Since the beginning of the year, it seems I have attended funeral after funeral. My heart breaks for the families because I know the feeling of loss they are experiencing. The pain is almost more than you can bear. Many of you know, I lost my Mom to cancer in 2009. Although I may not mention […]

I’m not an eloquent writer. Although I write a blog, it’s a blog about fashion & beauty so it doesn’t require deep thinking or imagery with my words. Today I wish I was that kind of writer.
Twenty two years ago on this very day, Wayne and I married and the two became one.
It was not a Pinterest worthy wedding. It was simple but sweet. We were surrounded by family and friends who loved us at the church where my husband was on staff as Minister of Music and Youth.
We committed to love each other and above all to we committed our marriage to Christ.
As I look back over the last twenty two years it has not always been easy because life happens. We’ve had a wonderful marriage but we’ve also had difficult seasons.
I’ve made more mistakes than I care to admit. If I could go back I would do some things differently.
It’s taken me years to figure some things out……..I’d listen when I needed to listen, I’d forgive and forget, I wouldn’t want to be “right” so much of the time, and I’d enjoy each moment more because life goes by so quickly.
I am blessed with a husband who is not only passionate about me, but more importantly he’s passionate about Christ and so today I celebrate our life together. Here’s to many more years of serving the Lord together!

Happy Sunday Friends!!
“I can think of no moment more incredible, and no place more beautiful than before the throne of God. The daily battles become more painful. The race becomes even more draining. But we discover he has given us the greatest gift of all; a sinless Savior that died for us.
We are undeserving, sinful, wretched creatures, and yet we have a God so gracious, so merciful, so loving that he sent his Son to die in our place for our mistakes. Before the throne of God above, we have the perfect plea and we look upward and see that He has made an end to all our sins. -Brian Kim

I didn’t take this picture but saw it on facebook from Women Living Well. It reminded me of how I love to start my mornings.
The last few days I feel like I’ve been bombarded with sad news. Friends that are suffering with cancer, marriages that are struggling and families dealing with serious problems.
I never have all the answers, nor do I pretend to. But the one thing that I know is spending time in God’s word is not wasted. It is manna for our soul!
Today, take time to spend some quiet moments in His word. I promise you’ll be blessed!

This past week my sister has been in Nicaragua with Compassion International. I’m so happy that she had the opportunity to go on this trip but I have missed her (don’t tell her that) and I can’t wait to see her. She flys home today!
Traci was able to meet the child she sponsors through Compassion and his family. He is such a handsome young man!
She went to his home and as I looked at this picture, I noticed the dirt road they’re walking on to get to his home. It’s such a contrast to the paved road I drive on everyday to get to my house.
I’m so thankful for the ministry of Compassion International. By sponsoring a child we get to be the hands and feet of Christ. We can make a difference in a child’s life!

I shared this picture and these words on my facebook page yesterday and I wanted to share it with you too.
In honor of Mother’s Day, I have to say I would love to have one more hug from my Mom, one more time to hear her say “I love you”, one more time to wake up and call her first thing in the morning, one more time to hear her say, “Cyndi you’re a great Mom!”, one more time for her to remind me of God’s grace and how it covers all my past mistakes.

Lamentations 3:22-23 says, “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”

Hi sweet friends! I just couldn’t bring myself to talk about a Fashionable Christmas today after yesterday’s tragic events. My heart has ached every since I heard the news of the school shooting. Like many of you, I wonder why? Why do these tragedies keep happening? I also wonder when we as a nation are going […]
