3 Reasons I don’t go to the Nail Salon to Get My Nails Done

It was Mother’s day 2 years ago when I took my own dear mother to get a mani/pedi. I had a nursing baby I had to get back to quickly and getting away from the house was a challenge. My mom and I had an excellent time. We chatted and sat there as women scrubbed and polished our feet and hands. I paid the bill and tipped our manicurists. Almost $200 later, I walked out of the salon justifying the cost with ideas of quality time and pretty feet. After all… This was a treat. This was a gift! They…

Keep on Keepin’ On!! | Sunday Simple Homemaker Link Up | Happy Sunday!

Here is a tiny bit of encouragement for you ladies this up coming week! This is not our home, dear friends!!   Keep on keepin’ on!! I remember a time, I just started weeping in the shower with my husband. As he stood there, at a loss, I confessed I was just so tired of waiting for my rewards in heaven. In this life we can feel like we don’t get anything for doing the right thing.  Over and over we might walk in obedience only to have those we love continue to sin against us. Even just the everyday…

God’s Grace |Sunday’s Simple Homemaker |Link Up

Don’t forget to check out the posts this week from the amazing co-hosts over at Prarie Gal Cooking and My Life Abundant!! The verse Ashleigh chose for us to look at this week is Hosea 2:15 Hosea is a book of the Bible that fills me with awe and wonder.  It’s a shocking and  almost terrifying story of God’s grace and his mercy. As those of us who see themselves the harlot, unfaithful to God even though He has given us, literally, everything we have, we see hope and renewal. As a woman who has walked, completely in love with…

7 Tips to Curb Nausea During Pregnancy

I open my eyes and look over at the blurry clock…it’s 2:30am and I’m about to lose my dinner. As I rush to the toilet, I think, “There has to be something to help this!!!” When I finally stumble out of bed again sometime after the sun comes up, I still feel terrible.  I know there is nothing left in my belly. Nothing sounds good to eat. I feel like I’m going to be sick, but as a woman who has been pregnant most of her  married life, I know it’s a feeling I’m just going to have to deal…

Love is Kind

Love is kind… I hear it ring in my mind, but it hasn’t really ever penetrated my heart. But I feel the Lord lately, whispering those words more and more often. Love is kind… Love is kind… When my children are throwing a fit… Love is kind… When I’m angry and feel justified because I’ve been wronged… Love is kind… When sarcastic humor wells up in my throat in response to a quip… Love is kind… When in my frustration, I go into my room and I close my door.  I drop to my knees in tears, knowing only God…
