Day 5- Short & Sweet

There are a lot of really great practical reasons that I like about not wearing makeup. It takes like no time at all for me to get ready, which really comes in handy when I'm chasing after 4 kids especially if I'm running late.

I've also realized that I'm a crier. I used to pride myself on never crying. I thought I just wasn't that kind of girl. Now I see that I actually cared more about the way that I looked then I did about just being "the real me" in that moment. I'd rather stuff my emotion so I wouldn't smear my makeup. How superficial. Again I was at this conference today and was overwhelmed with emotion. It was a beautiful thing. I love the freedom I'm experiencing. That being said *sigh* well I think that even now if I felt released I would totally be wearing makeup again. No hesitation. However I think that from now on, I'm going to let the tears come. If I can go without makeup then I can certainly manage smeared mascara. But I digress. While at the conference I spoke with a woman who had a Word from the Father. She said to me verbatim  "Papa wants you to know that you are pampered with His love, mercy, and grace. You are protected, guarded and directed. His beauty fills you and runs over. You leave a puddle of His love where ever you go. He delights in your uniqueness and radiance."

I have no more words....

    It is so hard to look at what is really on our insides but when we do we are so blessed to see the changes Jesus has made in us and we are so blessed that we recognize we need change.... some people live their whole lives without doing that and i believe they are not happy people bc of it! Love the blog!
