from the interweb for a while. I like to do this from time to time to focus on more important things - Yahuah, reading Scripture/seeking wisdom, relationships, and learning in general (including college work). I don’t know how long it will be, but, the longer the better. If you’d like me to pray for you or anything specific send me a message or ask, I’ll pray for everyone regardless, but I want to focus on lifting up needs of others to Yahuah in this time, so I’m completely open to requests (always).
I’ll see it in an e mail, (since I have to check for classes) so don’t worry if I won’t see it before I’m “gone”. I am also always accepting prayer for myself and my life, it’s always appreciated. I need it, always, and that’s a big reason I’m doing this.
Anyway, enough of my blab.
Shalom to all (:
There’s a radio station called “Jews for Jesus” aired around here and I found most of what was said interesting. Random thought… I guess.
I’m fairly certain I have Cameron as a friend on Facebook and oh he’s from Minnesota. That must be why… I knew he looked familiar.
If not, I’ll be somewhat upset.
When people get engaged I find that the first question on (at least the women’s) peoples minds is, “WHERE’S THE RING?!”
I know that there are many different marriage cultures. From cattle offerings, arranged marriage, western tradition to many other things… But looking at western culture, I get a little upset.
Most people base marriage off the ring given to the woman. (Or man, depending on who proposes, I guess… More traditionally a man asks a woman’s family to “take her away & care for her”)
I’m not exactly sure how the ring thing started, but maybe it was something like the cattle offering. What is a man willing to “pay” for a woman via jewelry.
That’s how I see it, now a days. Of course, that’s my opinion. I know there are people who do it just to follow tradition. Does anything need to be exchanged besides vows to Yah and governmental laws?
Isn’t the exchange of a ring starting things off a little shallow…? A little materialistic, perhaps?
When two courting people decide on getting married and the excitement occurs within both family’s etc. It should be about the two people and Yah. Not about a ring, the place of the wedding, the flowers, the dress etc.
So, why are people holding onto pagan traditions? Doesn’t The Word speak against that? Doesn’t it actually say women aren’t to wear any jewelry except when they are given by her husband? (So, after they are married - not as a ‘wedding promise’). I could be off, but I had a basic understanding of such.
So, as much as I really find engagements to be exciting and especially for women it’s flattering to be offered jewelry. It’s a temptation I don’t really want to drive me to say “oh, it’s ok it’s what everyone else does! It’s not bad, you’re overlooking the purpose. Etc”. I don’t want those thoughts. I want to do what’s right, and I don’t know 100% every “right” thing. But I know I want to please Yah, and I want to have a marriage and relationship that starts with only the 3 of us - with my future husband and I under Yah’s laws. I don’t want it started out focused on silly material items and things that fade away. I want beautiful memories, but that doesn’t need to start off with glamorous things.
I don’t think people who do use rings are horrible or anything silly like that. I just disagree with the pagan traditions and do not want to be part of them in order to follow Yah. Even if there was no logical reasoning (according to human) for something in the Law, I’d want to follow it, merely because I respect, trust and love Yah’s commands and I want to follow them diligently. That’s my personal choice, and it’s not my job to tell people they’re wrong for what they do, but I’m always open for discussion to share my opinions and listen to others.

The Siberian Flying Squirrel photographed by Masatsugu Ohashi can be found in Russia, China, Japan, North and South Korea, as well as a few other countries. They tend to live in spruce, cider, or pine trees and they depend on the trees for their housing and food. Siberian flying squirrels are currently listed as near threatened and they are rapidly decreases due to deforestation of the trees they so fully rely on [text source]
