Bible reference of the Day

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him who have been called according to his purpose.
For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.
And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those justified, he also glorified.

Romans 8:28-30 NIV

Quote of the Day

The most important part of our task will be to tell everyone who will listen that Jesus is the only answer to the problems that are disturbing the hearts of men and nations.
We shall have the right to speak because we can tell from our experience that his light is more powerful than the deepest darkness...
How wonderful that the reality of his presence is greater than the reality of the hell about us.

Monday ( Sept. 21, 2009 )

For Today

Outide my window... cloudy and windy

I am thankful for... getting to be home and being a keeper at home

I am wearing... black knee shorts and a pink and green shirt

I am hearing... Canon in D ( on my blog )

One of my favorite things... watching movies with my mom ( like Pride and Prejudice ) :D

A picture thought... My dad and I at Laura Ingalls Wilder house in Mansfield, MO.

Bible reference for the day

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
Does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
Does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Civil War and WW2 books

My mom bought me all of these books at the thrift store. They are all brand new books!! I love studying war history. Especially the Civil War ( or The War Between the States) and WW2.

Dresses I bought at a thrift store!

I bought these dresses at a thrift store for a $1 each!! My mom and I love going thrift shopping!! My mom has taught me how to shop at thrift stores. You never know what you will find at a thrift store. She calls it a treasure hunt :) I have a little white shrug that I wear with this dress.

So Much More

This is a quote from the book called So Much More.

If God was so kind as to let you grow up in a family, then you are not single. You have been put into an importan unit for an important purpose. To pursue singleness ( singleness meaning, being outside a family ) is to reject this gift. This is hwo God views single people: " He setteth the solitaryinto families" ( Psalm 69:6a). Being solitaryis something that God, being all-knowing and loving, and merciful, delivers His children out of. So He blesses His daughters by making singleness a non-issue for them. He puts them into families.

Many grils respond to this with, "But you don't know my family!" No, we don't, but God does. people say, "You choose your friends, but your family you're stuck with." We prefer to say,
"You choose your friends, but God chooses your family." Before the foundations of the earth, God was putting together all the members of your family, and He chose each one for a purpose, as He does everything. If you look at the family in terms of a group of souls whom God chose from all the other souls, to put together to share a life, it gives you whole new perspective into what a wonderful miracle a family is.

Summer Plans

This summer (in July) I'm going to an 1861 Girls School in Tennessee for a week. You dress in authentic mid- 19th century clothing all week and we learn etiquette, penmanship, art, music, dance and the social graces. In addtion we also participate in side saddle horsemanship, archery, and other sports. At the end of the week we have a small graduation followed by a formal ball to which we are escorted by members of the Jackson Cadets, a group of local young men dedicated to the study of mid-19th century history and customs.
If you would like to see more about it here's the

Happy Memorial Day!

Memorial Day

By Eula Gladys Lincoln

In distant field of sunny France
Where strangers come and go,
Amid the farms of Flanders where
The fragrant breezes blow,
Our soldier-dead in quiet sleep
Neath crosses row on row.

Here shrapnel shells once shrieked and burst
And took their toll of death;
The very wind, itself a foe,
Bore poison on its breath.

Above their graves the birds now sing
As round that home of yore,
When, care-free boys, they romped and played;
Those childhood days soon o'er,
The boys to brave and strong men grown,
They romped and played no more.

They put aside their childish toys,
A man's work each must do,
And when their country called for them,
To her they answered true.

"We must protect our native land:
She shall not suffer wrong
For she has reared and nurtured us,
We're men and we are strong.
We'll bid good-by to those we love;
It will not be for long.

"With aching hearts and tear-dimmed eyes
We watched them go away.
Some have returned but many sleep
In foreign lands to-day.

Where English roses bloom and fade,
In France where lilies grow,
Among the fields of Flanders, where
The scarlet poppies blow,
Our soldier-dead are not forgot
Though strangers come and go.

I want to wish all of you a safe and happy Memorial Day!
