Revisited "A real woman..." Part 1


A real woman...
...is glad she's a woman and rejoices in her femininity, expressing it through her attitude, appearance and bearing. (1 Timothy 2:9-10) Oh I am sure all us girls are good at this, who've been 'raised right', but do we EVERYDAY? Do we femininity through our bearing (i.e. do we act like a lady?)
A real woman...does not compete for equality with men or chafe at God's design for male and female, but delights in and understands the importance of her calling to complement man's role. (1 Timothy 2:11-12, Ephesians 5:22-24) So when's the last time you told your brother's your older than them and 'get to get such and such' because of it? Well last night I did and 1 Tim 2:11 and 12 yell their chastisement to me! God has suffered for that pride of mine! :(

A real woman...values the cultivation of her mind and diligently seeks after wisdom and knowledge. (Proverbs 22:17-21, 2:2-6) My, my, how sorry I am at this one!! I feel so busy with this job or that, but am I really too busy for God's wisdom? Proverbs 2:6 "For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth ometh knowledge and understanding." If he made time don't you think he knows and made enough time for us to spend it with him? But I know I have just been lazy and that's not acceptable! I will get up for my love! He's the only one who will be perfect to me everyday, why can't I at least admit I'm imperfect by 'making time' for the best 'perfect' teacher there is EVER???? We crazy humans and all our 'duties' or supposed busyness! Thank God he loves us!!

A Wedding Dress!

Okay, talk about dress maker, that's me :D

So here goes the story of my Aunt's wedding dress, that I'm currently making.

I was in a buy-materiel kinda mode and so I bought a shower curtain that was on sale, it was nice and big and I knew it'd be enough materiel for a small dress at least.

Well I had it tucked away for a long time but then I decided I'd make a dress, first for me then she had commented on one dress I made so I decided to make it for her, and thankfully told her in time before I put it all together. And now its her wedding dress! She is so cute in it and it is coming along fine! I have a few adjustments to make but they are minor.

It's a fun prodject and perhaps the most important one I've done yet!

Photos will be up after October 6th, their wedding day.

I do apologize it will take a while, but no-one must see the dress yet.

Keep posted!

North Carolina...


We are here at Christy's and she's already got to put her baby (in her tummy) to sleep for a nap! :) We met Stephen's family again and had fun playing the board game "Clue". I also hope we can play a 1950s game I found.


On our way up here we went to Nashville, TN. It's not as great as we thought, or as nice. We only saw rock and roll bands and there were a lot of bars. But we did get to sing at Cane Creek Church, where Mr. Micheal Pearl usually preaches. But keep him in your prayers he was sick when we were there. We also got to jam with some other musicians near our age!


I found this great picture and I like these dress styles, don't you wish dresses were still this cute & affordable? :)


We will sing Wednesday in TN again on our way home and we play Thursday night in Texas.

Well I better go now. Have a great week!

His Gal,

More photos...


At a pool in Lamar, CO. on our resent trip to Colorado.













This was inside an old 1880s cabin at South Park City in Fairplay, CO. The 1880s museum/town. It was very neat, those stairs lead up to the loft above us.




BELOW: Me, Joshua and John trying Daddy's glasses on (don't they look good?) While he was trying my blue-mirrored sunglasses on (with Joshi's cowboy hat)!






















Joshua's bed in our Guestroom after he and I rearranged it.











Melody and I made and decorated that literal pan-cake together, for the 4th of July!
















My favorite car, a 1960s Mustang, the best car (and horse, only it'd be better if it was convertible)!

Life is SO good!


Hello my friends! How much fun God's let us have! I had to share these photos.

Enjoy!

Below is Daddy and Abigail practicing music, the Colorado Spring mountains and then Melody and Abigail, with their same 'twin' shirts on :)
