I have many "friends" on the internet that I don't agree totally with their way of doing things. They have different methods of dress, hair style, makeup or no makeup, homeschool or public school or private school, etc. But I don't get on their blog or facebook page and ridicule them. If they're making decisions that are bad for them, I will pray for them. Many times I read stuff that makes me wonder and I will pray for my own understanding. Sometimes my decisions and beliefs have been challenged and after praying about it, seeking the Lords guidance & talking with Greg ~ I have changed my mind.
I have removed comments from the blog and hidden people on FB for reasons personal to me. I really don't need to be continually questioned, made fun of, or told "I am sheltering my children, too much". I also hid a bunch of folks I went to highschool with. We are all 50+ years old, lets act like it.
I am totally thrilled, perfectly happy & content in my life. I love my husband and 7 children. I am a devoted follower of Jesus Christ. I pray continually for my friends, acquaintances, and family members. I am very conservative in my political views and strongly believe in less government. I am pro-life and believe that every life is valuable. (A womans right to chose ends when she chooses not to use birth control)
I would love to live on a farm. We have pigs, chickens and dogs right now. I would like to add more critters to the menagerie. I love my garden and growing good food for my family. We grind our wheat, bake our bread, and enjoy the "fruits of our labor". We cook most things from scratch and try not to rely on convenience foods too much.
I love to sew, quilt, smock, and cross stitch. I rarely sit in front of a tv without cross stitching (ask my kids and hubby). I like to learn new things and share with others.
I love to read. I like to read "fuzzy, warm, feel good books" , inspirational books, how to books, nutritional books, homeschool books, cookbooks. My current goal is to read the entire Bible, cover to cover, in one year. Something I have never done and I want to.
I love to "visit" other blogs and read about their days, their struggles, their triumphs, their recipes, etc. There are some awesome women out there sharing their lives. Sometimes, things will be shared that I comment about, maybe I am going through the same thing, or I offer to pray, or they inspired me, or made me laugh or made me ponder.
I'm far from perfect. I struggle daily. I rely on the Lord constantly.
