I was in one of my devo times and was reading on youversion's active word study.  The title for the day was An Honorable Institution.   It started of talking about GOD's view of marriage.  It got me thinking a lot.  Do I view marriage the way God does?  Do you?  God views marriage as honorable.  So what does honorable really mean??  The study found the original Greek language for honorable and the word used was timios, which means to hold in high esteem or to highly respect something.  :)  VERY COOL right??  Well it gets even better... The same word timios is used to describe the gemstones that adorn the very foundation of heaven described in Revelation 21:19:  
The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of PRECIOUS stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald,  

NOT ONLY that but its the same word Peter used to describe Christ's redeeming blood in 1 peter 1:19:
 but with the PRECIOUS  blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 

So we compare gemstones of heaven and Christ's redeeming blood with marriage!  MARRIAGE is something so important in God's eyes.  WHAT A GIFT from him!  So I was thinking do I apply a similar value to my marriage as I do with CHRIST's Blood??? (Just to clarify, Christs blood is UNPARALLELED and without rival.  The fact is that Christ and marriage both must fit into the same category of priority called "more important than me.")  I think God holds more value and honor in my marriage then I do, which is a good start!  LORD help me to value my marriage more and to hold it in high esteem and to highly respect it!  IT is a blessing from you and it is precious (timios)!!!!! 

So even today at the park a friend was telling me how nasty it was to hear two ladies belittling their husbands... WIVES don't do this!  BUILD UP YOUR MAN!  One thing I have been doing is praying praying praying for my husband!

That is so true we cannot tear down or husbands in any situation. Not in public nor in private. We must die to ourselves daily. Love your blog :o) Please follow me at !

Me too--We are that family issued a 30 day challenge to not put down or husbands or talk about them negatively with others. I've been keeping that in the forefront of my mind to watch my tongue!!

I agree--It is neither appropriate or honorable to tear down your hubby. I believe that tears down a marriage quicker than anything else.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
