Guest Post: Rebekah's Outfits

Hi, I'm Paige's friend Rebekah. Upon Paige's request, I'd like to share a couple outfits with you. These outfits really make me think of autumn, and even winter. They have a warm look, and work well for any lady, really. <3 Enjoy!




I love this outfit because it has a "fallish" look. I chose to do darker jeans, but I've found that a lighter wash works just as well. The leather jacket is warm, but stylish. This outfit also looks great with light brown heels if it's a warmer day.

A Walk and an Outfit

 

  Good afternoon, ladies! Another week is in full swing. It's been a little while since I've given you more than a brief life update, so here goes!
   Lately, I've been babysitting for one family regularly at least once a week and on many weeks I have one or even two other childcare jobs. Last week I babysat at least a bit each day from Monday - Friday! I also have a once-a-week cleaning job of my own and one that I help my mom with whenever it works out. In addition to having jobs, there are things like teaching children's church, attending Bible study, blogging, volunteering at the pregnancy care center, practicing photography....life is full! Transitioning into the life of an adult has been a little bit stressful for me at times, I admit. All the same, it's exciting, and I enjoy the feeling of earning my own money and learning skills that will be useful for the rest of my life. :)

50's Inspired Casual Outfit

  

  It's already Thursday, my friends! Due to certain circumstances (mainly me being easily distracted and having trouble focusing), I didn't get this post up yesterday. I thought Thursday would be a better day anyway. Right? ;) I any case, I'll stop this nonsense and get on to the outfit.

Giveaway Winner! / Taking Time to be With God

   Last night, the time had come to choose the winner of Sunday Best's Blogoversary Giveaway.


All the names were in the hat. 


The suspense grew as I mixed up the entries.


Who would it be?!? How intense could my face get?!?
( I have to post this pic to remind you that most of what ends up on here is the 
cream of the crop out of many silly shots :P)

*drum roll please*


   We had a winner! Congratulations Cassie! You just won a purse! :D Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway. It was a great way to celebrate a year of blogging.
 
  So, what have you ladies been up to lately?  I am quite busy this week (yes, I said that AGAIN) with a small cold to boot! This whole "being an adult" thing can get kind of exhausting. ;) Anyway, I just might be able to get an outfit post up tomorrow afternoon or evening. It's been far too long!
   Whatever you are up to, I hope that you are taking time to be with the Lord each day. Even when your day seems completely full, try your best. Most of us have little nuggets of time we could be spending with the King. For example, I brought my Bible to my babysitting job today and had devotional time while the baby I was caring for took a nap.
   Sometimes, I can feel extra stress coming on when I haven't had quiet time with God in a couple of days - that's right folks...I'm not always faithful with my quiet times! Those dry spells remind me of how much I need it. Though we should not be so strict with our devotional times that it just makes things more stressful, being faithful does take discipline, because our flesh doesn't want to sit around praying and reading the Word. I encourage you to find the balance between schedule and spontaneity in your walk with the Lord and take time to be with Him.
   
Can you relate to having extra stress or anxiety during times when 
you haven't taken time to be with the Lord? 
Do you lean more towards have a strict, scheduled quiet time or a relaxed one?

" But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul."
~Deuteronomy 4:29
