Why I choose Apples of gold in settings of silver

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.
