Things just keep getting brighter and brighter around here! It seems as though the change in temperature has brought about a change in my color choices. When it’s hot out side, the most comfortable thing for me to wear is the beloved maxi-dress.
The Friday before what is commonly referred to as “Easter” or more accurately “Resurrection Sunday”, is what is known as good Friday. This week’s favorite thing is this sermon by Dr. S.M. Lockridge.
I have been in the mood for patterns lately. I don’t know if it’s the Spring weather or what. I’m not complaining though. I love to dress in black and white and add a bit of color. I find it less intimidating to use neutrals and then add a bright shade as an accent.
A few years ago, I attempted to make a natural cream for my hair and skin. I haven’t looked back since. I now use it everyday in lieu of my Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works lotions (which I was obsessed with for years). Since making the change, my skin has improved by leaps and bounds. I have made several different versions of this, and I usually don’t make it the same way twice, but these are basics.
Daily devotional books have been an absolute blessing to my walk with God. Have you ever had a day when you open the Bible and you didn’t know what to read? I have had plenty of days like that. The solution for me has been reading a daily devotional book. These are just two of my personal favorites.
It is finally getting and staying warm outside!
I claim the staying warm part in faith. I said that with an exclamation, but I usually find that dressing for Spring and Summer has many more difficulties for the modest woman than piling on the clothes in the Fall and Winter months. Ross is one of my favorite stores for dress shopping. They have an annual dress sale, which is like hitting the lottery for someone whose wardrobe is exclusively dresses and skirts. The down side is, many of the dresses are too short, sleeveless, or cut too low in the top. (This dress is all of the above for me.) However, I have learned that with a little bit of effort, you can make it weerrrrkk work.
