Saturday is one of the most busiest days of the week. Everyone is hustling and bustling getting things done like cooking, shopping, cleaning, soccer, dance lesson with the kids. My saturday is spent today first thing this morning going to florist with client to view sample arrangement for upcoming event, banking, preparing for a tasting party this evening, baking for church bake sale tomorrow, cooking dinner I could go on. But when I was riding in my car I smelled the aroma of sweetness coming from my back seat. The sample centerpiece that the florist gave us was giving the greatest aroma their are orchids, hydrangea and four different ROSES! So in the midst of me driving and sipping coffee, talking on speaker phone, it hit me slow down, I even took my foot of the excelerator! We never stop to smell the roses or for the lack of better words just SLOW DOWN and enjoy life. The sweet smelling fragrant in our lives is the aroma of our Lord Jesus Christ, so why are we not smelling this lovely fragrance? we are busy, plain and simple. Take time today and smell the roses. As for me I am relaxing and smelling the fragrance of this lovely centerpiece and spending time with the Lord.

We all know that Spring is here and we should be "Spring Cleaning", How many of us really buckle down get the pail, mop, cleaning solution and clean, reorganize the closet, the cupboard? show of hands please. When we really look over our homes is their anything that is cluttered that we need to give away to charity, get rid of it, start something new this year wahoo!. Well when you are looking over your homes, check your spiritual inventory the word of God says "Let a man EXAMINE himself". So you might be saying how do I do this?Set aside a special time to begin your inventory.“ Schedule an appointment with yourself. Set aside a day or a weekend to get alone with God! Clear your mind of the present hassles of daily life.
“Happy are the pure in heart, for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8)
You may say were do I start? Analyze your past honestly do a “searching and fearless moral inventory,” you must step out of your denial! “Let us examine our ways and test them.” (Lamentations 3:40)
Keep your inventory balanced! don't just look at all the bad things of your past. As you compile your inventory, you will find that you have done some harmful things to yourself and others that you were unaware of. No one’s inventory (life) is flawless. We have all “missed the mark” in some area of our lives. Although in recovery we are not to dwell on the past, but we need to understand it so we can begin to allow God to change us. Jesus told us, “My purpose is to give life and life more abundantaly (John 10:10). One thing that has always helped me was to journal, I write things down all the time. My Pastor ( Pastor Tarran Carter) has taught the woman of Precious Jewels (which is awesome 2nd Tuesday of every month 7pm) to journal. So let's start the clean up mind, body and soul, and yes the house ladies declutter & simplify, remove everything that is a hinderance to your walk with God spiritually and physically.
Have a Blessed day......for more informationon Precious Jewels see below Ciao!

According to this Scripture, you truly are a Master Piece! an original. So when planning that event be yourself who said we had to go with the traditional centerpieces, or a traditional wedding. Your wedding decor should be a reflection of you and your grooms personality (yes! ladies you have to include him in the decor). Your home decor should be a reflection of your personality. My husband choose our wedding favor which was these measuring spoons so cute with different saying on each spoon, why? because we both love to bake. So have funning planning that special day or just a dinner party for some close friends either way enjoy it.
