Anniversary Trip

I can't believe it has been almost 7 years I have been married. DH and I are in Lancaster, PA for the weekend to celebrate our marriage and to go to an exciting bible fellowship meeting on Sunday.

We arrived late yesterday (Friday) and got settled in our hotel. We relaxed for a bit and then went to the Windmill restaurant so I could have Pork and Sauerkraut over Mashed Potatoes...delish!! I don't get to have that very often because DH doesn't like the smell or taste of sauerkraut. We drove around a little while and enjoyed the country air. I love it out here. I love the acres of farm land just sprouting and the little farmhouses with Peonies blooming all over. We grabbed some Apple Dumplings for dessert back at the hotel and had a lovely evening.

I am so excited for today! We are going to the Sight and Sound Theater and we are going to see the play "Abraham and Sarah: A Journey of Love." On the drive up here we listened to the book of Genesis and heard from the very beginning to the time of Jacob. It is so wonderful to have a husband who respects God and loves His Word. I am a blessed, blessed woman!!

After the show we are going to look around at some of the Amish country shops and hopefully find a wedding ring quilt in our price range.

I will be back with pictures!!!

God Bless

Spring has Sprung!!

My schooling is almost done for the semester. I am going to be focusing on my home for the summer and hopefully hosting my little brothers for a couple of weeks so my parents can celebrate my Mom's 50th birthday.

There is a lot to do in my home. It has been made even more clear by the current moving project of my dear friend Mary at Turkey Farm Treasures. I was able to help her with a yard sale and saw how much she was condensing her life to the things she enjoys and finds useful.

What perfect timing then that Simple Mom is starting her Spring Cleaning Party this week!! I have Simple Mom's book, Spring Cleaning for Normal People but have never followed through with all the steps. Now is the time! If not now, when?

So, I will be participating in Simple Mom's Cleaning Party with enthusiasm. Here we go!!

A successful first college class!

I just finished my first college class after 10 years out of school. Out of 1000 available points I got 1010!

There is something to be said for committing My time and energy fully to something.

I am still finishing my second class, but I think I'm getting an "A" in that class too.

I am looking forward to having a summer at home committing my time to De-cluttering my home and making it a haven for my husband and myself.

Titus 2:3-5 Amplified Bible

I love the Amplified Bible for it's expanded translations of the KJV. It is the first place I go when I want a deeper understanding of the verses I'm looking at. With all the resources on the internet, there is never a reason to miss out on the different translations.

Titus 2:3-5 (Amplified Bible)

Bid the older women similarly to be reverent and devout in their deportment as becomes those engaged in sacred service, not slanderers or slaves to drink. They are to give good counsel and be teachers of what is right and noble,

So that they will wisely train the young women to be sane and sober of mind (temperate, disciplined) and to love their husbands and their children,

To be self-controlled, chaste, homemakers, good-natured (kindhearted),adapting and subordinating themselves to their husbands, that the word of God may not be exposed to reproach (blasphemed or discredited).

What a great expanded understanding to be gained from this translation. I will go in more depth on each verse as time goes on. I am really enjoying this study so far.

God Bless,
Rean Day

Pursuing Titus 2

After being a SAHW and part-time student for several months now I have determined I want to further my understanding of Titus 2 and Proverbs 31. I need to put God's Word in practice in my life. I want look at what is expected from the young women as well as the aged because I am getting closer and closer to that end of the spectrum.

I want this first post to be a simple quotation of Titus 2:3-5 which speaks directly to the women of this day and this time. I will be taking some time to research the specifics of this section of scripture soon.

Titus 2:3-5

The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh
holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good

That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands,
to love their children,

To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient
to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

God Bless you,

Rean Day

Exciting News! I'm a SAHW!

"Cottage Stream" by Sung Kim from

After long discussions and deep consideration my DH and I decided it was time for me to leave my job as a legal secretary. I have never made such a difficult decision in my life. I am glad I had the support of my husband and my family. It has been a long journey to this point but I am looking forward to the challenges ahead.

There have been several things I have already learned about coming home and I am anxious to share those things, as well as the many challenges I am sure will come in the days, weeks and months ahead.

I am thrilled with the changes going on around here and excited to share my journey with anyone who will listen.

Hold on folks, this is going to be a wild ride!
