I think we need to celebrate! Not only is the quilt finished, but through linky, GFC and networked blogs I have 115 followers, and those are only the ones I know about! When I started this blog I thought the only ones who would ever read it were my friends and family but non of them "follow" my blog (I send them the links). I started this blog because I like to talk and love to teach. I had to stop teaching full-time because of my asthma and only get to teach my midweek child's bible study class now. I really do not have much "head knowledge" on this stuff, but love to share what I learn. I was not trained to be a homemaker growing up, my mom was a single mother who worked. I couldn't even cook very well when I got married. (Thank you cooking videos, cook books and older friends who were willing to help!) Now that I am a full-time homemaker I am learning how to cook from scratch, sew, quilt and other things I never had time for before. (Did I mention that I am busier now than when I worked?) If I could only get the housecleaning under control - but I'm working on it! This is why we decided that I needed to be a keeper of the home.
Titus 2:5 "To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed"
This verse is a hard verse to live and one that I am always striving to emulate. I've only been home for four years and love having a hot, healthy meal ready for my husband when he gets home. I love being able to sew my own clothes (although I am still slow at it), learning to quilt is a blast, and being able to see something I can't afford and saying "I can make that!" Is it perfect? No, but that's okay because I'm having fun! I'm not stressed and my asthma is under control. I am still waiting for children to adopt but it is all in the Lord's time (even though I do get antsy about it).
Okay, so enough talking and on to the giveaway!
To win the apron, leave me a comment telling me how you follow and any homemaking tips you have. I just might do a blog post sharing them! There are several ways to follow me, through email, blogger, Google Friend Connect and Linky. There is also Networked Blogs, but I miss a lot of posts of the blogs I follow through that because they don't always show up on FB - so it is not reliable. Just look to the left of my blog to join!
For an extra entry, share this giveaway, either through facebook or any way you want. Just leave me another comment telling me how you shared. This giveaway is for my followers only, so you must follow me to be entered in the giveaway. There are a couple of blogs hosting blog hops for giveaways, but did not join because I decided this would be a way to reward my faithful followers.
Thank you all for listening to my rambles on my blog and have a great weekend!
