The Intention of My Blog

Welcome, my beloved readers!

In case you're wondering, it's not a typo up there for you see the definition of goodly is:

used as an adjective to describe something
1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I am a mother who home educates her children; I would be pleased if you'd look around. You never know if I might have something to your liking. I've blogged about different topics. I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Please remember to subscribe to my blog, using any variety of methods, which are below to the right, including Facebook.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

What Would I Tell My Younger Self?

The following is my response to a blog dare prompt:

I would tell myself to chill out!
I have noticed that the worst thing I have done is worry about things that have never happened.  When those bad things have happened, I have overcome them, anyway. 

I would tell myself that I was pretty.
I looked decent back then, but I never believed it.  There were many individuals who picked on me because of my looks.  I think it may have been because of my nose which is not big, but I always thought it was big.  I think it is a Roman nose like probably of German stock.  I look at pictures from the past, and I realize that I did not look ugly.

I would also tell myself that eventually I'll have a nice little family of my own.
I have a wonderful husband and four children, each with their own personalities.  My husband is well respected in his field of welding.  At times, his reputation precedes him.  He is in high demand.  My children are healthy most of the time and none are developmentally behind.  They don't require ongoing medical treatments.  I truly feel blessed to have such a loving family.

Finally, I would tell myself that I do deserve to be loved.
I was abused several times, and that left many scars.  Now that I am older, I know what the Bible says about God's children.  He loves them unconditionally.  I, as a person who accepts Jesus as my King and Savior, am a child of God.  I accept His love with open arms.

My friends and family, what would you tell your younger selves?

I hope that you would have some wisdom to pass down to the younger generation around you.

Blessings of peace to you all, my beloveds.
