Today we are seeing a progression in increasingly immodest wedding dresses worn by our Christian brides, seemingly with their grooms approval. There is a tremendous temptation to copy the world, especially when it comes to our wedding day. The world mocks at purity, and Proverbs 14:9 says, “Fools make a mock at sin…” the Institution of Marriage is under attack, and so many are failing. We are called to be the “salt of the earth”. Our marriages need to be the world’s salt to help them see the Saviour!
When God brings a couple together and purity marries purity, there are heights of joy that the world knows nothing of. It is a joy without the cloud of guilt or wrong thinking. When Darlene Deibler Rose received the last letter her husband wrote before his death in a Japanese POW camp, she wrote, “Pure love always leaves behind a legacy of undefiled memories without regrets.” Today we have a visual symptom of Christian couples already in trouble. The spiritual wells of their lives are already polluted and the contamination has today we are seeing a progression in increasingly immodest wedding dresses worn by our christian brides, seemingly with their Grooms approval. There is a tremendous temptation to copy the world, especially when it comes to our wedding day. Hearts are being lifted to the heights of wonder at God’s plan for marriage, people are distracted by the sensuality of the scene before them.
Sitting on the highway waiting to catch speeders, a state police officer saw a car puttering along at 22 MPH. He thinks to himself, that car is just as dangerous as a speeder. So, he turns his lights on and pulls the car over. Approaching the car, he notices there are 5 old ladies, two at the front and 3 at the back, wide eyed and looking like ghosts.
The driver obviously confused said, "Officer, I don't understand, I wasn't doing over the speed limit!, What seems to be the problem?" "Ma'am," the officer said, "you should know that driving slower than the speed limit can also be dangerous". "Slower than the speed limit? NO SIR! I was doing exactly 22 miles an hour", the old woman said proudly.
The officer containing a chuckle explains that 22 was the route number, not the speed limit. A bit embarrassed, the woman grinned, thanking the officer for pointing out her error. "Before I go Ma'am, I have to ask, is everyone OK?
These women seem badly shaken and haven't uttered a word all this time" "Oh! they will be alright in a minute, Officer, we just got off Route 142."
To Value a Job Well Done
“If you’re going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning.”
All about Time Travel
“If you don’t straighten up, I’m going to knock you into the middle of next week!”
“Because I said so, that’s why.”
“Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you’re in an accident.”
“Keep crying and I’ll give you something to cry about.”
“Shut your mouth and eat your supper.”
“You’ll sit there until all that spinach is gone.”
Weather“This room of yours looks as if a tornado went through it.”
“If I told you once, I’ve told you a million times. Don’t exaggerate!”
Circle of Life
“I brought you into this world, and I can take you out.”
“Stop acting like your father!”
“There are millions of less fortunate children in this world who don’t have wonderful parents like you do.”
“Just wait until we get home.”
“You are going to get it when you get home!”
“If you don’t stop crossing your eyes, they are going to freeze that way.”
How to Become an Adult
“If you don’t eat your vegetables, you’ll never grow up.”
“When you get to be my age, you’ll understand.”
“One day you’ll have kids, and I hope they turn out just like you.”
May the roades rise to meet you,
May the winds be alwasy at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand
I read this in a book awhile ago, and then I discovered that my Grandma has it up in her house. I think it is very sweet.
Hi, as I have said in the "Author" bit on the side, my name is Sharlott and I am the eldest of nine children. I don't really have much to say about myself other than that I love blogging and writing and getting to know people. I did have a blog, exactly like this one, but somehow it disappeared, quite literally. So, I am starting all over again. I really hope you enjoy your visit in my own little piece of the world. :)
My name is Sharlott and I am the eldest of 9 children and mother to two rambunctious little ones. My life has changed a lot in the last three years, the first change being that of giving birth to my beautiful daughter. The second big change was marrying my wonderful husband, Richard, and gaining a new son! Life is about to get 10 times more hectic, but, I am ready to start blogging again, and I hope people enjoy it. :)
Be strong now,
