Do You Know..?

Do You KNOW that You are Beautiful?

Ponder that question…Do you truly know and accept your beauty?

Now, follow me…This is a concept I struggle with…I have never been the best looking, the most saught after, the kind that every guy would want to be with…And Praise God for that!!!

But then again, I am the best looking, the most saught after and the kind that one guy wants to be with… MY Hubby… God has put my beauty in his sights…He has made me absolutely and wholly for my husband… It doesn’t matter where I measure up against the world (and it shouldn’t).

If this is true, why do we as women let the world get to us. Why do we feel that our beauty needs to be measured by absurd standards…. Why do we deny it when our husbands genuinely come before us and tell us we are beautiful? Is it because what we think of as beauty and what God has put in our husbands hearts to veiw as beauty are two different things?

Women I urge us to just humbly accept and live in our husbands adoration to us. They truly see and believe we are the most beautiful woman in their lives. We strip them of ourselves and our trust in them when we deny our beauty when they make a comment as ” You are so beautiful.” “You are really attractive in that.” “I love you in that outfit.” “Have I ever told you how pretty you are?” and so on…

It is not like me to listen to or quote secular songs but I was reminded of one the other day and it really drove home these thoughts… Ponder it…Let them sink in….

…..A girl like her she just can’t see
What the fuss is all about

And she don’t know she’s beautiful
(never crossed her mind)
She don’t know she’s beautiful
(no shes not that kind)
She dont know shes beautiful
Though time and time i’ve told her so

Mornin’ comes and her hairs all a mess
That’s when she thinks she looks her worst
It’s times like this she dont know why
I can’t take my eyes off her

And she don’t know she’s beautiful
(never crossed her mind)
She don’t know she’s beautiful
(no shes not that kind)
She dont know shes beautiful
Though time and time i’ve told her

Do We Know We Are Beautiful, When Our Husbands Tell Us So?

Do We Know We Are Beautiful, When God Tells Us So?

Let us measure our beauty according to God’s word and Let us accept a compliment from our husbands when they tell us we are beautiful.

(Psa 139:14-16 KJV) “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. {15} My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. {16} Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.”

Where’d the road go?

I had posted a little bit about this before…When I showed thepictured of Titus enjoying watching the tracko dig and put in the new colvert across the creek from our property… August Misc

Well this is what we found when we went for a walk last night…..

Titus had to inspect each piece of equipment we walked past….

Jairus looks very thrilled by the whole thing…

Titus also thought that this was some sort of play ground…

Even the local bunny has to check out whats been happening….

Okay…I guess that’s enough…We are enjoying watching the equipment work, but are also growing weary of it at the same time…The project is suppose to be done by August 25 (THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL)…So at least there is an end in sight…Until then I guess I can dry my whites inside…*sigh*…

Oh…here’s my favorite picture of the week…For the next three tuesdays (well two now that yesterday has come and gone) I am heading to Philly to visit my Orthopedic Surgeon to get shots that will prayfully help me avoid surgery and have more comfortable pregnancies !?! More about that on a later date… Any way… So while I am down there I get to catch up with family…Yesterday Titus joined me in my visiting….

We are very blessed that the boys have three Great Grandmother’s living….Ranging in ages 84 to 92….WOW!!!

I didn’t even grow up with my grandfather’s let alone any Great’s!!! I am enjoying that they can enjoy each other…Its a blessing for them and a blessing for me

Marvel at the many ways God cares for us….It will blow your mind!!!

A Quiet Sort of Busy

Wow, You all are probably wondering what happened to me… My internet was disconnected Monday due to the fac the computer had to be moved for The Brethren to be able to record some songs Monday night…So I am now back online and updating on the past week and a half….

Since I mentioned The Brethren getting together, I will start there…You might remember last September I posted about them getting together for the first time since we got married…Well, they got together again on Monday night to sing before one member heads off to school next week. There was still only seven of the eight present. Jason is back in Nicaragua and Mark is now home from Fair Play Boys Camp in SC…

Here are some pictures from my perspective…Four of us wives and our eight children stayed outside, while they recorded

We were blessed with CUCUMBERS from our neighbors, so I found a recipe online to freeze them…This is what they looked like before I put them in containers in the freezer…I got five, three cup containers full…

And last but not least….An amazing praise to God…The day after Les’ family headed back to SC…My father-in-law, came over to bless us by mozing our lawn with his little tractor…. He had it on his pickup and had to wooden ramps to back it off the truck…They were in place and he started to process of backing it up, when everything went wrong, the ramps bent and the tractor came crashing down with him still in the seat…He was able to hold onto the steering wheel until I could get to him so the tractor didn’t crush him….In the picture he is in the process of turning the tractor so he could get it back on four wheels instead of the two it currently was on….We praise God he was not seriously hurt….
