These are a few of my favorite things: Fall Edition

Y’all,  I love Fall and everything about it!!! There’s just something about Fall that makes me want to curl up with a cozy blanket, a cup of good coffee, and a great book.

Those days are rare but when one rolls around, bygollywally I cherish the living daylights out of it!!! I love getting to…

Remembering the Sabbath Day

Remembering the Sabbath Day

The gifts of God are many but one of the most precious ones is the command to rest. Exodus 20:8 tells us to remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.  Exodus 34:21 tells us that we are to work for 6 days and then rest on the 7th. Can I get an Amen?!?!?!? I recently became self-employed and let me just tell ya, the work never ends. I could literally work all day long. I am now an office…

When it comes to dieting you’ve got one person saying to cut…

Non-toxic sunscreen

Non-toxic sunscreen

As promised (but a little bit late ), the results of my homemade, non-toxic sunscreen. My conclusion is that it works!! I am burned in spots but overall, the exposed areas that I applied the sunscreen to are not burned. I made the mistake of not reapplying. Even with store bought sunscreens, you have to reapply and I didn’t. I was outside for long stretches of time from 2:30ish until dark. The reason for this experiment was to find out…

All the single ladies…

    I have been thinking about the need to post this for such a long time. There have been so many times when the Lord has pointed me to this scripture and I have seen the evidence of disobeying this command in my life first hand and makes me want to beg and plead with all you single gals to PLEASE. GUARD. YOUR. HEART!!!!     I would like to preface this by saying that the intended audience for…

Do you take the Lord’s name in vain?

Do you take the Lord’s name in vain?

Y’all I have to be transparent here and admit that I am very guilty of this and the Lord has really been convicting me and revealing to me all the ways I take His name in vain. First of all, I’m sure I’m not the only one who grew up thinking this simply meant not to use the Lord’s name with the word da%$. Dern was OK. Dang was OK but da%$? Don’t you dare!!! I have come to realize…
