Beauty? and Change?

As I sit here waiting for my nails to dry, on my left hand only, I think what am I doing?
Why am I taking up time waiting for them to dry just to do the right hand next?

But beyond waiting, why am I going through all the effort to paint my nails, knowing it won't last! They never last more than 24 hours painted, and then what?

So I think aome more, why do I even bother, I don't wear make-up more than once a month, not sure of the last time I had a pedicure or real manicure or the last time I even wanted one. I blow dry my hair once a week and pretty much come to the realization that I am a pretty simple woman.

I have been with my husband for over 15 years and this is who I was then, and if he loves they way I look, SO why change?  Well maybe because society has forced me to? Made me see that my 36 year old face is showing it's age and that I "Must change that"!

But do I? Should I? I love being low maintenance and pretty much age to wash and go! With an active family, it is a bonus to be ready fast! Plus I think that the Lord made me just like this, why should I over due what he has given me? So I sit waiting for my nails to dry only to see how long they last! And reminding myself that I do not have to change!

I guess it is the season....right

Sunday we heard a great message at church about Joy and how it is so hard to find JOY this time of year.  This sure is true and the point was made that many loose sight of the "Joy" they still can have in their lives, even when everything else seems to have pushed the joy aside.  

As Christians we must try hard to find JOY in a season that can cause us so much stress and bring on depression.  We  must stay focused on that one thing that can bring us JOY!  Be it the Lord, our children, employment, or even simple memories of days past there is something to focus on.

I guess as I looked back at this week I have had a hard time finding JOY in my life, there was even a point where I wanted to fold up the Christmas tree (like the Grinch does in the movie) and throw it out the window!  I had it with all the planning, parties to go, concerts, cooking cleaning, wrapping etc!  I just want it to be simple!  So this week I tried and really hard too, but finding joy was not as easy as I thought it might be.  So again I head into the weekend (the one before Christmas) and I will be trying even harder to find JOY!
