Wendy's Wednesday

Good Morning! Have you ever heard that saying, "Today is the first day to the rest of your life" How cool to think, that every day we get a new shot at life. And today is a gift we get from God to make it whatever we like. It's so easy to get into ruts and certain ways of thinking but I encourage you to try and think out of the box today, and do some things you've never done before, but always wanted to. I think I'm gonna call the dentist and find out how much it costs to have my teeth zoomed (whitened). I have been drinking more coffee lately and the effects on my teeth are definitely not desirable. How about giving God at least 15 minutes in prayer. Believe me, the time will fly faster than you could imagine. He really cares about you and wants you to have a good day! He is for us, not against us! It is a beautiful sunny day here in GA, what about where you live? What could you do outdoors today? It is so good to take walks, ride bikes, etc... to get out and just relax. This past weekend I went for about a 5 mile bike ride with my family and afterwards I realized how much fun it really was! When we clear our heads of all the normal things that fill it, we finally have a chance to think's good to do that! I try and do it about once a month or so! So, what's it gonna be? Are you gonna have a Wild and Wacky, Wonderful Wednesday? Or a Wasted Wednesday?

So here are some of my faves this week:

This is a great dress for shopping or just doing whatever...

and I love this cute little black purse

or how about this one called "housewife handbag" (ha,ha)

on a note of giving(that always makes you feel better) how about checking this site out?

or you could help my daughters out by supporting their new "business adventure"

They are designing jewelry and accessories for other girls....they'll even do custom orders! Be sure to check it out!
Here's the Verse of the Day: (Totally goes along with my blog- how awesome is that?!)
And my last favorite of the day of course has to be lip balm-HA!!!

Wendy's Wednesday!

I am so excited to be started Wendy's Wednesday today.....Every Wednesday from now on will be filled with all my favorite things. Please share your comments with me as well! I appreciate your feedback. The purpose of my blog is to reach out to all you women/girls out there who have a heart for Jesus Christ and want to glorify Him in everything you do....Just because you're a christian does not mean you have to wear turtlenecks every day, wear your hair in a bun, or speak in King James Version. It means being your own special, unique person that God created you to be with your own style and serving Jesus while doing it! His standards are high, so ours should be too! We are to be "set apart" but what that means is having a relationship with Jesus-following his word and the CONVICTION of the Holy Spirit....If He is speaking something to you; you'll know it! (& funny thing is- he might not be speaking it to me) I believe in absolute truth...what I'm saying here though is- we have to be close enough to Him to know what He wants us to do in every situation. We can't rely on what others tell us, can we? We have to read His word and trust in what it says, and obey it- even if we feel like it or not!

Phew, I feel much better now that I got all that off my chest! HA,HA!!! Well, here they are...I hope you enjoy your Wednesday!!!!! This is a great devotional for the day or maybe you'd like this one I love making jewelry with my daughters and this site is a great tool Another great craft idea Here is a romantic movie top 20 list with clips Here are some "LOVE" quotes; And what about your flair for fashion? What about
love these earrings
See you later & Be Loved!!!

I had to say GREAT b/c it's better than GOOD. There actually are no words to describe what our Savior has done for us! It is so wonderful to be a christian and to know the Power of Jesus Christ! Power to save, heal, deliver & set free. I am so thankful for him and thankful to God for giving us Jesus! As women, we need to rely heavily on him to take care of us and meet our needs! He is waiting for us to come to him and get filled up! We go to so many other "places" when he is just a prayer away...I have been feeling like I am in a wilderness's the strangest thing. I know, it's at these times He wants me to come close to him and draw water from his well and drink from his cup...I am sooo thirsty and He does have what I need. He fills me up and gives me joy and takes me where I need to go next! I am led by His hand and I trust where He is leading me. I want my life & all that that encompasses to be directed by My Father, Savior, Best Friend, and Lover of my soul. He is worth talking about, loving on, studying, living for, etc....Whenever things happen that frustrate me like my children not obeying me right away, or my husband not giving me what I need or have asked for, or not "having it all" like I think I deserve, then I have to go to my Savior and share these things...No one can change someone else- I've learned that over the years by thinking I could change someone or "help" them. Only the HOLY SPIRIT can change a heart & I have to ask him on a continual basis to change mine! But He is able to do so! I'm so glad we don't have to stay the same and that miracles can happen. Even if it seems small like allowing Him to come in and make a change in our lives is actually a HUGE miracle! Thank you Jesus for dying and giving me a chance to have Eternal Life! I know in a small way what freedom is, but I'm glad that at least I'll have the chance to know TOTAL FREEDOM & PURE JOY when I get to heaven and get to see the love in your eyes....Thank you for taking care of everything that concerns me! You have been faithful to me above all else and I praise your name!!! You are the Way, the Truth, and Life and No one comes to the Father except through You! Have a GREAT, GOOD FRIDAY! Have a Happy Easter-decorating eggs, baking cookies, hanging out with family and friends, enjoying nice Spring weather and celebrating JESUS!

How far can you swim?

When I saw this quote, I had to add it to my blog! It's SO true! How many people do you know that take the hard route? It's not very common and also people look at ya kinda funny when you seem to be "chasing" something....There's just something so "not" cool about that! I want to be that kind of person-that is so determined that I go for what God wants me to go for 1st of all, and also the goals I set for myself! It's so much easier when we get encouragement from others, but that's not always gonna happen. You have to know what's "in the boat"! And it needs to be so worth it-otherwise what's the point!? What is worth it? Money, well that doesn't seem to fulfill long enough-especially if you're alone. Shallow relationships-nope-almost as bad as being alone!!! An AWESOME, totally in-shape body-nope-constant worry that you're gonna lose it one day! Well, I think ya get the point....If you are going to go through all the trouble of swimming out to the boat-It would pretty much need to be a guarantee or do you just need the exercise? I have found a TREASURE & His name is Jesus Christ. He is a guarantee and I'm never alone! I can talk to Him about anything, anytime and when I climbed on board, I was able to stay. I didn't have to get off or I wasn't thrown off....He's been steady!!! He's REAL and how you feel about that doesn't change that FACT! Ships Ahoy!

Ghosts of the Past!

still working on my blog! Wish I had more time to put into it than I do! Today I'm taking my girls to a Turner Field "field" trip- ha! We are excited...It would be even better if we could meet some of the players, but I doubt that's gonna happen. Last night, I had a great conversation with my cousin, Donna as usual. We were talking about generational curses. She said she had recently been prayed/prophecied over. I know from experience usually when I've been prophecied over, it's something that is confirmed. They didn't tell her things she never knew, but it just made her more AWARE of how the enemy has tried to deceive in our particular family. It's important to stay in a place of being Aware. It's not always easy to do either because we'd rather close our eyes many times than to face things, isn't that true? But how about the flip side...Wouldn't it be even Better if we were more AWARE of what God was doing in our lives and how he was working then constantly seeing the devil around every corner. I would encourage you today to focus on Jesus Christ!!! We have All authority in Jesus Name- it's not a fight between good and evil- like they are equal!? Jesus Christ has all the power which overrides the bad. We OVERCOME evil with good-the Bible says. Be an Overcomer today- You Can Do It!
