Sparks Monday

My encouraging words for the week will be on strength. We all need strength to get through each day and I don’t mean the  weight lifting kind of strength. I get through each day by asking God each Morning just to give me the strength to get through the day and it does help. Below are 2 of many of my favorite Bible verses.

helpsavesadie02052018I f you remember I recently updated you on a blind cat that needed to be adopted and soon or she was going to die. I also asked you to share her story everywhere you could. I thank everyone for doing that for me and I’m happy to report to you that Sadie Has Been Adopted!! That is right, Sadie got her ‘Kitty Miracle’ and just in time for Valentine’s Day. What a great Valentine’s Day for Sadie.

To read the full story on Sadie it can be found by going to the link via Starting The Week With Good News . Thanks Everyone.

Update On Sadie

As many of you know I asked you to share, share and share some more. I asked you to do this because it might help a blind cat who weighs only around 5 pounds. I’m here with an update on sweet Sadie. She is still alive but the outlook is very grim I’m sad to say. I have been just told she may only have a week left before Sadie crosses the Rainbow Bridge. If you know someone who wants a pet and is willing to give them a forever home. Please ask them to give Sadie a forever home. This cat deserves it.

The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties Book Review

DSCN0420INTRODUCTION:

Around My Birthday and Christmastime, I was fortunate to win a book by Courtney Livingston called The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties.  Now I can only imagine what you all must be thinking. Why would a 50-year-old want to read a book that is mostly geared toward the people in their twenties? Interesting question which deserves an interesting answer. I wondered the same thing until I started reading the book. Despite the book’s title this book is for everyone not just twenty year olds.

WHAT I THOUGHT OF THE BOOK:

This book was in my opinion fantastic. It was not only geared for our young people in their twenties but the points and ideas that were made could be used by everyone. The ideas about health, exercising, finances and much, much more. I found the book interesting and helpful to all who read it.

IS THE TILE RIGHT FOR THE BOOK?:

I will answer this question with a yes. Why is it right? I think the title is right even though this book applies to everyone the title The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties is right in my opinion because when you start young like in your twenties it help you continue the habits when you get older.

WHO SHOULD READ THIS BOOK?:

That’s an easy question. Anyone who can read.

LINK:

You can find Courtney Livingston at her blog which is on The Smart Girl’s guide to Surviving Her Twenties. This is a great blog so go and check it out.

WHERE CAN THE BOOK BE BOUGHT AT?:

The book The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties can be bought at The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties(Amazon.com) .

CONCLUSION:

Once you’ve bought and read this book, Courtney Livingston and Crystal Stewart kindly ask you to write a review at amazon.com and give your honest opinion. Also we would appreciate if you link to our blogs Courtney Livingston and WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) and also  at Amazon.com. I think you’ll find this book helpful and interesting. Happy Reading Everyone.

*DISCLOSURE*:

I was given permission to write this review and snap a couple of photos by Courtney Livingston who is the Author of the book I just reviewed. Also, I won the book through a contest on Courtney Livingston’s blog so this book was not given to me to do this review.

 

Happiness(A Poem)

I wasn’t sure what to do for Sparks on this wonderful Monday. Then it came to me, I would write an encouraging poem. As soon as I started writing the poem the words just came to me like I was writing a song. Have an encouraging Monday and rest of the week my blogging friends.

HAPPINESS

BY: CRYSTAL STEWART

Happiness is a smile~Happiness is a wave of the hand~Happiness is the sun shining~Happiness is no snow~Happiness is going to a Lady “A” concert~Happiness is mentoring someone~Happiness is shoveling snow for your neighbor~Happiness is doing something nice for someone who hates you~Happiness is a cat laying on your lap~Happiness is marrying the one you love~Happiness is having a cat or dog as a pet~Happiness is a rainbow~Happiness is a beautiful pink sunset~Happiness is knowing you have done something for someone without expecting anything in return.

Daisy Mae All Stretched Out And Showing Off Her Grey And White Belly.

Hi and Welcome to WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING). I Daisy Mae have been busy getting my picture taken for my updated selfies. I worked so hard that I just had to stretch out the length of myself. Then I find out Sister Crystal is goofing off by dabbling in poetry. That didn’t really make me happy when she could be doing more worthwhile things than trying to write poetry.

NOT QUITE.

OK, maybe I’m being a little hard on  Sister Crystal but poetry really? I forgave her when I found out the poem she was writing was about me that’s right she was writing a poem about me. What could I do but forgive her. I also have a new appreciation for poetry.
