Tattoo’s

Do you have one?

I so do not.

Not yet.

Not sure if I will ever get one.

But I have wanted one long before I was ever a Christian,

and I have wanted one ever since I became a Christian.

Is it wrong to have a tattoo?

Might depend on who you talk to.

I know in my “circle” it would be considered wrong.

It is one of those No No’s.

One of those, make sure you hide that thing.

But is it wrong?

Might depend like I said, on who you talk to.

Some say it is graffiti and you are marking up God’s temple.

1Cr 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
1Cr 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Some say it is decorating God’s temple.

Who is right?

Who is wrong?

Yep, I know, I do not have scripture to back up allowing tattoo’s….

Is it one of those gray area’s like head covering, dresses, etc?

Is it decoration?

or

Is it graffiti?

But, I do want one, an arm band of some sort with my children’s names entwined in some way.

I wonder how many friends I will loose?

Musings

So, I am hanging out today with my kiddos. We are working on laundry and playing the Wii and just messing around.

I am trying to figure out where to go to church tonight ( we are still church shopping ).

I am reading blogs, and trying to remember that I am a child of God.

I do not always make time for God.

I know, ya all thought I was perfect right?

Well,

I am not

My grammar is not all that good.

I forget punctuation.

I also forget to remember to dot my eyes, good thing my computer does it for me.

I will put now when I mean know and know when I mean now.

I forget that my bible is not just another book. It does collect dust at times.

Why is it, when we are down in the valley, we tend to cry out to God and pray more and also read more searching for His ways.

But when we are up on the mountain, we forget that He is there? We forget to give Him the glory?

I know my family has been trying to keep away from legalism, but, are we keeping ourselves from God?

I really hope not. I hope we find our church home, that it will be home. I am praying that my children will walk in His ways and not my husband and my ways.

I do pray for my husband and children daily. I pray that they find mates in life that will help them grow further with Christ. I pray that my husband and children will have that personal walk with Him, one that only they can have,

I am trying to figure out which direction to take this blog. Do I just put my musings and life here. Do you think I should have pics here or just on my photography blog? ( Well, that is ore for business at the moment )

I think I just answered my own question sorry,

I have had a couple of shoots already and I am liking how they are turning out. I am still needing more experience. So, as soon as I have my DBA, I will branch out and offer myself out for services. I think I am ready.

I love my life. I work and somedays that does sadden me, but I do enjoy my job. I enjoy doing what I do.

Somedays I really HATE my job.

I love being a wife and a mother. I love the roles that I am playing now. No one else is better fitted to play Ginger yet.

Maybe Julia Roberts,

But, I would need to seriously loose a ton of weight to get there

I am still debating on weight loss surgery. I think I am now ready for it.

Nothing I am doing is working for me. Maybe I ought to ask God for that help eh?

maybe I will…

I have realized, you do not have to wear a skirt to be a Christian, nor do you have go to church. I do believe that where 2 or more are gathered in His name, he is there with us.

I believe the KJV is the ONLY inspired word of God ( I KNOW I KNOW I owe a post on that)

I do believe in most of the Baptist doctrine.

I do believe that there is ONLY one way to get to heaven and that path is narrow.

Ok, i think I am done with this post….

till next time……

Photo shoots

or in other words WHY I am silent!

I am seriously not trying to be!

I have been working mega hours at work, then adding in shoots and then editing times, I have been busy!

I thought I would just show you what I have been doing!

I will also link where I am at as well……

I mean really, how could I pass up shoot with these adorable faces?

Would you?

Here are some more,

Is this not a great looking family? I am so LOVING THEM!!

And, ya know, I could not forget my own right?

I gots to add in one of my womb dwellers at some point in a post, right?

Oh yea, where you can find me…. check in HERE

Life

Celebrating 9 years is a long time now a days in a life between a man and a woman. Married.

For some odd reason, it just amazed me when I am told so and so is getting a divorce.

I wonder why a lot of times. What is the real issue.

The message I heard at church tonight was a really good one. Basically it was on the premise of “It’s All About Me.” That is so  me.

We here in America, maybe even Canada, Europe, we live in this mentality it is all about me. What is in it for me. We do not even begin to think about Him.

or

Them. The Lost.

When was the last time you prayed that someone would get saved?

When was the last time I prayed for salvation for my family?

When was the last time I put my husband first, my children first before my wants and needs?

I am selfish and I admit it.

Oh sure, I do certain things for my husband and children,  But I have this mentality.  This “ME” mentality.

I admit God is not first in my life.

I admit it because I do not want to be dishonest on this blog. I want to be upfront about it.

I need to put God first

But,

So

Do

You!

I began thinking,

Yea I know,

thinking is not something I do well….

I love this skit by Lifehouse. I really think it shows what Christ is about. What He does for you and I, and them.

It is older and I know I have shown it before on a blog or 2….

But, it makes me think each time.

I know……

I want to put Him first in my life and I want to put Them first in my life.

Pray for me, will ya?

Please?
