{In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven} - Matthew 5:16

Yes, I know I may seem dumb, but today is all about shining.  The sermon at church today was about being fruitful and sharing your spiritual gifts.  I think many of us tend to not use those gifts or either we don't know what they are.  I know I am still searching for mine, but I did realize that I want to make my actions shine for Christ.  Our preacher was emphasising the fact that you and only you will be responsible for your actions when God comes back.  

Also today, I found a wonderful blog thats dedicated "shine".  I'm just beginning reading it and I already love her compassion for others and her almost daily challenges that can give you a little pick-me-up.  So, go check her out over at The Shine Project.

And on a final note, I was listening to K-Love today {a contemporary christian radio station if you've ever heard of it} and they annonced the David Crowder Band's new music video to SMS: Shine.   This is the cutest and just simply amazing video I think I've ever seen! The graphics are not computerized; over 700,00 (that's right!) bright LED pegs were used to make the animations on a LITE-BRITE.  Amazing right? I told you.

{If he sins against you seven times in the day, and seven times returns, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.}  - Luke 17:4

Excuseee meee! I'm sorry for the lack of posts recently.  Our family computer suffered a bit of a problem and is being worked on currently.  So for now, yall will just have to bear with me!  Today, I decided to go with a New York cab look, as you can see with the bright pop of yellow. 

These black pants are a debut on the blog...scored at the local goodwill, I'm proudly sporting my Ann Loft's today!  Also, some of you may know a jewelry designer that I love...Betsey Johnson (Betseyville).  Her pieces are so unique and I love them.  Today, I'm showcasing a set I was given for christmas..

Excuse me know for the load up on pictures! Today, I decided to play around with my camera.  The sun was beautiful outside and I couldn't resist going out there to take pictures.  I tried to do a couple of different backgrounds and lighting but I never could quite get a good picture.  Alot of these are blurry because of my tripod and the wind..sorry! I would love for any suggestions on outdoor pictures.  Thanks!

Today, I bring you my first outside post!

      {But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.} - Psalm 86:15

It may not seem like much, but today is my very first outside post!  Since beginning my blog, i've been contained to my room because its been freezing outdoors.  I've been dying to try out my camera outside because i've seen so many other blogs with beautiful pictures.  I think the background makes the outfit look much more interesting and not just standing infront of a camera! So what do you think? Any tips?
I decide to wear this outfit today because the sun was shinning bright and it was so warm..i'm talking 50's.  This adorable romper was my score at a end of season sale last year.  I love the ridiculously wide legs (the boyfriend thinks of them as elephant legs).
