Word-FILLED Wednesday

WOOHOO!! I'm SO EXCITED! This is the first picture/graphic that I can honestly say is MINE! This photo was taken on the land that connects too ours. If you'll look on the sidebar you'll notice that Zach & Gabe were both photographed here. Anyway... Overlook me, I'm easily amused and am VERY EXCITED that I've finally learned how to make my own graphic. Okay... so here it is......

For more posts on this Word-FILLED Wednesday, visit The 160 Acre Woods.

On another note... There were a few ladies to post with me on Soapbox Sunday. After having had some tell me that they'd love to join but couldn't think of anything to post on, I'm thinking it might be helpful to use a set theme. Of course if you want to join and had something else in mind to post on, then go RIGHT AHEAD! I know that sometimes we get "writer's block" and it's just too much to have to think sometimes. LOL! (I know it is for me!)

Anyway, my friend Lori mentioned something she'd thought of writing on and I thought it'd be PERFECT for the first planned theme. SO, for this Sunday the suggested theme will be on modesty. I'll be basing what I write on 1 Timothy 2:9

1 Timothy 2:9
I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes

Now, let me say before this even takes off that I'm NOT at all suggesting that we shouldn't "fix up." The idea I'm wanting to pull from this passage is being properly COVERED. I'll be posting mine sometime late Saturday afternoon, feel free to join in if you'd like. Just leave a comment stating that you're posting with us and we'll "blog hop" around seeing what each heart has to say.

I'd also like to state how thankful I was for the sweet posts this past Sunday. I hesitated on naming this meme, "Soapbox Sunday" because my intention is NOT to grumble or slander anyone. My desire is to talk about hard subjects (or whatever might be on your mind). It's ALL ABOUT bringing GLORY TO GOD! I can't wait to hear from you!

Congratulations....your post is beautiful and looks great and is perfect with your verse.

I love this verse too! It is very precious to me...memories from childhood.

May your day be filled with many blessings,

What a powerful photo and verse. It is amazing when you are enlightened to seeing that it was all in his plan. To me it is always amazing to see how all of my experiences in life over time fit together. God is so GOOD !

Have a wonderful and blessed WFW,

Oh, and I sent a letter to Sen. Brownback and Sen. Robertson of Kansas today regarding the Childhood Cancer Act. We have lost a lot of people in our community in the past few years to cancer, many of them children and young parents. Thanks to you and Susan for giving us some instruction on what we can do! I also sent instructions to my family and friends to write letters....

Faith Hope Love Mama said...

Thank you so much for your encouragement. I would adopt in a heart beat but hubby won't go for it. I know everyone feels differently about things but this is one thing where we are SO different. That is sometimes hard to swallow but I am striving to be husband honoring wife so I am not pushing the issue. By the way, how is little Allie?? Any new pictures? I hope and pray that your spirit is uplifted with her in your life. What a blessing. I am so encouraged that you feel at peace also, something to look forward. God said he would never leave me or forsake me so now I just need to believe and trust and wait for that peace. Blessings.

Tonya, What a great picture and scripture. You did a great job -- you should be excited.

Thank you for being such a light shining for the Lord. The words you write a such a joy to read and always encouraging. I always receive a blessing when I stop by as I do by the comments you leave on my blog, as well.
