On Sticking Out Like a Sore Thumb

Christian mothers are very, very persecuted.  I have just been finding out the extent of this persecution recently.

I go to the grocery store, to the doctor, to the post office and everywhere the comment is, "Wow!  You really have your hands full!  How close together are they?  Are you going to have any more?"  Some people smile at little children and are gratified to see a little sanity left in the world in the form of my "large" family, others are absolutely scandalized that I have "chosen" to have three children and they feel they must share these feelings with me and warn me not to have any more (children) for the sake of my health, our finances and at the "expense" of society.  I think the latter response is partially due to the fact that these people assume every child is going to public school and taking advantage of every government grant and they believe the propaganda that babies must be born via planned surgery and thus destroy the mother's health.

So many lies!

We are fed this religion of "tolerance" in regard to any horrible sin or blasphemy and then when it comes to Christianity, the tables are turned on us.  There is no tolerance for Christian families.

We bother people.

This is a very good sign.  It means that we are doing something right.  We can have Christian pride in what we do.  Christian pride is necessary to endure these assaults on our rights as children of God and Christian parents.  Furthermore, we have grace.  We admit that life cannot be planned.  We submit to Divine Providence and we have the guidance and reassurance of tradition and the Church.  Revolutionaries are obsessed with planning everything, from their children to their death and thus they are morbidly superficial, motivated by fear, and often suicidal.

I will tell you what is a scandal and absolute child abuse: denying children a natural mother and father and neglecting their Christian education.  This type of horrible situation is occurring everywhere.  In-vitro fertilization is a common measure to "cure" infertility.  So called "gay couples" are legally allowed to adopt and "raise" children.  They are even allowed to give birth to children by insane and abusive measures.  There are numerous examples of this unspeakable horror.  Then there are "sex education" classes in grade schools that teach children lies that no one needs to know.  There are hormone and sex changes that are given to underage children to "switch" their gender.  They are allowed to dress and act like the opposite sex.  A great majority of these children commit suicide before they are adults or undergo multiple surgeries and psychological treatments to find out "who they really are".  This extreme neglect and perversion is demonic child abuse.  These are the poor children who need to be rescued.

Truth is objective.  Everyone deserves the truth.

Christians bother people for having children and raising them in a safe, holy environment.  We stick out like a sore thumb for doing so.  But who is the sane one in this picture?  Christians for accepting truth and elevating our human nature to the divine restraint of God's laws, or those people who reject every institution and prefer their unnatural fancies and chaotic anarchy.

We need to vehemently oppose and enlighten ignorant people as to the ACTUAL child abuse that is going on in our midst, protected by law and public institutions.

On Fall Fashion

When it comes to fashion, Fall is my favorite season to dress!  I absolutely LOVE the deep warm colors, the plaids, and the fair isle knits!  It is a pleasant coincidence that with cooler weather usually comes more modest clothing.

I put together a few inspirational picture ideas below and I would love you to contribute with your favorite Fall ideas!  Please let us know what brings Fall into your life in the comments below!

Fall is nothing without British Country Clothing: http://www.houseofbruar.com/

Perfect Fall Style in my opinion is Emilia Fox's wardrobe in the Acorn Media documentary The Queen.

Austrian and German dress is not any less romantic in an Autumn setting!
Yes, a burgundy paisley scarf is quite necessary.


And once you're dressed, enjoy the weather!

Princess Beatrice is such a lovely example of cool weather elegance in this photo!
Here is a really cute idea for all those adorable baby pumpkins at the grocery store.
Or the table.  Thanksgiving?

And a cozy fireplace is SO necessary for these shorter evenings...
Last of all, do not neglect the hand knitted socks.  I've done it and it is worth all thirty hours of tiny needles!

Almost 900 doctors sign Dublin Declaration, affirm abortion is not maternal health

"Almost 900 medical professionals have now signed the Dublin Declaration on Maternal Health, launched in 2012 to declare that abortion is not needed to save women's lives.
Unveiled at the International Symposium on Maternal Healthcare in Dublin, Ireland, the Declaration states: “As experienced practitioners and researchers in obstetrics and gynecology, we affirm that direct abortion – the purposeful destruction of the unborn child – is not medically necessary to save the life of a woman..."

A Weekend In Feminine Dress

Welcome to A Weekend In Feminine Dress when I post pictures of a modest, feminine outfit in order to encourage women to consider the important apostolate of dress!  If you would like to send in photos of your outfit to publish here, please contact me at: thecatholiclady@gmail.com.  Thank you!

I have recovered from my exhaustion of last week, thanks to the prayers and advice of many friends and help of my doctor.  I just started taking Armour Thyroid and hoping that helps!  I really appreciate all of the thoughtful messages I received.

I did not know what I would wear to my cousin's wedding this Saturday so I finally just decided to make a dress!  I went to JoAnn's and found this blue floral fabric on sale which I purchased three yards of for only $6 total!  I made the dress Friday and wore it with a black fascinator hat I purchased earlier this year for my brother-in-law's wedding (not seen in the picture).  The shoes were given to me by my little sister who found them at a thrift store in Virginia.

Below is the outfit I wore Sunday.  We visited my family to celebrate my Mom's birthday and Thomas, Beatrice and Rebecca had such a great time at their house.  They have a slide and swings and a garden that the children just love!  (I never got around to taking photos there so this photo was taken when we got home.)

I'm Wearing:
Skirt- Handmade
Top- Ann Taylor
Jewelry- Kohl's
Thanks for visiting!  What did you wear this weekend?

A Weekend In Feminine Dress: Feeling Sick

Welcome to A Weekend In Feminine Dress on The Catholic Lady Blog when I post pictures of myself or another lady wearing a modest, feminine outfit (including where it was purchased) in order to encourage other women in this apostolate.  If you want to send me your pictures to publish here, please contact me at: thecatholiclady@gmail.com.  I really appreciate the photos I have received lately from generous ladies!
 I love the month of September!  The weather is just so beautiful and it is when the Autumn festivals begin!  I also LOVE Fall fashion and plan to do some posts about that!  Layering, boots, burgundy and scarves can be SO beautiful in the crisp air!
I had a very difficult weekend.  I experienced a thyroid/adrenal crash like I do sometimes and could barely get out of bed Saturday and Sunday.  Fortunately, we did make it to Mass Sunday evening and I started to feel a little better yesterday. :)  I do look tired in this picture, but it was taken on an evening last week before I started to feel so awful.  I am trying to be patient as I experiment with different supplements and medications for my thyroid.  The doctor I have been working with has me taking Thytrophin PMG and Iodine Plus (with selenium and other thyroid nutrients) in addition to some adrenal supplements, but I have recently been considering going on Armor Thyroid because I feel like I need something stronger.  I am also exploring the idea that my problems could be autoimmune triggered and may need to address that issue.  I know thyroid and adrenal issues are common among pregnant and nursing women, so if anyone has suggestions, please let me know!
I recently found this black eyelet dress at Goodwill and I really like how it looks with the cardigan.  I added a strip of black fabric around the top and small sleeves to make it more modest.  I wore this outfit when we went miniature golfing last week.  It was fun and I won by a few strokes less than my husband which made it even better (although I think he was running after our children so it may have been on an advantage)!
