He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!

Lift your glad voices in triumph on high,

For Jesus hath risen, and man cannot die;

Vain were the terrors that gathered around Him,

And short the dominion of death and the grave;

He burst from the fetters of darkness that bound Him,

Resplendent in glory to live and to save!

Loud was the chorus of angels on high,

The Savior hath risen, and man shall not die.

Glory to God, in full anthems of joy;

The being He gave us death cannot destroy:

Sad were the life we must part with tomorrow,

If tears were our birthright, and death were our end;

But Jesus hath cheered the dark valley of sorrow,

And bade us, immortal, to Heaven ascend:

Lift then your voices in triumph on high,

For Jesus hath risen, and man shall not die.

Through clouds of darkness drear the sunshine bright doth flow;

The hand once pierced for me has gained a victory,

My blessèd Savior rose today.


The Christ arose today, the Lord divine,

The tomb with glory-light doth shine;

Lift up your hearts and sing to Christ, the victor king,

The blessèd One who lives for aye.

Earth robed in fairest green blooms forth the Lord to greet;

The lilies pure and white bend low to touch His feet;

A song of gladness pours from morn’s unfolding doors,

The blessèd Savior rose today.


Oh, shout, ye starry choirs, let hallelujahs ring;

He lives to die no more, our prophet, priest and king;

Enthroned in glory bright, to Heav’n’s eternal light,

The blessèd Savior rose today.

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…
