Giving the Devil Too Much Credit?

This thought came to mind as a ponder these last few weeks of dealing with the cancer Kaitlyn was treated for. Several well meaning Christians have saod things like "Satan caused your daughter to have cancer" or " Somthing from your past was let in to cause your daughter's cancer" and things like that.
Are all illnesses from the enemy? I believe that the Lord allows some things that aren't pleasant to draw us closer to Him but I'm confused about this issue. I'm interested in what you readers have to say about this.
Remember comment moderation is on so hateful, mean spirited posts will be rejected.


  1. I think people mean well, that they need someone/thing to 'blame' to ease the hurt. They don't mean any harm by these comments, it's hard to know what to say, really.

    As to my own opinion? It's life in a fallen world. Sickness happens, but God is always in control. Nothing you or your daughter 'did' caused this, but He can certainly use it for good, even though it may be years (or even never) that you/we see how that works out.

    He has a plan, and He will see it through, and be with you every step of the way. My prayers are with you all, every day.

  2. Thank you Tammy! I truly beleive that God is using this cancer for his Glory and He definitely has a plan. Just wish I knew what that was.
    Tammy would you I didn't know there was a feature on Blogger to reply to comments? And I've had this blog since 2010!
    Makes me wonder what else I can do on here.

  3. While reading my bloglist this morning, I came across something that immediatly made me think of you. It's from Arabah Joy, and kind of addresses your situation.

    I hope it helps, it definatley made me think aobut my own situations going on. Title: How He Heals

    And I know about Blogger, crazy, right! lol

  4. I think it is sometimes easier to blame the devil. We like to have something or someone to blame. Huggles and prayers.

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…
