Welcome and Blessings!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I have named this blog "Running to the Cross" because that is what I often find myself doing...running to be with my Lord Jesus! I often cover many aspects of life on my blog, as it is my journal. I used to write things down in all sorts of notebooks, but my writings would soon be lost. So I decided that it was time to start a blog and share my thoughts and ideas with others. Many topics you will find here are prayers, homemaking and organization, children and pregnancy, funny stories, and the challenges of parenting and motherhood. If you enjoy my blog and leave me a comment, you are likely to have me visit! I love meeting others and gleaning from the lives of others. May you be blessed! Your friend in Christ, Heather

What Does HELP MEET Mean to You?

What does HELP MEET mean to you? I encourage you to try your hand at making this your own. I would love to know if you step up to the challenge!


Edited: Thanks Linda, I changed it to be the proper term... ;O)

Did you know.... that actually the word 'helpmeet' does not exist? The sentence went something like 'be a help meet for him', meaning (in old english) a help fit (meet) for him.

Meet is just a synonym for 'fit'.... the word we (as wives) are supposed to be is just 'help'..

It's funny though, how the word has slumbered-in and is now such a known word, while in reality it wasn't even meant as one ;)

greetings from the netherlands!
