Head-coverings! Is the topic.

Head-coverings. This has been a topic laying on my heart for a long time now and it just keeps growing. In the bible, in the book of

1 Corinthians 11: 5But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

11:6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.


So you see Paul is speaking here about how a woman should cover her head when she prays or prophesies or she should be shaven.   But then, 


1 Corinthians 11:13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered?

Paul is asking a question here also about head-coverings.  He asks is it comely?  Lets see what that word "Comely" means.  Lets look to the Strong's Concordance for what the Greek word is for "Comely" in this question.  The Greek word is πρέπω meaning prepó (prep'-o) a verb meaning "tower up," &quo…

Field Trips this Summer

Me and my little boy have been on a few trips this summer.  All of them day trips and mostly free.  Exploring is what we do the best.  He has such a since of freedom in the great outdoors.  The bible tells us to raise them in the way they should go. So I am hoping that I will be able to do that. His father and I are sure trying our best to accomplish this by showing him different things around us and having him to appreciate all that God has to offer.  Here are a few pictures of the day trips this summer.

Crabtree Falls in Mitchell County, NC

The other trail is flat until you come to the end of it and then its a downward hike off the side of the mountain, with not much of a trail.  We had a great day and enjoyed the t…

Blessings

Well here I am at it again.  I don't write often but when I do its because I have something that I need to share. Today I am  going to be writing about blessings.  I go through everyday and don't even realize what blessing are being bestowed upon me daily.  I don't go throughout the day looking for them, that is for sure.  But I see them when my day is done and thank the Lord for giving them to me. 

What is a blessing? Merriam-Websters defines it as....
: approval that allows or helps you to do something
: help and approval from God
: something that helps you or brings happiness
Blessings can come in all shapes and forms.  It can come in as praise, devotion, worship, grace, mercy, a divine gift, or even a special favor.  
One of my favorite bible verses is this Philippians: 4:19But MYGod shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory byJesus Christ.
Our every need has been supplied throughout every day. …
