I was inspired by the last Feminine Friday outfit that featured a denim skirt and this cardigan. I decided to wear this chambray skirt as it fits better than my other denim skirts right now.
I’ve been thinking a lot about loveliness lately. The world around us sends a message that we should look sexy, or try to keep up with the Jones next door.
I long for loveliness, whether it is my house being neat and tidy (not necessarily expensive furniture, neat and tidy looks lovely to me!), my homeschool days flowing smoothly, my relationships with my husband and children flourishing and growing, and yes – lovely outfits that reflect the feminine woman I hope to be.
I don’t feel like it’s wrong to pursue loveliness, as the Bible talks about thinking on things that are lovely!
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things arehonest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8.
We just have to balance wanting to pursue loveliness with knowing that the Christian should not be surprised if trials and persecutions come.
“ My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3 knowing this, that the trying of your faith worth patience.” James 1:2-3
The Lord made so many lovely things. Think of the flowers, the beautiful sky, newborn babies…there are so many gorgeous things straight from creation!
I want to pass on the gift of loveliness to my children. One way is to teach them to be content in the little things. We are going to start this brand new study together called “A Content Heart, Finding Godly Contentment in a Me-First World.” It was just released and is almost 50% off, only through today!
This study comes at the perfect time, so many children struggle being content as they walk through the stores this time of year! I’m really looking forward to doing this with my children!
