How I Really Dressed for My Day + Q&A w/ Kay

December 15, 2018

Happy Saturday! I hope you’re doing something today to enjoy the celebration of Jesus’ birth, even if you’re doing it all by yourself. I’m baking and decorating these sugar cookies with my friend Dorothy today, but if she couldn’t join me I’d be baking them by myself anyhow. So if nothing else, turn on some Christmas music, pull out the mixer, put on your apron and bake or cook something that makes you happy. Even if you can’t eat it but need to share it with someone else!

How I Really Dressed for My Day

While I love sharing beautiful fashions and styling ideas with you gals, I really tend to dress pretty casually most days. Still, when at all possible, I try to add a little joy to my ensembles with some fun accessories, pretty colors or favorite shoes. Here’s I how I really dressed for my days recently. Oh, and these photos were taken over the course of a couple of weeks.

I wore this jeans, t-shirt and cardi combo to work from home and run a few errands.

Blessed for My Day

I think many of us love the hopeful sentiments expressed in Jeremiah 29:11. We love the assurance that God has good plans for us, and we look with anticipation for those plans to unfold. But this week, as I was reading through the whole chapter of Jeremiah 29, I discovered afresh that this encouraging verse comes in the context of suffering. God’s people were about to enter an extensive time of hardship, loss and even bondage. And it was as He was preparing them for this time of discipline that He reminded them that His overall, overarching plans for them were indeed good. 

Yuck. But the truth is we often must endure hardship in order to see the good of God’s plans come to fruition. God’s plans are not just for our comfort or happiness; they are for our “good.” His plans are for us to benefit spiritually, to become more like Jesus, to accomplish kingdom purposes, and to bring Him glory and honor. So while we can trust that God indeed has good plans for us, we must also trust Him through hardship, discipline and other difficulties. The message of Jeremiah 29:11 is not just a sweet hope-filled encouragement, it’s a reminder to hang on and trust as God works all things together for our good.

For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. ~ Jeremiah 29:11

Spread the love
xoxo, Kay
