(and some interesting articles).
A relative of mine is currently in hospital, recovering from surgery. Your prayers are appreciated. I'm afraid I'm not capable of writing anything coherent at the moment, so I'll just refer you to some interesting articles and discussions instead.
Bruce Charlton in his post on immodest dress discusses warm weather immodesty and the hideous practice of extreme tattooing.
The blog called "Secular Patriarchy" has an article which deals with the reasons of the decline of marriage in the West. The author did a great job collecting statistical data on the labour force participation of married women in the USA, starting with the 1890s, which, by the way, utterly refutes the idiotic argument put forth by the feminists and some men's rights'activists that nearly all married women used to work until the 1950s when they were all suddenly locked at home by their husbands. The truth is, the labour force participation of married women grew throughout the XXth century, from 2.2% in the 1890 to nearly 30% in the 1960.
I'd also like to draw your attention to this discussion on vaccination. By some reason, this topic seems to be extremely controversial, and the anti-vaccine people are more often than not treated as heretics. Zippy Catholic provides a rather balanced view on the whole vaccine issue.
The Thinking Housewife, as usual, had some great posts. I'd especially like to recommend this one where a young woman asks advice about living traditional life.
UPDATE: My relative's condition has worsened so that she will need another operation. Please keep us in your prayers.
May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.ReplyDelete
By the stripes of the Lord Jesus we were healed.
He was wounded and crushed for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace. He was whipped, and we were healed.
The same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead gives life to our mortal bodies.
We shall live and not die and declare the glory of the Lord.
For the Lord God is our sun and shield, The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will he withhold from those who walk uprightly.
The Lord God is your strength; He will make your feet like deer's feet. And He will make you walk on your high hills.
God has not give us a spirit of fear but a spirit of Power, love and a sound mind.
He gives power to those who are tired and worn out He offers strength to the weak. Even youths will become exhausted, and young men will give up But those who wait on the Lord will find new strength. They will fly high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
The Word of God is living and powerful and sharper then any two edged sword. In the name of the Lord Jesus The Christ I release the power of His Word typed here into your life. Amen.
Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised and his greatness is unsearchable.
If I were there with you I would cook for you and clean for you, sit quietly with you and give you lots of big hugs.
Thanks, Shaolin! I'm OK, just was a bit down last Saturday. My relative seems to be doing better, PTL.Delete
