My Haul from Old Navy Today, 30% off until 1/30

So I shopped Old Navy today and I hadn't even planned on it. It was major fun, as always, which is why I went, lol. They ended up having a sale, 30% off everything in the store, excluding "denim." Yeah, I scored with that today, I so didn't think there would be any sale.

I got a pair of ballerina peep toe flats that are a light lilac/purple; very sweet and they are super duper cute. I get a new pair of ballerina's like once every blue moon, not often at all because I don't wear them often enough. One long sleeve, but light-fitting sailor blue and white striped shirt, a yellow tank (don't have one, believe it or not), and a navy blue polka dote scarf which is super cute, and a last minute buy. lol, I eyed it at first but didn't pay it much attention, but when I saw someone carrying one as if they were going to purchase it, I couldn't resist, and added it to my things :D She is sooooo pretty, my navy scarf. My favorite colors for clothing and fabric right now are navy, yellow and purple. And, I ended up being attracted to all of these today.

The ballerina peep toes were $15.75 (incl. 30% off discount), the yellow tank and the blue sailor long sleeved striped shirt were both $3.48 each (incl. 30% off discount), and the polka dot scarf was $8.75 (incl. 30% off discount).

HLN's Nancy Grace to air 50 missing persons cases

Primetime's HLN will spotlight those lost in the shuffle
by Whitney Jenkins

Popular primetime news show, Nancy Grace, will be placing the spotlight on 50 missing persons cases beginning this week, throughout the next two months. "Nancy Grace: America's Missing" airs Monday to Sunday beginning at 9 p.m. EST on HLN.

Grace is known for provocative news casts, in an effort to provoke dialogue among homicide and crime experts, and the public. Popular stories include the Casey Anthony case, of which Grace provided around-the-clock nightly news coverage. Missing persons date back as far as 20 to 30 years.

"Anything that can move a case forward to me would be worth it," says Grace. "If a case gets solved that would be like a blessing from heaven."

Grace intends on showcasing several minority missing persons cases, as many of these stories are lost amidst the outrageous coverage given to missing Caucasian women.

Abba God, I love You!!

I am so delighted right now. I have been harping on my firstly published Web article all day long. It is so special to me!! This opportunity I have been given. I am so excited, Lord!!! AHHH I cannot stop grinning; grinning from ear to ear and shouting short stanzas of bird-like gladness.

Chirping away, chirping away I am about this publication. Chirping away about how greatly it makes me smile. I see my name in lights, I see your glory shining through. Shining through me, fulfilling me more, and more. For Your glory I write; and for Your glory is my glory. I glory in You for by You all things are completed. OH THE JOY OF THE LORD!!! HE will do great things, splendid things on your behalf. THE JOY OF THE LORD will have you giddy with excitement at the little, yet extraordinary things He brings. He knows how to please you--He knows how to make you smile. If you get where HE is, You will learn what makes Him smile too.

Blessed be the name of GOD my saviour!!!!

God's best,

Good morning

I am beginning a new thing. A new thing, for it is a new day in Christ.

A new thing on so many levels.
It is a day to seek the Lord. WHILE He may be found.
