Back in the Swing of Things

While this site has gone through several changes over the past two years, I realize many of you 'stay tuned' purely for the attempted fashion posts.
After a busy few weeks, then personal sorrow, and finding the strength to share....things are finally feeling normal again.
It's time to get back on the horse and play a little catch up with outfit posts.
Effectively, I'm BACK!
Oh- and if you only come around for WIWW posts- welcome to the 'new digs'. What do you think?
This past Sunday we finally went back to church.
God always knows what I need to hear. This week was no different.
The pastor preached on Abraham and his obedience to God. When Abraham followed God's commands with complete-childlike faith, God's promises were revealed. God made promises to Abraham and he rewarded Abraham for his obedience. (Genesis 12-22)

What a reminder to live my life with childlike faith. Leave the hard decisions up to God to sort out and live according to his commands in my life.

A sweet, sweet friend of mine gifted her little worn bloom belt to me when she saw how sad I was about losing mine. 

It's a lot easier to smile when I remember God is in control and give that control up to Him!
Are you smiling today?

Need another reason to smile...

Dang you look skinny!!
That whole outfit is cute, but how are you wearing a cardigan in the summer in the desert? Maybe it's the wind, but out here coolness come way before fashion! ;)
