What Style of Decorating do you all like as well as your family?

What Style of Decorating Do you all like as well as your family like? I know that My Family and I like the HomeMade/County Lived In Comfortable to our Family look and Inviting. We live in a Small Home and We live on a Very Tight Income at this time. We still have our Home to Pay Off fully off and then we will be Totally Debt Free. So I am trying to work around our Budget to decorate with mostly things we already have or have the time and a little bit of Spending Money to buy the things we need as well as sometimes the things we want. We also love to Collect Antiques. We were given a Nice Rug to put in our Living Room that My Sister had bought but she could no longer use it so she gave it to us. Now our Living Room is starting to look more Like my Family and I want it to. I also on occassion will go to Dollar General one of My Favorite Stores and Buy Silk Flowers to use around our Home to Give it more of the Look My Family and I enjoy. Does anyone want to share what there Decorating Style as well as there Family's style of Decorating maybe or even any tips, advice, or Suggestions?

What Does JOY mean to you?

What Does JOY mean to you? I found a Really Neat Meaning of JOY that I want to share with you all. I also wanted to ask you all what Does JOY mean to you? The Really Neat Meaning of JOY goes likes this. Jesus Others You. I should be Serving Jesus first give him my first Fruits. Then I should be Serving Others . Finally the You comes in meaning that is the time you can take of you( or as in my case I take care of me). Jesus is my All in All.

My Favorite Bible Verses

My Favorite Bible Verses from the Book of Proverbs Chapter 31 verses 11 and 12 KJV(KingJamesVersion) verse 11 says The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her,so that he shall have no need of spoil. This verse to me means that The Proverbs 31 Wife & Mother is fullfilling the Role and Ministry God has called her to do. To me this verse also means that her husband can trust her to do the best things and the right things for her Family because he knows that she is going to do what is best and what God has lead her to do as well as be Submissive to her own husband. Verse 12 says She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. This verse to me means she seeks to Honor Him and Respect him . She seeks to be the Best Wife she can be, She seeks to be Submissive to Her Own Husband. She seeks to Help Him in all areas of the Home she is a Good Home Manager. She is thrifty,She shops for good things and not bad things that would harm her and her family.

My Covenant's With God Copied from the Book A Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George

My Covenant's With God Copied from the Book A Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George *1. I will get up before my Family in order to prepare myself spiritualy and physically. *2. I will prepare breakfast for my family and sit with them while they eat. 3. I will work Dilligently to send every member of my family off in a good mood. 4. I will consult my husband everyday to see if there is anything special he wants me to do for him. 5. I will keep a neat and orderly home. 6. I will respond positively. 7. I will meet my husband's needs. *8. I will put my husband before my children. 9. I will personaly meet and greet each family member as he or she returns home. *10. I will be predictably happy. 11. I will prepare special,good food for my family. *12. I will always make dinner-time a special time. *13. I will grow daily in the areas of the Lord, marriage, family, and homemaking.* The ones with the Stars* by them are the Most Important One's to me for me to work on . This is a Covenant that Helps me to realize I am not in this Job alone and I just don't do this job for my Dear Sweet Husband or my Children I do it for God first and Formost, then for Dear Sweet Husband and then for My Children. JOY(Jesus Others then You) that is what JOY means in my Life.

Bible Verse's that help me out and encourage me..

BibleVerse's that help me out and encourage me.. All the Bible Verses that Help me out and encourage me are going to be out of the King James Version. Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me,My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. These verses really minister to me at this time in my life. Another Bible Verses that Minister to Me as well as my DearHusband and Child is out of the Book of Galatians Chapter 6 verses 9 and 10. Galatians 6:9-10 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore oportunity,let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. Well that is all of them at this time. I will ask God to lay more verses that minister to my Family and I on my heart and list them later on in another post. What Bible Verses help you out and are an encouragement to you and and your Family?

Viewing what God has Called me to Do as a Blessing and Not a Burden.

Viewing what God has Called me to Do as a Blessing and Not a Burden. I am a Stay at Home Wife first. I am also a Stay at Home Momma. I am also a Stay at Home Homemaker and HomeschoolTeacher. I often times find myself very discouraged and not wanting to be home taking care of our home , and my Family. The reason I often times find myself so discouraged and not wanting to take care of my Family and Home is because I leave God out of the Picture until the End of the Day. God should be the first in my Life not the Last and he should not get the Leftovers he should get the First Fruits of all I do. Then I can serve my Beloved Darling Husband and DarlingDaughter and other Family Members with True Happiness and Cheer and Sweet Attitude and a Sweet Manner. My Husband,Daughter and the Rest of My Family Deserves to have Me in a Good Happy Mood so they in Return will be in a Good Happy Mood. I have found that when I don't Give God the First Fruits of all I do Everyone Suffers Especially Me. I will choose to be Up Early to Give God all my First Fruits from Now on. I will Choose Peace, Joy, Cheery Attitude , Actions and Manners, I will choose True Happiness . I will choose Contentment and Most of all I will be in God's Will for my life as well as the Life of my Family.
