Various Shades of White
Hello, me again! What a topsy turvy past week it’s been. The Lord has been revealing so many things to me recently, and I’m beyond excited for this new chapter of my life I’m about to embark upon. It sounds crazy, but I love being in those seasons of doubt, wonder, anxiousness and down right disappointment because that’s where His promise is. It can be a challenge finding joy in the winters, but that’s what God calls us to do—wait in His love and kindness.
I could write for eons about Jesus, but let’s talk about this combo I sort of threw together last minute! I drew some inspiration from my Derby Guide where I talked about my love for monochromatic-ism and its chic effect. I wanted to pull pastel accents for this look so I tied a purple silk scarf around my favorite straw boater hat and opted for this pretty pink purse for an on-the-go spring outfit.
I can’t lie, I get gardening vibes from certain aspects of this look—but I’ve decided to coin the term “gardener chic” to put a positive, fashionable spin on it! Since this look inspired some gardening feels, I decided to do some research on gardening/best practices and found an amaaaaaazing article on gardening for beginners! I’ve always wanted to grow a garden and plant things—my grandmother was an avid gardener in her younger years.
I remember coming to her house for summers and feeling wonderfully lost in her endless enchanted gardens sprawling with flowers, fountains, bushes, and benches. The only problem? I’m pretty sure I have a black thumb instead of a green one. The solution? Gardening takes time and repetition. Plenty of patience.
I think just like in waiting for God’s promises to be fulfilled in our lives, waiting for the seeds we plant to grow is where our own personal growth occurs. We learn to practice patience and appreciate the magnificent results of our labor and love. Pretty neat how we can find our good Lord in every day activities right?
