Marriage and Being in Love With Love

We have a family member who son is getting married soon. He is a Christian just barely 18 and the girl he is marrying is a very baby Christian. Our family member had just barely got out of a previous relationship before he took up with this girl. We have come to the conclusion that neither one of them is truly ready for marriage. I'm not sure if they truly understand what marriage is all about and are basically in love with love.

Sisters when we marry in the Lord we need to make sure we are truly understanding what being married is all about. We need to be willing to submit to the man we plan to marry. I see so Christian couples suffer terribly because they let their emotions (and hormones!) get in the way.
Marriage doesn't mean happily ever after. God never promised things would be easy in life and you have to be able with the Lord's help get through those rough patches.
Anyway, this was on my mind. I could say more but the truth is I started this post days ago but didn't have time to finish. Now I can't remember everything I wanted to write.


  1. Praying for these two. A marriage can sometimes also become a tug of war as each person seeks to be boss. You have to be mature enough a Christian to have a Godly marriage

  2. Thank you Michelle. I remember many years ago Papa Richard said that couples spend so much time planning the wedding they fail to plan the marriage. I appreciate your 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"

"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…
