~ Wedding Prep and Prayers ~

Good morning. While rummaging around the closet this morning trying to figure out what to wear to a wedding that we have to go to tomorrow night I decided to share the process with you Life At Home readers. I like to read stuff like that so I thought you might too.

This first picture is of my favorite nail polish Essie's, Mademoiselle. It is a medium sheer pink that just makes your nails look clean and fresh. Tonight while John is playing golf in his golf league I'll give myself a manicure and pedicure.
The plan is to wear this brown dress. Hopefully it won't be too hot out. It is an evening wedding so I think I'll be OK.
Next up is The Henry Ford Hospital 3 Day Diet. This thing has been around for years sometimes with different names and a few variations. There are only 2 days left until the wedding so I won't be able to do the whole thing but even a couple days should help get the dress to fit a little better.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all that have been devastated by Gustav. While we go about our daily business of living there are many around the world that are dealing with much suffering. Thank God for his Word that tells us to cast our cares on Him and He will bear our burdens. It would be very easy to become despondent while preparing for a wedding while others are preparing to be evacuated from their homes or fearing for their lives in the European Georgia. If you are reading this from any of these troubled areas please know that our hearts and prayers are there with you.

God bless you all where ever you are.


  1. Good morning Sue.... I can understand your feelings about nature's fury... the sun embraces and the winds can destroy, but in the end the safety of our hearts in Him win out.
    Have a great time at the wedding.. I'm sure you'll look great on that pretty brown dress...



  2. Hi Sue,

    That was fun and what a gorgeous handbag. It will look stunning with your brown dress. I like your tip on the 3 day diet. I'll have to remember that one.

    Have fun at the wedding.

    The brown dress with that exquisite purse...WOW! I can just see you in it. That purse is awesome. Hope you have a great time at the wedding.
    Thanks for your sweet comment and offer! Lots of family & friends have extended their homes as well. We are lucky that we can stay at hubby's place of work, only a 20 minute drive from home. That allows us to stay at home till the very last minute, then get back to house when it's safe to protect it from, sadly but true, the looters. One of the ugly facts of life, we've had them many times before.
    I'm with you about Georgia and all other areas that are struggling with freedom and hardships in life. Going thru a huricane is nothing compared to what some souls are faced with every day. We are so blessed here in America and I pray that more people appreciate the opportunities & freedoms that we have.

    XOXO, Sandi
