PRAISES VS PETITIONS

The LORD often gets blamed when something goes wrong, but He seldom gets credit for all the things that go right.  Every day people get up, get dressed, drive to work or school or the store, and return home safely.  No one knows how many times the LORD has protected us from harm.  But when there is a tragedy, we ask, “Where was God?”

When I consider all the wonderful things that My LORD does silently on my behalf each day, I realize that my list of praises is much longer than my list of petitions.(Isa. 25)

 

 

 

Weddings and Graduations

It’s that time of year!  Where to find the perfect prom dress or tux?  Where to get my weave done? Where to find those perfect shoes?  Should I wear french nails, coffin, lace and peals, nude/neutral?  What am I to do?  All of these questions and where are the answers?  Let a professional lead the way.

If you have a great fashion sense or think you do, please consult a professional coordinator to help with color scheme and design.  Not your cousin who took a class, once.  So that when you look back you can say, ‘That was the fashion then’ and not ‘Oh, no!  What was I thinking’?  ‘Why did I let . . . do my wedding, prom, etc.’

Spring Cleaning and Your Nails

How does one begin?  Some may want to take a whole day?  Some, those of us that work all day, take a room a day, maybe a Saturday or our one day off.  And, some may do it the Mary Kay way. . . The 5 a.m. Club.  Or it could be the 4 a.m. Club.  It would depend on what time your day starts.  It would mean that you have to get up one hour earlier to do your cleaning for that one club hour.  I can’t even now imagine those with CHILDREN.  How long will this take with you doing it the Spring Cleaning way?  It  will depend on whether or not you linger or reminisce when you find something you use to wear or your child use to play with or made for you from the second grade(they are now 30).  It’s been a while.

No matter your method of cleaning.  We have to be mindful of the care of our hands, nails and cuticles.  Cleaning supplies and just plain old neglect can wreck havoc on the skin of our hands during this time of year.  Our skin and nails have gone through the cold, dry season to now be dried out even further with cleaning chemicals and harsh soapy water.

The key to all this drying out is moisture, moisture, moisture, not grease or lotions filled with more chemicals and alcohol.  Try natural oils such as coconut, olive or jojoba added to your favorite lotion if you must.  ALWAYS wear gloves when cleaning with chemicals and cleaning detergents, you’ll be glad you did.
