Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Please pray for those injured and killed in yesterday’s building collapse at The Salvation Army in Philadelphia!

Today is another day that the Lord hath made and I will rejoice in it!  I’m feeling vibrant and thrifty in my $20.00 outfit, yes, this entire outfit cost me 20 bones!

Hello Friends, I hope you are having a Thankful Tuesday.

First and foremost I would like to offer up prayers and condolences to those affected by yesterday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon.  Last night at the dinner table I once again emphasized the importance of being thankful, staying positive and living each day as if it were your last because tomorrow is not promised to any of us.  The senseless waste of time on negativity and hatred is time that any of us can ill afford – Stay Blessed my Bloggy friends!

Not just today but every day, we have so much to be thankful for starting with the glorious gifts from Mother Nature.  As much as I dread getting out of bed in the morning, once I’m up and out I feel truly thankful and blessed, how can I not be?

HAVE A THANKFUL TUESDAY – SMOOCHES!

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday, it’s another dark, damp and dreary day but my prayers were answered so for that I am thankful!

Driving into work this morning I was thinking about a financial situation and became a little depressed. When I got to my desk instead of reading today’s passage from “Our Daily Bread“, I read the scriptures on page 64, of “Gods Promises for every day“, What to do when you feel Worried“.  In less than 5 minutes my phone rang with an answer to my prayers,

Tuesday’s Testimony – God is Good!

Give all your worries to him, because he cares about you – 1 Peter 5:7

Jesus said, “Don’t let your hearts be troubled.  Trust in God, and Trust in me.”  John 14:1

Today’s outfit is a Tribal Throwback, hubby had these matching vests made during our first year of marriage in 1991, you know that newlywed stage when it was cute to dress alike!   #2 son wanted his father’s vest, but he said, “no, wait until I retire and then you can have all my clothes”, so I gave him mine.  

This morning I shopped my son’s closet for my vest.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

I hope your day is going well and that plans for the weekend are in full gear – enjoy!  My mother-in-law is doing well and I thank you for all your prayers.  Tonight the boys and I will be visiting taking a small table-top Christmas Tree to brighten up the room and raise her spirits.  All week I have been psyching myself up to start decorating and have decided that tomorrow is the day, oh Lord.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t like decorating for the holidays, it just getting motivated to start because I HAVE TOO DAMN MUCH.  If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen pics of just a few bins of Christmas decorations that are in my basement’s crawlspace.  When my sons were younger, they were all gung-ho and couldn’t wait to help – now it’s like pulling teeth and hubby is a Muslim so he only helps to put the boxes away, the majority of the work falls on me.  The older I get the more I understand why people paid others to decorate their homes, remember this episode from “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air”?

It’s not as cold as I expected but there’s a cold rain falling so I bundled up with a scarf for casual Friday.

Hello friends and Happy Monday…Tuesday sorry – yesterday’s post was dedicated to my mother-in-law so I didn’t feature an outfit of the day.  Before I begin I want to thank everyone for their comments as well as prayers because I do believe in the power of it!  Yesterday she had a good day and although her body is weak and frail her mind is sharp and active – so keep on praying.

Monday’s outfit was a combo of black and white but I need to use splashes of color, I’ll be looking for some colorful scarves at Goodwill or maybe Plato’s Closet .  I have never gone to a Plato’s Closet although there is one in Exton just a few miles from my job, and there is also one about a mile from The Hospice on Limestone Road, I’ll check one of them.

Again,  thank you so much for praying – have a wonderful evening – Smooches!
