Enemy attack...warning

  The enemy attacks us, how some might ask?. You may know the assailant well or you may not, could be a family member, friend, co-worker, just someone in the parking lot at the store. Who ever the enemy uses we must be ready. The word of God says: Ephesians 6:11 Put on God's whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.  Any attack would be putrid: a backstab, a dis, a verbal snipe, slander just an outright attempt by the enemey to remove your head & knock you off your game. Whatever its method, the aim is quick and dirty; you look down to discover a slow leak of blood forming a red pool at your feet, you have been hit.  But we are victorious & standing firm with the our feet shod prcolaiming the word of God.

  Often I tell brides to be on the alert during their wedding because the enemy knows we are emotional creatures. Because getting married is a major life transition, it is natural to experience high levels of emotion. So the enemy will send out his darts aiming straight for the brides heart. Sometimes through family, mother, sister, wedding party whomever to get her off the focus that this is from God. 

  If we completely ignore the spiritual realm and the fact that the Bible tells us our battle is against spiritual powers we will be lost.  So how? First, we rely on God’s power, not our own. Second, we rebuke in Jesus’ Name, not our own there is no power in that!. Third, we protect ourselves with the full armor of God.  And we wage warfare with the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God (as stated above). We know how Jesus handled attacks from Satan when He was tempted by him in the wilderness Matthew 4:1-11.  Each temptation was answered the same way; with the words “It is written.” Jesus knew the Word of God is the most powerful weapon against the devil. If Jesus used the Word to fight the devil, do we dare use anything less? "Guds ord" means word of God in Swedish Have a wonderful day!!!!

What is Modesty and why is it so important for the woman to understand, dress & behave modestly?  Definition: modesty is the voluntary personal responsibility to behave & dress in such a manner as to not purposely draw attention to oneself, to not think proudly of oneself and it's a decision to protect from purposeful or "unintended" enticement in inappropriate ways & places. First we're representatives of the LORD Jesus Christ and secondly, if we're married, we are a reflection of our husband. I tell my husband that all the time. Ladies even on your wedding day, we must remeber that we are getting married, for his eyes only! This the most not talked about topic among women today. Why is something that is commanded in Scripture even questioned by God's people? hmmm...Although there is much to be said concerning this issue I will keep it short and sweet. I am not a novist/or a fashion consultant I know what I espy daily be it at work, church, in the grocery store, mall etc.  How tight is too tight? how short is too short? how low is too low?” my question today is “What is God´s best for you to wear?” what does God´s Word say:  In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. 1 Timothy 2:9-10.

As woman we love to look good and there is nothing wrong with that. We are beautiful and our beauty should be shown on the inside as well as the outside. So when we are picking attire to wear we should be choosen clothing that is age appropriate, and adequately sized. Trust me it is very important that we pay attention to the message and signal our clothing is sending. So ladies dress your best and wear what is most accomodating for you. We can dress professional and still look amazing. We are fabulous and must be consious of our attire not just at church, but work and were ever we tread our feet. We are woman hear us roar...please don't roar but you can purrr! you are beautiful -" tu es belle" in french.

Yesterday I spoke on the ringbearer. Today I want to speak on a subject that most woman find difficult in deciding sometimes. Choosing a bridsemaid, the question is always posed "should I have my sister, cousin, bestfriend, and I don't want to step on anybody's toes".  Let's define the bridesmaid, she is an unmarried woman who attends to the bride on her wedding day.  Bridesmaid and Maid of Honor help in planning the wedding and also helping the bride coordinate details for the wedding day.  More than that a bridesmaid and/or maid-of-honor serves a practical purpose. During the hectic time of planning a wedding, she is a confidant, advice giver, giving support, errand runner and much more. A bride should have at least one bridesmaid who is very reliable, cheerfully helpful, organized, and who lives close to the bride. I would suggest praying about who you choose it helps! because a good bridesmaid also makes sure she is helpful rather than a hindrance. This means being where she needs to be on time, ordering her bridesmaid dress at the right time, and just making sure everything flows for the bride. 

There is a considerable expenses involved in being a bridesmaid, which includes cost of dress, shoes, and hosting the wedding shower or bachelorette party. Who ever you choose make sure they are going to be responsible and dedicated to helping you, this truly means alot in such an emotional time for the bride. I thank God  for the two woman who attended my wedding, because they were so dedicated, helpful,  loving supportive, Love the Lord and the best thing was the HOLY SPIRIT lead me in my decision. Har velsignet dag means "Have Blessed day" in Norwegian.

So you think all you need to know about Ring Bearers is - how to choose one, to getting him ready to do a great job, and finding an adorable outfit or suit..Maybe! The ringbear let's define he or she job?
Depending on the location, religion, and style of the wedding, the wedding party may include only the individual people that are marrying, or it may include one or more brides, grooms (or bridegrooms), persons of honor, bridespersons, best man, groomsmen, flower girls, and ringbearers.
The ringbearer is the cutie pie that holds the ring usually a small boy, sometimes a little girl, who walks down the aisle as part of the bridal procession carrying an ornamental cushion with ring fastened to cushion. The ringbearer does not necessarily have to carry a cushion, the bride can be creative. I had my nephew holding a long stem silver rose that open up on the top. Ok! so here is the scenerio you have two little men that you want to use.  If you are having trouble choosing between the two ring bearers, there's no reason why you can't have them both. Give them each a ring to carry and send them down the aisle together. Some ringbearers seem to have nervousness on the day of nuptials, I would recommend seating his parents on the aisle, near the front so that he can see them when he walks down the aisle and during the ceremony itself, which gives him assurance of knowing once I reach my parents this is all over...LOL.  What should they wear? Some people love the look of "mini-groomsmen" where the ring bearer wears a tiny tuxedo matching the groomsmen. I had my ringbearer matching my husband he was so cute. Whom ever you choose, have fun with it do your wedding in your style and just remember some of the tips listed." Hagoonea" - goodbye in Navajo Indian.
