Pretty In Pink

Among a few of my favorite things is Pink and Mary Kay Cosmetics.  The name of my business Facebook page is Bonnie's Pretty in Pink.  Everyone who knows me knows my love for all things PINK. 

As I said in my last post, I am working a most stressful job. I have to make time-seriously pencil it in-time for my babies. It makes me sad that I rarely know my 2 month old because I'm working all the time.  I know that Mary Kay is not a cure-all.  It scares me to death to be doing this again, but I so want to get out of the rat-race of living the fast-paced manic lifestyle.  If I can make this work, I can work a part-time job for less money and do what I love.  This is in me.  Do you hear me?  I've done this successfully before and had fun with it off and on for 20 years.

I don't want to go through a door that has been shut, but I do pray for open doors as I embark upon this journey that I started years ago.  I'm also praying for God's will in other areas of ministry.

In 1987, God called me to teach women.  Although, I have done this in some capacity from time to time, I feel like I have most often been in the middle of the Jordan. I'm no longer in Egypt, but I'm not in my Promised Land either.  I'm praying that God will open my eyes and ears to His will and His direction.

If you love Mary Kay and have no consultant, please give me a chance to serve you. You can order directly from the above site.  If you spend over $50, I will go in and defray the cost of shipping.

Thank you so much.  My posts will not be about my business.  Just trying to get the word out.

Happy Fall Y’all

Oh what a beautiful morning! I’m singing🏈🎼 . It finally feels like Fall in Middle Tennessee.

I don’t do a lot of Fall decor. I keep it sweet and simple.

I’ve been very busy at work, 10-12 hour days. Again, I didn’t see myself doing this at this time in my life. I come home exhausted and wake up tired but when I’m talking one on one with one of my residents and I know I’m bringing joy, I’m happy. 

I spend my Saturdays with my babies and cherish each moment.

Once again, I am doing Mary Kay and preparing for my Holiday Open House.

We have new awesome skin care and I love it!
Visit me at Be on the look out for Pink Friday deals. (Black Friday) If you’re out of anything, feel free to shop.
Hope to catch up with you later.

Happy Fall Y’all!

I am so glad to be going home to GA for a few days. It’s been a busy two weeks. We have a new baby, Claire Grace, who was a week old on Monday.

I just can’t get enough! They are super excited. My little girl is trying to find her place in this threesome. She has been the baby for 4 1/2 years. You can see those raw emotions in her little face. 

These are my favorites! 

One more and this makes me swell with pride.

This Instagram screen shot was on Christina’s page. My baby with his baby! I love the way they love each other and those babies. 

I’ll miss them all this weekend, but a few days away will be good.

This one is on her way to Disneyworld!

See ya soon!

Goodbye Facebook, Hello Blogging Friends.

I am taking a break from Facebook for several reasons.
First, it's time-consuming.
It becomes an obsession, always with a phone in hand and
not a moment when the mind is at rest-
an empty-brain zone.
Second, because of all of the above, we are looking for
others to comment, like or share. 
"Others have comments, why don't I."
Secretly I am screaming, "Validate me! Make me feel loved, accepted
and approved."  When my sense of worth and approval should always come
from my Maker.
This has been a hard few months for us, a test.
David has always been the strong one,
never sick. 
We've sought peace, pursued it and experienced it.
However, if the enemy can't get in one way, he'll try another.
He's tried, through Facebook, to convince me that our friends at home,
because they didn't comment, didn't care.
That we were gone and forgotten.
He is a LIAR! 
Last, there's always the tendency to compare.
"Her family's perfect."
"They always get vacations! The only trip I get is to the grocery store."
Thus, the break and maybe more blogging,
more time in the Word,
and more peace.
When I am blogging, I tend to look for the beauty in things-
my collections, the things and people that I love, nature and
the things that matter most.
Take for instance, this morning I had to mail a package.
While doing so, I passed a couple of yard sales.
I stopped. I backed up and spent a few minutes talking
to strangers, a simple pleasure that I haven't done in awhile.
As turning down the road to go home, I spotted a fence
that I pass everyday.
I noticed. I stopped. I turned around.
I enjoyed the beauty of the rusty and crusty,
and I took the time to consider the fence.

(I blogged a few years ago.)
how fences, keep others out.
how some fences can puncture and wound.
how fences, can stop us from going further.
Sometimes, we fence ourselves in by
keeping others out. 

We are wounded so we keep others out.
We wound because others have kept us out.
I passed a fence that was open.
I started to turn in.
The "No Trespassing" sign was an indication to
"Keep Out!"
I obeyed.
Therefore, no photo.
Sometimes, we open our fences just a bit,
but our sign continues to read,
"No Trespassing."
Sometimes fences are hidden as was one that I passed.
Had I tried to walk through the path that I thought
was a passage, I would have been stopped from going in.
Fences...I'll be thinking on this when I'm sitting quietly...
without a cell phone in hand.

By the way, we found out
that David has a full bladder of stones.
He has a couple of large ones and the rest are like grains of sand.
His prostate is another problem, but no cancer.
A couple of surgeries or one.
He is waiting to find out.

We're good and thankful and praising God
that's it's not a tumor which we honestly considered.

Thanks for your prayers,
