Celebrating 57th Years

Yesterday I mentioned today is my birthday. I made my appearance at 8:12am on Saturday,  December 31st 1960.
Life wasn't easy for our family growing up but we had many good memories.

Listening to music was a big of our lives. I grew up listening to Motown, Beatles and many more due to my parents membership in the Columbia  House Music  Club. It was 12 records for $1.00 back then.  So as a result we had exposure to all kinds music. And of course there were the music shows we watched which were Lawrence Welk, American Bandstand, Soul Train, The Real Don Steele Show, and Ed Sullivan. And who can forget Sing Along With Mitch Miller!

Sunday morning radio was gospel music played live from various churches in Los Angeles on station KGFJ. Though we didn't go to church Mama wanted us to learn about the Lord.

Anyway my taste in music has changed though I love listening to classic Motown and seeing old clips from old music shows on YouTube.

There was a time when I didn't want to discuss my age. And I definitely dated myself with the programs I mentioned. But as I grew in the Lord ( and still growing) I realized I was being vain. Ladies we need to get over ourselves and be happy to tell our age. Our age tells us how many years the Lord has blessed us with. It gives us a chance to look back at all we have accomplished in the past year and look forward to the next, Lord willing,  birthday!

Yes we may have wrinkles, flabby arms, use bifocals and all the other things that go along with aging but we are ALIVE to have these "blessings"!

So dear friends a new year will be here in a few hours. Let's make an effort to not be ashamed of the years God has blessed us with and gladly tell people our age when they ask.

Have a very blessed New Year!

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…
