Adorned From Above Link Party On Hold

I really love hosting the link party every week, but right now I have to put it on hold.  I said that I would have our featured bloggers this week, but I haven't been able to do that yet.  I'm so sorry.  Last week my neck went out again, and it has been fairly debilitating.  I may have been able to do this week's party, but unfortunately yesterday happened.

If you have been watching the news, you saw that we had some hail in Denver yesterday.  We were hit pretty badly.  Our house if going to need some major repairs and my car was pretty much destroyed and I've only had it for about a month.  So for right now I need to put the blog on hold and focus on getting everything fixed.  I'm going to miss all of you, and if I can get some time in there I may be able to get a post or two out.  

Thank you so much for following me and I would really appreciate all of your prayers.  The house is fixable, but my neck definitely needs healing. Have a great week.
Much love to all of you.

Dear God Note 8

Adorned From Above / Dear God Note 8 / Dear God, You are so faithful.  I  pray for my family, and I am so grateful when you answer my prayers.  When I see the fruition of my prayers, I know you are there.  Today I just want to thank you. Debi

I wrote this and was looking for Bible verses about knowing God, but then I remembered there was a song, So I looked it up on Google and found it. 

Here are a few of the words.

Cause I, I know You're there, I know You see me
You're the air I breathe, You are the ground beneath me
I know You're there, I know You hear me
I can find You anywhere

I hope that you enjoy the video.

Have a blessed day.

Jasmine Face Wash and Ingredients
Now on to my favorite natural Jasmine Face and Body Wash Recipe.

I started making this face wash in February, and it is a great all purpose face wash.  It even removes makeup.  I was looking for something simple and natural, since I have skin allergies.  I also wanted something that did not have chemicals.  I looked at many recipes, and eventually decided to just make something that would clean my face and still moisturize my skin a little. It also works great as a body wash.

Jasmine Natural Face and Body Wash

8 oz Dr. Bonner's Baby-Mild Castille Soap
8 oz distilled water
1 TB Almond oil
20 drops jasmine fragrance
10 drops geranium essential oil

Put all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together.  Then pour into a pump bottle.

Rinse face with water and then use 1 squirt of face wash and start washing face.   I wash my face for approximately 1 minute, concentrating around my nose, chin, and forehead, then rinse well.

You can use a toner after if you like to close your pores, and then moisturize.  You can use my Anti-Aging Moisturizer.  The link is below.

Hot Spiced Cider with Spice Syrup for Friday's Happy Hour

Today I am sharing a very simple Hot Spiced Cider Recipe made with my spice syrup recipe that I shared with all of you last Friday.  The minute I saw the recipe for spice syrup knew that I wanted to try it in a Hot Apple Cider recipe.  It did not let me down.  This hot spiced cider recipe could not taste any better, and it is so simple to make.  You don't have to cook it for hours, the syrup adds just the right amount of spice flavors to the cider and it's not too sweet.  It was actually perfect.  I know that all of you are going to love it too.  It will be a great fall and winter treat when you  and your families come in from outside.  It will certainly warm all of you up.

Hot Spiced Cider with Spice Syrup


1 1/2 cups of apple cider
1/4 cup spice syrup


Put the apple cider in a pan or measuring cup.

Add the spice syrup and stir until combined.

Heat in a pan on the stove or in the microwave.  I heated mine for 1 minute in the microwave.

Makes 2 7 oz glasses of spiced cider.

I hope that you enjoy this recipe as we did.  I always love hearing from you.

Have a great weekend.
