Cheetah + Baseball Tee = Happy Me

Hellloooo!!  I thought I’d just quickly show off what I wore to church this past Sunday.  Sunday’s seem to be the only day of the week I actually get dressed up.  And by up I mean I’m wearing something other than sweat pants and a t-shirt!  Because let’s be honest… my nice clothes + my kids = upset momma with stains evvvvverywhere.  Do you moms feel that way?!  I sure hope I’m not the only one!  I had to show off the Celtic Knot too.  In this photo I’ve actually tucked the tails behind the knot.  I’ve decided I prefer it this way.  Those tails kept buggin’ me!
And now for a little pick me up shall we?!  We all need it from time to time.  In church we talked about seeing others as they may become.  It made me reflect on the way the Lord sees each of us.  The way the Lord sees me.  He is no respecter of persons.  He doesn’t care how cute my outfit is, or how awesome my hair looks.  I know He loves that they make me happy and feel a little bit more confident.  But that’s not why He loves me.  He cares about my heart and the type of person I am.  How do I spend my time?  Do I spend enough time serving?  Am I willing to sacrifice for a neighbor in need?  Do I judge others?  Am I too critical?  I was just very touched by the thought that God truly loves us all.  He’s not judging us by the homes we live in or the cars we drive.  He’s judging us on our hearts.
In this Conference Talk there was a story about an American prison warden who was well known for his efforts to rehabilite the men in his prison.  “Said one critic, “You should know that leopards don’t change their spots!” Replied Warden Duffy, “You should know I don’t work with leopards.  I work with men, and men change every day.””
If we could only see others how God sees them.  Would we be kinder?  Would we be more loving and more willing to serve?  Just food for thought.  With Easter approaching let’s all make a goal to see others as God sees them.  The world would definitely be a better place!
Anyway.  I hope you guys have fabulous Easter and we will see you next week!

  1. Love the leopard story! And I think you should start doing baby girl hair tutorials. My baby girl is really close to Savy’s age (she was one on March 8) and I have no clue what to do with her hair. She won’ wear a head band anymore, and just started pulling out any sort of clip that I stick in there. Help!? Her hair is just long enough that she looks like a little orphan without something done to it. Anyway, I love your blog. And you. I am pretty sure if we knew each other in real life, we would be buds. 😉

  2. LOVE this! It’s so true, a lot of times I have to step back and say, does this really matter? Is this something I should worry that much about? I know my heavenly father loves me in my pjs with my hair on the top of my head. He loves us for our hearts like you said, not our outward appearance. I have been trying really hard to look deep into a person’s heart, if their intentions are meant to be good or if they are going through something, etc. I think often times I tend to judge on just certain instances rather than who the person is! Thanks for the message! Made me thing even more!
