Capture the Moment Photography. By Miss Katelyn S

A little bit about her blog/ Her goal: 1.) be a witness somehow for my viewers that are not Christians, 2.) I want to be in inspiration for other photographers, and for other Christians as well, if I possibly can, and 3.) I enjoy having my blog in a way as a journal. It's kind of like an escape to just write and a scrapbook of all my memories to look back over. But most of all, I want to show glory to God's name throughout my blog, and I want to be a light in Christ.

How Long it's been running: July 2010.

I started it around December of 2009 but I started posting stuff in July of 2010

I started my blog to share ideas of how to make things and to sell some of my 
crafts that I make (since I don't work out of my home) and also to share all
of my projects with distant family and friends. what makes my blog different 
I guess is that I make most of my stuff out of denim!

Where Have All The Ladies Gone..... Part 2.

In my last post, some of my readers were might I say, steamed about the post.

I want to clarify.

That in women working, I am not talking about teens (Unmarried) and older ladies or the widowed.
But ladies that have children not married off yet.


There is a very high source of neglecting, when women go out and work and leave their children.
Such as sending children to public or private schools. Is there really a need to send your children their? to endure the torture from other kids.
Children and even teens have a problem saved and not. to make fun of children when they have glasses, or a unique feature.
So why if you care for them put them through it?
Whether it be that you "want" to go out and work, or that you need to. Is indeed 2 different situations in itself.
To me, and this is only my opinion.
A mother cannot go out and work, and still have time.

Is there a source of happiness? in leaving your children?
I;m in no way trying to say that women are cavemen.
As I said before. I'm not talking about older women widows, or women that have no children that are little.
I'm talking about women, that have children, and send them OFF to school. While the husband stays home wife goes out. ITS NOT BIBLICAL!

When the Virtuous woman went out and bought land. She did not go out and claim it! she didn't say "oh this is mine, I made something of myself, I'm my own woman, this isn't my husbands at all. I did this!"

Going out and working was the virtuous woman did. Was NOT her career! Serving the Lord taking care of and raising her children and caring for her husband.

Someone may say today. She was a doormat.
That's not the case.

In the bible it does not say anything about women working and leaving children and husbands. to fend for themselves.
She does not have the right to take authority, being when she goes out and works. She's taking authority.

Now Ladies. In no way, IF you are currently working, or feel offended. Please this is ONLY my opinion.

Thank you Ladies.
In His Honor.

Where Have All The Ladies Gone?

Where have all the ladies gone? into our local grocery stores, onto the construction sites, into our police cars and into burning houses.

behind our pulpits. . . .

Spreading across our nation and world like a deadly flu.

Taking authority into hands and leaving biblical womanhood behind.

What a sad day we live in, where a woman would rather go out and fight a war or arrest somebody, build a house or preach (Note to readers this does not mean spreading the gospel which is right for ALL to do, this means preaching behind a pulpit.) then to have children and take care of them, and her husband, but does she take care of her husband? certainly not. Women of today have taken a height role of authority, fighting wars and preaching.

A fine job of such, leaving thoughts of children in the dust, off to business like jobs, I feel in my opinion, that you can have a career, it's called raising children! a fine career that is!

But of course, for some women, and notice I use the word women, because I feel that these females that go out and work do not have the title of "Lady" For some women that would be the end of life, a waste. . . . Some ladies feel differently. Being a wife and homemaker would bring no greater joy to me (Job wise.)

But women have it in their little heads that women have to make something of themselves in life, and being a housewife is not.

Sadly enough the title "Mr Mom" is used frequently in today's society. While the woman goes out and works the husband would stay home and care for the children, clearly in that situation the woman would be "Wearing the Pants"

When does it stop? shall it ever? With people using "so called bibles" that free them of many of Gods commandments and even edit the word of God so they may get away with sin, it shall never.

The Virtuous Woman worked.
Prov. 31:13-16
She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

God provided her with strength..

Prov. 31:17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

By her candle not going out, she was deeply in prayer EVERY night, even when life was good.
Prov. 31:18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

Not greedy.

Prov. 31:20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

The Virtuous woman was most definitely a lady.

Don't we all strive to be like her? though sometimes we get caught up with life it feels like it will never be possible. It is!

Let's see our keys in the Virtuous woman.

Her husband trusted her. Prov. 31:11

She was not lazy. Prov 31:16

She prayed. Prov. 31:18

She was not greedy. Prov. 31: 20

She had wisdom and she was kind. Prov: 31:26

She looked after her household. She did not rely on her house maidens to do everything. Prov. 31: 27, 15

Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

Don't Wait to Share the Gospel.

Many of you do not know me personally, some of you may know what I'm talking about, and some of you won't.

I'm very young, my age is unknown to most of you, but that does not stop me from writing from my heart.
I went to a funeral of a very dear very loved close *person I have known all my life* I am not disclosing the denomination she belonged to, but as most of you know I'm a IB and KJV only, I had never been to this denominations church, but a hint, we believe VERY different from them. as I sat through the service I tried not to cry. But eventually tears filled my eyes as they talked of many things, but most of all when they brought her in.

Seeing everyone's eyes filled with tears and sorrow. *A note to readers she was not say the least*
All that ran through my head was if only I could have got to her her denomination she was very strong...and unwilling to be changed of her beliefs and religion choice...

What ran through my mind over and over I sat there and cried..if only I could have saved her..if only I could have tried harder...

This kindled a flame that burned for the rest of the day on through as I write this, a flame and a desire stronger then I had before. That I have a desire to share and to tell ladies my story of how God has helped me.

I know now though it was kind of weird being in *this certain denominations church* as they believe much different then I myself. Is though they take so many people in, I want to make a difference...I don't want Satan to get anymore of my family, my friends, or the people around this earth.

Can you make a difference?
can anyone share the gospel? Yes everyone can share the gospel.

Jesus may come any day now ladies, so do not and I stress this, DO NOT wait to share the gospel with loved ones, you never know what will happen, not everyone lives to be over 100.
So please don't hesitate, don't wait.
Tell them about whose in your heart.
Before you cannot. Please pray before you choose to share the gospel.

Thank you for reading.
