On Sunday, when I woke up, I immediately realized I was going to be super late for church. I literally had 30 minutes to get up, shower, dress, and get there before service began. Needless to say, I was 20 minutes late :-( But I'm so glad I forged ahead. My pastor is working on a series for Advent Season titled 'This Christmas' and the first sermon was "Our Message", then it was "Our Mission", and this past Sunday's sermon was titled "Our Meaning". The text was Isaiah 9:1-7. The pastor spoke on recent events in the news and wove the message in a way that was easy to understand and very relatable to the present times.
With everything that's going in our world, just remember the true meaning of 'This Christmas' is Jesus. You have to have a 'nevertheless' attitude about every situation you face. You have to ask yourself "Is it Over?". Keep reminding yourself that as long as you have breath in your body, it ain't over. Thank the good Lord he gives us a chance to start over and find another way!
I decided to finally wear this dress I recently purchased. I was nervous about the material. Honestly, it's a little 'cheap' looking and it's stretchy. I really try to dress like a chic, modern, elderly woman for church. I'm super conservative.....not trying to put on a façade or anything (we all know I love my bodycons) but my focus should be on the Word and not how I'm looking.
The skirt portion slightly pulls across my thighs in an unflattering way when I'm walking. I definitely don't like that but, short of loosing 15 lbs from thighs, butt, and hip.....it's not going to change much.
This dress was scooped up super quick because it has pockets! Yaaaaayyyyy!!!
BTW, I'm loving my new heels..........which is what I say about every new pair of shoes!!! SMH
