Divine Appointments

Today me and my hubby had one of those divine appointments. You know one of those God ordained chance meetings that change your life… yeah one of those and it all started with our van… we finally sold our van, mind you we had been trying to sale it for the last two years… and it never sold until today! That’s because God’s timing is perfect and he had a plan and a purpose. Today we sold our van to the most amazing Godly couple!! They are both musicians have been married for 24 years next month and are so full of love!! Their names you ask? Bob and Etta Britt!! He plays instruments and produces the music and she sings… you can check out her songs here.

We were definitely blessed to be in the presence of such great people. What started off as a business transaction ended with a return invite over coffee, cookies, fresh eggs and a CD! We stumbled upon a rare friendship that was God ordained and will be a joy to our lives for years and years to come!! All because we sold our van and remained flexible enough to not be in such a hurry to go on about our business!! I am so glad to have met them and am truly looking forward to what God has planned for us. Thank You Jesus for bringing us together and may we be a blessing to each other always, In Jesus’ Name Amen.

My Week Recap

So my week recap is finally on time because well I have time… albeit not much time but I have time… So this week was full of getting the last of the fascinators done for Hope Pregnancy Center’s purity ball! For those of you who have no idea what a fascinator is, it’s a headpiece that has feathers in it… think Kate Middleton… and the purity ball is a time where fathers and daughters can come together, get all dressed up and talk about what it means to live a pure lifestyle. it’s really an amazing night!! On another note, I tried a new way of wrapping my scarf for my natural hair and I loved it enough to take pictures and wear it to school. I had a great little date night with my hubby at the library Starbucks on campus, He even cooked dinner this week! Way to go hubby!! I also had a great encounters with Jesus this week and am so excited to see what He’s up to!! I hope you had a great week!

My Two Week Recap

The last two weeks have been really hectic and busy for me. Between school, home, and getting the take home gifts done for the purity ball I have been swamped… I cannot wait until Thursday gets here so that I can finally start going to sleep at a normal hour again… There were a few great things going on though, like our awesome seats at the WinterJam Concert tour in Nashville, our four year wedding anniversary, and my official membership into my local CrossFit box!! Through it all Jesus has shown up, and has never left my side. It has been such an amazing two week with my Jesus despite how hectic it has been, and for that I am grateful! How have you spent the last few weeks?

Fresh Infusions Anyone?

20130215-213910.jpg

So about mid-month last month I received another great Influenster vox box… this time it was for Palmolive’s new line of dish soap… FRESH INFUSIONS!! I received three full size 16oz bottles one to give a way and two to keep as well as 6 coupons to give to friends…There are three new scents: Lime Basil, Lemon Thyme and Ginger White Tea. I let my husband pick the one he liked best which was Lime Basil and I gave the Ginger White Tea to my friend, I gave my friend a coupon to give to someone as well, and gave the rest of the coupons to people. I think I had more fun giving things away! It was so much fun that I am thinking about having a drawing to give the Lemon Thyme bottle that I still have away but we’ll see…

So I didn’t want to do a review without using the product and I have been using it for over a month now and I like it. There’s only a fourth of the bottle gone which is great when you’re on a budget, at this rate I won’t need dish soap again for another six months!! I noticed that a little goes a long way, and the scent somehow gets stronger as you are washing, which is interesting. It is phosphate free if anyone is into that kind of thing but you can’t mix it with bleach… it works on getting my dishes really clean, my glasses shine! And I am overjoyed at how well it works on grease or caked on grim, add a few drops of dish soap some warm water let it sit for a few minutes and it wipes away really easily!! I would more than likely purchase this dish soap once my free bottles run out of course and at just under $3 at Wal-Mart it doesn’t seem like a bad purchase. It works and you get a ton of bang for you buck!!

I did ALL of those dishes using Palmolive’s Fresh Infusions Lime Basil dish soap, Can you believe it? Have you tried any of the Fresh Infusions? What’s your favorite scent?

Disclaimer: I was not paid to review this product. This is my own opinion and I received these items free of charge in my Influenster Box.

Happy Anniversary!!

"Working for Christ"

“… be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” (Ephesians 6:10-11, NIV)

the armor of god

When we go out into the workplace each day, we’re faced with all kinds of things that attempt to bring us down and cause us to fail. We need protection from the assault that is constantly attacking us.

You know what I’m talking about; it’s those nagging thoughts that tell you you’re not good enough or that your competitors are more skilled than you are. There are thoughts of self-doubt, insecurity, and failure; not all the time, but enough of the time that it weighs you down. You know you must either get away from your job and find something less challenging or put on the “armor of God” and take up the “shield of faith”…

Praise Report

I don’t have much time but I wanted to come and declare how good my God is and just share with you how He has been moving in my life. As you all know by my previous mentions I am in a school again for the first time as a full-time student and I have been struggling to maintain the balance between life responsibilities and school work.

So anyway enough about me and my struggles… My day started off with some great Jesus time. He really spoke to me about his love and his provision. How He’s always near us always with us through everything. He was really speaking to me about trusting Him. So I go off to my class very mellow and relaxed and found out that we have two class assignment having to deal with blogs!! Now I know this doesn’t seem like such a big deal but my Abba Father knows how much I enjoy blogs and blogging! And I was so overjoyed I could hardly contain it!! He cares about even the smallest of details and that’s a great feeling…

Then I went to another class where we had a pop quiz that of course I didn’t study for. But I had just did the reading the night before. So I prayed and asked Jesus to help me with the answers and to help me recall the info that I had read and I made my first 100!! Now let me tell you, in this particular class I have always missed one question and I studied so for me to get all of the questions right was a mini- miracle not to mention the teacher always calls out your name if you get all correct answers kind of like a hall of fame so I was super stoked!! So there you have it, two small examples that made a huge impact on my life all because I spent time with and trusted Jesus!! He continues to show up and I am so glad He does!
