Clouds + Wind + BDIB





Photobucket

I'm learning constantly that life doesn't always go your way but certain things are necessary for us to "grow" through. Notice I didn't say go through. There are things and people that move like the clouds and flow like the wind. In and out...one thing is constant is my growth. 

I'm thankful that God has allowed me to grow through all of my trials and tribulations. He's even allowed growth during my joys. Nothing I go through is too hard for Him. People will always disappoint, I will even disappoint some, and my even disappoint myself. One things for sure. God never disappoints. I'm learning to put my faith and trust in him no matter the season or "weather."

I wore this outfit to church on a windy cloudy day. The weather fit my mood that day and it gave room for reflection. But I couldn't stay gloomy for long.

I know that I'm truly blessed...I will continue to look to hills for my help. Knowing that it comes from the Lord. He will continue to give me peace and strength to make it through whatever the "wind" may bring. I have faith in His word. You know He will never put more on us than we can bear?!

Blazer/Earrings: Thrifted  Necklace: Was my Bigma's   T-shirt: Random  Skirt: Dots ($2) OLD
Boots: Bakers Farrah  Bag: A Girls Next Best Friend


And that's all the reason to smile. 
It's pretty ironic that I drafted this post about a week ago, but never posted it, and then when I went to church on Sunday our ministers scripture around his sermon was: Proverbs 3:5-6. Which says: Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct they paths, God has seriously been speaking to me these past few months. He is truly amazing. 


As stated  these pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago, before finding out about the Bloggers Do it Better challenge: Military Chic. I was trying to figure out if I would participate and what I would wear and then I remembered this look. I think it works because of the jacket. Reminds me of the British military, not too literal.
