Some Random Thoughts

One of the goals I was thinking about in the last week or so is to give this blog more attention by posting more. I don't want to be an inactive blogger so I plan to post at the very least twice a month if not more.

I have noticed in the past few weeks there have been a number of passings in the entertainment world. Natalie Cole, David Bowie to name a couple.  Whenever entertainers die I wonder what their spiritually life was like. I know many have died without Christ and to me that is a tragedy.

Lately I have been following a blog by a country singer named Rory Feek of Joey+Rory. Now I want to say up front I'm not a country music fan. I had never even heard of these people until around November. To those who are unfamiliar with Joey+Rory they are a husband-wife duo popular in the country music field. They are also Christians and I guess they have done some hymn albums.

Joey is near death from cancer(I hate cancer!) and she will be leaving behind her husband and 22 month old baby girl. About three years ago the couple recorded a song called "When I'm Gone" The song was written by their friend Sandy Lawrence. She had written the song when her mom was dying of cancer (Did I tell you I hate cancer?!) Sandy wrote the song to help her deal with her feelings about her mom's about her mother's eventual death which is the message of the song.
 They did a video for the song and they originally were going to record the song as a duet but their producers or whatever they are called came up with the idea of Joey singing to Rory and he would be the one left behind. Little did they know this would actually happen.

This is the link to Rory's most recent post with the song. I'm warning you now you will go through an entire box of tissues because of what Rory is going through:  http://thislifeilive.com/when-im-gone/
 I think the song has helped me in some ways to deal with my father-in-law's death which I'm still dealing with.

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

(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…
