End Times News

Would you be interested to know how current events are fitting into Bible prophecy?  Here is a link to a site called Rapture Ready.  For quite awhile now I have been visiting this site on a daily basis.  If you want to be a well informed believer this site is essential.  God bless!

Are you Awake?

Speaking as a follower of Jesus Christ, I have to ask:  Are you feeling a heaviness in your spirit these days?  Is your soul vexed?  If your answer is "yes", bless God you are alive!  If not, then I encourage you to wake up and look around.  Things are not what they may seem.  The tide has turned and the "soon" return of Christ is drawing nearer everyday.  I've had to wake up myself and ask Jesus for salve for my eyes so that I might see.  One thing that really touched my heart this past Sunday is news from the Temple Institute in Israel.  They have released the plans for the 3rd temple!  The building of the 3rd temple is a fulfillment of Bible prophecy and a sign that I have been looking for.  As I watched the video tears ran down my face in realization that Jesus is really coming. 

Here below I am leaving a few links to terrific men & women of God that are telling it like it is and dealing with issues that are facing the body of Christ.  It has been such a comfort to listen to these dear souls of God.  I hope you will find comfort in their message as I have.

Update on my Vera Collection

Well, my obsession with Vera is continuing, I am way too addicted to color.  I thought I would share my collection with you.  Just to let you know, I've always been a practical gal when it comes to purses.  Now in my 50's I don't feel like being practical anymore.  I probably should be ashamed to own so many purses, but I can't tell you how much fun it has been.

Here is Daisy kitty with my spring/summer collection of purses.  Don't these Veras look so pretty together?  All of these patterns are retired and purchased on-line.  Starting at the lower left is a bucket tote in Hope Toile (from Ebay), next is a Clare in Priscilla Pink (Vera Bradley). Back to the left is another bucket tote in Flutterby (Vera Bradley), next to that is a Clare in Jazzy Blooms (Amazon), next is another bucket tote in Petal Pink (Twice). Above Jazzy Blooms is a Betsy in Twirly Bird Pink (Ebay) and last is a Clare in Twirly Bird Navy (Ebay).

This is the beginnings of my autumn/winter collection.  Again all of these are retired patterns and were purchased on-line.  On the left is a Clare in Very Berry Paisley (Ebay), next to that is a Hipster in Totally Turq (Twice) and on top is a Clare in English Rose (Ebay).  If you will notice I buy a lot of Clare bags.  They are my favorite, they are rounded which feels good worn as a shoulder or crossbody bag.

Any regrets you may ask?  Yes, I bought three little hipsters, thinking they would work well for me.  I used one and it did not sit right on my body as a crossbody.  They are rectangular and for some reason it is uncomfortable for me.  As a shoulder bag it works alright, but still not thrilled with it.  I prefer the Frannie much better.  The little hipster in the pattern Clementine (a very pretty pattern) I sent to my niece as part of her high school graduation present.  I hope she likes it better than I did.  I used the one in the pattern Petal Paisley and have not used the Baroque one.  I intend to gift the Baroque to a lucky gal.  If you read this and would like a little hipster in the pattern Baroque, let me know, I just may send it to you. *wink*

Project Use It Up - AKA: BUS

Hello friends, I am changing the name of my monthly BUS report to "Project Use It Up".  Just thinking it better describes what I am trying to do.  Its been awhile since I have done an update.  I went on vacation and when I got back a number of things went down.  I had a changing of the babies.  Isaac went on to big time daycare, so I had to say goodbye (sniff).  And I began taking care of my grandson (smile).  And then there was some big events that happened with my younger son and his wife.  So I just did not feel like blogging too much. Anyway, here is my Project Use It Up report. 

Okie dokie, pictured above is the current shampoo I am using, Andalou lavender & biotin.  I am about halfway done with it.  I smells good and is gentle, but for the most part I don't notice anything special.

I have been using these A La Maison products in the scent Thousand Flowers.  I've used about a 1/3 of the soap and probably 1/2 of the lotion.  I like the smell which is very light and springy.  The lotion is light and absorbs quickly.  I like the lotion a lot, but they have discontinued making it.  Bummer!

In this picture of products I used up the lavender scented snowflake soap and the blue bottle of lavender lotion.  I've only used a 1/4 of the liquid soap.

I finally got my lemon collection out.  I am currently using all of these products.  The Hugo lotion in the scent Lemon & Bergamot is 3/4 gone.  The bar soap is about 1/2 gone.  And the lemon shower gel from Germany, I actually have two tubes of it.  I've just about finished one tube and will soon be using the second one.  As far as the Out of Africa lotion, I am using that as a face cream, I've used maybe a 1/4 of it.  And last, but not least, the Deo from Germany (which I LOVE), I've used about a 1/4 of it.

So that is my update.  I am so happy with myself because I have not been buying any new products the past month or so.  I do look every once in awhile, but I know I have stuff at home so I tell myself not to buy.  I have 3 collections yet to get through which are:  Coconut, Sea Salt, and Honeysuckle.
