I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 © © © 

Lately, I've been feeling very weak...  physically, emotionally, spiritually.  I've been frustrated, depressed, confused...  But it's time to change my perspective.

Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me.  But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.  That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:8-10

But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.  In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.  And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.
Romans 8:25-27

Hi there!

My little helper...        ^^^^^^

Scarf: Old Navy / Tunic: Forever 21 / Leggings: Charlotte Russe / Boots: Kohl's

Here is a post of random thoughts...  and an outfit I wore way back in the beginning of November.  Since I haven't been posting at all for the last couple months, I've got a stash of old outfits that I haven't shared.  And I haven't even taken any outfit photos since December.  Well, other than a billion pics for an IG challenge I've been doing.  But more on that another day.  Everything in this outfit is super old, except the boots, which I bought last winter.  I don't even remember buying this tunic.  I didn't think I had ever even been to a Forever 21, until this past year, until I looked at the tag on this tunic and realized it was from there... 

I'm glad the Olympics are over.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE watching them.  That's the problem.  I watched Olympic coverage for hours and hours...  I could do nothing else!  I just love the stories of the athletes, and the history lessons, and the wipe-outs!  Good stuff!  But it feels good to not be glued to my television anymore.

I can't wait for The Bachelor to be over!  I'm pretty sure I already know who Juan Pablo picks...  and I don't even care!  I just don't have a good feeling about him, and no matter what happens, I don't think it's going to last.  But I can't stop watching, either.  This week the "women tell all."  That should be fun.  And then we'll finally have the finale and we can all move on with our lives. 

I also can't wait for winter to be O.V.E.R!  As I write this, it's currently -3 degrees outside.  The highest temp in our ten day forecast is 31 degrees.  Seriously?!  It's March, and we can't even get above freezing.  Sprrriiing?  Where aaaarrre yoooooo??

While I'm here, I'm curious what sort of posts you would like to see from me?  Fashion?  Personal stories?  Random thoughts?  Do you have any specific questions you'd like me to attempt to answer?

Are You Listening?

Do you hear that??




I have been neglecting this here blog for far too long.  And I'm not even sure what I'm going to say now.  I just feel like I should break the silence.  Initially, I just wanted to take a break to focus on Christmas.  Then, I needed to turn my attention to figuring out a better school routine.  And then I just started questioning why I was even blogging, where it was going, and if I should even bother.

I have had a few people ask me to get back at it.  That feels good.  I want to feel like someone is listening.  And that I'm making a positive impact on those who are.  So am I doing that?  Am I even capable of doing that?

And do I really have TIME?  I feel like I never have enough time in the day.  To do things I need to do.  And want to do.  And I'm struggling to prioritize.

So I'm not sure how things are going to look moving forward.  I do like blogging.  And I *think* I want to continue.  But I'm just not sure what or how right now.  I have all sorts of ideas floating around in my head.  So stayed tuned.  Who knows what will happen next...
