Slide show!

Yay--Andrew got these uploaded to You-Tube last night. :) (Thank you so much, Andrew!!!)

My family and I made this slide-show for my graduation, so the last pictures are almost 5 years old already... The time sure does fly by!

Aww, I really enjoyed watching you "grow up" in the slide-show! :D I bet we could have been great friends even when we were younger! ;)

I really enjoyed getting to see you with your family and friends and all. :) I saw you in the kitchen on there quite a bit! ;) Lol!

Thank you for sharing with us! And thank you Andrew for getting it working for her! :) Brothers are great! ;)

Love and Hugs Cora Beth!

I really liked these three post!
you were such a sweet little girl! I was surprised to see that you and your mother wore head coverings at one time. I really like your senior picture! That is the first time I have ever seen the west "green". When we were out there it was so brown. But we were in lower SD, so that could be a difference. All the pictures are so nice!
It was so fun to call you and sing to you. It is something that I will never forget. Me and Hannah like to call our dear friends on their birthday. I am so glad that we got over our shyness and called you! I feel like you are even more of a friend now that I heard your voice. You have been a blessing to get to know Cora! And I hope to get to know you better in the days to come.
love ya!

Dear friends,
I'm glad you too enjoyed watching the slide-show! My family and I hadn't seen it for a few years, so it was fun to watch it again with them. :)

You know, I think we would have been good friends even when we were smaller! Back then, I even had time to write 4 page long letters by hand (as part of my penmenship lessons...) :) I'm so grateful for e-mails now days AND blogs!!!!!
I have been in the kitchen a lot for as long as I can remember, so hopefully that means that I'm a good cook. :)

Yes, it does get green here in North Dakota once in a while--mostly in early spring. I'll try to get lots of green pictures to post on my blog when the time comes. It actually feels like spring now, as the snow is all melting and there's mud most everywhere. It's a real chore to clean Lady up before letting her in the house and I think, once it's a little warmer out, she may just stay outside until things dry off!

As I think I've said before, I'm so glad that you got up your courage to call! :) :) :) It was such a pleasant surprise! I too look forward to getting to know you better in the days ahead...

Yes, I thought you may be surprised to see that Mother and I used to wear a head covering! I wore one all the time from age 13 to when I was nearly 19. The reason Mom and I covered was that Mother wished to show we were in submission to my dad, but then many years later, we had a family discussion and realized that my dad did not desire for us ladies to wear the covering, so we were not actually under his headship by going against his wishes! It's been fun to try doing different things with my hair since then, but if he ever would desire us to cover again, (or if my future husband desires it,) I'll put the covering back on. That's our story in that area. I'm very curious about how you ladies came to be covered, or if your mother grew up covering?

I see it's a little past chores time already, so I'd best don my raincoat and head outside!

Love you (and thanks for the hug!)

Dear Cora,
I have worn a head covering for nine years.

The Glory of God is to be revealed and the glory of man is to be covered ( glory: What correctly represents something) What I believe the head covering is for,is a sign and symbol and a purpose that all may know that the glory of the Lord is to be seen in us and through us and the glory of man is to be covered. A woman is to cover her head when she is praying or prophesying.
I wear one all the time ( except, Showers, sleeping, letting my hair dry in the sunshine or fly in the wind, and fixing my hair...)Sometimes as I am going to bed I might put my blanket for a covering if I need to pray. God says to pray without ceasing. Prophesying is speaking the word of the Lord and that could be whenever He wants me to. So that is why I wear it all the time.
I use to think that I had to hide all my hair but, I think that that is not what the covering is for. I do not think that the covering is to hide my hair from others. Wearing a head covering is something that my God has instructed me to do in this life and if no one else around me is doing the same as me, I will keep on doing what He has called me to do. All my friends do not wear one. I still love them because God loves them and sees their heart. God is working in all of us and bringing us all closer to Himself each day.

I think that it is a very feminine thing to wear. I have worn many different kinds through the years. My sister and mother and I all have our different ways of wearing ours. I like to look at pictures of ethnic groups of people and see how they cover their heads and this gives me an idea how I can do it. My mother has been wearing one for maybe... 18 years?. that is a guess :)
Thanks for asking Cora,I if you have any more questions feel free to ask!
