Armpits!

Armpits!

Ladies, thanks to today’s advertising media we can now have perfect armpits. I kid you not! Frankly, I do not remember the product that will deliver this beauty but I do recall the model. Her skin was flawless; even skin tone, smooth and velvety texture and nary a hint of stubble! Her armpits!

Can you believe it?! Is it any wonder we are obsessed with how we look?

Perfect hair
Perfect face
Perfect body
Perfect armpits!

Yes! Ten years ago I could comfortably wear a size 2 jeans; today, some days, I can barely zip a size; well, you don’t need to know that!  🙂 What happened?

LIFE!

Something the advertising media misses conveying by a country mile! Real life. Real people with real lives – no airbrushing available!

It’s all about you don’t have enough. Not enough car. Not enough house. Not the right shampoo. Not the right clothes. Not the right mascara and your lips aren’t red enough or shiny enough either! Your cell phone cover is plain. Here, eat this hamburger and you’ll be sexy. Here, spend 15 minutes on our machine and you can work off that hamburger effortlessly. And it goes on and on endlessly – sitting on your comfortable, well-loved couch, you are told you need a new one; on your way to a party in your flattering best on a great hair day in your paid for vehicle, you are told your clothes are inferior, your hair is flat and fly-away and your car is nothing less than an embarrassment!

And I am sick of feeding on their steady diet of dis-contentment!

When this is true of me, the advertisers can digitally correct their models and paint their products any way they choose and I still won’t come up short! 🙂

Early Rising

Well, y’all getting somewhere on time is easy! 🙂 when your hubby sets the alarm and inadvertently also resets the clock! But you know what is a pleasant surprise? I’m up WAY earlier than my norm, I feel just as good, perhaps even better! hum???

One more day folks to accomplish all the 2013 stuff! 2014 is moving up fast!!

I have one more book to finish reading to reach my goal of 12 books read in 2013 (In addition to Scripture and Sunday School prep and blogging and etc.) Not bad I think; but my goal for 2014 is 24. Perhaps ambitious but hey I might make it!

Be Brave!

That’s a good Word for us to end 2013 and begin 2014.

Be Brave!

Be Brave because HE has conquered sin and death for us!

ABBA, thank You. Thank You ADONAI YESHUA that we can be brave because You live! Thank You, HOLY SPIRIT for infusing us with strength, courage, hope, faith and love.

Blessings my Friends,

Happy Day!

Well, the years have clicked away and I have arrived at that milepost in time! I’m officially a senior citizen! But I don’t feel like one! I am reminded of Joshua. I like what he said and while I can’t truthfully say it, I’d like to keep working on it. 🙂

My hubby is giving me a GREAT gift for my birthday – his time! He is taking the day off to spend with me and I am thrilled to squealing out loud when he told me. I am blessed beyond! And grateful!

One thing I greatly miss though: my Momma and I used to race to see who could call the other one first. If I was first I would congratulate her for being my Momma and she would wish me a happy happy birthday. Someday we’ll have a heavenly party!

Friends, even if it is not your birthday, make this day count!

James 4:13-15 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such-and-such a city, stay there a year trading and make a profit”! 14 You don’t even know if you will be alive tomorrow! For all you are is a mist that appears for a little while and then disappears. 15 Instead, you ought to say, “If Adonai wants it to happen, we will live” to do this or that.

Sweet Assurance

Isaiah 56 is particularly sweet to me this morning. I was once a foreigner but in His amazing grace ADONAI has invited me in and made covenant with me; even as He has with perhaps YOU. Enjoy, be strengthened today, I pray. 

6 “And the foreigners who join themselves to Adonai

to serve him, to love the name of Adonai,

and to be his workers,

all who keep Shabbat and do not profane it,

and hold fast to my covenant,

7 I will bring them to my holy mountain

and make them joyful in my house of prayer;

their burnt offerings and sacrifices

will be accepted on my altar;

for my house will be called

a house of prayer for all peoples.”
