"Black" Friday Indeed

Greed! Materialism! Gotta have it at any cost! That is what Black Friday is really all about. It's I'm going to get what I want and if you get in my way, watch out mentality.
I just can't believe the terrible things I've been hearing about that's happened at some stores on Black Friday. A shopper pepper sprays customers so she can get ahead of them to get some cheap game system. Really lady? Is a game worth losing your family possibly forever because you will be in prison?
The guy  who shot a shopper who refused to give up his purchases, because he was too lazy and/or cheap to go and buy his own stuff and the granddaddy of all chutzpa is the poor man who collapsed at a store and died while shoppers stepped over him instead of  helping him. Did they think perhaps he was drunk and had passed out? At least some nurses finally came to his aid but by then it was too late.

This is what happens when people store their treasures on earth. Jesus warns us against such behavior.  You can't take it with you folks! Wouldn't it be awesome if the popular stores like Walmart, Target etc refused to participate in Black Friday? Wouldn't it be great if all the stores did this?
They could do Cyber Monday instead or even just open at their regular hour and close a little later without having a gynormous sale. But unfortunately that will never happen :(

  1. Such a sad case.....I hate that the big markets and stores make the day we choose to celebrate Christ birthday as a money making machine....greedy is right. I don't even attempt to shop on that day...it gets bad enough just going to Walmart for groceries during the holiday season. It can be like a mad house ..truly.

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.



The Simple Woman's Daybook

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…
