A Variety of Topics

NOTE *I actually started this post several weeks ago but I just couldn't finish it. There are just too many emotions associated with this post.

Some of you may be wondering just who was "Papa" Richard Mummau? He was a wonderful Christian man. My husband and I met him in back in 2006 when he came to CA to visit some friends. He happened to be visiting the same people that we were going to meet for the first time. It was our first visit to a Conservative Mennonite church.

 Anyway, Papa Richard loved the Lord and he had a heart for the lost. He also was a wonderful encouragement to other Christians. His advice came right from scripture. When someone would say something contrary to what the Bible says, he would ask the person to show him in the Bible where it says whatever the person had said. This was not to be rude but to challenge the person to read the scripture to find out what it really says.
He enjoyed sending out free sermons on CD,free hanging veils etc and not once did he ever ask for any money in return.  I have several  of the CDs and hanging veils he sent. Tim and I will miss his wisdom and his family letters very much.

My daughter Kaitlyn has about two and a half weeks left of radiation for her cancer. It's been tough emotionally because she is getting tired of going everyday. She has dealing with the skin being red and peeling. She especially hates the idea of the doctors and nurses poking and prodding the area. I don't much blame her as I wouldn't like it either.

Going to the Cancer Center has be a challenge  because you see the people there and you know why they are there. You wonder what kind of cancer they have, what's their prognosis and how long they have to go for treatment.

Many have loved ones who come with them for treatments, husbands, wives, adult children who will sometimes bring their children along to support grandpa or grandma. We have not met any other parents with children who have cancer there so it's a lonely thing to go through even though we know the Lord is there with us.
It would be nice to connect with Christian parents who understand what we are going through.
I want to say that cancer really stinks! I can't believe the number of people who have died from cancer and I'm just shocked by the number of well known people who have died from cancer in the past several months.

And it doesn't matter the age of the person that has the cancer. It still stinks. I figure writing it stinks is less offensive than the other word I had in mind. I hate that my child is getting tired of this whole mess and there is nothing we can do but just get through the treatments praying that all the cancer is being destroyed.


  1. Praying for you and your daughter, Regina. Yes, cancer stinks!

  2. Hey Regina,
    Thanks so much for updating, you've been on my mind lately. Please know that I'm keeping your family in my prayers, and expect to hear great things soon.

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…
