So in a different way, this book has gotten my head & heart in a tizzy. It cuts through the junk, gets to the meat of our walk with God. You can be going through the motions of the Christian walk, but if you aren't having those convos with God getting to the heart of it-the motions are just that, motions. He makes the point that we are called human beings, not human doings. Got want us to "just be" with Him. I put such value on what I can "get done" in a day, what I produce-it is hard to understand this, that God is so okay with just us being in His presence and ignoring that to-do list for a bit. Being more of a Mary than a Martha. Will I be learning/relearning this my whole life? And in the same thread, here is Matt Maher's-I Need You. There are days when I call on Him each hour-I'm thankful I can whisper HIs name & He is there.
So you've probably heard of Noonday by now. Beautiful items & a beautiful company. I avoid home shows like the plague, but I did go to this one. I loved hearing about the women who made this jewelry, purses, etc. And I was going crazy over all of the jewelry-great prices too. This company inspires me, maybe not to sell the jewelry myself, but I will buy it from YOU.
This is a Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa) turkey meatloaf recipe. Yum. I love meatloaf. Am I weird? I did add some brown sugar to the ketchup sauce, just how my mom did it growing up. And I substituted somewhat vital items (onion flakes instead of actual onion) and it still came out yummy. Above is not my pic, I can't get it together to take pics of what I cook. How am I supposed to know it is good until it turns out, then it is too late for the pictures. Anyway. I did the meatloaf, mashed potatoes & fried okra (the frozen, pre-breaded kind from WM). I felt like a proper wife that night. I typically don't cook like this. Kinda misleading for me to post about cooking stuff, but doing it anyway. Don't put me in some type of blogger's misrepresentin' jail.
Again, at the risk of pretending I know something I really don't...make-up (which gets applied in the car, at RED lights)...very excited about now getting my "i need to feel pretty" fix at Wal-Mark for under $5 with the e.l.f. line they are now carrying there! Above are some best-sellers. Woop-woop. I have no business going into Sephora and spending $20 on lipstick, when I can get a perfectly fine tube at the walmark for $2. I'm not a professional model, I don't need the fancy stuff. I am not booked for a photoshoot today. Never been able to justify make-up money. I have other vices-this is not it. Please don't remind me of this post, if you catch me in Sephora buying $30 NARS blush. But maybe in a loving/kind way, you can say, crazy lady, put that blush down and get your booty back to wal-mark.
