lace and life

 So, I am too lazy to edit these pictures, but after 2 weeks of meaning to put these up here, I say this is progress.
 Life has been busy lately, but wonderful. My job has challenged me (more on that later), and has its ups and downs, but it has been great! School has kept me on my toes. Add wanting to have a social life to the mix. You do not want to know how long it has been since I've vacuumed. Ehh. It's not like I generally  eat off the floor anyway.

I was so excited about the cost of this outfit!
Outfit details:
Dress - Target (for 5 dollars!)
Slip - Thrifted (50 cents-ish)
Jacket - Thrifted (10 dollars)
Shoes that you can't see :D - Thrifted (50 cents)

the hazy sky

I can't find my camera. :/

But that isn't important right now. As many of you may know, Texas has been dealing with a lot of fires lately. I'm 15-20 minutes away from one. I hadn't really worried about it, because it was on the outside of the other side of town.

It is hard to hear of everyone who has been evacuated and those that have lost houses. They were able to save 2 1/2 houses in one neighborhood. However, the community has been amazing and really pulled together. Also, some people have come to know Christ through this.

It got me thinking about how much value I place on possessions, and whether or not I'd be able to give those up, everything up, like Job. Do I trust that God is working in the midst of a crisis? Does Christ really satisfy all my needs?

My dad wants us to pack an emergency suitcase. It has gotten me worried. To give all my worry to Him, to trust Him alone!

stirring up autumnal thoughts

 This is a picture (that needs to be cropped. that frown also needs to switch directions) from when I was taking pictures for future Ebay listings. Since then, I haven't decided when I will part with this skirt, I love its uniqueness. I wore it today. :)
Speaking of today, I feel like I got a glimpse of Autumn for the first time this year. Strong, unusual, refreshing winds that wrapped around me and left me excited. It also gave me a stronger desire to find a blazer to add to my wardrobe.

I cannot believe it has just been the first week of school. My nervousness is gone and I am excited about these classes (excepting the Lab in Chemistry). I don't mind homework  and studying so much, I just hope my new job won't make it difficult to find time to study. During this week, I've seen and realized a few things
about myself. May I give all my insecurities to Him who gives me strength.

Anyone else started school?
