You alone created my inner being. You knitted me together inside my mother.
Psalm 139:13









A time to tear apart and a time to sew together; A time to be silent and a time to speak.
Ecclesiastes 3:7











And clouds are the dust beneath His feet.
Nahum 1:3

A Summer Evening


Imagine:
Sitting in a chair hammock for the first time. A warm, gentle breeze moving you ever so slightly. A robin singing and thanking God for taking care of him. The slight humming of the air conditioner. The neighbor's barely audible conversation and the slight jingle of their dogs collar. The melodious sound of mom talking to grandma on the cellphone. Mourning doves gently cooing in unison. The setting sun shinning through the garden squash leaves. The buzz of flies and the tickling of ants as they crawl on your feet. Yummy iced tea in a glass bottle by your side. A fabulous book to read. A regency styled dress gently covers your body in red and white flowers. The knowledge that Christ died on the cross and rose again on the third day for our sins, so that we might have eternal life. The smells of the earth and various blooming flowers drifting by on the breeze. Thoughts of being a wife and a mother someday. Praying that the Lord would help me be content to wait until the time is right. The sound of Ethan and Dad playing catch with a baseball. Ana whispering to the dog. The feel of cotton rope suspending you in the air. Thoughts of praise and thanks to the Lord for a pleasant weekend with family and friends. Thoughts of dress patterns. Thanks you Jesus.

Dare To Be A Lady




"I am a lady, therefore I will not......

Disrespect my family. (Mom and Dad know best!)...

Sacrifice girl time. (They're pretty rockin'!)...

Initiate dates. (I want to be pursued!)...

Dress immodestly. (Modest is the hottest!)...

Open my own doors. (I'm not lazy, it's just that chivalry is not dead!)...

Make the first move. (I really stink at chess...)...

Have a potty-mouth. (Toilets belong in stalls...)...

Tempt my brothers in Christ. (He's someone's future husband.)...

Deny the power of prayer. (Amen.)...

Violate my purity. (True love waits.)...

Have the manners of a cavewoman. (I was not born in a barn.)...

Dance in a way that does not honor God. (Grinding is done in woodshop class, not on the dance floor.)...

Abuse my body with alcohol and other drugs. (My body is a temple of God!)...

Obsess about my physical appearance. (I am fearfully and wonderfully made.)...

Be discontent in my current situation. (God knows how to give good gifts--there's none like the present!)(A great guy is worth waiting for.)...

Underestimate the power of God. (He's bigger than my mistakes!)...

Date someone who doesn't respect me. (I am a Lady!!!)...

Disrespect the gentlemen in my life. (They deserve respect, too!)...

Defraud myself by putting myself in situations where I'm tempted to act un-ladylike. (don't flirt with fire) (Not how close CAN I get to the line... but how FAR can I get from the temptation!)"

The bridge that goes across to the Zoo.




The little caterpillars that where crawling around on everything! I'm really not to fond of these little guys. On the bridge was where their little "nest" was.
