I started a new Facebook page specifically for this blog. No, I am not getting a big head thinking I am going to have thousands of followers so I need a "fan page". It's just so that that the few of you can keep up with the blogs instead of having to look on my Facebook profile. You can also see the individual pieces I put together for the outfit in photo albums and find out where I got them.

Most of the pieces of my outfits come from places I have visited over the years. Mostly from thrift stores.
I got a lot of completes on my outfit today, including one from the pastor. A lot of people really liked my hair clip, which I later learned is called a fastener.
Service was...well...all over the place, lol.
First we had a baby dedication with three beautiful little girls. It was very beautiful, moving, and the girls were as good as gold.
I took my place at the front row as I always do. I like to sit in the front row because, as I have mentioned before, I have really bad A.D.D. If I sit in the back or one of the middle rows and someone is say scratching their head, coughing, checking their cell phone, etc. I tend to look at that. This way, I can fully concentrate on what the pastor is saying.
Today's sermon was kind of all over the place really. Instead of making one very strong point, Pastor A. made a bunch of really good points. I kept track in a notebook that I bring with me to church so I can remember them. I decided this year I was going to dedicate more time in studying the word, rather than just listening to it.
One of the things he spoke about was Psalm 56:9: "when my enemies will turn back in the day when I call; this I know, that God is for me".
It goes with praise and worship song that we sang this morning that has one of the strongest bridges I have ever heard in a contemporary Christian song. I'm not even a big fan of contemporary Christian, but there are a couple of songs that I really enjoy. That bridge goes “And if our God is for us, then who could ever stops us? And if our God is with us, then what can stand against us?"
I love that! It's true. Though there are many people in this world that say "you can't do something", God tells us we can. There are people on this earth that are against us, even people who claim to be for God. But if what we do brings joy to God and is what we were meant to do, then who can stop us?
That's the philosophy I go by in life. I don't always remember at times. The critics in my life sometimes do get the best of me. Especially my biggest critic. Myself. The biggest don't voice is inside my own head. But, I have to drown it out.
This is especially true now that I am signing up for my CDA course this week. If this is what I am meant to do, then I can't let that insignificant voice tell me I can't do it!
