Make-up vs. War Paint

Being the good Alabama girl that I was, I used to put on loads of make-up before ever letting anyone even get a glimpse of my face in the morning. Blessing of blessings, a few days into our marriage my husband freed me from my make-up bondage with a casual statement about how much better I looked without it. Yea!

This morning was tough. Really tough. It's time to go back to America tough (like that would solve our problems ;)). We are doing something something right now that is our way of powerfully honoring and fighting against Satan. And Satan is writhing in his death throes for this area of our life even worse than I am writhing with the added stress of dealing with this issue while living in the stress factory that is Cambodia - believe you me, my writhing is bad; my had is still sore where I smacked the wall in sheer frustration over a minor problem earlier today.

I need to start my make-up routine again, except I am considering war paint...It is going a war for 86 more day...a war for the rest of my life. I need to be ready. We all need to be ready.

So I leave you with this dialogue from Ocean's Twelve which I am embarrassed I have watched but am glad for this line...because I am sure you are all wondering about the something. So paint two black lines under your eyes and get your spear, have a laugh at the quote, then get back to fighting!

Linus Caldwell: Hey, can I ask you something? You ever notice that...
Rusty Ryan: If you're gonna ask if you can ask me a question, give me time to respond. Unless you're asking rhetorically, in which case the answer is obvious - yes.
Linus Caldwell: Okay, can I ask you...
Rusty Ryan: Yes.
Linus Caldwell: Thanks. You ever notice that Tess looks...
Rusty Ryan: Ooh, don't ever ask that. Ever. Seriously. Not to anyone, especially not to her.
Linus Caldwell: Wait, why not?
Rusty Ryan: Look, it's not in my nature to be mysterious. But I can't talk about it and I can't talk about why.
