HEY EVERYONE!!! 🙂 How are y’all doing?? I am doing great!!! Right now I am sitting with Jude, watching “The Backyardigans”! LOL! Fun times over here!!!! We get crazy! LOL! 🙂 How was y’alls Monday? Mine was pretty good! I worked and went to Ulta! 🙂 I FINALY spent my gift card my sister Brynne got me for Christmas! 🙂 I bought my ALL TIME favorite eyeliner… It’s Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner.. It’s the VERY best I’ve found!!!! It’s a bit spendy, but so amazing! I love it.

I also got a body scrub! I’ve never used this brand before so I REALLY hope I love it! 🙂
Check them out… Let me know if you’ve used it! I’ve had the nastiest skin lately. LOL! I used to have BABY SOFT SKIN. No lie. People used to compliment me on how smooth and soft my skin was. But man, now it’s just gross! HA! Weird, I know.. But it’s dry and weird.. I don’t know what the heck happened! I am sure it’s hormones changing and all that, but I DO NOT LIKE IT! I am pretty sure a big part is that I don’t spend hours in the tub exfoliating, and scrubbing, and afterwards lathering on the lotion for forever. LOL! 🙂 It’s difficult to spend a lot of time on myself with a two year old, but I’ve got to do something! So, I am going to give this stuff a try…. I’ll let y’all know what I think!
Yesterday, our church service was AMAZING!!!! We had a guest speaker who’d also been here Friday and Saturday nights. I REALLY regret not going to those other two services! She is truly an annointed speaker! I’m pretty sure I’ve heard her speak before years and years ago!
Anyways, she spoke about Sanctification! What a great message! Ya know, as a Christian, I thought we STILL sin.. That it’s impossible to NOT sin somehow… Whether it be cursing, or the occasional “white lie”, or thought process, or SOMETHING… BUT I learned yesterday, YES just yesterday, that yes, it IS possible to NOT sin. I know the Bible talks about “being Holy as I am Holy”.. But how is that possible? Well, lets see what the definition of Sanctification is………
b: the state of growing in divine grace as a result of Christian commitment after baptism or conversion
We can’t NOT sin on our strength. There’s no way. We may WANT to do good and want to not sin, but without giving God FULL CONTROL of our lives, we can’t do it.
This is something I have struggled with my whole life. I rededicate my life to Him and continue to do things I don’t want to do. Or say things I don’t want to say. God doesn’t have FULL, COMPLETE control. (Well, he does NOW) But you know you what I mean… We CAN be without sin. We CAN be blameless! Doesn’t mean we’re going to be perfect and never do anything wrong. We’re STILL human. We’ll make mistakes. But it’s all in how you handle them. If you sin, you don’t have to become a Christian all over again. You simply REPENT and ask for forgiveness.. Does every one know the MEANING of Repent?
