Day: March 17, 2016


Encouragement tonight if you need it

I never post at night.

I’ve had a hard, frustrating, and very physically painful day. You’ll read about it tomorrow.

But I thought, I’ll bet I’m not the only one. I’ll bet there are a number of you out there in “blogsville” that have had your own bad day.

It doesn’t matter what the cause, assuming of course, you weren’t the author of your pain. But in a way, I guess we all are to some degree.

Life can be incredibly hard. Even as Christians, we get discouraged, disappointed. We try to be loving, kind, and understanding, but here are days we feel like we’ve been drained of our last vestige of strength.

When I have days like that, I remember that God knows how I feel. His despair over his children is far greater than the angst I felt today. The pain and agony Jesus encountered in the Garden when he was at the end of his own rope, reminds me I can do this.

I know in my heart that God will give me strength for whatever comes my way.

But frankly, today it was hard.

If this has been a long, difficult day for you as well:

I wish you peace for the rest of your evening.


I wish you a good night’s sleep.


I wish you guardian angels to hover over you and keep you safe.

I wish you a bright morning with great coffee. 


But mostly I wish you a great day tomorrow. God bless.

two great make-up products you have to try

Remember yesterday I told you about these amazing Bavarian creme pastries?


The Bible study group loved them! They’re even letting me come back. 🙂

Anyway, I’ve been meaning to tell you about two great make-up products. As you must know from following this blog, I’m cheap about most things. I’m really cheap when it comes to my make-up.

BUT, I’m not cheap about my moisturizer, face creams, etc. I spend more (although still not the expensive department store brands) on those items. It seems to me the top-layer is never going to look good if my skin isn’t healthy and if my skin is healthy, the rest is just window dressing.

This first item I buy at the Dollar Tree. In fact, I’ve never spent much on eye shadow. I mean what does it do anyway?  I’m not into smoldering  or exotic looking eyes so any brand works. I’ve been using Dollar store brands for at least ten years. It goes on smooth and it lasts all day. I don’t use all the colors, only the greys, but I would spend more than that for a pallet of just grays anywhere else, so if I throw away the colors I don’t use, I figure I’m still ahead.


The second item, the mascara, I started using about three months ago. It’s from Dollar General. I think it was $4:00. This is one product I’m kind of fussy about. I really like the old stand-by that most of us have used for years, Cover Girl Great Lash.  It’s gone up in price significantly. So what I’ve been doing is using the cheaper brand first and then after that has dried, I coat my lashes again with the Great Lash mascara. You did know, didn’t you, that you are supposed to use two coats of mascara.

Anyway, try out some of these brands if you’re looking for a bargain. You might be pleasantly surprised.

God bless ad I hope you have good day.
