The children and me have spent the greater half of our day baking cookies for tomorrows Faith group. We made Thumb prints with kisses, peanut butter cookies ( Jeffs fav ), chocolate chip with pecans, Amish sugar cookies, chocolate covered pretzels, and puppy chow. it was alot of work and now we get to enjoy :) I think the kids only ate the batter and licked the spoons. Even Chase was eating the dough. We are having such a great time with all the holiday things we have been doing. Last night we made snow flakes only to find out the we were doing them wrong- according to my husband. So he showed us the " right " way to do them and we got done just to have Chase come flying through in his walker and ripped every single one of them up. We will try again tonight.
We went to Santas Magical Kingdom last week and the kids got their pictures taken with Santa.Well Ethan freaked out and chose to stay connected to Dad so hes not in the picture. it was Ethan and Chases first time there and they starred out the window in AHHHHH over the lights.
We went to some theft store yesterday and found some really nice long skirts for Hannah. Not so much stuff for the boys yesterday. I did happen to find a few homeschool books that I was looking for on e-bay and was bidding close to 15 dollars for a set and found all 3 sets for 3 dollars. And they look like they haven't been used at all. I was so excited. Then I found some readers for Cody that will work out great for us.
Now on to important stuff . WE have been reading and following the bible with much studying and praying. We have come to the part of head covering Here is where we are at...
1 Cor 11?
Lets read the text first:
1 Corinthians 111 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.Propriety in Worship2 I praise you for remembering me in everything and for holding to the teachings, just as I passed them on to you.3 Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. 4 Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. 5 And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is just as though her head were shaved. 6 If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head. 7 A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. 8 For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; 9 neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. 10 For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head.11 In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12 For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God. 13 Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14 Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, 15 but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering. 16 If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice—nor do the churches of God. NIV
We are praying about this and if God is pulling us in this direction thats great. I know im here to please Him and he has a reason for pushing us on this walk. I read and read and find myself really searching for answers and I feel like they are getting answered.
