Life is Beautiful

Beauty in life is found in many places. On dark days, we know we will see the light again. The ashes will scatter to the wind to let the sun shine through once more. Embrace the good days. Carry them with you on the not-so-good days. Hope will get you through the tunnels of life. Just keep heading for the light at the end. The worst days make us stronger. The best days are our reward for hanging in there when all seemed hopeless, but we didn't give up. You've been there before, and you came out on the other side just fine. It will happen again. Find your joy and keep it close for those darkest of days. God is with you regardless of the situation. Know He will always see you through those tough times.

If you think about it, wouldn't life be boring if everything went well every day? Those challenges and those puzzles are good for us in so many ways. And not in ways that are good just for us but for others as well. If you think back, how many times have you used your own past circumstances to help others with their problems? Several times, I would imagine. So, cheer up. Let your joy bring beauty to every day.

Have a joyfully blessed day,


Life is beautiful

Being God's Ambassador: Meditation 4

Let's prepare to meditate . Start playing your relaxing sounds/music on another device if you like accompaniment with meditation. With your tissues and water beside you, get in a comfortable sitting position. Close your eyes if you'd like. Now, relax your entire body, starting with your forehead, between your eyebrows, your jaws, your neck and shoulders, your arms and legs. Feel the tension release as you relax. Allow the stomach and shoulders to naturally rise and fall as you slowly breathe in and breathe out. Today's meditation affirmation is "I am created in the image of God. He provides everything I need to be His ambassador." Let's repeat this affirmation to ourselves as we concentrate on our breathing for a few moments.  Continue your slow, concentrated breathing as I guide you through today's meditation. Listen to Meditation 4 . In Genesis 1:26 NLT (New Living Translation), God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” God made u

Love My Granitestone Cookware

I bought my Granitestone cookware June 3, 2023. I loved these right out of the box. Now, after nearly 5 months of use, I'll have to say this is the best cookware I've ever owned. And I've owned lots of cookware since my husband and I got married nearly 35 years ago. I'm actually considering buying one of their knife sets too. If I do, I'll leave a product review on here for those as well.  Granitestone is not paying me for this review. If you know me by now, you know that I started this website to help other women in every aspect of life that I can. Why tell you about this today ? Because I cook our meals nearly every night of the week. And I feel that 5 months is long enough to tell you about these. They haven't warped yet like most cookware does - usually after the first use. These are very heavy duty.  I really like the glass lids so I can watch my meal more closely. These lids are also vented with small holes so I don't have to tilt them to vent. It is d
