I Love a Good Mystery!


>

I’m so flattered to be highlighted on Sharon Srock’s blog this week. Despite my PINK PARTY last week, I didn’t get enough of LOVE! Is it really just that twitter-pated feeling that bubbles in a chest? See if you agree with me! http://womenofvalleyview.blogspot.com/p/callies-second-hand-lessons-28-sep.html

Pink Party: My Love Story

Welcome to my PINK PARTY offering. Some of you have shared such wonderful stories, deep and heart touching. Mine is … not one of those.

I know that love is patient and kind according to 1 Corinthians 13. I also know that Paul included a few more characteristics, even adding some things that love isn’t. Like it’s not envious and it doesn’t boast. Hmmm. So I started off my Love Story on the wrong … well … page. Continue reading

Pink Party in a Blue Dress – Guest Post by Jenny Hammerle

Don’t we all want to be Cinderella? Some times over and over? (Probably why romance novels are so popular!) I have to tell you my next PINK PARTY guest truly played that role. I heard such stories about her romance with a real Prince Charming in the royal court at the recent ACFW conference. Jenny Hammerle has a precious story worthy of a novel!

Pink Party – Most Romantic Gift by Jennifer Fromke

What is it? The ring? Chocolate? Flowers? A Maui vacation (oh yeah, that’s definitely mine! LOL!) My PINK PARTY guest today shared a romantic gift that was decidedly … different. Yeah, let’s call it that!

News! Totally Cool!

This is me, embracing the pink! I’ve always been told that pink is a good color for me, but I’ve resisted because it wasn’t my favorite. (My FAVORITE is forest green – not a good look on me, though.) So as pink has literally grown on me, this year, my girls all gave me new items to enjoy the shade even more. A new purse, scarf, and matching wallet. I confess, I’m beginning to like pink.

But today’s news gives me an even better reason to do a little fuchsia hugging! Continue reading
