fix me

I have to take sometime away for myself my lovely friends, to make some decisions in my life that will be hard either way I look at it. Needing this time is crucial, please pray that I will be strong and reliant on God, who I believe is the only one that can fix me.

This song, above, speaks to where I am in this moment and without saying much more, I hope you listen and understand why I will be absent for a while.

Take care and know that I will miss you more.

When you try your best but you don't succeedWhen you get what you want but not what you needWhen you feel so tired but you can't sleepStuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your faceWhen you lose something you can't replaceWhen you love someone but it goes to wasteCould it be worse?

Lights will guide you homeAnd ignite your bonesAnd I will try to fix you

And high up above or down belowWhen you're too in love to let it goBut if you never try you'll never knowJust what you're worth

Lights will guide you homeAnd ignite your bonesAnd I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your faceWhen you lose something you cannot replaceTears stream down your faceAnd I

Tears stream down your faceI promise you I will learn from my mistakesTears stream down your faceAnd I

Lights will guide you homeAnd ignite your bonesAnd I will try to fix you

Cheers Lisa

love her sparkle

Well here I am again posting about my love of sparkle, but with a twist. I would love to share about a few of the lovely women bloggers I've been fortunate to meet over the last month or so, and who in my humble opinion sparkle from the inside out.  

Firstly I would like  to introduce you to... Drum-roll please - Dainty Doll House, she is so inspiring and eloquent in the way she writes, that I can't help but get a dose of her frequently...even though I don't comment as often. She has a way of making you feel like she is someone you've known all your life. I don't know which I love more her street style or her inspirational post filled with quotes. be sure to check her out here looking most classy. Thank you so much Kizzy for being a source of encouragement to me through your blog. 

Secondly, Mrs. Sutton @ The Hill House Dairies, who is the mother of 3(but you can't tell) and shares her love of interiors and who loves to find a bargain whether she is attending an antique fair or flea market, her finds are amazing. Actually you never know what she'll acquire next, but she keeps me coming back for more.

Thirdly,  A Very Sweet Blog, I just adore Kim and her shenanigans. Check out her most recent post on her visit to Party City, trying on halloween costumes, here. Kim's blog is definitely a must read, so drop by and tell her Lisa sent you.

I know I can go on but I won't. So here are a few more inspiring lady bloggers, that I hope you will visit and come to love as I do. Continue to sparkle everyone and thanks again for all your inspiration. Cheers my Lovelies and a Happy weekend ahead.

quote of the day

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’ We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. 
We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

— Marianne Williamson (via quote-book)
