My sister Emma has been the most amazing example of this to me. She has seemed to have the joy of Christ in her since she was a tiny baby. Not just the normal, "Oh, she's a happy person" type, but a strength and joy that so obviously comes from her relationship with God. The kind of thing you see and you want that relationship too.
So these are my Monday morning thoughts, as I drink my huge water bottle with lemon and vitamin C. This outfit was a simple one, and I was kind of surprised when I put it together that I hadn't worn it before. Or, if I had, I hadn't blogged it. :P It's just monochromatic browns with oatmeal accents. I wore this scarf on the inspiration of a commenter who asked why I don't wear scarves more. It added the last bit of warmth I needed yesterday and served as a headcovering during church (just wrapped it around my head like the ladies in the 50's when they drove convertibles ;)) without giving me hat hair. Also, although you can't tell from these pictures, it finished my outfit with some much-needed sparkle. :)
