Makeup Trends Fall 2015

Makeup Trends

This time of year I get antsy about wanting to change my makeup routine. I like to get a makeover and see some of the new colors for fall. Now to be honest, I just tweak a few products. I'm at the age where I don't like crazy, trendy makeup. Although truthfully, I have never been one to wear crazy, trendy makeup. This summer I have been … [Read more...]

What Happens When God Says No

What-if-we-trusted

I don't know about you, but I love when the answer to our prayers are "YES".  Yes, that broken relationship will be mended. Yes, you are going to get that new job promotion.  Yes, your child will be healed. Yes, you can adopt a child. Yes, your loved one will live. Yes, your spouse will move back home. Wouldn't it be nice if yes … [Read more...]

Happy Friday! I know you all are NOT going to believe me when I tell you this, but it is chilly outside this morning. It's in the 50's and our highs for today are going to be in the 70's. That's below normal for August in Kentucky. As you can imagine, it has me thinking fall! When it comes to chilly mornings and warm days, it's nice to have … [Read more...]

Sunday Encouragement-How Should We Live?

Let your light shine

Do you ever wonder what God wants us to be doing? What is His plan for you, what is His plan for me? We could ponder on that question all day but I think scripture gives us some answers. Jesus clearly commands that the goal of our lives should be to behave so that God gets the glory. We should live so that others will see our life and give … [Read more...]

Sunday Encouragement-Trust Me

Have I not told you- Be strong and have

I shared with you a few days ago that I felt a whisper from God saying, "Trust me." Trust me in this crazy, messed up world. Trust me when you don't understand why things happen like children who are diagnosed with cancer, or children who are abused, sex trafficking, shootings and so much more. I think of what my Mom told me before she died, … [Read more...]

The back of this is a silky, off white and … [Read more...]

Tips For A Better Night’s Sleep

The-snooze-routine

If there is one thing that drives me crazy (okay there are lots of things that drive me crazy but we haven't got time for that), it's not being able to sleep. I was the best sleeper, until I turned 40. Then all of a sudden 3:30 am became my new best friend! Sorry, but that best friend had to go. It would happen over and over. I would go to … [Read more...]
