The Bow, Rainbow, Or It’s Colors©


“The bow, rainbow, or it’s colors, is not the logo for homosexuality, gay pride, or an alternative lifestyle. It has been used, resembled to, outside of it’s true meaning.

The bow, which shall be in the cloud, is the token of the everlasting covenant that God made between Himself, the earth, and every living creature of all flesh, that when He will look upon it, that He may remember his everlasting covenant that the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.”

(Reference 9:12-19 (KJV))

I’m thankful to know this, you should know this, Lord willing, my children (to be) will know this.” – BDW©

Today’s Inspirational Quote


You are not beautiful because of the world’s standards.

You are beautiful simply because God has made you in

His image.

You’re His masterpiece.

He’s super proud of YOU!

Savings Challenge!!!


Inspired by a status I saw on Facebook regarding saving $0.50 a day, I decided to embark upon this savings journey myself and posted a status challenging my Facebook Friends to do it also!

Our initial goal was for the month of February. From the date of my status post on Facebook until the end of the month we were to save $0.50 a day and I would post more details about the challenge here at EffortlessBeauty.

Well, here it is!

The principle of saving and the art of doing so is unknown to some;  forgotten by many, or may seem unattainable to few.

 Do you have a just because jar?

How about a future goal? (Whether it be short-term or long-term.)

A just in case of an emergency stash?

Well, one of my goals is to travel more! Fifty cents a day isn’t much but it’s a start!

How many of us have pennies just laying around the house?

Fifty pennies = Fifty cents!!!

It doesn’t have to be just quarters!!! Change is change, money is money, and it will all spend the same!!!

Benjamin Franklin advised us, “Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship.”

Well if little expenses or a small leak can sink a great ship, just think of what saving $0.50 a day can do towards your goal.

Yeah….

One way to accomplish this is to start saving!!!

Consciously saving!!! On purpose!!!

Making the effort to physically put the $0.50 into your

designated savings container each day. 

Not only will it help build discipline in this area but it will also keep you in remembrance of your goal.

Here’s the plan!

Whether it’s a jar, piggy bank, shoebox, etc., find something to start collecting your change in.

I found the cutest piggy bank at the Dollar Tree Store.

Once you have obtained your saving’s container, start TODAY putting away $0.50 a day.

February has passed and March is almost over, but if we start now we can be ready for April!

At the end of each month, you can either (a.) deposit the funds into your savings account or (b.) keep them in your savings container and deposit them at a later date…say 3-6 months later or later than that if you choose.Whatever the case, SAVE, don’t spend it unless you have reached your desired goal and it’s time to use it for that goal in particular.

Disclaimer:  For those of us who haven’t consciously saved in a while it will take some time and effort but YOU/WE CAN DO IT!!!

 Send me your picture and  a description of your goal to bdwebb1433@gmail.com.

As we begin to save and accomplish our goals I will blog about our success!!

Sound like fun?!  LET’S GO!!!

Today’s Inspirational Quote


Recognize and enjoy the “now” moments in your life.
Sometimes we spend alot of time worrying about our “tommorrow(s)” that we fail to enjoy our “today(s)”. – Bridget D. Webb

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. – Matthew 6:34 (KJV)

Seasons…….


 As my first post of the year, I will keep it brief and leave room for the other things that I will be sharing with you! 🙂

Meanwhile…….I’m learning to recognize and appreciate “Seasons”.

As King Solomon so eloquently shared with us,

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (KJV)

Learning to recognize the “season” for each “purpose” is key!

And that my friend is what I am embracing….

Until Next Time,

Bridget

Don’t Bite The Bait…….©


I heard something today that was very thought provoking:

Offences come from Satan trying to make you fall. This person went on to explain the Greek meaning for the word offence, this really got my attention, —–>Offences “skandalon” in the Greek, originally was the name of the part of a trap to which the bait is attached, hence, the trap or snare itself.

So in other words, Offence is a trap or snare itself, that Satan uses to try to make you fall by the way.

If we are not quick to release an offence that has been directed toward us, it will lead to our own downfall.

Unforgiveness will cause you to be bitter, have unhealthy relationships, unanswered prayers, misperceptions, it will also cause you to be out of the will of GOD.

Let us be quick to forgive! Quick to release an offence! Refuse to allow it to find ground in your heart! Even if the person who brought the offense never repents or asks forgiveness from you…. YOU let it go!

Don’t you become ensnared in the enemy’s trap to cause you to fall by the way.

It’s empowering to know who your real enemy is….don’t get caught up on the person who is giving the offence…look beyond the person and go straight to the source…Satan himself.

Offences will come but you don’t have to bite the bait!

Walk in love and exercise righteousness!
Great peace have they that love thy law:and nothing shall offend them (Psalms 119:165)

GOD Bless Ya’ll!!!
