love like no other

symbolic of my life
beauty in the midst of chaos
all because of Jesus
He loved me so much
He chased me
He never gave up on me

flylady habit for december

I am starting a new series.  
Each month I'm going to focus on creating a new habit. 
December is all about keeping a clean kitchen sink. 
I admit it.  I have not made it a priority to go to bed with a clean sink.  I have always wished I cared more than I did, but I didn't.  Make any sense?  Well, I guess I have just been plain lazy.  And I don't like that about me, SOOOOOOO, I've made a decision to make a change.  
I have loved FlyLady for years.
It's true.  And I've tried to follow her example, but I have failed miserably several times.  When I say several, I mean a million.  
So, here's the plan to turn that around.  FlyLady has a series of BabySteps to creating habits that are supposed to take a month to complete.  It hasn't worked for me that way, so I thought why not work on just ONE baby step for the entire month & it's gotta stick.  It's just gotta.  I am determined.  
I love how a clean sink makes me feel.  
And I feel like my kids deserve a clean sink too!
If you need to make this change, also.  Join me.  
I'll follow up at the beginning of January to let you know how I did.  I'm excited.  I feel like I can do it this time.  Woo-hoo!  

"Shiny Sink 101" is coming soon.  
That's FlyLady's simple directions to deep clean your sink.

new bedding :: good deal

I consider myself to be SUPER picky.  It's true.  I have been looking for a comforter for a LOOOONG time.  This one stood out to me right away when I saw it.  To me it looked beautiful & cozy, two of the three requirements I have.  Oh, it met my third requirement too...a good deal!  
So...I got it.  
I later looked it up online just to see what it was selling for & to see if I truly got a good deal.  Online it's on "sale" for $180.  I bought mine (minus the throw pillow) for a mere $30.  
Verdict:  Good Deal

HE will make a way

HE makes life beautiful.  It might seem dark & gloomy sometimes, but if you give your life to Jesus, He will make a way.   With faith, He WILL make a way!
