Share Christ with several people throughout the year.
  10. Truly commit to prayer a particular desire of my heart that I just haven't spend as much in prayer about as I should.
I don't know how well I will do with these goals especially number 10 because I am being hit with resistance with some family members and I'm not sure what the Lord's will is for this particular desire. I will really need to seek the Lord in all these goals and be willing to accept His will and not my own.

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"

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…
