Greetings from the Philippines! After a whirlwind of events with my laptop (a water accident, keyboard replacement, re-installation of my most used blogging programs) I am back online! And finally get to post these photos from my last few days in Cali before I flew to the RP!

Let me just say, packing for these mission trips was not easy! A week into the Philippines I was already borrowing my Lola’s duster/nightgown. I thank God for my auntie who gave me some of her hand-me downs which consist of the most comfortable shift dresses with patterns that vary from dainty lace to abstract geometric shapes. Exhibit A, this ’80s printed, lightweight, and above-the-knee dress that makes me wish I was an extra on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
“You can dress attractively without being immodest. Within the Lord’s guidelines, there is room for you to be lively, vibrant, and beautiful both in your dress and in your actions.”

Whew! What a refreshing Easter weekend! How was yours? 🙂
Saturday I went to Detroit for an event in which I arrived just as it ended, a classic case of a time mix up. So after I drove around the city a bit to make the drive worth it, I decided to head to SalVal for an Easter outfit. The budget was $10 and I found both these jeans and kimono (shoulder pads and all) for $8. It was meant to be!
What did you wear for Easter?

This past Friday, Bridgewood Church held “The Sisterhood Gathering: Beautifully Broken” fellowship. Over a hundred women came together and learned how to find hope in broken areas of our lives. One thing the pastor said that struck me was that we need to constantly rebuild whatever has shot or is shooting us down while battling continuous worldly attacks. As we begin a new week, my prayer is that you and whoever else may be reading this never loses hope that God has great things in store for all of us no matter who we are, where we’ve been, or what we’ve done. His love goes on.
Have a fantastic Monday, all.

“If God can bring blessing from the broken body of Jesus and glory from something that’s as obscene as the cross, He can bring blessing from my problems and my pain and my unanswered prayer. I just have to trust Him.”
