In a world that is all about body image issues, we never and stop and think that someone may be struggling with other self-conscious issues like personality traits. Someone might feel they are not smart enough rather not pretty enough. Or not funny enough rather than having the best skin or hair. The world is all about comparison in all things. Thank God we serve a Father who is not like the world. I have learned that putting my confidence in Jesus other then myself or others is what brings me peace. In areas I am weak, He shows himself strong. In things I’m not good at He guides my hand. Psalm 139:13-14 “For you created my inmost being you knit me together in my mother’s womb.14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Whatever kind of self-conscienceness you’re struggling with , I want you to know that God made you perfectly for His purpose for your life! He knit together all your quirks and traits that others may not appreciate! When the enemy starts attacking you with self conscious issues, Rememeber you are fearfully and wonderfully made!
If you’re feeling discouraged by what people say or have said about you I want to ask you a question. Whose voice are you going to listen to? Where is what they’re saying coming from? If what they’re saying doesn’t line up with what God says about you in His word that you are loved, chosen and here for a purpose (Romans 8:28, Jeremiah 29:11, John 15:9) then it’s coming from the enemy and it is simply not true. The Bible says the enemy is the “accuser of all brethren” Remember that. The song by Lauren Daigle says “ You say I am loved, when I can’t feel a thing” even in times when you can’t feel His love for you because what people say have said has gotten you down remember this, People will never be able to love you the way God does, so why care they think? Human love will fail but His love never does. Paul says in Romans 8:39 “Nothing in all creation can separate from the love of God which in Christ Jesus”.
Isaiah 43:19 “Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wildnerness and rivers in the desert”
Sometimes we cannot perceive the things God is about to do. We may have another dream or plan in mind but none of them will result in true joy or peace if they aren’t from God. We should always submit our dreams and plans in God’s hands because He knows more than we do and more importantly He knows what is best for us.
If you’re looking for inspiration, here are our costumes from over the top weekend at a costume party! We have different ones for trick or treat night but these are pretty simple to put together if you already have a plain black or white dress…I didn’t get very many pics and these are the best ones I could find! Ps…Marilyn wasn’t in a great mood lol!
One of my favorite things about Valentines day are the bold colors and mixes of red and pink which blend so beautifully together. I always opt for either a pink or red dress for the holiday. This year I went this red number I bought right after Christmas thinking I’d wished I’d found it BEFORE Christmas…Then I realized Valentine’s day was right around the corner sooo it turned out perfectly…I tried to get my 2 year old in some of these shots but keep in mind I said “2 year old” as in “Terrible Twos” haha…Hope everyone had a blessed Valentine’s day…

I am reposting this as I have been working on redoing my whole blog and accidently deleted the post! Whoops! 😳(I would advise any blogger to do most of their work from a pc instead of trying from an iPhone lol it’s much easier! Atleast for me!) Anyway this is a perfect look so for the holidays and would even work for an early spring look!
