I also think that reading the law gives you a greater appreciation for Jesus! I mean, especially being a woman- you would have spent half your life unclean! All the symbolism that correlates with Jesus and his death is pretty powerful stuff too- all the while when we get all worried and grumbly God has this amazing plan He is carrying out!
The Early Bird Challenge has suffered, however. I took the weekend off (as planned and allowed in my rules!), however my return to the journey failed to happen this morning (I blame the return of Chuck last night!). It basically just comes down to the fact that I have to go to bed earlier (tear trickling down cheek). I just need to buckle down and do it or I will never have the energy to complete this challenge (and ultimately change my sleeping habits... which have been ingrained since childhood, might I add!).
Now for the fun stuff! I got to spend my afternoon yesterday at our local Bridal Fair acting as a model for Ajuva Medical Spa!! Yessirry Bob! I had a diamond tip microdermabrasion followed by a hydrofacial!! They then did a bridal mineral make-up application! So fun! How did I get the sweet gig? Well, it doesn't hurt having your mom as the manager of the spa now does it!? Haha- hey, whatever works?! When I got home R-Man looked at me and said, "Oh, mom! You look beautiful! I love your pants and your eyes!!"
Here are some pics of the process:
Everything but lips!
My skin feels soooooo smooth today! Glorious! It is amazing how relaxing a facial can be, even when you are having it in the middle of a conference center with dozens of people walking by! I guess nearly anything is relaxing for this tired mama these days if no little people are screaming at me! Thanks mom!
