Make No Mistake, He Knows My Name

Make No Mistake

We live in a world, where anyone can be famous in an instant! One video, one picture, one hashtag that goes viral and you could end up on the morning news. It might be temporary, but for a short time you could be famous.

Television shows like American Idol, The Voice, and America’s Got talent are looking to make someone famous.

I went to high school in a small, artsy town. It was a college town and many of my friends were apart of the local theatre. We had an outdoor drama production and I remember going there many times and seeing my friends on stage.

I realized at a young age, acting was not for me. When you get cast as a dogwood tree in the Easter production at church, you know you’re probably not the best actress.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve seen all the tragedy that goes along with being famous. Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber seemed innocent when they started out and now they are both a mess. Who would want that??

I’m sure many of you reading this are like me. You’re a Mom, a daughter, a sister, a grandmother, a wife.  You do “ordinary” things. You go to the grocery, you clean your house, you cook,  you go to work, you go to church etc.

Here’s what you need to know. You ARE famous, maybe not by worldly standards but you are famous in your Father’s eyes! He adores you and He knows YOUR name!

Do we need any more?  This post came from listening to this song. Every time I would hear it, I’d smile. It’s true, we’re adored!

 

Have a blessed day!!

Camouflage Pants For Women Over 40

Let’s talk camouflage pants for women over 40. Who would ever have thought that camouflage would be “in style?” Not me!

Camouflage Pants For Women Over 40

When I think camouflage, this is what I think of, my husband has worn camo for years. Being an avid hunter and fishermen he wears camouflage gear all the time. (I had a deer in the picture but I was afraid you might not want to see a deer. I know it might be foreign to some of you, but we live in the south, my husband hunts and goes fishing, yada yada yada.)

Just so you know he’s a very sweet man, here’s a picture of Wayne with Colt that I recently snapped.

Colt and Pops

Well, I’m not a hunter but I’ve been wanting to try the camo trend.  I also knew my husband would love to see me in some camo. :-) I think the key when wearing camo pants is to make sure you add something “girly.” I don’t want to be mistaken for a hunter.

Camouflage Pants For Women Over 40

I wore this bling bling necklace from the LOFT.  I was hoping it made the statement, “she’s not wearing camo to go hunting.”

How To Style A Military Jacket

I added a military jacket to my closet last year and I’m ready to start wearing it as soon as the weather cools down. If you have one, or are planning to buy one, here’s how to style a military jacket.

I love this casual look. It’s easy to pair the military jacket with a pair of jeans. Add a pair of booties and it’s perfection!

I also think you can add the military jacket to a dressier outfit. I love this feminine look.

Beauty For the Heart~~This summer will go down as a summer of tragedy for me. I hate to even say that but every time I turn around there’s another tragedy. I’m talking about families that have experienced so much pain. I feel so helpless. I pray and I pray and I pray and yet my heart still aches.

As I was driving yesterday this song came on the radio. I shared it with you in June and I know I don’t usually share songs during the week but for some reason I felt I needed to share this today. Maybe someone reading this needs to hear that “Hope” changes everything. I know I needed to hear it!!

 

Have a blessed day!

Have a blessed day!

Styling a Floral Blouse

Good morning!! I’ve been wanting to add some floral to my wardrobe but truthfully I was a little scared. When I think floral, I think old lady. But when I received this floral blouse in  my Stitch Fix box, I thought I’d give it a try.

Styling a Floral Blouse

The blouse has a slit in the front that’s a little revealing so I added a cami. I later realized I could safety pin it and it wouldn’t be so revealing.

I did some fall shopping at The Loft in Lexington Green. If any of you live close, you should definitely go in there. Cathy (a long time friend of mine) and Emily work there and are amazing at putting outfits together.

I put this together on Polyvore to show you how you can take a sleeveless floral top and wear it through the fall season by adding a blazer and some ballet flats.

Have you tried to style anything floral? 

Beauty For the Heart~~I’m getting so excited about beginning our small group this Sunday. Here’s another quote from the book Not A Fan.

“So in case someone left it out or forgot to mention it when they explained what it meant to be a Christian, let me be clear: There is no forgiveness without repentance. There is no salvation without surrender. There is no life without death. There is no believing without committing.” -Kyle Idleman

Have a blessed day!
