Welcome to my blog. I been reading blogs now for atleast 2 years and for the longest time have thought about starting a blog. After thinking about it for sometime I finally came up with a name and started a blog. I have always enjoyed journalling and writting . But since becoming a mother I have found it hard to do this. But I figure since I spend time reading blogs, I might as well start one and be writting one as I read others. I figured that this will also be a great way to keep a journal at the same time.
Being a pefectionist I had to make sure that my blog name had a catchy name with a ring to it. I had serveral names from princess Dairies , reflections, white as snow, silver reflections.
The winner was Apples of Gold in Settings of Silver. From Proverbs 25:11.
The reason that I choose that name is because I believe that it best reflects me and the colours that I love. As the theme in my kitchen is apples and is painted green and my dining room and living room is a reddish colour with silver accents. When we got engaged and married our rings where silver and our wedding colours where also a reddish colour with sliver accents.
When thinking of a blog I wanted my blog to ultimately give honour and glory to God. So I searched the Bible to see how I could use the words silver and red and green and I came across Proverbs 25:11. At the same time to me it had a sweet smelling ring to it.
Being a perfectist i'm still looking for the perfect blog design with out having to pay for it. Any help is welcomed
In Proverbs 25:11 apples are refered to a decorative motif of jewerly, similar to the familiar "proerganate pattern(ex 39:24-25; 1 Kings 7:18). The image represents godly speech (a word fitly spoken. A wise reprover to a listening ear ( Prov 9:8b-p) is like gold jewerly, that is stunningly beautiful and valuable. Taken from the ESV Bible concordance.
Lord, I pray that this blog will be a blog that is fitly spoken and may those who read this be a listening ear especailly when I know there may be time I need to vent. But may it be stunningly beautiful and vaulable to all those who read it.
