Qualities of a Biblical Spouse

So lately in our bible study we have been talking about what qualities you look for in a spouse. I had the assignment of writing 20 qualities of a future spouse, and I had to provide a biblical reference for each one.  I got all of my qualities from the book Proverbs. So here is what I came up with.

  6. A wise husband has a gentle tongue (12:18; 15:1-2,4)
  7. A wise husband is generous (14:21; 28:27)
  8. A wise husband is a man of integrity (19:1; 20:7)
  9. A wise husband is faithful and reliable (17:17; 29:3)
  10. A wise husband is forgiving (19:11)

  12. A wise husband is humble (15:25,33; 16:18-19; 18:12; 29:23)
  13. A wise husband is not contentious, but a peacemaker (17:1; 18:1,19)
  14. A wise husband has control of his temper (14:29; 16:32; 17:27; 29:11)
  15. A wise husband is a man who avoids excesses (20:1; 23:20-21, 29-35; 31:3-9)
  16. A wise husband has a concern for others, especially the poor and the oppressed (29:7)
  17. A wise husband can keep a confidence (17:9; 26:20)

I’m Thankful For……

Hello! So Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Can you believe it?  Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. (:  What are some of your favorite things about Thanksgiving? Mine would have to be the food, bring able to get together with my friends and family, the food, having a break from school, the food…. did I mention the food? (:

One of my favorite things to do in the month of November is our thankful tree. Basically we would take a poster of a tree, and paper leaves. Each day you would write one thing you are thankful for on a leaf and stick it onto the poster.

Well one of the many things I am thankful for is……….

My cousin, Aria.

We always have the best time when we get together.  When we get together, there is no telling what crazy thing we will do! There is never a boring moment when she is around.

Aria is also the first person I  turn to when something goes wrong.  If I’m having a bad day or having guys problems, she never fails to make me smile.

So what is something, (or someone) you are thankful for?

Aria stole my camera! 

We all had a great time. Big O loved all of her gifts, but her favorite was the violin!  She has been begging mom for lessons for years now. Ever since she saw one of our friends playing it in church.
And so now Big O will finally be able to play!

Pancake Experiment~No Eggs!

So today for lunch, I decided to make pancakes.  But, we had no eggs.  At all.
So began my pancake adventure!

Here is the recipe I used:

Ingredients

  • 4-1/2 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup white vinegar
  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 6 egg
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • cooking spray

Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to “sour”.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl.

Whisk egg and butter into “soured” milk (but I didn’t have any eggs, so I just added the butter)

 

TPhoto_00076

 

Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients

and whisk until lumps are gone (and there in the back ground is big O)

Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.

And here is my finished masterpiece!  That is powered sugar on top, because we never have syrup in our house! LOL

And, they turned out pretty good!  Mom, Dad, and all my siblings loved them.  :D

Yay!
