I'm Seeing Green

Enjoy your weekend!

Taking Steps
Hello Lovelies,
Since I'm taking steps to shake things up a bit, I thought I'd take those steps in style.
My dream closet would include all of these.
Which shoe would you most like to wear today?

Wednesday Words of Wisdom

Lately I've felt like a few parts of my life have run off the track and landed in a ditch. Maybe it's this time of transition, maybe its just menopause. Whatever the reason, I'm ready to crawl out of this ditch, dust off the dirt and begin shaking things up.
I'd love to hear your story about making changes and the results you experienced.
Here are few pretties to inspire you today.

Tuesday's Tune-up

Hi lovelies,
I have to admit, I've spent most of my life trying to catch up instead of keep up.
What about you?

Monday's Message
Happy Monday lovelies,
I'd love to begin a conversation about GOSSIP.

Gossip is one of those sins that often evade our spiritual radar. We tell friends about others’ faults, offenses, even sins without realizing that by doing so, we're guilty of the sin of gossip. It's easy to dismiss our sin with the excuse of “being concerned”. We forget that engaging in gossip will eat away at our spiritual maturity and devastates our witness before others.

Gossip is not "networking", It's not "sharing concerns" or "bringing someone up to speed".

Gossip exactly what your mother taught you. It is talking about someone behind his or her back. While the subject of our gossip might not be outrageous, our gossip will result in anger, bitterness, hurt feelings, even damaged relationships.

Don’t take my word for it, examine Romans 1:29-30, “They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents;” (NIV)

Look at that, gossip is just as heinous as being a God hater.

Gossip creates a false sense of piety. Behind the “honorable” mask of concern lies the ugly face of selfishness, insecurity and spiritual immaturity.

The next time you’re tempted to engage in gossip:

1. Recognize the truth that gossip is a sin.

2. Exercise the power of words to fortify and edify others.

3. Acknowledge the damaging effect gossip will have on others.

Friends, I've engaged in more gossip than I care to admit and I have experienced every negative outcome this sin brings. I hope you will join the conversation today and share your story.

Ephesians 3:20, “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.

Happy Friday my lovelies,
It's been gray and rainy in my neighborhood this week and I'm ready to see a little sunshine outside my window. Since I can't control Mother Nature, I thought I'd find a little sunshine to welcome the official beginning to Fall.

Don't you just love those lilies on that gorgeous table drawing you to the sunshine?

This mirrored dresser was my inspiration to add mirrored night stands to our Master Bedroom.

I have the same Carrera marble in my tiny bathroom.

Look at those walls! I can only imagine how long it took to apply those mirrored pieces.

Now this is the way to enjoy gray.
Happy Weekend!

What's Your Excuse?
Hello my lovelies,

Today I'd like to talk about excuses. Over my lifetime, I've made more than my share of excuses for sure. As I begin to study the newest book by Lisa Whittle, I'm compelled to examine every area of my spiritual life.

What about you friends, are you cycling around and down the drain of excuses?

Let me encourage you today with this list.

Noah was a drunk

Abraham was too old

Isaac was a Daydreamer

Jacob was a liar

Leah was deemed unattractive

Joseph was abused

Moses had a stuttering problem

Gideon was afraid

Rehab was a prostitute

Jeremiah and Timothy were too young

Jonah ran from God

Peter denied Christ

The disciples fell asleep while praying

The Samaritan woman was divorced

Lazarus was dead

Are you willing to examine your reasons for making excuses?

While you're pondering that, here are a few lovely images.

And... one last sparkly lovely

Are you standing on the edge of a decision?
Is the Lord asking you to step out into something new?
What can you share about your leap of faith?

Tuesday's Tune-up

What do you think about this quote?

Quiet Time

Waking up this morning to crisp and cool weather has captured my fancy.
I don't know about you, but I'm more than ready to kiss the hot and humid weather
Adios, Arrivederci, Shalom, good-bye.
Bring on the cool, crisp beauty of fall.

Happy Weekend Wishes to all my lovely friends!
