1 Peter

For my devos I have been reading in first Peter and I I wanted to share some of the verses that God has been using to speak to me...

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurr ection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
~1 Peter 1:3~

Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed.
~1 Peter 1:13~

Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart. For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.
~1 Peter 1:22-23~

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
~1 Peter 2:9~

Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
~1 Peter 2:12~

So today Heather and I had some time to kill between our church breakfast and work so we stopped by the dollar store and got some stuff to decorate our house for christmas! Our intentions weren't to decorate for another week or two but I couldn't help it I love Chirstmas sooo much.... so here is our house now:

The tree pre decorations
The tree after is was deocrated

A Day to Remember

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

To perm or not to perm?

I'm going to be getting my first perm next month... I sound so old... and I'm trying to decide what style of one I should get here are my top 5 your vote would be much appriciated!

1) So I know this is a man but I'm thinking that I really could pull this one off...

2) the thing that really drew me to this perm was the bangs the little wave that's going on is truly amazing!
3) I really like the volume that this one has.

4) This one also has good volume but what really sticks out to me is the curl on top and the lack of curl on the bottom
5) This one is ok... not my favorite but I needed a fifth
