Oh the Joy of Harvest and More

Yesterday Kaitlyn and I harvested some of our mini pumpkins and we are so excited. This is our first year doing pumpkins and we have many other plants to harvest such as peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes.
We are grateful for the harvest of our first year of gardening. God is good.

I wish it were time for our orange tree but it won't produce fruit until next year. We are definitely excited about that! Our family loves oranges and I can see smoothies in our future!

Lately in our neighborhood I've seen an increased numbers of skateboarders and bicycles. It would appear that with the high cost of gas many people are using alternate modes of transportation. Many of these boarders are older dads in their late thirties and early forties.

I honestly don't blame these people. If it were possible for us, we would definitely use bikes or skateboards to get around. It would look rather funny though for a family of skateboarders to show up for church on Sunday mornings. LOL
Our pastor and his family live just a few blocks from church so they cut down on their gas usage by walking to church except when the weather is bad.

Awhile back I posted about my faith being tested about an issue that I and a family member share.
She assured me that we were correct about what we believe because the Bible confirms it.

My concern was about children and their salvation. I do not believe that a young child who dies is going to hell because he or she didn't accept Christ into their heart as their Lord and Savior before they passed away. We as Christian parents however are to instruct our children about the Lord and what He did on the cross. We need to be godly examples to them.

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…
