Happy New Year- 2016!

2015 has come and gone and what a year it was. I think of some of the life changing events that occurred such as my father in law falling  and cracking his hip in early February, us deciding to leave our old church at the same time of his fall. Other events include attending a new church, losing a precious friend to cancer and before Christmas losing my father in law.

So now here it 2016 and I wonder what the Lord is going to do. Usually I begin my posts for the new year with goals I want to accomplish for the year. This time I think I just want to make a goal of having my daily time with the Lord. Because honestly I don't know what the future holds.  Many of the goals I've wanted to accomplish over the years I've failed at such as losing weight for example.
So my main goal as I said is to have quiet time with God. December I failed miserably which I didn't plan for that to happen. Instead of drawing closer to God after the death of Dad instead I drifted away from Him.
I hope to avoid that this year.

  1. I'm so sorry to hear of your losses.I do understand your feelings.I lost a niece and nephew two months apart this summer. I have found out my brother has less than a year to live. He has cancer.
    I know all I can do is hold on to my heavenly Father and pray.
    It helps me to keep going.I pray for His will to be done. I must try to give all my worries to Him. He is in control.

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

(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…
