Rock Star Toes!!! Jen and I decided we were paying WAY to much for Rock Star Toes...$45.00 with out tip...WHAT!...and of course Brittani decided she needed Rock Star Toes too...so...my bill doubled breaking the bank! For those of you who don't know what Rock Star Toes are...be warned they are addicting...it is actually acrylic powder mixed with glitter...color of your choice customized to your satisfaction...and every toe is a sparkling wonder dancing across your foot...they are great!!! So like I said Jen and I got all the stuff to do our own...after all I am a licensed professional...we thought we could save money and help our friends save money too...but of course we needed to see how they would look before subjecting our other friends to the madness...why did we have to start them at 9:30 pm and not get done until 1:30...well good question...pure vanity and pride I guess...we are both going out of town...and you should have gotten a look at are sad little Rock Star Toe daggers we had going on...no no no that just wouldn't do...so here I am Zombie Woman with some Rock'n Toes!!! Who needs sleep? By the way these pictures just don't do them justice!!!
They are still little sticks but I can blend them in a lot easier and I'll just keep them short until my curls grow back in...by the way I can still clip them back as well...there ya have it...
Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.
Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.
And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.
I know this happens to you too...How do we keep our selves from falling into the trap of gossip? Is it ok to VOICE (vent) frustrations you have with others to others? If so how far is too far?
I would love to hear what you have to say on this one...
Need him. And believe in him.
That is what a man needs to hear from his woman more than anything else. I need you. I need your strength. I believe in you. You have what it takes.
Colton in front of his school...(not in the front yard...Diana)Colton Walking to his classroom...last door on the right...Colton and his teacher...man she looks young...or I guess I'm getting old...This one is my favorite...this is the little girl Colton LIKES...he was so happy she was in his class but of course didn't want to show it...anywho as you can see he was not happy that I asked if I could take a picture of them together...What a classic!!!This is me walking away leaving a little piece of my heart behind...we want them to learn independence...but...it hurts a little...I love you ColtonAnd of course I had to decorate his room too...my little slugger!!!
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
This is one of the songs that we sang...I've posted it before...and I'm doing it again...because this song is sooo powerful and I love it...YOU LOVE US GOD!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in".
The picture in my head with this scripture and after reading this chapter is this...we have many doors in our heart...really big doors, tiny doors, hidden doors, doors that we deny exist...and God is standing at every single one of them knocking waiting for us to let him in and heal that part of our brokenness...all we need to do is let him in and ask him to begin the work he longs to do for us...he desires to make us whole...lets let Him. And yes He does want the invitation...
I am answering the door to your patient, gentle knocking...come in and heal my heart...
Pg. Eph. 6:12
For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms.
What if we apply this scripture to our wounds? Even to other peoples wounds who are apart of our lives...How does it change the picture of our View concerning our selves as well as others...How would we approach conversations about these wounds or how would it change our behavior towards one another?
These are the questions I'm asking my self after this chapter...
http://www.moneysavingmom.com/money_saving_mom/ that I was told about last night and that I am completely loving!!! Thanks Beth!!!
I wanted to tell you about a cooking club that I am a member of. It saves me time and money because I am less likely to eat out and more likely to plan ahead and try and match my dish to coupons or sales. Also, it gives my family a chance to try foods and recipes that we might not otherwise try.
We have 8 busy moms who are members of our cooking club. Each month they have the option to participate or not. Each member makes a main dish for all the other participating families and freezes it (and usually keeps one for her family). We meet in someone’s garage to swap and go home with fully-stocked freezers of ready to thaw and reheat meals that are great for those super busy days.
We also did a side dish exchange this month, too. I made beans and received a dozen fresh ears of corn (a member’s family owns a local farm), cheesy potatoes, and twice baked potatoes. We have done soup groups, brunch groups (so we all have non-burnt toast on Mother’s Day!), sweet groups (for entertaining around the holidays) and appetizer groups (for New Years or Super Bowl time).
Anybody up for it???
