Wardrobe Inspiration : Pretty in the Kitchen

So I thought I would make today's wardrobe inspiration all about being a pretty baker in the kitchen. You don't have to look frumpy even if you are cooking. Most of these things come from Anthropologie, ModCloth, or Williams Sonoma.  Enjoy!

Baby - Wardrobe Inspiration

I have decided to honor Life in today's Wardrobe inspiration. Enjoy all of the adorable baby things!

"Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward."
-Psalm 127:3

Choosing Life

This is a beautiful little story about how one woman chose life. Her baby is the famous blind classical romantic singer, Andrea Bocelli.

"....therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:"
-Deuteronomy 30:19

In Honor of the Unborn

The judges sat outside the Law
And in their pride no evil saw
In setting teeth to Satan's jaw
And feeding him our children.
When viewed in terms of cost and ease An unborn child is a disease
A holocaust seen fit to please
Our own convience.
A curse A curse the Law it cries.
A curse a curse on mankind's pride.
A curse on him who would deny
God's image in mankind.
Torn from out their mother's womb
Denied the sky - denied a tomb Conceived in lust to their own ruin
A sacrifice to pleasure.
The doctors with their blood red hands Who love their money more than man, With greed their god they lay their plans The butchers of mankind.
A curse a curse the blood cries out
A curse a curse the heavens shout
A curse a curse on he who flouts
God's image in mankind.
O rid us of this evil, Lord .......

-Kemper Crabb

Today, January 22, is the anniversary of  "Roe vs. Wade" which made abortion legal in the United States. For 38 years now it has been legal to kill unborn babies in America. Every month, around 100,000 unborn babies are murdered. We MUST intercede for them, pray for their parents, protest abortion, and do whatever God leads us to do to stop this horrible thing in our country.

Wardrobe Inspiration : A Walk down a Snowy Lane

We have been getting a lot of pretty snow here in Eastern Kentucky. The other night I was trying to catch some on my tongue. That was fun. This outfit would be perfect for walking down a country lane on a cold winter day...and arriving to hot apple pie and hot chocolate!

.....Teach me the art of taking minute vacations...of slowing down to look at a flower, to chat with a friend, to pat a dog, to read a few lines from a good book....."
