Memorize scriptures

Since becoming a mom my brain is always completely scrambled it seems. I have a harder time remembering things. I used to have what I considered a really good memory, but I would not dare make that claim these days!

My mom gave me a book by Lisa Whelchel called Taking Care of the ME in Mommy. In it she talks about something she calls Scripture Primping: writing out scriptures that coordinate with your primping tasks, and sticking them to the mirror where you put on your makeup each morning.

Foundation: "For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ" 1 Corinthians 3:11

Eyebrows: "And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell" Mark 9:47

Eye makeup: "All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit" Proverbs 16:2

Mascara: "A rebuke impresses a man of discernment more than a hundred lashes a fool" Proverbs 17:10

Finishing powder: "Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything" James 1:4

Blush: "To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also" Luke 6:29

Lipstick: "Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment" Proverbs 12:19

more pictures of the Vatican

On day two of our trip to Rome we climbed all the way to the top of the Vatican. There was an elevator that would take you up the first 300 stairs or so, but the line was long and we thought we would just climb them and not wait. Well, that was a mistake! After we got done climbing the first 300 we had about 600+ more to go. So, if there is a line when you go for the elevator, be sure to wait in it. It will be well worth the time!
This picture is of a mosiac inside the Vatican.  It is just one of many.

I thought it was pretty cool that they let you go out here.  Just hours before we were staring up at these statues while we waited in line.  Pictures of the statues from the Vatican courtyard.

September 29, 2009 | Leigh Harper

We announced an exciting new partnership with Disney Parks this morning on Good Morning America. Disney Parks is recognizing families and individuals who volunteer their time to help improve communities by giving them a free one-day ticket to a Disney theme park.

Those in Canada, Puerto Rico or the United States who volunteer their time in service to a participating organization beginning on Jan. 1, 2010, will receive a free one-day admission ticket to a Disney theme park at either Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., or Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif.

The new program is being celebrated today with a five-city launch and large volunteer projects led by L.A. Works, Chicago Cares, HandsOn Atlanta, HandsOn Miami and Volunteer Canada. HandsOn Network will help people find volunteer projects that align with their interests and lifestyles.
