Little Honey got glasses!

**Warning** I am opening up and telling you about my feelings - so be nice!!

Well about 2 months ago I found out from our birth mom that her daughter got glasses. I figured it was time to go get little honey checked out. Sure enough he needed them! I had a feeling that he would - but still hoped that he wouldn't need them! I cried when I found out. I know, I know it sounds so selfish and silly - but as someone who has worn glasses since they were 10 years old - I know how hard it is! I was picked on at school, made fun of so bad. The glasses would fog up when I got hot, they would get dirty and hurt my nose and ears. I hated them!!!

I did not want that for my little honey. He is perfect. So I cried.

I know it was selfish. Why should my perfect son have to wear them? I made sure he didn't see me cry and I really pumped them up. Telling him how cute he would be and listing off all the people we knew who wear glasses. So he was excited. Hubby didn't care either way - he has perfect eyesight and didn't understand, but he was nice about it ♥

Well that night I prayed. "God, please forgive me for these selfish thoughts. I should be thankful that my son has eyesight. He CAN see and nothing else is wrong with him! Thank you Lord for my beautiful son and thank you that we can afford to go to the eye doctor and afford glasses. Please change my heart and forgive me."

I am thankful that glasses are all we have to worry about. There are many parents out there who have to worry about Cancer, blindness, hearing loss, asthma, etc, etc, the list could go on and on. I am thankful that I HAVE A SON to worry about!! Thank you JESUS!

So without further ado - here are his new glasses ~
He just got them and we went to the playground at the mall. This is his funny face!
He told everyone there kids and adults "These are my new glasses!" I was so proud of him!!

Pretty cute, huh!

Well I just wanted to share...thanks for listening.

New Blog to check out ~

I wanted to share with you a new blog to check out! I could call her my friend, counselor, kindred soul, my wanna - be mentor , but her name is Michele.
She is an ordained minister and frequently speaks at my women's group and teaches Bible Studies at our church. She started a ministry called Faith Builders Ministry. Their vision is "one of Hope, Faith, Joy, and restoration for God's people. This ministry is for anyone who has had a reason to give up, give in, or give out before their race is finished."

She has written three books and is currently working on the fourth. I am excited about her current book as she is graciously letting me help edit it with her! I can't wait until she is complete and we can share it with you!

Here is a snippet from her blog -
I do not want to be a balanced believer I want to be an untraditional, sold out, radical, on fire, willing to be lead by the Holy Spirit even if I do not know where He is leading me kind of a believer. I want to strike a match in the heart of God’s people wherever I go. I want to make a difference in a place where being the same has been accepted as fitting in but in reality if we were to examine the truth its only living with a compromise standard. I do not want to compromise the Word of God any longer.

I don't know about you ~ but that's how I want to be!! I am learning so much from her and you will too!

You can find her books at Amazon.com ~

In addition to her book "Ripened on the Vine" she also has a free downloadable study guide to go along with it! Isn't that nice! I just love Free!! You can find it on her web page.

She recently started blogging to update the World on her writings and what is going on with her life and the ministry. You can find her blog at Faith Builders Ministries  and now on FACEBOOK!

Please go check out her BLOG and give her some blogging LOVE ♥ Maybe we can convince her to write a guest post here or even a giveaway?? Let's show her some Love and see what happens!! I would love to share that with you!

GIVEAWAY - Purex Complete Crystals Softener - NOW CLOSED

Have I told you I am a member of Purex Insiders? I get to try out new laundry detergents and softeners and spread the word! (and giveaway a few for you to try too!)
I was excited to try a new type of Fabric softener! I just love the smell of clean laundry and a fresh new scent is wonderful. Well a few weeks ago Purex sent me a sample of their new Complete Crystals Softener to try.

Here is some information and facts that Purex shared with me and the reasons why I am so excited about it!

Introducing Purex® Complete Crystals SoftenerTM*; a purer way to get laundry that smells clean and fresh for weeks. 92% natural, this product’s unique crystal form works differently than traditional oil-based softeners that coat fabrics with oily residue, because it infuses fibers with long-lasting fragrance. In addition, since you add it directly with your
laundry, this means no more waiting for the rinse cycle, no messy residual gunk in your washing machine, and no more stains from spilling liquid fabric softener.

Purex Complete Crystals Softeners are safe for all laundry and will not harm, wear down or discolor your fabrics like oil-based softeners.
Safe for all fabrics, including baby clothes, athletic wear, towels, and whites. Unlike other softeners, Crystals WILL:
• Preserve the flame retardant benefits of your children’s clothes
• Retain your athletic wear’s wicking ability which draws sweat away from your body
• Maintain your towels’ built-in ability to absorb water
• Keep your white clothing from yellowing and graying vs. using traditional softeners.
The product won’t harm your clothes and is safe and convenient for the entire family!
No oily residue!!! This is great news! This is the reason why I never use the old fashioned type of fabric softener on my towels because I always had a hard time drying off! I didn't know why until now - and with Purex Complete Crystals - I didn't have this problem! YEAH!

I tried the scent "Fresh Spring Waters" the blue Crystals. The scent was nice - but I am really excited about trying the other scents ~ "Lavender Blossom" and "Tropical Splash". I think the lavender one will be my favorite.

So are you ready for the good news??? Purex was kind enough to give me not one, not two, but THREE coupons to try it out for yourself FREE!!! One Free 28 oz. bottle each for three winners. That means I will randomly pick 3 WINNERS!
