Happy Mid-week!

These are three of my favorite looks I have put together over the years to answer the question - what to wear to a Christmas party?  I love the burgundy velvet blazer look - but I also like the faux fur leopard one.  And, I know a lot of you like the pleated red skirt paired with that grey leopard coat.

My encouragement for those anxious moments, days, situations...

Anxiety also means to take thought or being “… apprehensive, or worried about what may happen; concern about a possible future event.” The Lord once told me, “Anxiety is caused by trying to mentally and emotionally get into things that are not here yet or things that have already been” — mentally leaving where you are and getting into an area of the past or the future.

Philippians 4: 4, 6, 7: Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Twice in this passage the apostle Paul tells us to rejoice. He urges us not to fret or have any anxiety about anything but to pray and give thanks to God in everything — not after everything is over. If we wait until everything is perfect before rejoicing and giving thanks, we won’t have much fun. Learning to enjoy life even in the midst of trying circumstances is one way we develop spiritual maturity.

My encouraging words to think about today...
One of the first people in American business to be paid a salary of over a million dollars a year (when a person earning fifty dollars a week was considered well off) was Charles Schwab. 

Schwab says that he was paid this salary largely because of his ability to deal with people. I asked him how he did it. Here is his secret set down in his own words...

“I consider my ability to arouse enthusiasm among my people,” said Schwab, “the greatest asset I possess, and the way to develop the best that is in a person is by appreciation and encouragement.

Nest Candle // Star Earrings

This candle is spiced orange and clove - one of my favorite scents.  When I was younger at Christmas time, my mom would simmer an orange, cloves, and cinnamon sticks on the stove - and the smell was wonderful - and it brings back such good memories.

First - a shout-out to my team - the Ohio State Buckeyes for winning the Big 10 Championship - and securing their spot in the college football playoffs!  It was a frustrating (and scary) first half, but they made it happen in the second.  Thankfully!  Now, I look forward to more football!  Yay!

I hope you are having a good weekend.  I am sharing a couple of small gift ideas - candles and jewelry make good host or stocking stuffer gifts.  The jewelry pieces I have picked are all from a favorite brand of mine.  And, the candle brings back good memories.

My encouragement today...

The most persistent choice you face is whether to trust Me or to worry. You will never run out of things to worry about, but you can choose to trust Me no matter what. I am an ever-present help in trouble. Trust Me, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea. Psalm 46:1-2

From an uplifting daily devotional.

Happy Friday!

My encouragement of the day... from this book.

When dealing with people, let us remember we are not dealing with creatures of logic. We are dealing with creatures of emotion, creatures bristling with prejudices and motivated by pride and vanity... 

Benjamin Franklin, tactless in his youth, became so diplomatic, so adroit at handling people, that he was made American Ambassador to France. The secret of his success? “I will speak ill of no man,” he said, “ … and speak all the good I know of everybody.” Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain—and most fools do. But it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving.

Styling Rachel Parcell Leopard Puffer Jacket for Winter

SHOP THE LOOK
1. Leopard Puffer Jacket (40% off) // 2. Hoop Earrings // 3. Crewneck Sweater
4. Grey Jeans // 5. Quilted Bag // 6. Boots (40% off)

I bought a leopard quilted jacket this fall, and I love it. I have owned a black jacket for many years - but getting a coat with a pattern is fun to wear.  I  typically style it with black jeans, but I love the idea of pairing it with grey jeans and a beige sweater.  And, if you would rather have a vest - this leopard puffer vest is 50% off - and a great deal!



My encouragement for today from a favorite author of mine.

Every single person, every single event in life, God knows about it, has control over it. He allows things that are sometimes difficult for us to understand, but He certainly is in control.  There is nothing outside the absolute total control of almighty God. 

The angel of the Lord encamps all around about those who fear Him.” —Psalm 34:7 

God is our protector. Now, if He chooses for some reason to open the door to something that’s painful, are things out of control? No. That door couldn’t open unless almighty God allowed it. Remember Romans 8:28. If He allowed it, God intends to turn that pain, hurt, loss, or difficulty into something good in your life.

Cyber Monday Deals + 3 Stylish Winter Outfits

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving week!

With all the great sales this past week, I have been thinking about different outfits I want to style this winter.  One of my favorite outfits is a simple sweater with boots.  And, I also love that plaid shirt.

My encouraging words for today...

Let’s cease thinking of our accomplishments, our wants. Let’s try to figure out the other person’s good points. Then forget flattery. Give honest, sincere appreciation. Be “hearty in your approbation and lavish in your praise,” and people will cherish your words and treasure them and repeat them over a lifetime—repeat them years after you have forgotten them.
