Thoughtful Thursdays: Matthew 6:1

"Be careful not to do your 'acts of righteousness' before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven." Matthew 6:1

A few nights ago, Zack had to work late in the evening. So I came up with a brilliant idea that I would rush home from work and do all these special things for him while he was gone. I scurried home from work, stopped by the grocery store to get a few of his "favorites", started a load of laundry, washed a load of dishes, changed the sheets on the bed, straightened up his den, did some light dusting and vacuuming, made him some of his favorite drinks (pink lemonade and tea) and lit a candle that sent a sweet aroma around the house.

I did all of these things, thinking all the while in my head, "Zack is going to love this. He is going to walk in the door and be so appreciative and hug and kiss me and give me all this praise. He is going to be SO impressed with me." When he did arrive home later that evening, tired, sore and dirty, he was very appreciative, but after I TOLD him everything I did.

Then Sunday morning rolled around, and our pastor, Dr. Ezell, preached on the above passage from Matthew 6:1. Can we say, "C-O-N-V-I-C-T-I-O-N????" Oh, how I had failed as a wife!!!

As Jesus says, we are to do all things to glorify God! We are not to do things for men to see us and praise us, but we are to do things for God, to bring honor to him!!! It says it in the scripture right there...if you are doing things to please man, " will have no reward from your Father in heaven."

I learned that doing those things are already my responsibilites as a wife. I should have been doing them to glorify the Lord, and be the best wife he commands me to be. Not solely doing them to recieve praise from my husband.

Remember Matthew 6:1 today as you do your daily activites. Do them to honor and glorify God and not try to impress others!

Trendy: Nail Polish Pen!

I love to paint my nails! So when I saw this in one of my magazines last week, I was totally pumped. The brilliancy of this new Nail Polish Pen makes me want to paint my nails every day! No worries, no spillage, no mess :) All you have to do is click the pen a few times to circulate the paint into the brush tip, and paint away! Lots of companies are now creating these. This featured one is Yves Saint Laurent Nail Touch nail polish pen ($23). Have you tried this yet?

In other news, my WHEEL OF FORTUNE audition is tomorrow. I'm so excited to get to do this and totally have no expectations of moving on to the next level. In fact, I'm sure I'll be the girl that screams "Pat, give me a T!" and he'll be like, "Sorry, but the player before you just picked that letter. There are 5 on the board." :)

I know, I all want to know who won the FREE GIVEAWAY FRIDAY! Well, stop reading this and go check out the entry below in the Giveaway Post :P The winner has been posted there!!!

Welcome to The Pink Potpourri!

Welcome to the new blog! The Pink Potpourri is a fun, girlie, classy page updated daily for you! Thanks to my wonderful friend, Michael Thomas, for helping me design and create this new page!!! It was designed to bless you each day!

The meaning behind the title choice, The Pink Potpourri? Well, pink is my most favorite color, soft, girlie and beautiful. Potpourri has two meanings: 1) the smelly good, fresh, flowery aroma to brighten any room and 2) a hodgepodge, collection or assortment of something.

This new blog represents all those things. Five new topics will be posted each day of the week, so you will have something new to be educated and entertained by each day!

Monday Mayhem
Trendy Tuesday
Hump Day Hilarities
Thoughtful Thursdays
