Hey friends, how are you doing today? Well… spring has exited the chat in my neck of the woods. Thankfully even amid the snow, the sun continues to shine, but still 28° is a bit chilly for this time of the year, after all spring is just about two weeks away. But still, we give thanks to the God of the Universe for prolonged daylight and sunshine, and we remain ever hopeful for warmer days. How is the weather in your neck of the woods?
A few months ago, I began a study on the women of the Bible. The woman I had a bit of difficulty in the assessment of character is Sarah (Abraham’s wife). In I Peter 3:6, we are encouraged to model after Sarah in her submission to her husband. Certainly, we see this when he tells her, not once but twice to proclaim their sibling relationship rather than their spousal, she agrees without argument. He led and she was a willing follower. I must admit I do admire Sarah.
Unlike Eve, she allowed her husband to lead her, in so doing he received the credit as well as the disaproval for their actions. The one time on record, she decided to lead, two people groups are still paying the price today. I like Sarah, I desire to be like her. I am not a natural follower, in fact I admit, I prefer to lead, I like to determine the outcome of my circumstances. Of course, that’s never possible is it? We cannot even control ourselves, far less our environment. As wives, we’ve been called to submit to our (own) husbands, which is exactly what Sarah exemplified. She honored the Lord when she submitted to her husband’s authority. Yes… yes… Sarah typified wisdom and integrity and dignity.
For the month of February, I enjoyed giving my face a break from make-up. These skin care items made it to the top of my list simply because they provided the moisture, the cold drew away from my face. The combination of these two products helped to reduce the black spots and hyper-pigments which troubled my skin throughout that month. This is my third Ordinary Glycolic 7% Toning Solution, and Elizabeth Arden Toner, that I always buy from TJ Maxx, are a perfect combination. Together, they cost less than $20
When I did go out of the house, this MILK Kush Waterproof (not really) mascara which gave my eyes all the drama and attention they needed. And along with it, this IT Cosmetics lip product which again provided the moisture and enhanced the color of my lips were all I needed.
My sweetheart bought me this watch for Christmas, and I take every opportunity to wear it. I absolutely love it. Along with the watch, these bracelets, (wait for the sales) from Swarovski are cute and look fabulous.
I wore these shoes a few weeks ago, when warm weather mockingly made us think spring had sprung, but its okay, I thought I would share them with you anyway because they are most certainly my absolute favorite; well one of them anyway. Aren’t they absolutely fabulous? They are a pair of Kurt Geiger shoes which I bought from Ebay.
Temi of Christian Mommas and I have been ‘friends’ for a minute and we are certainly sisters in Christ. We have so much in common, I hardly know where to start. Temi has a heart for mothers, especially young mothers. She encourages them to look to the Savior and reminds them that there are others just like them out there. She share activities and makes suggestions on how to entertain the littles and she does all this as a young mother herself, while she homeschools and runs her Etsy shop. Chile.. I don’t know where she gets the energy, but if you are not yet following her, I encourage you to do so.
Lloyd is a photographer, and he shares the most fabulous photographs on his excursions. What I enjoy the most about each post is his narrative about the photos. It is always interesting and informative, too many times, I found myself saying, “I did not know that”. His blog is called Lloyd’s Lens Photography LLC. Check him out, you will not regret it
What were a few of your favorites throughout the month of February? What are your goals for March?
