A Little Bit of This

No big, fancy outfits around here lately, just a few everyday-doing-this-thing-called-life outfits.

This was such a gray day, you can tell by the lighting. I was wearing a dark purple sweater, and I looked at myself in the mirror and thought, “This shirt is making you look tired & sad. You need color.” So I swapped for my yellow sweater (current clearance at Target, fyi!), my peach Caroline G. bubble necklace, and my hot pink Radiant cosmetics lipstick. Much better!

Crushing hard on this color combo of seafoam and raspberry lately. 
And who doesn’t love some Minnetonka mocs?
The snow was swirling in an ethereal way this morning: circular, horizontal, dream-like. 
I felt like I was inside of a snowglobe, truly.
Quite lovely. 

Textures

This outfit is jam-packed with texture. A metal necklace, a silk shirt, a cotton scarf, a tweed jacket, corduroys, and suede wedges.

I’ve been thinking today how God sometimes takes things from us for a season. 
Our God who gives and takes.
Do you know what I mean?

Sometimes God says, “Here, you know what? We’re going to take this thing and put it on the shelf for a bit. Let’s focus on something else for a little while.” 
This feels so scary. It feels very unsettling. 
But the cool thing is, our God is a detail-oriented God. 
And oftentimes, He takes things we thought got shelved, and He works them back into our lives in the coolest ways.
You know, He works them together like mixing different textures. It may sound silly, but its true…He puts together our lives with the finesse of a God who cares about the details. A God who cares about the beautiful big picture.
Oh I just love that.
