After being bombarded all week with tragic photos everywhere,
I want to give you….
a picture of hope.
To give you words of truth.
Words of hope.
A friend told me about this video. I don’t usually watch videos…I prefer to read. If you’re like me, humor me, please watch the video just because I ask you to. It’s eye-opening.
Did tear up as you watched the video? If you’re like me, maybe you’ve been running a recording in your head that really isn’t true. Let’s change that, my extraordinary friend. Say this with me, “I am beautiful.” Notice the corners of your mouth turn up as you say it? Repeat it again. Speak truth to yourself. It will change the way you think. Your countenance will change and you will be even more beautiful because of it. I’d love to hear how the video affected you. Please share your thoughts below.

this week at An Extraordinary Day:
It’s been an another Extraordinary week on the blog.
This week’s Joy Day! post was about how God renews my hope and joy as I see spring burst into bloom. The table in the sun room got a bit of a sunny transformation for spring too. It was a fun to do….hope you enjoy it.
Whew! This continues to be a time of transition for me. Learning how to make the most of my blogging tasks and work a new job. I have a few unfinished posts I’m working on I think you will enjoy. I did spend time adding advertisements on the blog. I hope you don’t mind. I will try to be very tasteful about this. But frankly, if there is money to be made for you simply popping by, then I’m going to receive the blessing to help pay necessary living expenses like gas and groceries.
The other day, I couldn’t believe how springtime perfect the morning was! It was a great excuse to take my ‘new-to-me’ camera out for a stroll. And boy did we have fun capturing the beauty of the day! I’m not sure…but I think I popped off 300 photos. Next to download them and get a few to share with you. That brings me to this question: How do you feel about my nature photos? If I kept the usual Joy Day! posts, and once or twice a week add decor/craft/homemaking posts, would you mind if I filled in the rest with pretty photos? This is an important question and I really need your input. Thank you. I really appreciate it.
This week I finalized some details for my upcoming blog anniversary. You don’t want to miss it. I am excited to have a VIP guest helping me celebrate my special day….April 29. And…there are wonderful GIVEAWAYS in store all week too. I know I just said it, but…you don’t want to miss it!!
Humbled and blessed.
