Having Patience

Over the past several months, I've learned a lot about patience.
I've always been pretty patient but this has been at a different level. I think there are two different categories of patience:

+ Dealing with others whom you need to have patience with. For example- someone may get on your nerves, but God gives you the patience to handle them.
+ Being patient in waiting for people or for something to happen. For me, this is the most difficult.

Here lately, I have been frustrated to tears. I have prayed for patience and have been patient. I try to keep reminding myself that everything happens in God's timing. There's always a reason for things to happen the way they do. I know it must be that God is making big plans for me.. I know they will be worth the wait.

Isaiah 40:31
But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.

Colossians 3:12-13
Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowance for each other's faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.

Blush Jewelry Product Review

I am such a Huge fan of jewelry and accessories! They always add the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. I was so excited to help out Blush Jewelry with a product review. I fell in love with every single item on their site!
They sent us two great items to review- the Crystal Ball Earrings and the Crystal Flower Bracelet.

Our lovely Blogger Adrienne reviewed the bracelet

I was so excited to receive a package from Blush jewelry recently. I carefully opened the package to see the beautiful beaded crystal bracelet that had arrived. It was a White and Light Pink Crystal Flower Bracelet with Light Pink Cord. It was gorgeous and fit my wrist perfectly with its' adjustable/slide-style clasp

I had the opportunity to review these gorgeous earrings. There are several things that made be fall completely in love with these. First off, I love how these gorgeous stud earrings sparkle with lots of different colors, meaning they match pretty much any outfit perfectly. Next, i love the fun look and shape of them. They are fun and unique and playful. 
Sometimes I feel like I have those days where I really just don't want to wear any jewelry. I call those my laid back days. Well these are perfect for those kinds of days. They are lightweight and you barely know your wearing them!
The next awesome part about these earrings is they come in lots of great colors like orange, yellow, lime green, blue and many more! They are on sale right now at a great price of $14.95!
