I am linking up today at the WIWS link-up hosted by Fine Linen and Purple. Today is a busy day for us, but I wanted to stop and do a quick post. In a lenten reflection mode, I've been learning a lot about the concept of love this lent. And last night, I learned a little more about love. I think its easier to love certain people in your circles, whether it be family or friends or co-workers, than others, and this is especially hard for me because I tend to want to help fix everyone's problems and sometimes (most of the time usually), yo, you can't do that. Because people are people and have to figure it out for themselves, they can't be forced. The problem is that sometimes I get really down seeing the person as the problem, because to me its so blatantly obvious. But really, thats the plank in the eye parable, right? Anyway, I'm trying to work on loving these folks better, because otherwise I feel like I'm a downer, seeing these folks as problems instead of people. What are you learning this lent?
And now for the church attire:
Pondering the homily, hah! My children were super unruly today, so, I think maybe I heard 15% of it.
Dress: Old Navy ( I always wanted a maxi dress, and now I have one!)
Shirt: Halftees! Fine Linen and Purple did a post on these guys a while back and they are everything they say they are!
Belt: Amazon, as to actual retailer, I forget, it was a Christmas present. :)
Shoes: Target (My new staple boot!)
Necklace: from childhood, close up seen here.
And now I try to yank out my stair railing.
And this pose is just because my husband continued to take pictures.
Check out some more outfits and maybe some Lenten reflections at the Fine Linen and Purple link-up.
