Spring is a time for new life and joy restored. (Seriously, winter can draaaag!) I find it best portrayed with pretty florals and cheerful colors. There is just something about the budding life and warm sunshine that brings an extra bounce to my step, and it makes me want to hide away all those dark hued clothes! (Though don't get me wrong, I am a lover of black..)
This is not only about my wardrobe, but my heart as well. I have felt that I have been in a rut. Exhausted from lack of sleep and all the jobs I am called to get done as a wife and mom. Discouraged from pouring myself into starting this blog, constantly wondering if it is all worth it. Comparing myself to others and coming up short. Believing the lies that I am not good enough. The stress of raising three kiddos, finding ways to bring in extra income, and all the little things on my plate. It is easy to get in these ruts, easy for it to turn to depression and complacency. But it is in these valleys that God shows up in big ways. He has been whispering to my heart Philippians 4:8 ;
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
Whatever is true. What is pure and lovely and admirable. I find as I begin to think on these things, rather than focusing on untruths, I am filled with peace and joy and confidence. The truth is this ; God knows what He is doing and He has a plan for you! You are a beautiful being, created exactly as He wanted you to be. No matter your situation, don't let the lies weigh you down. Think on truth. I am still working on this myself, but I can feel the warm sunshine of God's perfect peace.
Phew. That was hard. Of course I have not hit the 'publish' button yet.... unless you are reading this, then I have! Haha. On a happier note, these jeans that you all died over, are now available for preorder in my boutique!!! You can find them here.
