This week at church we had a guest speaker from Coastline Church in Carlsbad CA named Aaron Jayne. His message was titled "The Secret of John"...so so good. This was a life changing message about learning to see life through Jesus' love for us, rather than our love for Him. Pastor Aaron pointed out the differences in Peter's walk and John's walk with Christ. Peter was constantly acting out of His love for Jesus, yet never quite measuring up. John, on the other hand referred to himself as "the one whom Jesus loved..." always focusing his actions through Christ's love for Him instead. Wow...what a powerful lesson. The more we live in Christ's love for us, the more we see God in every bit of our lives. We no longer feel the need to measure up, because we are loved no matter what, and our actions come out of that perfect love, rather than our limited love. If you would like to listen to this amazing message, you can do so here.
The next best thing about Sunday is getting to where our Sunday's Best...hence the name of this post.
So here goes:
Blouse: H&M Skirt: Thrifted (Old Navy) Shoes: Gifted
Bracelets: Gifted Watch: Michael Kors
This is good example of creating an entirely new outfit out of pieces you've had for a while. I am finally warming up to the idea of mixing browns and blacks and it being ok. :)
(Courtney says you pulled it off! )
Dress: Thirfted (Vera Wang) ... original post where I bought it.
Bracelet: Thrifted Watch: Amazon (Invicta)
Necklace: Charming Charlie (clearance)
This is my new FAVORITE dress... The under layer is jersey material, so it is oh so comfy! And it is perfect for that day when you are running late and don't have time to think up an outfit!
Well, that's how our Sunday went down! Many more posts to come about what God's bringing to our church, and what outfits we are sportin'.
