Words to live by: “Have you prayed about it as much as you have talked about it?”
I read this quote on Facebook this week and it stopped me in my tracks. I mean, I tend to want to talk things out with my friends, my hubby, my co-workers….But do I pray about ‘it’ as much? There are so many places in scripture where we are directed to pray. God wants to hear about ‘it’ from us. One example is in Colossians 4:2 Devote yourselves in prayer, being watchful and thankful. Our persistence in prayer is an expression of our faith – our faith that God answers prayer.
Friends, I stopped by the mall tonight to pick up a birthday gift for my daughter. I knew it was going to be an exercise in self control to be face to face with all those darling spring outfits, but man – It. Was. Torture. I actually think I hyperventilated as I walked through one store! I’m so ready for something new and cute to wear. Something new, cute and floral printed!
Here is an outfit I wore this week. If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you have probably seen this same outfit last year.
I chose to wear my navy pants with a kelly green blouse. I forgot to get a picture of it, but I left the back of the blouse untucked. I think it gives the outfit an up to date feel. Also, I like to take every chance I can get to cover my backside. #bodyissues
That reminds me, another thing thing I’m going to look for when I lift my shopping ban is longer shirts. I just feel better in them as opposed to shirts that hit just below my waist.
Have a great weekend my sweet friends!
