A Totally Random Tuesday

This post is going to be very RANDOM but I wanted to share some random things flashing through my mind! ha!
First off on this random Tuesday post....I was driving in to work this morning listening to my FAVORITE station KLove and I learned some interesting facts that honestly floored me. Lisa and Eric were talking "interesting facts" and how only 4 out 10 Americans knew the true meaning of Easter!!!! This may not be shocking at all to you or you yourself may not even know the true meaning which only led me to feel completely ashamed for "assuming" more than 4 out of 10 would know. I sat and thought to myself how easy it is for society {especially people who do not know Jesus personally} to get confused about Easter and the true meaning. I mean every store you walk in....every window you walk by is flooded with candy, eggs, bunnies etc.........When we go out and see these window displays or walk into stores we dont see anything that reminds us of Jesus' resurrection. We are not reminded of Jesus Christ's victory over death. My mind and heart was so heavy driving in to work this morning after hearing this.


Okay I told yall this was random. So, who watched the premiere of Jessica Simpsons show Price of Beauty last night? Me!! ha! I think shes adorable. I know not everyone will agree and thats okay. Dont stop reading if you dont care for her or her "Jessicaisms".
However, I did really enjoy the show last night. I love how Jessica picked herself up from all the criticism she has received this past year and went out and embraced it. What is True Beauty? Its crazy that what America considers "true beauty" may not even be considered beautiful in another country. Last nights show was interesting bc how many of us "bake" in the sun or tanning bed?!?! We want that golden tropicana tan right? Well last night Jessica and her crew traveled to (Bejing?--I could be wrong...I apologize) white--bleached white skin is considered beautiful there. They interviewed a lady who bleached her skin so much that the chemicals eventually burned her skin....she was a married singer and now bc of her skin she no longer sings and her husband left. It was so sad bc I personally thought she looked beautiful and hearing her stories just broke my heart that she no longer felt pretty bc of the society she was a part of. Ladies, if you can put aside your dislike (if thats the case) for Jessica the show is a must watch. :)


Okay and lastly I have to share my newest reading with yall!! Incase you have not read or even heard of the book Crazy Love--it is a MUST read. Great book! We are reading this in my small group and last night we studied Ch 5. Ill have to do a seperate post on this book bc there is so much to say about it but if you are looking for a new read this one is great!!


Happy Tuesday!

UMM...sometimes when I read your blog...i feel like its ME writing everything. 1.) On the way to my home town yesterday, I FOUND the station KLOVE and FELL IN LOVE. Its SO awesome, I cant believe I havnt ever heard of it before, and I heard the Easter sermon as well! 2.) Jessica Simpson is my ALL TIME favorite celebrity! I saw her in concert last year and I was in heaven, haha. 3.) I JUST got done with Crazy Love - my church also did a series on it. We would SO be friends in 'real life' :)

I love the Lisa and Eric show on Klove! I didnt listen this morning since I'm on Spring Break so I didn't hear that about Easter.

Also, I'm one of the few, like you, that loves Jessica! I think she's adorable! But, I forgot to dvr the show.

I love Jessica, and I loved the show last night. She is so darn funny! I think they were in Bangkok Thailand. I just about died when she got the giggles while sitting there with the monk! HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Great random thoughts, especially about Easter. I wish people would take it more seriously and see the love for them that was shed through the blood of Jesus. How He loves us!! Do they know the sacrifice that was given for us. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
