I Need A Weekend To Be Introverted With 4Ms #Music

I've been working much these past few weeks. I feel like I'm going full speed and I just want to sit down and be introverted ALOT for awhile.
No worries. I can't explain it either.

Weekend is just like mid week. I need a weekend.

Anyway Monday is here. Let's dance.

Meet my Kitty. We love our kitty.

Hold it all together
Everybody needs you strong
But life hits you out of nowhere
And barely leaves you holding on

And when you're tired of fighting
Chained by your control
There's freedom in surrender
Lay it down and let it go

So when you're on your knees and answers seem so far away
You're not alone, stop holding on and just be held
Your world's not falling apart, it's falling into place
I'm on the throne, stop holding on and just be held
Just be held, just be held

If your eyes are on the storm
You'll wonder if I love you still
But if your eyes are on the cross
You'll know I always have and I always will

And not a tear is wasted
In time, you'll understand
I'm painting beauty with the ashes
Your life is in My hands

Lift your hands, lift your eyes
In the storm is where you'll find Me
And where you are, I'll hold your heart
I'll hold your heart
Come to Me, find your rest
In the arms of the God who won't let go

Valentine's Day Chick- Lit Book Blast + $10 Sephora GC #Giveaway

I think I want more audio books. That way I can listen while being busy.



novelistagirlbookblast BloggerGirl front under 2mb"Sassy, sexy, endlessly entertaining, and full of laughs (as well as some heart-wrenching moments), Blogger Girl is one of those books that keeps you up at night because you can't wait to see what happens next." - Tracie Banister, Author of Mixing It Up What happens when your high school nemesis becomes the shining star in a universe you pretty much saved?

Book blogger Kimberly Long is about to ?nd out. A chick lit enthusiast since the first time she read Bridget Jones's Diary, Kim, with her blog, Pastel is the New Black, has worked tirelessly by night to keep the genre alive, and help squash the claim that "chick lit is dead" once and for all. Not bad for a woman who by day ekes out a meager living as a pretty, and pretty-much-nameless, legal secretary in a Manhattan law ?rm. While Kim's day job holds no passion for her, the handsome (and shaving challenged) associate down the hall is another story.

Yet another story is that Hannah Marshak, one of her most hated high school classmates, has now popped onto the chick lit scene with a hot new book that's turning heads--and pages--across the land. It's also popped into Kim's inbox--for review. With their ten-year reunion drawing near, Kim's coming close to combustion over the hype about Hannah's book. And as everyone around her seems to be moving on and up, she begins to question whether being a "blogger girl" makes the grade in her offline life.

Buy on Amazon / iBooks / Nook / Kobo

Novelista Girl front under 2mb “A great chick lit book: a strong and confident heroine, a sexy boyfriend you can crush on, supportive friends, and plenty of conflict leading to comical results, culminating in a very satisfying ending.” – Erin Brady, Bestselling Author of The Shopping Swap Feisty New Yorker Kimberly Long runs the most popular chick lit book blog on the web, loves playing house with her sexy lawyer boyfriend, Nicholas, and is finally pursuing her lifelong dream of becoming a published author.

At first glance, her life is worthy of five pink champagne flutes. But is there more to the story than meets the eye? After hearing the phrase “chick lit is dead” more times than she’s read The Devil Wears Prada, Kim is driven to desperate measures, seeking advice from up-and-coming chick lit author, Hannah Marshak, her high school nemesis and resident “mean girl.”

As if Kim doesn’t have enough on her plate balancing her secretarial duties with her blog, Pastel is the New Black, shrugging off the growing pile of agent rejections, and keeping her best friend from turning green over Kim’s budding friendship with Hannah, Nicholas is so blinded by his career ambitions, he doesn’t see that their home sweet home could use more than a dash of sugar. This is the year when all of Kim’s dreams—professional and romantic—are supposed to come true, but will her story have a happily ever after or will Kim end up unpublished and all alone?

About the author A born and bred New Yorker, Meredith Schorr discovered her passion for writing when she began to enjoy drafting author_photo_1401work-related emails way more than she was probably supposed to. After trying her hand penning children’s stories and blogging her personal experiences, Meredith found her calling writing chick lit and contemporary women’s fiction. She secures much inspiration from her day job as a hard-working trademark paralegal and her still single (but looking) status. Meredith is also the co-founder of BookBuzz, a live author/reader event held annually. She is a loyal New York Yankees fan and an avid runner. Novelista Girl is her fifth novel.

Traveling Life's Railroad With My Family - 4Ms #Music


My mother-in-law visited with us for a week before leaving for her cruise. She usually doesn't come our direction, so it was good.
I just wished my FIL was able to visit also, but alas, he is now in heaven.

I miss him. Wished I had more time with him. Wish my children has more time with him.

Before she left, my MIL gave the kids a Gideon Bible. She wanted me to give it to them, I told her it's best she gave it to them as her gift. It's good from a grandparent.

Traveling Life's Railroad With My Family - 4Ms #Music:

Oh how they've grown.

Jamericanspice

Of course my daughter is going to photo bomb the photo with our kitty :) But at least it brought out real laughter and not just camera smiles :)


Jamericanspice

She loves this cat so much! Well they both do. Well the kids and I do . lol . He's our cat.

Hope y'all had a better weekend than I did.

I had a most wonderful day working with kids on Thursday all day. Came home and was hit with a nasty event that left me vulnerable and weak and only God knows again, why I don't lose my mind. But he holds me up. And all over the cleaning of the carpet. I must learn to not ask for anything.


MONDAY's theme (or any day you can post :)
theme around trains or railroad? In the title, in the song, whatever fun tunes can be found! :)



*What if portion control came without trying?
*What if you didn't crave carbs and junk?
*What if your body was burning fat while you're eating your delicious holiday meal?
*What if you could indulge a little without the guilt or weight gain?
*What if you could actually LOSE weight through the holidays while feeling less stressed and having more energy?
All of these things are possible with Plexus! It's time to enjoy the holidays and feel your best!

Oak Grove Suspense Series Book blast

I'm not reading anything as of right now. I need time. 
What are you reading?


reeseAStephens
Vengence Cover verticalVengeance (Book 1 in the Oak Grove Suspense Series)
When Dr. Shayla Thorn moves back to her home town of Oak Grove, she is determined that this will be a new start for her and her son. But when Dylan’s father insists on righting the wrongs of their past, she’s torn between what she knows is right and what her heart wants. But the one thing she never expected was for her life to be thrown into utter chaos.

Ryan Jacobs, former FBI agent and lead detective for Oak Grove and its surrounding areas, is determined to win Shayla’s heart and make up for the mistakes they made in the past. He won’t take no for an answer, but everything begins to unravel when he is called to the scene of a brutal crime almost identical to a slew of murders he solved long ago.

It doesn’t take long for the pair to give into what their hearts want, but when an old nemesis seeks revenge on Ryan, everyone's life is in danger. Will Ryan find the culprit in time to save the love of his life or will she fall victim to a vicious killer's vengeance?

Buy on Amazon. Available on Kindle Unlimited

Penance Cover Promo_0004_Front Vertical CoverPenance (Book 2 in the Oak Grove Suspense series)
Judson Hardenbergh's life was perfect, that is until tragedy changed the course of his life. When a fire claims his family, he gives up on everything. Will moving back to his home town of Oak Grove save him from himself or drive him into deeper despair?

For Ryan Jacobs, Oak Grove’s Chief of Police, it’s been smooth sailing since the abduction and murders that plagued the town, and almost cost him his family. Though Mathis is still at large, Ryan is confident that he’ll be able to catch him before he strikes again.

When one of Ryan’s high school friends, Judson Hardenbergh, is accused of murder, he must jump into action and determine if ‘Jud’ is capable of committing this horrible crime. What he finds is that this case is more complicated than he imagined and that penance comes in many forms.
Reese Stephens was born in the Appalachian Mountains, but was raised all over the East Coast. Since getting married Reese has settled adBBJBZjback into her Appalachian roots, and currently lives on a small farm with her husband and three children. She has a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Education, and is currently homeschooling her two school aged children. She considers herself a naturalist. She loves learning about and using natural remedies and essential oils to keep her family and herself healthy.

Writing was something Reese never thought much of, until she and her family went through several traumatic events. A friend advised her to keep a journal, but she just couldn’t put into words how she felt, so she turned to the world of creative writing. It didn’t take long for her to discover her passion there.

Reese is currently working on publishing the first book in her Oak Grove Suspense series, Vengeance which will be out this fall. The second in the series, Penance, is expected to be released spring 2017. In addition to writing crime suspense she also writes paranormal romance. Her first story in this genre is called The Reluctant Prince, expected release is late 2017. 

You can, however, read the first few chapters of it on Wattpad or her Website for FREE.

A More Beautiful You! 4Ms #Music

I was supposed to pay for and attend the "IF:Gathering" either at my church or home, but I just couldn't find one more thing to do. Now this is suppose to be a very good two day event, but again, I just didn't want one more thing to do.

Perhaps I can see it again sometime. Or will make the other ones.


The kids were invited to a birthday party at the neighbors. They had much fun as kids should have! I wish to have fun once again as children do. And sadly, I didn't get to have fun even as a child. ...bah. Sigh. Tis life.


But I can dance now. Let's get to the dancing. Perhaps one day someone will dance with me. I love dancing.

A More Beautiful You! 4Ms #Music:

Ahh, I hope my daughter will understand and feel beautiful. I hope to encourage this love inside her.


More Beautiful You
Little girl fourteen flipping through a magazine
Says she wants to look that way
But her hair isn't straight
her body isn't fake And she's always felt overweight

Well little girl fourteen I wish that you could see
That beauty is within your heart
And you were made with such care
your skin your body your hair
Are perfect just the way you are

There could never be a more beautiful you
Don't buy the lies disguises and hoops they make you jump through You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you

Little girl twenty-one the things that you've already done Anything to get ahead
And you say you've got a man but he's got another plan
Only wants what you will do instead

Well little girl twenty-one you never thought that this would come You starve yourself to play the part
But I can promise you there's a man whose love is true
And he'll treat you like the jewel that you are

Chorus
So turn around you're not too far
To back away be who you are
To change your path go another way
It's not too late you can be saved

If you feel depressed with past regrets
The shameful nights hope to forgets
Can disappear they can all be washed away
By the one who's strong can right your wrongs

Can rid your fears dry all your tears
And change the way you look at this big world
He will take your dark distorted view
And with his light he will show you truth
And again you'll see through the eyes of a little girl


*What if portion control came without trying?
*What if you didn't crave carbs and junk?
*What if your body was burning fat while you're eating your delicious holiday meal?
*What if you could indulge a little without the guilt or weight gain?
*What if you could actually LOSE weight through the holidays while feeling less stressed and having more energy?
All of these things are possible with Plexus! It's time to enjoy the holidays and feel your best!

You Make A Decision And Then It Owns You #Music 4Ms

Our pastor mentioned during his message that "you make a decision and then that decision owns you." I just learned exactly what that means this week.  And it hurts a bit, but I'm going to try and work it out honestly and pray that God will help me through and out.

Hope y'all have a great weekend. I desire for a rest day.

But Monday comes and there's no stopping it.

 A blue song for me is? Let's hope I can find one.
