A Calm Vent

Well I will try to be calm. I have brought the subject of leaving children in hot cars before. I just read an article about an irresponsible mom who left her two year old baby in the car while she shopped at Costco. Thankfully some shoppers saw the crying child and called 911. The mother shows up with one child in tow and was apologetic but the police were not having it. She was told her child could have died and was arrested for child endangerment.

Unfortunately not all children  are rescued in time. Each year it never fails that a child dies from being left in a hot car. There is absolutely no excuse for leaving a child in a car. If the child is asleep when you arrive at the store either turn around and go home or wake the child up. It is better to put up with a cranky child than planning a funeral for a dead one! Not to mention the prison time you're going to face.

That's my rant. I apologize for calling the mom I mentioned irresponsible but it just makes me so upset to hear about these types of stories.
This statement I'm going to make is often used to criticize those of us who chose to have more than one child. God gave you a brain. Use it! DO NOT LEAVE YOUR BABY IN A HOT CAR EVER!!!
You have my permission to forward this post or however that works.


  1. I just do not understand why anyone would leave a child in a car...ever!

    1. I don't know either. It's really sad that some parents just don't think.

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…
