Arm and Hammer has two new invisible sprays, one for body and one for feet.

I tried the Invisible Spray Powder first, and it really is invisible, I know how could that be? But it is, and it sprays on in a cool dry mist.
Relief. The spray has a nice light scent too.

Next I sprayed the Invisible Spray Foot Powder on my feet. It sprays on invisible, yep just like the product shows, and the mist is a dry cool, refreshing feeling.

Hand Lettered Truth, 60 Inspiring verses from God's word, by Debbie Bratton

There are many of times a Bible verse is needed through out my day. I'll admit I'm not one that can recite Bible verses, book, chapter, and verse.  I mostly remember a verse from a hymn I've sung at church or Summer camp.

I have my Grandmother's Bible, one of many in her house I'm sure, but it's the one I kept after her passing and cleaning out her home of many years with my Grandfather.

Her Bible is not in a case, nor tabbed for each chapter. I'm ok with using her Bible for church services, but for my own reading, I look to supplemental books, like those with pictures, color, and larger print!

Debbie Bratton's amazingly, beautiful, colorful, and gorgeous book:
The cover has a raised title that is smooth and somehow comforting when you hold it in your hand for reading or just as you sit quietly in thought.

The pages are splendid. It's a gift to yourself or your loved one, or that hard to buy gifts for person. Take a look at the art work, each page is so calming and pretty.

How are you? yes, you, How are you?
The question that is asked to you or by you over and over again in our daily travels.
If you are the one that ask the question, do you wait for an answer? Do you really care how that person is? We are in a rush you know. We don't take a extra minute to wait for the person's answer.

If someone asked you how you were, what is your normal response?
I always feel they are asking how my health is so I respond "Well".
I wouldn't want to say I was ill if I was. Ha, especially these days.

Those of you who respond to the "how are you question" are you waiting for an answer of "good" "can't complain" "could be better", you know the typical responses. So when the person gives their response, what say you? I'm gonna guess it's a nod and your reply good, good. And off you go on your way...

What in the world would you say to someone that told you they were fearful, scared, unsure, or their soul is unhappy?  Gosh, that might take a bit longer to reply to that question. Be ready!

Victoria Osteen has a new book out FEARLESS & FREE, Inspirational thought to set your attitude and actions for a great day. 


I've been enjoying reading FEARLESS AND FREE, Inspirational thoughts to set your attitude and actions for a great day. In the book there are stories of Victoria Osteen's life, bible verses, prayers, and direction on how to have a great day.

Have you had a great day? In my life I think they are few and far between. Why is that I'd ask myself. Probably because I don't know how or make the effort to have a great day. My days are pretty much the same, nice days, but not great.

I'm ready for some great days!!! A change in attitude and action too.

Look for Vitcoria Osteen's book: FEARLESS & FREE, INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHTS TO SET YOUR ATTITUDE AND ACTIONS FOR A GREAT DAY at Barnes & Noble, GoodReads, and Amazon.

The Biblical Genealogy Chart giveaway

I enjoy researching my family genealogy through documents, photographs, web sites, and family stories.
I think it's so neat to see where our relatives came from, what ship they traveled on to come to America, and who served in the early years of defense. 

Have you thought about all those relatives that came before the dates research allows us to study? Like who were Adam and Eve's children? My mom told her three children that when it comes time to name our babies, to get their names from the Bible. Good advice. I picked Elizabeth and Hannah for my girl's names.

The Biblical Genealogy Chart begins with Adam and ends with Jesus. 1900 A.D. through 100 B.C. 
That's a lot of names to choose from for your babies!

  A few Features of The Biblical Genealogy Chart:
  • The chart is printed on Astroparch Sand Paper. 
  • Size 11x17 inches and is suitable for framing or laminating.
  • Timeline is Adam through Jesus.
  • Books of the Bible listing.
  • Dating Before Christ to Anno Domini (B.C to A.D).
  • Information and stories on the margins.
  • Accurate.
  • Giftable to family, friends, Clergy, Students, Weddings, Birth of Baby, New home, New Job, and all occasions.
  • Hop to it for Easter gift giving.

Did you ever make a family tree, you know the kind with a tree drawn on a piece of paper that you fill in your name and put in the names of your parent, their parents, their parents, as far back as your teacher instructed you to complete? If my children were still young and we were in the home school mode due to schools being closed at present, I surly would be having a lesson on Bible genealogy with this lovely chart.

The chart is great reference and great conversation topic for family and visitors in your home. Keep a few charts on hand when company comes to visit and you can present them with their own Biblical Genealogy Chart.

Look for the The Biblical Genealogy Chart for sale on Amazon.

Is Dollar Tree the new Five and Dime store?

I'm a fan of Dollar Tree, for decorations that is...I bought this bunny garland and the gift bags at DT. This is a first for me-decorating my mantel with gift bags. Not quite decorations, buy I'll go with it this year.

We are moving to a new place, and I've been packing holiday decorations into totes.  So I put the bags on the mantel. But the real reason is...

We have a cat. Did I mention we have a cat. A cat that will find a way to get himself into a box, bag, or tote. In his younger days he would jump up onto the mantel. Two for one task done, decorated mantel and out of reach of the feline.

I have fond memories of the Five and Dime store in the town my grandmother lived.  My sister and I would walk to the store from her house and pick out a few things we had to have.
I bought my Grandmother this can opener on one of those shopping trips.

When she passed away and we were cleaning out her house, I claimed my gift back. It's tucked away in my dish cupboard and some day my kids will clean out my dish cupboard and find the can opener. They'll get a good laugh out of it, as I do now.

The metal guitar is held on by a magnet. I doubt my grandmother ever used it for opening cans or bottles. She put it in her dish cupboard and I saw it on every visit to her house - asking myself what was I thinking when I bought it, buy hey I was like 7 years old.

THE WAY BACK movie night giveaway.

The Way Back’ will be in theaters beginning March 6, 2020.
A thought from the film: We can't go back to the past, but we can move forward.

I just happen to have two Fandango tickets to giveaway for this film starring Ben Affleck, but first a bit about the film:

Jack Cunningham (portrayed by Ben Affleck) is struggling with addiction when a priest offers him the job of a basketball coach position at his (Jack's)  former high school. 
Jack reluctantly accepts the job.
During his coaching he finds a glimmer of hope for his future and a second chance to make his life positive.

Did Jack play basketball in college? Professional? or did he take a different path after high school? 

Mistakes, wrong turns, wrong crowds, and wrong decisions can weigh us down that keep us from grace. We become stuck, reluctant, and unable to move forward when the past is heavy on our soul.

Move forward and don't sit in the past.  
Find your peace. Find your faith
