Tough week!!!

I don't know but the last few days I have felt so depressed:( I don't know if it is because a lot of my blogger friends are rather pregnant or have had a baby recently and I kinda feel left out(and I am happy for all you). It just still hurts so bad to have lost little Haven, even though I didn't get to see her or hold her, I feel like a piece of me is missing. I don't feel complete. I am so very grateful I have 3 beautiful children to love and hold, but I don't understand why I feel so empty inside. I have prayed and asked God to take this pain from me, and I know he will. I don't understand why things happen. It really frustrates me when I hear of someone mistreating a child, do they not understand what a gift they have??? Oh well sorry to ramble but I just had to get it out. I think I am going to read my Bible now, that always makes me feel better.

Lately I have really been praying about if we girls should wear long dresses and long skirts(not above the knee)all the time. It is something I have really been talking about with my husband. We do wear long dresses and long skirts 50% of the time, but I really feel we should wear them 100% of the time(except gauchos when we are riding bikes or hiking, etc). Hannah is not too excited about this. Haley loves wearing dresses. Now modesty necessary does not mean you have to wear dresses or skirts, but I feel that is the right choice for our family. Here are a few bible verses to reflect on:

I SAMUEL 16:7: “For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

PROVERBS 11:22: “As a ring of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a lovely woman who lacks discretion.”

I JOHN 2:16-17: “For all that is in the world -- the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life -- is not of the Father but of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.”

ROMANS 12:2: “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

Here are several links for modest clothing:




Of course this is just a few, we get most of ours from thrift stores and eBay. Now keep in mind too it does not do any good to wear long skirts or dresses if it has a a slit way up, is too tight, or your top is too low cut.

Here are some resources:

Christian Modesty and Public Undressing Of America

The Beauty of Modesty(This book is new and I have not read it yet, but I assume it is a great resource because it is from the vision forum)

Raising Maidens of Virtue(this touches on the subject some, but it is a wonderful book)


Easter 2010!!!

We had a wonderful Easter Sunday with Family and friends:) Here are the pictures including the ones from the Easter Egg Hunt Saturday April 2nd with our church.

Two Pictures up is of Bryson and my baby brother Dylan. They both are 7, Dylan is 5 months older than Bryson, but he looks like he is about 3 years older. It is so neat having a brother and son the same age. What is more interesting is that Hannah has an uncle 3 1/2 years younger than her. Dylan lives in GA(where we are from), and is on spring break this week, so he is staying with us. I will miss him so much when he is gone. I miss all my family in GA, especially him:( The first picture of Hannah shows her prize for the most eggs. She was especially excited because next year she will be too old to hunt:(
