Sorry It's Been Awhile

I can't beleive how lax I am when it comes to updating my blog. I really have no excuse so anyway, life here at the Shea Homestead has been good. We have had several colds go through our house but for the most part the Lord has been faithful.

I'm crocheting a shawl for a sister at church who lost her husband. It's taking me awhile to finish it but hopefully it will be done before the end of the month. I have two others I need to crochet or I might get brave and knit them.

I wish you all could join us on Sunday mornings for church. Our pastor is doing a wonderful teaching on the book of Acts. We get study guides to go with the sermon he will preach on for the Sunday.
In my studying of the book of Acts I'm thinking Paul must have been a very interesting person and probably a bit long winded. Oh but to have been there when he was preaching about Jesus Christ! Can you imagine being there when Paul was doing this? I can hear him now giving testimony of the Lord and people getting saved!  Oh that would have been glorious!


  1. We are studying in 1Peter in our Sunday school class right now, yesterday was chapter 2:1-12; so thought provoking being living stones, I had never really looked at that before.
    I hope to find one of the sisters at church who can teach me how to chrochet; I don't know that I can learn from a video or the computer, I need to watch someone. Plus, I am left-handed & I have fo sit in front of them like a mirror. Here's hopin I can learn something new @ 50:)

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…
