thoughts going through my head

well, I'm sitting here in my living room thinking about my life and how far I have come and I am amazed at how much things have changed. Its been a hard road and I am so blessed to have a husband who loves and supports me and encourages me everyday, To have a father-in-law that I can now call Dad. I have struggles within myself of trying to find my place in the world and I'm so glad that my husband and his family love me, they try to and want to understand and they do accept that I do struggle with feelings of not belonging, trying to figure out who I am,they believe in me and know that I'm not hiding behind what I wear, that I have nothing to prove, but just trying to simply be modest and follow my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am and will be my own person and not who others want me or expect me to be because its too much and not fair to put that kind of pressure on someone. I wish my own family would just accept me for me and see how much I am growing and maturing and see how God is working and moving in my life.

my thoughts

well sarah, you wanted to read some thoughts so here's a few. haha. Well I've been thinking alot lately about why i dress the way I do. After reading a really good article and joining a support group of women that believe God has asked them to cover. I truly believe that what I'm doing is something that God wants from us women and that is to be modest. Paul at different times doesn't command but tries to persuade that it is a good thing to cover and be modest and he lists many good reasons of why its a good thing. For me I want to be modest not just out of respect for my husband but out of respect for other men and boys. Anyways that's my thoughts and here's the article if anyone is interested in reading it. just copy and paste it in the browser. God bless!

well I have been having a blast with my little niece and nephew!!! They are so cute and full of energy and I love it!!!! I want children so bad that I can barely contain myself!!! Please Lord let it be ben and I's turn soon!!! Every time there are kids in the house I feel motivated to get things done and clean the house and when the house is empty and its just the dog, cat and I don't feel motivated to do anything and I feel useless. why is that? Is it because my biological clock is ticking saying its time or what?
