Angry

Yesterday I received word that a precious wife and mother from back home lost her battle with cancer. She was a believer so she is rejoicing with the Lord but I'm angry because as I have said this before I HATE CANCER!!
Cancer has taken so many moms and dads from our little homeschool group over the years we were part of this community before we moved. Cancer took my mother and niece.

As I was cleaning yesterday after I found out about this mom's death I found myself getting angry at many things:
 Angry at abortion because I wonder if one of those aborted babies could have grown up to find a cure for cancer.
Angry at this woman who professes to be a Christian yet is trying desperately to convince me that the scriptures regarding wives submitting to their husbands don't apply today.
Angry at blatant Satan because he is deceiving people and their souls are lost.
Angry at sin. We live in a fallen world and our only hope is in Jesus.

So I'm just plain angry but I'm now…

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 …

Snow Day and Feeling Better

Thank you all for your prayers for my "cooties". I'm better today. Last night the snow started but by the end of today it it was nearly gone. This is part of our back yard about 8 this morning.
Poor Tim had to scrape snow and ice off the car.

Feeling Almost Better

Thank you friends for your sweet comments. I'm feeling almost better but I have this ridiculous chest cough😧
I hope to avoid going to the walk in clinic. It's cold and rainy and may turn to snow so if I can just ride it out but if it gets worse I'll have to go.

I think I'm going to make a pot of hot tea and lemon. You all have a blessed Lord's  Day tomorrow.

Sick Today

I also wanted to tell you I will be out of commission for a few days. I have a sore throat and body aches.🤒😷😩 I hope to be better in a few days.

Oh Happy Day

When I was a child  Oh Happy Day  by the Edwin Hawkins Singers was very popular on the secular radio stations. I was always singing along with it. Edwin Hawkins went to be with the Lord this week. It's  in his memory I share this video. https://youtu.be/hzj3pOdCOqU

Why I Wear a Headcovering Part 2

Before I continue with my post I want to ask you all to pray for the residents back in Montecito, CA. As you probably heard Tuesday's rain storm caused terrible flooding and mudslides. As of today seventeen people lost their lives and there are still people missing including an entire family.  KETY news in Santa Barbara has been releasing names of victims as they become available and quite honestly I'm afraid of seeing the full casualty list when it is released. We know a few families there because our children all used to take music classes together.
Montecito may be home to some  wealthy people  but not all that live there are but nevertheless they all need our prayers.
 Thank you ladies

So like I said last time, I couldn't understand why it was such a big deal over a piece of fabric on a woman's head.
I struggled with that and wondered if I had indeed lost my marbles but then that would mean …

Why I Wear a Headcovering- Take 2 Part 1 Again

Okay ladies! I'm going to try this again and I hope it will come through clearly.

I started covering  in obedience to 1Corinthians 11:1-16.  Rather than me typing out the verses, you may look them up on your own. In these verses the apostle Paul teaches about women covering their heads while praying or prophesying and men are to pray uncovered.

I really wanted to research this topic because I remember a lady named Charity wearing a hanging veil at an Above Rubies retreat around 2003 and a few months later a mom whose name was Sherry and her daughters, one of which had a CaringBridge health update page wore similar head veils. I really found this odd because the lady at the retreat was Filipino and these ladies were white. So I figured the Above Rubies lady was doing for cultural reasons and the ladies from the CaringBridge site were probably from a foreign country. They were actually from Florida, born and raised.

That is until I came across a link on Sherry's page which lead …

Uh Oh! Part One Didn't Work!

I'm not sure what happened with part 1 of my post but it didn't come through correctly. I started writing it on my Android tablet and finished it on my PC. I'm so sorry about that. And after all that hard work too. Sigh...

Why I Wear a Headcovering- Part 1

I've get asked frequently why I wear "that thing" on my head. "Are you Amish" "Are you a nun?" "Are you from a foreign country?"

I started covering in 2005 after doing a thorough study on the subject.  In the Bible the topic is in 1 Corinthians 11:1-16.
Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. 2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. 3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. 4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. 5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. 6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. 7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his …

Good Morning!

I hope everyone is having a pleasant morning. I want to thank everyone for my birthday wishes and the responses to my goals for the year.
Now that it has taken me a whole week to recover from the holidays I can get back to posting again.  I'm preparing to write a post on why I wear a headcovering since some have been wondering. I hope to get that up later today. Right now homemaker duites call.

It's Hot Tea Month!

In honor of Hot Tea Month I'm posting this cute video. I've only tried posting a video once so I hope this works. Enjoy and then go have a cup of tea! Or better yet watch with a cup of tea!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! It's 2018 ladies and that means is time for my yearly post on my goals for the year. Most of you know I dont do New Year's resolutions because  resolutions can easily be broken but with goals, I don't set myself up for failure.

 I must confess that I had thought about not blogging anymore or taking a very long break.
But I realize I really like encouraging you ladies whom I consider you all friends so as long as the Lord wants me to blog I will continue to write.

So here goes my list in order this time.

1. Improve my prayer life. My prayer life isn't horrible but I want to take more opportunities to go in my "war room" to pray not just during my regular prayer time.

2.Start a Bible reading plan and not get frustrated with myself if I miss a day. I have assigned reading in my daily devotions but I want to increase my reading of the Word.

3. Have more grace with my husband and daughters when they do things that frustrate me. I find myself getting i…
