Blossom print in a field of blossoms

Spring is coming. Yeah! (I say, after it was just snowing yesterday.) So is the Coronavirus. Boo. However, I found a wonderful field of flowers to jump in a couple of weeks ago. So I jumped. For joy. In the middle of my sorrow. It’s okay to find joy where you can when grieving. And that’s what I did. I see a field of flowers. I jump. I may have been crying a few days later and missing my mom, but it’s all good. I jump while I’m able to.

This top is perfect for spring. Floral, peach and fuchsia with a bow at the top – what’s not to like? I found both the blouse and corduroy leggings at Ross, so you know I got them at a very good price. Since it’s still cold out, I had a gray fringed cardigan on as well. My bright pink Kate Spade New York handbag was another splash of color to an already bright outfit. Just right for an early spring day.

 

 

Everyone stay healthy and well out there. God help us all.

Where do your feet go?

This past week I’ve been taking pictures of where my feet go and posting them on my Instagram.  The guest speaker at our church was talking about where your feet go, God goes with you and had mentioned asking people at the church he used to preach at to take photos of where there feet went that week. So off I went to take photos of where my feet went. Unspoken challenge accepted.

The feet photos that day were really great. Taken with my real camera. Out in nature while doing this photo shoot for the blog. After that, they were crappy cell phone photos mostly at or around work and at the grocery store. I really thought my feet were going to go somewhere really cool or do something really fun.

Reality is, God is going with me to work and to the grocery store. Wah. Wah. Wah. I’m sure even He’s bored with that. But in the mundane, everyday places life takes us, it’s good to know God goes with us. Sometimes work is hard. Sometimes the grocery store is boring. Sometimes we go to the grocery store after work and want to run all the slow pokes in front of us down with our grocery cart. God is still with us. I think that was the point of this exercise. Not necessarily to go out and find great adventures for our feet to go on, but to know God is there in the here and now. In what we’re really doing every day. There’s comfort in knowing that.

 

On to the outfit. I found this crushed velvet tunic top at Village Merchants consignment shop down in Portland when I went a few weeks ago with my sister and nieces and son. The shoes are super cute denim bow sandals I got a TJ Maxx a few years ago. The white stretchy pants I just got at Kohl’s recently. If they’d stop getting dirty when I traipse about in the woods in them, I’d wear them more often. They are that comfortable. Flowers from the Gresham Saturday Farmers Market.

Yes. I walked out on a fallen log across a small creek at some point while taking photos. In wedge sandals.

Where will your feet take you this week? Just remeber, where you’re going, God goes with you. Even in the mundane boring-ness of everyday life.
