Our Easter 2017

Easter is probably my favorite holiday, not just for chocolates and bunnies, although that is all good, it is because it is a time to celebrate his death, burial and RESURRECTION!! 

I had Friday off so I literally stayed in Pj's all day, cleaned my house, watched netflix and had a very lazy day. 

Saturday was another lazy day, I stayed in Pj's most of the day, we had a friend coming over to cook Indian food for us, it was amazing, we had Chicken Beerani, spicy shrimp, veggie burgers, beef burgers, roasted potatoes. It was a yummy meal. 

Sunday we had church and communion which I love. Here are some pictures to show from our Easter. 

Brooke's Easter Basket 

I love this picture of my baby girl 






                       




Review of ATG



I love journals so when I was offered the opportunity to review Awakening to God, I jumped on it. 

About Awakening to God Today (ATG Today):
A devotional journal to help you enjoy your walk with God, with thanksgiving from your heart,
everyday touches and prayers. Inspiration for 8 minutes with God at the start of your day,
learning to hear His voice, memorize scripture, pray and journal. Lots of great ideas to build
your faith, share scripture, encourage others and strengthen family devotions.


It is 3.99 for the app, but I think that anyone who feels they could use a little faith based pick me up, will benefit.

Easter 2017


He was oppressed and treated harshly, yet he never said a word. He was led like a lamb to the slaughter. And as a sheep is silent before the shearers, he did not open his mouth. (Isaiah 53:7)
They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him. They wove thorn branches into a crown and put it on his head, and they placed a reed stick in his right hand as a scepter. Then they knelt before him in mockery and taunted, “Hail! King of the Jews!” And they spit on him and grabbed the stick and struck him on the head with it. When they were finally tired of mocking him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him again. Then they led him away to be crucified. (Matthew 27:28-31)
[B]ut the angel said, “Don’t be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Look, this is where they laid his body.” (Mark 16:6)
Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me.” (Luke 9:23)
“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.” (John 3:16-17)
He died for you, will you live for him?

To all of you from us....
Happy Easter!!!

6 Easy ways to show your spouse you love them.

1. Talk good about them to everyone, even when they are not around.

2. Put your phone down when they come in, ask them about their day ... and listen to what they have to say.

3. Love them always, even on days they're not the easiest to love.


4. Be honest and loyal. Two traits that show love.


5. Allow them to be who they are without trying to constantly "fix" them to be more like you.


6. Adore them for what they look like on the outside AND inside.

Champion- Movie Review



Champion 

The most amazing movie I have watched in a very long time. 
It had me laughing and crying, the story of forgiveness, hope and perseverance is alive in this movie. 

In the world of dirt track racing, a single mistake changed the life of many people forever. 

Racecar driver Sean Weathers was at the top of his game…beautiful daughter, top sponsors, the best crew money could buy and an ego that trumped them all. Just weeks before ending the best season of his life, he was in control—or so he thought. When a grudge series with another racer turns personal, the ego and arrogance that propelled him to the top causes a tragedy that sends his life spinning.


Jack Reed was successful as a businessman, but he struggled as a father. Just when they were reconnecting, he got the news his only son Ray was dead. Through his grief Jack discovers the truth that Ray had wanted to share with him, that the road to understanding and peace would have to begin with forgiveness.

The road to forgiveness is not easy, it is emotional but these two men found forgiveness and a life long relationship. 


Ephesians 4:32- Be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another 


Andrew Cheney (BEYOND THE MASK) stars with Gary Graham (Star Trek “Renegades”, ALL THE RIGHT MOVES) and Robert Amaya (COURAGEOUS, MOM’S NIGHT OUT). Directed by Judd Brannon (WAR ROOM), the film is produced by Brannon Pictures.


You can watch the trailer here, in theatres May 19, 2017

Friday Date Night Idea

Find a new restaurant or a coffee shop, try a new food- something that you normally would not try



I am the type who usually got the same thing no matter the resturant for example:
Mcdonalds: Quarter Pounder
Diplomat: Chinese
The Cabin: Pancakes

Then i decided to branch out and try something else, I realized there are a lot of new yummy foods that I love like this summer I tried Clams and mussels for the first time and it was so good.
Try it, you will have fun doing it


Summer Outfits

I am by far a fashion blogger but today I wanted to bring something different to you, this is in no way sponsored just some outfits that I found online and I am crushing on and I may have to order them.

My Perfect Day

The Perfect day for me




I was thinking while at work the other day about how much i would love to have a "perfect" relaxing day 

I would sleep til maybe 10 am, take a long hot shower because there would be no one to bother me 
My perfect day would start by me waking early — 10 am is early, for me — feeling refreshed and restored. I haven't had a relaxing night of sleep in months and often awaken far later than I had planned, feeling guilty, stiff, and still sleepy.After a hot shower, I'd put on a comfortable outfit, including nice socks (it's amazing how wearing a pair of nice socks can improve my day), comfortable skirt, a tag-less t-shirt (really, the ones without itchy tags in the back of the neck are wonderful), and my favorite shoes 

My morning routine begins with a glass of orange juice followed by breakfast at the table while doing my devotions,  An omelette with waffles or homemade cinnamon rolls sounds very nice.
After that, I'll go for a walk around the park just around the corner. By this point, it's nearly 12 pm and I've prepared to meet the day.

I like to read a couple of news sites early in my work day. Because it's a perfect day, however, I won't go to work. Instead, I'll do a little writing, a little blogging and a little bit of miscellaneous work on whatever project I find interesting or useful that particular day. Two or three hours of solid concentration should help me make good progress.

Around 1:30 pm, I'll start feeling hungry, so I'll break for lunch. It's probably leftover pizza. I don't mind leftovers at all, so why not. I feel like a Chai Latte from Starbucks is in order, i head to the mall to get SB and do some shopping

Around 4 pm, I will  start to head out to meet my hubby and daughter for dinner


On a truly perfect day, I would accomplish what I want and need to accomplish. I would feel no external obligations beyond those which I actively sought out for myself for that day. I would spend time with the people I care about and not distract myself while they talk to me — I'd have real conversations with them, when we look each other in the eyes and really think about what the other people are saying.

The day would end with a relaxing evening with my hubby and daughter doing anything that we wanted to do whether that will be playing games or watching tv, then we would crawl into bed ready to take on the next day because we are so relaxed and stress free

In reality there is no perfect day, there are days that we can feel totally relaxed, refreshed and we can take on the world, but this world is far from perfect, I cannot wait to have a perfect day in heaven :)

Friday Date night idea


Go to a hockey game 

we are big hockey fans. I am a Boston bruins Fan, he is a Winnipeg Jets fan so it is quite the rivalry when they are both playing each other. 
Hockey is a great sport to hang out and watch together.

And Still She Laughs

I review for BookLook Bloggers


Kate Merrick examines the Bible’s gritty stories of resilient women as well as her own experience of losing a child—a journey followed by more than a million on her beloved blog, prayfordaisy.com—to reveal the reality of surprising joy and deep hope even in the midst of heartache.

Merrick digs deep into the fact that our culture equates being loved by God by being blessed by Him by receiving the life we ask for. It's the type of thinking that leads so many people to discontentment, and sadly leads people astray from God Himself. If our lives are rough we must not be loved by Him, if our prayers aren't answered in our ways we must not be blessed. While in reality the Bible points out that we must "take up our cross daily" and that the path of a Christian is narrow and hard but that the rewards are worth it. THIS is what Merrick comes to realize while searching the Bible and stories of hardship and pain.


5 Minutes With Jesus: Quiet Time for Your Soul

Sheila Walsh 

This is the perfect book for the busy wife and mom, read it in the morning while your kids are eating breakfast or take 5 mins on your lunch break and study it. 

I have always loved devotional books and for each phase of my life, Sheila walsh pulls out all the stops on this one and I seriously did not want each day to end, I wanted to read more and more.
