The Power Of Prayer

This past week I received 2 emails from women, asking me to pray for their families. I’m always humbled that anyone would take the time to email me and ask me to pray for them. I don’t take that lightly because I know the power of prayer!

One of the women had lost a loved one unexpectedly and the other one had a family member diagnosed with cancer. My heart sank immediately when I read both of these emails.

I want to say something that can heal their hearts and yet I know I don’t have any words that can take away their pain.

The Power Of Prayer
I know what it’s like to get that devastating news that your loved one has cancer. I also know what it feels like to lose a loved one.

Tomorrow will be five years since I lost my Mom.

It’s been 5 years since I heard her sweet voice, 5 years since I held her hand, 5 years since I hugged her. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t long to hug her one last time.

I remember when she had been gone for 2 years. My husband told me this, “Cyndi, you still mourn as if you lost her yesterday.” (I think he was just worried about me.)

He was right, but truthfully there were blessings coming through those tears and those sleepless nights were spent drawing me closer to God. God was teaching me things that could only be learned through suffering.

That’s not the part of the gospel we like to talk about or hear but scripture says, “My brothers and sisters, you will face all kinds of trouble. When you do, think of it as pure joy. Your faith will be put to the test. You know that when that happens it will produce in you the strength to continue. The strength to keep going must be allowed to finish its work. Then you will be all you should be. You will have everything you need.” James 1:2-4

Scripture also says that one day, “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4

I long for that day!

This song by Laura Story has been such a blessing to me. If you’re going through trials I think it will bless you too.

 

One last thing, many of you have been praying for Bennett especially on the day she has the tape removed from her abdomen because it’s very painful. They now remove the bandages on Monday and I think the family felt the prayers so strong on Tuesdays, they want to make sure they have those prayers coming tomorrow.

The Power Of Prayer
So could I ask you to storm heaven tomorrow for Bennett? I know her family would be grateful!

Thank you for your prayers and have a blessed day!

Colored Denim For Women Over 40

Well, unless you’re living under a rock, you’ve probably heard that colored denim is all the rage this fall. And I have to admit, I can’t get enough of it!

If I’m not careful, I get in a rut and wear blue jeans all fall/winter but this year I’m vowing to wear colored denim to change things up a bit.

There are so many colors to choose from and the prices range from $25 and up. Here’s a quick peek at some of the colored denim you’ll find in some of your favorite stores.

I recently purchased these colored denim jeans from Ann Taylor and I absolutely love them! They not only fit great but their comfortable too.

Right now Ann Taylor  is offering 30% of one full price item, 40% off 2 items and 50% off 3 or more. That’s a great way to get started on your fall wardrobe.

So have you tried any colored denim yet? Do you like the look?

Fall Trend Report For Women Over 40

It’s so much fun to look at fall fashion trends! I’ve said this before, but as women over 40, we don’t have need to wear every trend out there.

Some trends are great for us, but some need to be left to the 20 somethings. Here’s a fall trend report that is perfect for women over 40.

Awww, plaid, you’ll be seeing this trend everywhere this fall. From flats to shirts to scarves. Everyone should be able to add some plaid to their fall wardrobe.

I purchased this plaid shirt last year from Marshall’s. I know some of you don’t like mixing patterns but I popped a little leopard print in my belt.

I also untucked it for a couple of pictures. (The shirt lays better untucked.)

Fall Fashion-LOFT For Women Over 40

I’m ready for fall fashion! I recently purchased a leopard print blouse from Loft. I loved the feel of the blouse and it doesn’t wrinkle. Yay!

It’s been in my closet a couple of weeks, and I’m not sure how I want to style it. Because it has a hint of soft pink, I decided to try it with my tan boots.

I thought a necklace might be too much so I wore some large earrings with some silver bracelets.

I think I would like it better if I added some black leather booties. Something like this from ANNE KLEIN.
