True Strength

It’s really interesting watching all the things that have been flowing across cyberspace today in regards to International Women’s Day.  It’s interesting to me all the women who seem to think that being a strong woman means disregarding the role God gave them.  I think a truly strong woman can be who she needs to be while still placing her Father’s will and instruction first.

This may come as a shock to someone out there, but I am here to tell you that you can be a strong woman and still be a child of God.  You can be a strong woman and still allow your husband to lead your family.  You can be a strong woman and still stay at home with your children.  You can be a strong woman and still wear dresses.  You can be a strong  woman and have conservative values, including being pro-life.  You can be a strong woman and support President Trump.  Yep, I said it!

Envy Rots the Bones

Now that I made a big stink about social media yesterday, more specifically about Facebook, I guess I should offer a little confession.  I talked about those in person friends that I had actually spent time with and how hurt I am that there is zero communication after curing myself of social media mania.  Well, what I didn’t tell you is that I am struggling with a bit of an issue since leaving.  It’s an issue of jealousy.

I’m not jealous over Facebook.  That’s just silly.  What I am talking about is a little more personal.

You see, my husband also left Facebook shortly after I did.  Only, when he left there was a bit of a difference… When we moved there was a bit of a difference… He just has had a whole different experience.

Social Media Mania

I left Facebook back in November.  It was November 29, 2016, to be exact.  I didn’t just deactivate my account; I completely deleted it.

Gone.

No more.

Of course, Facebook will allow me to remake a profile and begin again if I choose to, but I haven’t done that.  I’ve thought about it a few times.  I mean, it sure would be nice to hear from some old friends.  I think.  Maybe.

If you are wondering why the uncertainty, please read on.

Taking in the View

We took the kids out and about exploring our new town today.  We went to a couple of different walking trails and just enjoyed the sunshine and the experience.  The temperature was hovering in the 60s; we couldn’t have asked for a better day.

One of the areas we went to took us up high and we got a great look down on the town.

The pictures show it from two different directions.  Basically, town and the main park in town.  You can see that the snow is melting and spring is starting to peek out at us.

I can’t wait to see this place when everything turns green.  The town is loaded with walking trails and various open spaces.  I just know it’s going to be spectacular!

Home Sweet Home
