That was my morning, until I was ironing my skirt and...dun dun dun.... the power went out! For no reason, according to the power company.
Thankfully Daddy was able to get the generator sort of going enough for me to iron my mom's outfit, but that was about it before it went off again. Not cool. What would I do without my curler, my sister do without the stovetop making breakfast, and my face without bathroom lights? It did all turn out okay in the end, with the power kicking on half an hour before we needed to leave, so I was able to squeeze in a curl... and apparently an 80's throwback kind of curl, looking at these pictures. O.o
Interesting statistic here: 74% of modern evangelical Christians do not believe in original sin- that is, that we are born depraved and dead in our trespasses. I don't want to get into a discussion about this, but how can one see the need to be "reborn" without seeing a problem with your first birth? If you believe that everyone has a little bit of good in them (or the ability to choose good or evil), instead of knowing that apart from Christ we are totally wicked, then why must we become totally new creations when we follow Him? So many implications.
So in Romans, Paul is trying to help us understand that everyone will be judged according to the truth (v.2), their deeds (v.6) and the Gospel (v.16). Also, that we will be judged individually. Not as "Americans", not as a denomination, not as families. Your dad won't be standing there explaining your actions, "Well, you see God, it was like this..." You standing alone before your Creator. Yikes.
I've probably worn this get-up on the blog before, but it's one of those awesome "basics" outfits that is perfect for crazy mornings. I think every girl needs a long printed linen skirt that's always effortless.
Skirt: Made by me
Boots: Shoe Carnival
Headcovering: Belt from my sister's pants yeeeeears ago
Earrings: Thrift storeHave an awesome week! I really really hope things will calm down soon for me to get back to Friends of Fresh Modesty and answering questions. My mind is full of sewing projects, too, and my bedroom full of fabric. I just haven't had any of my usual (which really isn't that much) energy this past week and each day was a huge struggle. Here's hoping for a better week! Blessings!
