Title: Sherry Burton Ways Virtual Book Tour Day 1!!!

I am happy to share with you a special article by Sherry.

Your Favorite Color Is For Your Healing Color.

The colors and images in your decor reflect aspects of yourself that can build you up or tear you down. Color can nurture your soul as food nourishes your body. Determine what colors are your favorites. Which ones feed you right down to your bones, and energize and heal you? Whatever colors they are, make sure that you have them somewhere in your environment. Choose items in your favorite colors, such as fabrics, vases, dishes, and flowers, and place them where they can feed you at a glance. Whether it is the violet light within an amethyst crystal or the vibrant turquoise glaze on your favorite mug, feast on the colors that nourish you.

The best way to learn about the effect of colors is to look at those we choose in our home environment. These give many clues to our personalities and inner feelings. Carefully chosen colors can build our self-image so that we are better able to cope with the stresses of modern life and improve our relationships with others.

Color preferences coincide with major changes in our lives, and a change in attitude or physical state is often accompanies by a change in our color preferences. Think about one of your favorite rooms in your house. What colors are mostly in that room? Do these colors uplift you or make you depressed? If so, find colors that make you feel good.

Tomorrow Faith Hunter will host the tour on her blog Faith Hunter with a video: “Mid Winter Blues? Here are Two Quick Interior Tips!” http://embracedc.com/about/blog

7BLOGGERDAYS Jan15: Describe what I cooked last

I took no pictures…probably because it was GONE before it really hit my plate!!

The last meal that I prepared was salmon croquettes, scrambled eggs, and  grits!

When I make my croquettes, I used Pankos Italian Herb bread crumbs to coat them, I mix in diced green onions and an egg! I always purchase the canned pink salmon.

I scramble my eggs w Kraft Shredded Four cheeses, a dash of salt, pepper and garlic salt!

My grits are seasoned w pepper and Country Crock butter…talk about DELISH!! Breakfast food for breakfast? That’s fine…but FOOD IS FOOD!!

We ate good last night! I actually could stand to eat those again tonight! I will refrain LOL!!

 

7BLOGGERDAYS: JAN11 Favorite Moment

One of my most favorite moments is when I decided to start my own business!

I was hesitant to do so in such a trying economic time…but one day, while on a brief medical leave from my job, I formulated my plan! I also recall being selected for jury duty, and thinking to myself “there is a chance that I will NOT get called; let me take my notebook and write out some ideas”…and that’s exactly what I did! I did not get called that day for duty, so I spent a FULL 6 or so hours writing out my vision for my company.

Well, I’m coming up on a ONE YEAR of being an entrepreneur, and it feels great! I woke up this morning to an email from someone soliciting me for their brands, plus emails from clients updating me on things that they need…that instantly made me smile. I LOVE what I do, and I am grateful that I did not let the financial hardships of the world cut into my dreams! Once I got over my initially hesitancy, I discovered that everything needed to “Just Do It” was on the inside!!

I am a better woman for staying focused on my goals! I challenge you to do the same!

Sunday Morning!

It’s Sunday morning. I don’t know about anyone else, but this is one of the most PEACEFUL days of my life.

I can count on the beauty of a quiet ride to Starbucks (Sunday morning routine is to get my Daddy breakfast and my coffee), and just to be alone w my thoughts of praise.

These past few weeks have been trying, traumatic, troubling yet triumphant. God won’t allow me to lose, because He created me in His own image…a winning image. I smile w the peace of God covering me and my loved ones, and I’m ever so grateful for His grace and mercy. He constantly stands up inside of me, when I’m at my weakest…and His arms have never been closed to me…that’s why I praise Him; because He’s already done enough! If He NEVERRRRRRR does another thing for me, I have 34–almost 35–yrs worth of blessings. I could be dead, on drugs, unemployed, transportation-less, homeless, hungry, poor, UNLOVED, alone…but I’m the opposite of ALL of those things. I have TOO MUCH to thank God for…

Spiritually Maturing w Every Keystroke,

Elle
