More Ramblings from Me

My daughter is watching a movie called "The Conspirator' which is based on the true story of Mary Surratt who was accused of helping to plot the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. She was found guilty and was hung though she maintained she was innocent. She was the first woman to be executed by the U.S. federal government.
Today there is a man in Georgia on death row Troy Davis who is set to be executed tonight unless he gets a stay of execution. He says he innocent of killing a police officer in 1989 and so do many of his supporters say he is innocent.
He has supporters from all over the globe including the Pope, former President Jimmy Carter and a former FBI director to name a few. So what is the point of my post today?

I don't know if Troy Davis is guilty or if Mary Surrat was guilty. Only they and God knows what really happened. I often wonder how many prisoners over the years have been put to death who were actually innocent?
What does Jesus mean when he tells us not to kill? If someone killed one of my loved ones, would I want the wrong person executed? Would I want the right person executed? Would Jesus want him executed?
Just some thoughts I was having and I just read that the State Supreme court has denied Troy's request for a stay so he will be executed tonight.
May God have mercy on his soul and that of the executioners souls for that matter.

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

(http://thesimplewoman.blogspot.com)
 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…
