I was pregnant my senior year of high school which surprised many because I was the quiet one in school. I had my daughter 3 months after I graduated. A year later I became a single mother.
I was a very strong independent women and raised my daughter to be that way. My husband and I were married a few months before my daughter turned 8 years old. I didn't NEED a husband, I CHOOSE to have a husband and that's what I used to tell my him when we fought. Actually, I use to say, "The door is right there. I don't need you. I was single mom once before I can do it again!" Prideful? Yes! See I was a stay at home mom when my daughter's father and I broke up, so everything I had, I earned myself as a single mom. I was determined not to be in hurt again.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast.
Ephesians 2: 8-9
Thank God for His gift!
I always believed in Jesus but never lived a Christian centered life nor knew what that really meant till recently. My husband and I found a wonderful church and have made a lot of changes in our lives in the last year. I don't mind submitting(Oh boy there's that nasty word lol)to my husband, letting him lead the family, and giving up most control(I'm still working on this). I work but I no longer mind staying home and cleaning the house.
I used to consider myself a Democrat. I felt like they cared more about the needy. You know just like Jesus. I felt like the Republicans only cared about themselves. I no longer consider myself a Democrat because I feel like they don't follow the bible. Yes, they care for the needy which I love(yes, some "needy" don't deserve the help because in actuality they're just lazy but I'm not talking about them)but there are so many other things they believe in that I'm totally against.
So would I call myself a conservative because they supposedly believe in the bible? That just didn't sit well in what my pastor calls my knower. Then I started thinking these terms really only describe political parties. I'm really not trying to describe my political stance but trying to describe my moral stance. Could my new ways of thinking be old fashion? It's pretty funny to think of me as old fashion. I think a great way to describe who I'm becoming is traditional, maybe just maybe a little old fashion?
So it is safe to say that this blog will be changing, maybe even the name.
