31 Days to a Fruitful Marriage Day Twenty Nine: The Beautiful Art of Sacrifice

 
Sacrifice for another person is a lost art. Most people just aren't willing to do much sacrificing. "It's my way or the highway!!"
 
Sacrificing your belief in God or your morality isn't what I am talking about, here. I am talking about now having to always have things your own way. And it's not needing your needs met on a 24 hour a day basis. Sometimes, you have to meet someone else's needs, despite not meeting your own.
 
Perhaps it's giving a back rub that really don't want to give because your spouse has had a stressful day. Maybe it's giving up your savings for a new purse so your spouse can have that new golf club he wanted. Or, allowing your spouse to sleep in, even though you are tired as a dog, to make them happy.
 
Sacrificing your own needs for your spouses, and not for the idea that they will return the favor, can be very freeing. These small acts, listed above, can mean the world to your spouse and can heal a lot of hurts. Try sacrificing for a month. Maybe, try every day to sacrifice in a small way and see how well it's noticed.

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

Dancing With Dad

I have been working on a project these last couple of weeks for my previous company. Yesterday, I was working on my computer and heard roaring laughter coming from Avery's room. I walk in and found Jason and Avery dancing and singing away. 




 By sheer coincidence, this popped up on my Timehop today. Avery was only 1 in this picture.

Boy, are these kiddos lucky to have such a great dad! It makes me heart melt.
