Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!
 I'm going to list some of my goals for 2014. Lord willing these are my goals for 2014.
  • Walk more closely with the Lord.
  • Read through the Bible in a year
  • Get my house more organized
  • Get my old sewing machine moved out and given away
  •  Crochet at least one project that has stitches that I haven't tried before
  • Sew at least one small project like a quilt or baby dress  
I really need to draw nearer to the Lord and not compromise my convictions or conform to the world's ideas. This is really hard to do because I don't want to be considered a fuddy duddy. So I'm relying on the God to help me.
I got a simple Bible reading plan that I hope I can stay faithful to which will help me read through the Bible in a year. I don't just want to read the Word but I want to meditate on what I read. It's so easy to just follow a reading schedule and call it a day. I don't want to do that.

My house is a complete wreck! I think I really need to get into Flylady again. I have her book Sink Reflections. It's an older copy and I'm sure it's been updated but I can definitely use what's in the book.


I have an old sewing machine with a cabinet that was giving to me free so "freely I received and freely I give away". I was blessed a few years ago with a brand new Singer for free from sewing who couldn't use it anymore so I don't need two sewing machines.

As far as crocheting and sewing are concerned I'm excited to learn more skills. I'm in the middle of crocheting Hobbes from Calvin and Hobbes. This pattern has decreasing and increasing which I had never tried before. I watched a YouTube video on decreasing and was surprised how easy it is to do.
Sewing might be a little hard for me because it is frustrating changing the needle and trying to figure out the correct tension.

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…
